You have to pay for the public life : selected essays of Charles W. Moore by Charles Willard Moore( )

13 editions published between 2001 and 2004 in English and held by 1,314 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Architect Charles Moore (1925-1993) was not only celebrated for his designs: he was also an admired writer and teacher. Though he wrote clearly and passionately about places, he was perhaps unique among modern architects in avoiding the tone and stance of the personal manifesto. Through his buildings, books, and travels, Moore consistently sought insights into the questions that always underlie architecture and design: What does it mean to make a place, and how do we inhabit those places? How do we continue to build upon but respect the landscape? How do we reconcile democracy and private land ownership? What is original? What is taste? What is the relationship between past and present? How do we involve inhabitants in making places? Finally, what is public life? As the world becomes smaller, and the uniqueness of places and landscapes gives way to sameness, Moore's celebration of the vernacular and of the surprising is more relevant than ever." "The pieces in this book span the years 1952 to 1993 and engage a myriad of topics and movements, such as contextualism, community participation, collaboration, environmentally sensitive design, and historic preservation. The book reflects as well Moore's scholarship, humanism, urbanity, and great wit."--Jacket

The place of houses by Charles W Moore( Book )

31 editions published between 1974 and 2000 in English and held by 876 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The authors establish the basis for good building by examining houses in the small Massachusetts town of Edgartown in Santa Barbara, California, where a commitment was made to re-create an imaginary Spanish past and in Sea Ranch, on the northern California coast, where the authors attempt to create a community. These examples demonstrate how individual houses can express the care, energies, and dreams of the people who live in them, and can contribute to a larger sense of place
The poetics of gardens by Charles Willard Moore( Book )

32 editions published between 1933 and 2000 in English and held by 789 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"There is a universality about the creation of gardens across time and in diverse cultures that has inspired this entirely different garden book: a playful and affectionate typology of gardens; a pattern book in which a score of landscapes and gardens are drawn, described, and analyzed not just as a bouquet of pleasures but as sources, lodes to be mined for materials, shapes and relationships, and ideas for transforming our own backyards. The Poetics of Gardens is a celebration of places and the gardens they can become. Most of the 500 sketches, axonometric drawings, and photographs were created especially for this book. They explore the special qualities of places and the acts that can transform them into gardens. The authors discuss the qualities that create the promise of a garden the shapes of land and water, the established plants, the light and wind, the climate and show how these can be organized to give a place a special meaning. And they pay particular attention to the "rituals of habitation" by which we imaginatively take possession of places on the surface of the earth. The Poetics of Gardens examines great gardens made in other places, with other climates, at other times from ancient Rome to modem England, from Ball to Botany Bay, from the court of Ch'ien Lung to the magic kingdom of Walt Disney to explore their devices and record their images, scents, and sounds. The authors discuss the adaptation of the great garden traditions of the past to North American soil and call together the creators of these gardens to speculate about how their patterns and ideas can be appropriated, transformed, and composed into places that come alive for us"--Viewed on 5/31/2016

An architectural life : memoirs & memories of Charles W. Moore by Kevin P Keim( Book )

7 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 356 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The life of one of this century's preeminent American architects, whose ebullient personality and jazzy, eclectic style left an enduring legacy, is captured in these pages. Charles Moore (1925-1993) was a maverick genius, a gregarious pied piper who moved from one university to the next, establishing architectural firms at each new locale and overseeing projects all over the world - including, most famously, Sea Ranch in California and the fantastical Piazza d'Italia in New Orleans. Combining whimsy and rigor, high art and low, the ordinary and the ornate, his buildings and other projects are fresh, witty, surprising, unconventional - and always appealing human-scaled. Ever open to new influences - from Alvar Aalto and Frank Lloyd Wright to Paul Klee, feng-shui, Balinese villages, chaos theory, and the villas of Palladio - Moore himself exerted enormous influence on a whole generation of American architects. Most remarkable is the fact that Moore was as expressive with words as he was with building materials, making his posthumous writings a great addition not only to the literature on architecture but to twentieth-century American culture as well."--Book jacket

La casa : forma y diseño by Charles Willard Moore( Book )

20 editions published between 1976 and 2002 in Spanish and held by 75 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La casa: forma y diseño, publicado por primera vez en 1974, es un libro que intencionadamente se desmarca de las teorías globales de la arquitectura y de la herencia del Movimiento Moderno. Por el contrario, busca la complicidad del usuario (incluso del usuario-arquitecto) para recuperar determinados aspectos de la arquitectura tradicional. Si bien no es exactamente un muestrario de casas , al estilo de los que se publicaban en el siglo XIX para que la gente imitase una serie de modelos, este libro está planteado explícitamente como un manual práctico dirigido a un público no necesariamente profesional, y lo que intenta es promover una cierta sensibilidad recuperando una cualidad que durante mucho tiempo se dejó de lado en el momento de proyectar: el buen gusto. El libro está abundantemente ilustrado con fotografías en blanco y negro de las obras comentadas por los autores. Recuperar este libro hoy, cuando el post-modernismo en su vertiente más trivial y propagandística ha quedado atrás, permitirá al lector acceder de una manera menos condicionada a sus interesantes argumentos y valorar una serie de proyectos excepcionalmente integrados en la naturaleza y en el paisaje local
