From Dezeen: Eileen Gray

Eileen Gray's first major architecture project - her modernist E-1027 villa on the south coast of France

A modernist villa on the south coast of France, which was designed by Eileen Gray and lived in by Le Corbusier, is captured in photos by Manuel Bougot. Completed in 1929, E-1027 was the first major architecture project by Gray, who was one of the pioneers of the modernist movement. The property is now considered to be one of the most important buildings of the international style."The significance of E-1027 is that it is both an example of avant-garde modernism and a subtle critique of the functionalist element in modernism," Tim Benton, a trustee at Cap Moderne and Open University emeritus professor, told Dezeen.  From Dezeen Weekly 18 Sept 2018  Photo's from Dezeen Weekly

About environmental quality and the long term livability of cities in low-lying coastal areas or located in large river deltas. How will city form and landscapes have to adapt within metropolitan areas.

The riddle of the real city, or the dark knowledge of urbanism Wim Nijenhuis 2017  [Interdisciplinary--Built Environment]

This publication intends to enrich our theoretical understanding of urban interventions. Urban design theorist and historian Wim Nijenhuis engages various philosophers and a spectrum of disciplines, such as urbanism, architecture, history, media science, and art, in each section: a treatise on urban history, essays about the condition of the city in our media age, and meditations about epistemological problems that in turn question the practice of critical writing and propose a shift in worldview.
