Through an international range of case studies from the 1870s to the present, this volume analyzes strategies of display in department stores and modern retail spaces. Established scholars and emerging researchers working within a range of disciplinary contexts and historiographical traditions shed light on what constitutes modern retail and the ways in which interior designers, architects, and artists have built or transformed their practice in response to the commercial context.
"Architectures of Display is an important and welcome addition to the scholarship of interiors, retailing, and consumption. The rather neglected topic of merchandising displays is examined through international examples ranging from Victorian and later model rooms to contemporary digital fashion retailing. The fascinating case studies in the volume, not only engage with particular historic moments in retail design, but as a volume emphasize the crucial importance of the visual when engaging with consumers." Clive Edwards, Emeritus Professor of Design History, Loughborough University, UK

"Recounting the ways that show-window designers have piqued consumer desire, Architectures of Display reveals a major portal through which modernity entered everyday life. Covering more than a century of practice with detailed case studies, it suggests the breadth of approaches to retail presentations as well as their shared goal of creating visual narratives that shape our relationships with material objects. In doing so, Architectures of Display provides an historical perspective on our current era of unrelenting self-presentation." Sandy Isenstadt, Professor of History of Modern Architecture, University of Delaware, USA

"In its interrogation of the architecture of display, and display as integral to architecture's cultural impact, this collection moves far beyond conventional studies of consumption. Its contributions are multiple and compelling: it situates the emergence of the display window and the department store within an expanded history of architecture's material effects; it argues that techniques and technologies of display have been at the core of artistic experimentation; and it shows that the arrangement of consumer goods is nothing if not political." Charles Rice, School of Architecture, University of Technology Sydney, Australia

"Generously illustrated and historically adventurous, Architectures of Display is a scintillating exploration of how wealthy societies have been seduced by a world of commercial retailing. By concentrating on the dazzling and inventive theatrics of department stores this volume is an essential guide to the aesthetics of commodity culture. It is highly recommended to anyone wanting to understand our love affair with things." Ben Highmore, Professor of Cultural Studies, University of Sussex, UK

Das Dateiformat PDF zeigt auf jeder Hardware eine Buchseite stets identisch an. Daher ist eine PDF auch für ein komplexes Layout geeignet, wie es bei Lehr- und Fachbüchern verwendet wird (Bilder, Tabellen, Spalten, Fußnoten). Bei kleinen Displays von E-Readern oder Smartphones sind PDF leider eher nervig, weil zu viel Scrollen notwendig ist.
Mit Adobe-DRM wird hier ein „harter” Kopierschutz verwendet. Wenn die notwendigen Voraussetzungen nicht vorliegen, können Sie das E-Book leider nicht öffnen. Daher müssen Sie bereits vor dem Download Ihre Lese-Hardware vorbereiten.
