Apartamento is widely recognized as today’s most influential interiors magazine. International, well-designed, and simply written since 2008, it is an indispensable resource for individuals who are passionate about the way they live. Apartamento breaks the traditional magazine boundaries that separate home design from homeowner, and offers readers a glimpse inside the lived-in, often cluttered homes of celebrities and industry legends such as REM frontman Michael Stipe and indie screen queen Chloë Sevigny. The World of Apartamento is a celebration of the magazine’s 10th anniversary and features the best and most inspirational interiors from the publication’s pages. Like the magazine itself, the book is a carefully developed editorial mix—high-quality writing and beautiful photography—that communicates genuine stories and intimate moments. With more than 300 photographs and an eclectic mix of subjects like François Halard, Glenn O’Brien, Florence Welch, Paz de la Huerta, and more, the book is an inspiring look at individual design choices.

With its first book, Apartamento magazine tells the extraordinary story of the residence and studio of renowned Spanish architect Ricardo Bofill. His ambitious project began in the early 1970s when he bought an old cement factory on the outskirts of Barcelona. Over the 40 years that have followed he has made the structure, which he christened La Fábrica, his own, converting its cylindrical silos and industrial architecture into a spectacular space of light, cement, and almost jungle-like greenery. This is a one-of-a-kind look at what can happen when a unique creative mind lets loose upon an unorthodox space, as edited and designed by the staff of one of today's most internationally-beloved and dynamic shelter magazines. About Apartamento: "The burgeoning indie design movement's official international look book" --New York Times T "Quite marvellous interiors magazine with quirkiness and cool types galore." --The Guardian (UK) "One of our favourite magazines." "A very intruiging and much needed approach." --Selectism.com "A super-duper cool interiors publication, filled with inspirational photo-shoots and excellent writing" --The Independent Magazine (UK)

Perfect for use in teacher preparation courses and professional learning groups, this book shows what critical pedagogy looks like and identifies the conditions needed for it to emerge in the K–12 classroom. Focusing on and documenting their experiences with one of their most disenfranchised students, six teachers analyze and rethink what they do in the classroom and why they do it. In so doing, each comes to re-imagine who they are as teachers and as individuals. This engaging collection illuminates writing as a powerful tool for thinking deeply about how and why teachers respond to students in particular ways. Book Features: Prompts and suggested writing exercises at the end of each chapter to support teacher-writer groups. Guiding questions at the end of each chapter to support the instructional practices of K-12 teachers. Powerful stories of teachers' and students' experiences with standards, tracking practices, evaluation practices, and life. Helpful appendices, including books for further reading and an essay about the Oral Inquiry Process by Bob Fecho. “This is an important book for all teachers to read—beginners and experienced, as it confronts all of us as teachers to pay attention to the social and political contexts within which we work and consider what we often ignore—our student’s lives outside of school.” —From the Foreword by Ann Lieberman, Senior Scholar at Stanford University “Kudos to Stephanie Jones and her colleagues for making moral sense of the day-to-day craft of education.” —Carl Glickman, educator and author of The Trembling Field: Stories of Wonder, Possibilities, and Downright Craziness Stephanie Jones is associate professor in the department of educational theory and practice at The University of Georgia, and co-director of the Red Clay Writing Project.
