Dream of Venice Architecture is a journey through the remarkable Venetian urban landscape. A cadre of architects and architectural writers explore the uncharacteristic elements that make Venice unique in the world. Often the first reaction to Venice is one of feeling overwhelmed by the astonishing beauty of her existence. Dream of Venice Architecture reveals the features that contribute to incredulity, from the mysterious sotoporteghi to the complexity of Carlo Scarpa's immaculate detailing. The book includes reveries from architects who have built in the city, been inspired by the city and share in the wonder.The introduction is by Richard Goy, the international authority on Venetian architecture. He bridges the chasm between the original muddy wilderness of the 5th century and the opulence of the built environment.The dramatic photographs are by the award-winning documentary filmmaker and photographer Riccardo De Cal, who has focused his work on architects, architecture and restorations in the Veneto. He has exhibited at the Venice Biennale and the Bucharest Biennale, at the Milan Triennale, and film festivals in Lisbon, Cannes and Venice. A portion of the proceeds from each book will be donated to Fondazione Querini Stampalia. Dream of Venice Architecture is a luminous book, which portrays Venice as a magnificent living city.

Does it seem you’ve formulated a rock-solid strategy, yet your firm still can’t get ahead? If so, construct a solid foundation for business execution—an IT infrastructure and digitized business processes to automate your company’s core capabilities. In Enterprise Architecture as Strategy: Creating a Foundation for Business Execution, authors Jeanne W. Ross, Peter Weill, and David C. Robertson show you how. The key? Make tough decisions about which processes you must execute well, then implement the IT systems needed to digitize those processes. Citing numerous companies worldwide, the authors show how constructing the right enterprise architecture enhances profitability and time to market, improves strategy execution, and even lowers IT costs. Though clear, engaging explanation, they demonstrate how to define your operating model—your vision of how your firm will survive and grow—and implement it through your enterprise architecture. Their counterintuitive but vital message: when it comes to executing your strategy, your enterprise architecture may matter far more than your strategy itself.
