Back cover: "Deacon is a prototype android soldier so advanced he is referred to as an 'artificial person'. On his first extended mission, Deacon was ordered by his corporate masters to eliminate a team of scientists who knew too much--and he has failed spectacularly. Not only did he let one of his targets live, he attacked the team sent to retrieve him. Now the Corporation wants answers and they bring in the brilliant robopsychologist Dr. Clarice Maven to get them, giving her the power to make sure Deacon never fails the Corporation ever again. As the doctor cuts through his defenses, Deacon is forced to reveal the shocking events that took place on Da Vinci Four. He disobeyed orders. He murdered corporate workers. And yet he insists that his actions are those of a good soldier! Somehow Deacon's relationship with the sole survivor, 19-year-old outcast Jeff Linnell, is behind it all and Dr. Maven will stop at nothing to learn the whole truth. Deacon is clearly protecting something, but what chance does he have in fighting an adversary who can control his every move? With scenes of tense action and surprisingly tender romance, Artifice is a thoughtful and provocative science-fiction story that both women and men will enjoy."

X Agendas for Architecture considers the recent developments in the agendas for architecture, inviting a range of contributors into a structured discourse to highlight issues and extend questions on the necessity of architectural agendas. Considering the recent developments on this topic, this speculative publication hopes to collate ideas from architectural professionals to the up-and-coming generation of agenda-makers and use their knowledge over these current issues of agenda to create a book of seminal discourse for any architecture enthusiast. In 2011 the Delft University of Technology architecture research group Borders & Territories organised a symposium and lecture series entitled X Agendas for Architecture in which architects, theoreticians and scholars gave presentations of their work. The lecture series focused on four themes that were considered relevant for current architectural and scholarly practices, "Aesthetics of Sustainable Architecture", "Territories of Drawing, History", "Collective Memory and Politics" and "Experimentation in Architectural Design". Centred around these themes, X Agendas for Architecture is located in the desire to formulate a clear statement with respect to issues deemed important and fundamental. Includes 26 essays from contributors such as Marcis Cruz, Manuel Gauza, Sarah Lorenzen, Martine de Maeseneer, Leonel Moura, Christopher Platt, Javier Quintana, Michiel Riedijk, Francois Roche, Patrick Schumacher, Alejandro Zaera-Polo and Weimin Zhuang.

Mimesis broadly concerns the work of lynch architects--with a focus on the practice's interest in the ideas of mimesis and civic architecture--and revolves around their recent body of work in Victoria Street, London, including Kings Gate Court, Westminster City Hall and Kings Gate, Westminster City School and the Zig Zag Building.With a view to rebuilding the Victoria Street area of the city, which is punctuated by a number of pedestrian post-war buildings, Lynch Architects, through its use of materials, approach to public space and treatment of the deep facades that are hallmarks of the practice's architecture, are enriching the city such that it becomes a genuinely informed public space. Here the public and building users alike can participate with pleasure in a civic architecture, given all of the historical depth this term implies from the Renaissance through to contemporary architectural and urban theory.The book also foregrounds Lynch Architects' collaborative practice with artists and designers including Rut Blees Luxemburg and Timorous Beasties. Also featured are some of the practices' early celebrated works such as Marsh View, Norfolk.
