Multiple generations of the same family living under one roof is not a new idea. But what is new is the way architects around the world are re-embracing this form of living, back by increasingly popular demand. While the 20th century experience emphasized a single-family home for the nuclear family and bachelor pads, we are now seeing more tiers of the family unit choosing to live together. Come Together (Working Title) explores the why, the what, the where and, perhaps most importantly, the how of the homes that succeed to be livable for all generational tiers – with designs that are not only architecturally stunning, but balancing private and communal spaces to come together.

Charlotte Perriand was one of great designers of the twentieth century. A pioneer of modernism, her work was often overshadowed by her more famous male collaborators, who included Le Corbusier, Pierre Jeanneret and Jean Prouvé. However, in recent years her reputation as a furniture designer and architect has matched the stature of her peers – her furniture in particular has become highly prized by collectors. From the 1920s onwards, Perriand was instrumental in bringing the modernist aesthetic to interiors. But she also believed in the synthesis of the arts and was friends with visual artists such as Pablo Picasso and Fernand Léger. This book will explore Perriand’s journey from the machine aesthetic to her adoption of natural forms, and from modular furniture systems to major architectural projects such as Les Arcs ski resort. Featuring some of her most famous interiors, as well as her original furniture, her photography and her personal notebooks, this book sheds new light on Perriand’s creative process and her place in design history. It will accompany the forthcoming Design Museum exhibition of the same title, which will coincide with the twenty-fifth anniversary of Perriand’s last significant presentation in London, held at the Design Museum in 1996.

Up until about a century ago, wood had always been the only available material for the construction of the first bicycles, and it was as recently as the 1950s that wood was the only material used for bike wheels in all competitive cycling realms. These days, in opposition to the great industrialisation of steel manufacturing, wood and bamboo are increasingly being used to create a niche space in design within the industries of transportation, sport, art, culture and indeed modern lives in general. With the significant advances in technological research and application, wood and bamboo are increasingly being promoted as materials suitable for the construction of bicycle frames and individual bicycle components. Showcasing more than 250 designers from around the world, including craftspeople (many of them renowned bicycle makers), manufacturers and associated organisations, this book dedicates hundreds of pages to beautiful bike designs, illuminating the latest modern trends in specialist bicycle craftmanship. Set out with detailed, distinctive design dialogues from each craftsperson or manufacturer, we learn how wood and bamboo are being enhanced and developed as extremely durable, aesthetically appealing materials, and which are considered sustainable, ecologically viable, user friendly and dynamic across each application. Beautifully illustrated, with historical references and texts by experts in the trade, and backed up with technical engineering knowledge.
Features a wide range of bike designs, including wooden bikes, bamboo bikes, wooden balance bikes for children, and wooden bike components
Themes are introduced with personal flourishes and comments by designers featured throughout the book, making the text quite accessible to all audiences
Each design is accompanied by a detailed explanatory text that shows the thought process of the designer, the challenges and the benefits of the construction
Includes essays by renowned bike industry aficionados, who impart significant historical background on the advantages of the wooden bicycle, as well as current thoughts on trends
Highly illustrated, with high-quality detailed close-up photography of bikes and their components throughout
Lists a handy reference guide for those looking to source components or design contacts
With a year full of new practices necessary for coping with the pandemic, one phenomenon has been particularly well-documented: an unprecedented bike boom. As biking made its way to the forefront of many peoples’ routines, the past months of lockdowns brought about a dramatic increase in bicycle sales: New bikes have been in short supply for months, cities have redesigned their streets to accommodate an influx of cyclists, and people have been looking for new ways to escape from the daily routines and explore their surroundings on self-sufficient trips.
As the minimalist, off-the-beaten- track evolution of traditional bike touring, bikepacking is a fusion of multiday backpacking and mountain biking that enables the ultimate freedom: “fast enough to cover a whole continent in a reasonable time but slow enough to see very many interesting things,” as experienced traveler Frank van Rijn says best. What matters most is the journey, not the destination—experiencing and going places, but without much urgency of arrival is what really makes the pursuit. Choosing the roads less traveled, connecting to the surroundings every pedal of the way: Bikepacking is more than a method of transportation—it’s a vibrant traveling philosophy. This book is designed to celebrate this life in the slow, off-the-beaten lane—active travel and the sense of adventure, independence and the freedom at bikepacking’s core. Readers will find themselves immersed among a host of geographies and terrains—from overnight city escapes in Europe to three-week expeditions in the Tibetan backcountry. But, if there was one recurring theme riding through it? Bikepacking is not all about the bike, more the journeys and worlds it opens up: remote mountain passes and hidden suburbs; alpine hut arrivals and lowland bivvy lookouts; coastline crab cookouts and col-top coffee stops; plunge pool swims and shoreline surf spots; group social and solo challenges; tame tarmac and gnarly gravel; challenges and cultures; and, most of all, people, place, and possibility.
Bikepacking presents a roundup of real journeys from all around the world and for all levels of experience, as told by their protagonists—from beginner to expert, short to long, mild to wild, solo to family trips with young children—and gives the readers the lowdown on the tips and tricks to plan their expeditions. After all, bikepacking doesn’t have to mean long haul. If the pandemic has shown us anything, it is an appreciation for local, accessible adventures and escapes from your doorstep, and the importance of stewardship of the great outdoors and the world’s wild places. Co-edited by expert bikepacker Stefan Amato, this book is an invitation to pack a bag and prep the bike—adventure awaits!
The book includes 10 HOW TOs with first-hand tips and advice to plan one’s own adventure:

Bikes, Bags & Setups
