Gottfried Semper and the problem of historicism by Mari Hvattum( )

18 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 994 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

By examining the historicist fusion of romanticism and positivism, the book seeks to understand the nature as well as the limits of the modern dream of an architectural "method of inventing". More than an intellectual biography, Gottfried Semper and the Problem of Historicism explores the continued influence of historicism on modern architectural discourse and practice."--Jacket
Routes, roads and landscapes by Brita Brenna( Book )

17 editions published between 2011 and 2016 in English and held by 213 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'Routes and roads make their way into and across the landscape, defining it as landscape and making it accessible for many kinds of uses and perceptions. Bringing together outstanding scholars from cultural history, geography, philosophy, and a host of other disciplines, this collection examines the complex entanglement between routes and landscapes. It traces the changing conceptions of the landscape from the enlightenment to the present day, looking at how movement has been facilitated, imagined and represented and how such movement in turn has conditioned understandings of the landscape. A particular focus is on the modern transportation landscape as it came into being with the canal, the railway, and the automobile. These modes of transport have had a profound impact on the perception and conceptualization of the modern landscape, a relationship investigated in detail by authors such as Gernot Bohme, Sarah Bonnemaison, Tim Cresswell, Finola O'Kane, Charlotte Klonk, Peter Merriman, Christine Macy, David Nye, Vittoria Di Palma, Charles Withers, and Thomas Zeller'--on Back Cover
The printed and the built : architecture, print culture, and public debate in the nineteenth century by Mari Hvattum( Book )

8 editions published in 2018 in English and Undetermined and held by 121 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Printed and the Built' explores the intricate relationship between architecture and the printed media in the fast-changing nineteenth century. Publication history is a rapidly-expanding scholarly field, one which has profoundly influenced architectural history in recent years. Yet, while groundbreaking work has been done on architecture and printing in the Renaissance, the Enlightenment, and the twentieth century, the nineteenth century has to date received little attention. This omission represents a significant gap in the understanding of architecture's cultural history - and one which 'The Printed and the Built' is the first to address. Illustrated with colourful and eclectic visual material, from panoramas to printed ephemera, adverts, penny magazines, early photography, and even crime reportage, this book consists of six in-depth thematic essays by leading figures in the field, accompanied by 18 short 'micro-histories' each examining a particular printed form. Altogether, they illustrate how new genres communicated architecture to a mass audience, setting the stage for the modern architectural era

Debatten om Stortingsbygningen 1836-1866( Book )

5 editions published in 2016 in Norwegian and Norwegian and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

I 2016 er det 150 år siden Stortinget ble innviet etter 30 år med offentlig debatt. Politikere, filosofer, diktere og byråkrater hadde heftige diskusjoner i aviser og nyhetsblader, og de folkevalgte fulgte opp med temperamentsfulle debatter i Stortinget. Gjennom utvalgte tekster fra norsk og utenlandsk presse, stortingsdebatter og regjeringsforedrag i perioden 1836-1866, presenterer Hvattum i denne boken et unikt case-studium av det norske 1800-tallets kultur- og arkitekturhistorie, politisk historie og debatthistorie. Hvattum har også skrevet en fyldig innledning som setter debatten i sammenheng og belyser samarbeidet mellom arkitektur, politikk og offentlighet i 1800-tallets Norge. Omtalen er utarbeidet av BS
Heinrich Ernst Schirmer : kosmopolittenes arkitekt by Mari Hvattum( Book )

6 editions published in 2014 in Norwegian and Norwegian and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tyskeren Heinrich Ernst Schirmer (1814-1887) var en av det norske 1800-tallets mest betydningsfulle arkitekter. Han tegnet og oppførte kirker, fengsler, skoler, stasjoner, sykehus og boliger over hele landet, deriblant Christiania botsfengsel, Gaustad asyl og Norges første jernbanestasjon. Schirmer kunne til og med ha vært arkitekt for stortingsbygningen, om ikke en tårnsky visekonge hadde grepet inn i siste liten. J.S. Welhaven beskrev Schirmer som "vor dueligste Architekt", og arbeidene hans formet det moderne Norge på avgjørende vis. Denne første større studien av Schirmer og hans arkitektur plasserer ham, ved hjelp av et rikt kildemateriale, midt i 1800-tallets kulturelle og politiske offentlighet. Schirmer var kosmopolittenes arkitekt. Arbeidene hans viser fram glemte nyanser i historismens byggekunst og minner om at 1800-tallet, for all dets kjærlighet til det nasjonale, først og fremst var et kosmopolitisk århundre

"Vor tids fordringer" : norske arkitekturdebatter 1818-1919( Book )

5 editions published in 2012 in Norwegian and Norwegian and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Arkitekturen sto sentralt i det norske 1800-tallets politiske offentlighet. Arkitekter, filosofer, kunsthistorikere, ingeniører, vitenskapsmenn, sosiologer, jurister, malere, forfattere og politikere grep ordet i nær sagt enhver sjanger, fra avhandlinger og plansjeverk til nekrologer, reiseskildringer, dikt, juryuttalelser og ville polemikker. Denne antologien gir et unikt innblikk i 1800-tallets rike publikasjonskultur. Nye institusjoner som fengsler, sykehus, jernbanestasjoner og industrianlegg er gjenstand for et hyperaktuelt kulturelt engasjement. Tekstene utfordrer samtidens og ettertidens forståelse av historisk relevans og kontemporære behov, og plasserer seg midt i den egenartede fusjonen av romantikk og rasjonalisme, historisk bevissthet og progressiv fremskrittstro som preger 1800-tallet. Antologien har en omfattende idéhistorisk innledning ved redaktørene
Hva er arkitektur by Mari Hvattum( Book )

4 editions published in 2015 in Norwegian and Norwegian and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hva er arkitektur gir en innføring i arkitektur som fenomen og fag. Forfatteren beskriver hvordan arkitektur har med både omsorg og overraskelse å gjøre, og bruker eksempler fra samtid og fortid for å beskrive feltet som rikt, innviklet og mangfoldig. Hun viser hvordan det spenner fra konkret materie til abstrakte forestillinger, og fra dørhåndtaket til byen og landskapet rundt. Mari Hvattum er professor i arkitekturhistorie og -teori. Hun underviser ved Arkitektur- og designhøgskolen i Oslo
The living tradition of architecture by José de Paiva( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Living Tradition of Architecture" explores the depth of architecture as it takes flesh in the living tradition of building, dwelling and thinking. This is a timely appraisal of the field by some of its foremost contributors. Beyond modern misconceptions about tradition only relating to things past and conducive to a historicist vision, the essays in this volume reveal tradition as a living continuity and common ground of reference for architecture. This collection of essays brings together world-leading scholars, practicing architects and educators, Alberto Perez-Gomez, Christian Frost, Dagmar Weston, Daniel Libeskind, David Leatherbarrow, Eric Parry, Gabriele Bryant, Joseph Rykwert, Karsten Harries, Kenneth Frampton, Mari Hvattum, Patrick Lynch, Robin Middleton, Stephen Witherford, and Werner Oechslin, in a single celebratory publication edited by Jose de Paiva and dedicated to Dalibor Vesely. This book provides a unique initiative reflecting the group's understanding of the contemporary situation, revealing an ongoing debate of central relevance to architecture
Drømmen om et nasjonalgalleri by Mari Hvattum( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in Norwegian and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

I slutten av mai 1845 dukket det opp en liten annonse i Morgenbladet der Nationalmuseet søkte etter lokaler: '4 til 6 rummelige, tørre og gode Værelser i et bekvemt beliggende Huus i den bedre Deel af Byen.' I 'Drømmen om et nasjonalgalleri' forteller arkitekturprofessor Mari Hvattum den fascinerende historien om Nasjonalgalleriets tidlige utvikling, frem til Skulpturmuseet åpnet i 1882. Hun byr på spennende glimt fra en kulturnasjon i emning, og setter også dagens utvikling frem mot et nytt nasjonalmuseum i perspektiv. Mari Hvattum (f. 1966) er professor i arkitekturhistorie og -teori ved Arkitektur- og designhøgskolen i Oslo. Hun har skrevet boken om Nasjonalgalleriets første arkitekt, Heinrich Ernst Schirmer
Heteronomic Historicism by Mari Hvattum( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

If classical architecture from Vitruvius to Winckelmann had been characterized by firmness, fixity, and ‘quiet grandeur’, the 19th-century monument stood anything but still. Architecture in the 19th century moved at a rapid pace, disseminated in the form of archaeological fragments, exhibition displays, texts, and images. One of the most striking examples of this newfound mobility is the proliferation of architectural images distributed by the new illustrated press. Presenting the old and the new, the high and the low, the local and the global alongside each other, the new media challenged the hegemony of classicism and opened up a new, heteronomic field of architectural expression and deliberation. Using the mid 19th-century public press as a point of departure, this essay addresses historicist attempts to legitimize architecture in an age when even monuments seemed to move
Crisis and Correspondence : Style in the Nineteenth Century by Mari Hvattum( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In his manifesto Das Kunstwerk der Zukunft (1850), Richard Wagner characterised the nineteenth century as a time of crisis. Echoing Saint-Simon, he defined this crisis as a discrepancy between the spirit of the age and the actual, historical conditions. Evoking some of the most potent concepts of modern thinking—Zeitgeist, genius, and the Gesamtkunstwerk—Wagner outlined an aesthetic theory by which the artwork (including architecture) simultaneously reflects and shapes its context, serving both as a mirror of its age and an agent of change. Wagner’s seemingly paradoxical notion of art provides an apt introduction to historicist thinking. Obsessed with the idea of correspondence (or the lack of it) between art and its times, nineteenth-century thinkers such as Heinrich Hübsch, Carl Bötticher and Gottfried Semper all responded to the perceived crisis. While Hübsch and Bötticher sought to alleviate the crisis by redefining this correspondence for a modern world, Semper presented a far more radical alternative. Not only did he see the current crisis as inevitable; he welcomed it as a necessary dissolution of an old order, out of which a new architecture could emerge. He thus anticipated modernists, such as Sigfried Giedion, for whom historicism was a necessary melt-down; an apocalypse, preparing for the advent of modernism. In this essay, I propose that crisis and style are intrinsically linked in modern thinking. To look closely at this coupling may throw new light not only on historicism but also on the noticeable unease with which the notion of style is treated in contemporary architectural history
