Intentions in architecture by Christian Norberg-Schulz( Book )

123 editions published between 1962 and 2014 in 7 languages and held by 1,160 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of this book is to develop an integrated theory of architectural description and architectural intention (and this includes the intention of the user as well as that of the designer), insofar as architecture is an art. The structure that Norberg-Schulz has fashioned is surely one of the most impressive intellectual edifices that any architect has ever produced. The materials that are organically worked into it include Gestalt psychology, the mechanics of perception, information theory, modern analytic philosophy, and in particular, linguistic analysis, and the general theory of signs and symbols

The concept of dwelling : on the way to figurative architecture by Christian Norberg-Schulz( Book )

16 editions published between 1984 and 1993 in English and held by 392 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a book on human dwelling. The word "dwelling" here means something more than having a roof over our head and a certain numer of square meters at our disposal. First, it means to meet others for exchange of products, ideas and feelings, that is, to experience life as a multitude of possibilities. Second, it means to come to an agreement with others, that is, to accept a set of common values. Finally, it means to be oneself, in the sense of having a small chosen world of our own. We may call these modes collective, public and private dwelling. The word dwelling, however, also comprises the place man has created to set the modes into his work. The settlement, with its urban spaces, has always been the stage where collective dwelling was enacted. The institution or public building has been the embodiment of public dwelling. And the house has been the private retreat where the individual could prosper. Together settlement, urban space, institution and house constitute a total environment. This environment, however, is always related to what is given, that is, to a landscape with general as well as particualr qualities. To dwell, therefore, also means to become friends with a natural place. We may also say that dwelling consists in orientations and identification. Orientation and identification are satisfied by organized pace and built form, which constitute the concrete place. Our introduction of the concept of place, in contrast to the current emphasis on abstract space, offers a point of departure for a return to figurative architecture. Thus we leave the "non figurative" approach of functionalism behind, and open up for an architecture which may satisfy the need for dwelling, in the existential sense of the word
Nightlands : Nordic building by Christian Norberg-Schulz( Book )

12 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and held by 365 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Architecture is a manifestation of the environment in which it is placed, observes distinguished architect and theoretician Christian Norberg-Schulz. A simple enough observation, but one that becomes subtle and nuanced in this landmark book that attempts to define, for the first time, what Nordic building really is." "Exploring the ways built experience "takes place," Norberg-Schulz charts the distinctive character of land and climate that distinguishes the architectural traditions of Denmark, Sweden, Finland, and Norway from each other and from those to the south. While each of these countries might be said to share regional traits, Norberg-Schulz identifies differences (the cultivated and closely detailed landscape and architecture of Denmark, the dramatic, structured forms of Norway) that allow him to account for the way individual Nordic architectures evolved."--Jacket

Architecture : presence, language, and place by Christian Norberg-Schulz( Book )

14 editions published between 1997 and 2000 in English and held by 297 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume developed out of a wish to provide architecture with an existential foundation. Therefore, the being of man in the world, and in particular, the spatial aspects of his presence, are taken as points of departure. The first three chapters deal with the being of man in the world under the titles of use, comprehension, and implemenation. The following three chapters explore the dimensions of this language under the titles of typology, morphology, and topology. The last three chapters serve to illustrate the application of the language of forms in vernacular, stylistic, and modern architecture."--BOOK JACKET
