Art house( Visual )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Narrated by author and critic Alastair Gordon, Art House is a journey into the private worlds created by a handful of America's most eminent artists and designers, from the romantic (Hudson River School painter Frederic Church's Olana) to the futuristic (urbanist Paolo Soleri's silt-casted structure Cosanti). Each of the homes and studios in Art House, such as Russel Wright's Manitoga and Henry Chapman Mercer's Fonthill, are deeply imbued with the unique vision of its creator, and a physical embodiment of what it means to be an artist, to live an integrated life dedicated to art. For the most part the artists were not architects, and built over a lifetime (Henry Varnum Poor's Crow House, and maverick artist Raoul Hague) giving each place a sense of resonance and duration that most architecture doesn't possess. George Nakashima and Paolo Soleri, who did train as architects, gave precedence to a craft-based approach to building their houses."--Container

Conversations with Paolo Soleri by Paolo Soleri( Book )

6 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Paolo Soleri's architectural-philosophical thinking sets forth fundamental reformulations to address the globalizing world's most urgent environmental, urban infrastructural, and socio-ethical problems. In this book, Soleri's most recent philosophical-architectural ideas are distilled into a concentrated overview that is more accessible to the general reader than his previous books. Soleri proposes to transform our societal systems while raising the sights of the reader to a radically long-term and humanistic perspective. Among the interrelated concepts outlined here are Soleri's highly original ideas of orchid and forest, the city as hyper-organism, the urban effect, and the love project, to name a few. These inspiring ideas are acutely timely in light of current environmental trends: responding to global climate change, radically reducing oil dependence, embracing frugality and reduced consumption, while simultaneously confronting issues of suburban sprawl, urban renewal, smart land use, and wise food production. Compiled from Soleri's most recent personal notebooks (2004 2009), this work includes an original interview covering the breadth of his architectural and educational career and essays by Marco Felici and Youngsoo Kim
Soleri : architecture as human ecology by Antonietta Iolanda Lima( Book )

3 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Architect, philospher, craftsman, and pioneer of ecologically sound design, Paolo Soleri is a pivotal figure in twentieth-century architecture. Born in Turin in 1919, Soleri first came to the United States to work with Frank Lloyd Wright in the 1940s, but he soon broke from the master and began developing his own plans for a city of the future, based on the concept of "arcology" (architecture sympathetic to ecology)." "This comprehensive monograph, the first on Soleri to be published in the United States, documents his entire career, from his early work with Frank Lloyd Wright to his seminal ceramics factory (built in Vietri sul Mare, Italy), to his later design for arcologies. Complementing the drawings, sketches, and photographs is an authoritative text by Antoinetta Iolanda Lima, who traces the fascinating evolution of this unique architect throughout his long career."--Jacket
