Frank Gehry, architect by Frank O Gehry( Book )

17 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 990 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Since the 1997 completion of what many consider his greatest achievement - the stunning Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, Spain - Frank O. Gehry has soared to the forefront of contemporary American architecture. Long recognized by his peers for his innovative designs, Gehry now enjoys a new level of prominence in the popular imagination. This book, the catalogue of the first large-scale retrospective of Gehry's work in 15 years, examines the architect's unique vision and provides the historical perspective with which to interpret the audacious accomplishments." "Essays by noted museum curators and architectural historians explore his iconoclastic spirit and trace his melding of unconventional materials and forms. Photographs, drawings, plans, and scale models communicate the breadth and complexity of Gehry's work and show how, in his view of architecture as sculptural space, Gehry has opened up a world of new possibilities for architecture."--Jacket

Architecture in uniform : designing and building for the Second World War by Jean-Louis Cohen( Book )

18 editions published in 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 356 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This fascinating book offers a new perspective on the architectural history of the Second World War, which in previous accounts has most often been viewed as a hiatus between peaceful periods of production. Jean-Louis Cohen contends instead that during the years between the bombings of Guernica in 1937 and of Hiroshima in 1945, specific advances were fundamental to the process of modernization and led to the definitive supremacy of modernism in architecture. Centering the discussion on ten main themes, the author investigates various aspects of architecture's mobilization in the war years, as well as the trajectories of individual architects. He analyzes architectural developments worldwide and takes into account each of the major participants in the war, including the United States, Japan, Great Britain, France, Italy, the Netherlands, Germany, and the Soviet Union. The book not only focuses on plans, buildings, and technological inventions but also examines the many types of visual representation used for war purposes, enhanced by a rich array of more than 300 illustrations. -- Book Description

Le Corbusier's secret laboratory : from painting to architecture by Jean-Louis Cohen( Book )

14 editions published in 2013 in English and German and held by 298 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Charles-Édouard Jeanneret, bekannt als Le Corbusier (1887-1965), beeinflusste die Gestaltung, Funktion und Bauweise von Gebäuden und Wohnhäusern ebenso wie die Kunst und das Design des 20. Jahrhunderts. Eine ausführliche, präzise Betrachtung seiner Rolle als Künstler steht jedoch aus. Über fünf Jahrzehnte pendelte Le Corbusier zwischen widersprüchlichen Polen: der Hingabe an mechanische Objekte einerseits und der Suche nach einer poetischen Form andererseits. Die wechselseitige Inspiration durch ästhetisch kontra funktional bestimmte Schaffensweisen vollzog sich im »secret laboratory«, dem Atelier des Künstlers. Der Band fasst erstmalig alle Facetten seines Œuvre zusammen und findet neue Ansätze, um Gemälde, Zeichnungen, Skulpturen, Tapisserien, Möbel, Bauskizzen und -pläne sowie Bücher und Fotografien zu verstehen. Fünf Kapitel spannen einen Bogen von den puristischen Gemälden und frühen Villen über die Neudeutung etablierter Werte durch Le Corbusier bis zu seinen Spätwerken."--Publisher's website

Casablanca : colonial myths and architectural ventures by Jean-Louis Cohen( Book )

12 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and Swedish and held by 256 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Casablanca is a city of international renown, not least because of its urban structures and features. Celebrated by colonial writers, filmed by Hollywood, magnet for Europeans and Moroccans, Casablanca is above all an exceptional collection of urban spaces, houses, and gardens. While it is true that Casablanca developed as a port city well before the introduction of the French in 1907, it unquestionably ranks among the most significant urban creations of the twentieth century, attracting remarkable teams of architects and planners. Their commissions came from clients who were interested in innovation and modernization, thereby fostering the emergence of Casablanca as a laboratory for legislative, technological, and visual experimentation. Having studied the city for ten years, Jean-Louis Cohen and Monique Eleb trace, from the late nineteenth century to the early 1960s, the rebirth of a once-forgotten port and its metamorphosis into a teeming metropolis that is an amalgam of Mediterranean culture from Tunisia, Algeria, Spain, and Italy. The extensive presentation of the significant buildings of this hybrid city -- where, alongside the French, Muslim and Jewish Moroccan patrons commissioned provocative buildings -- is drawn from French and Moroccan archives, including hundreds of previously unpublished photographs. Cohen and Eleb focus as much on Casablanca's diverse social fabric as its urban spaces, chronicling the clients, inhabitants, and inventive architects who comprise the human component of an essential yet overlooked episode of modernism

France played a central role in the emergence and development of modernism across a variety of disciplines, with its architects in particular creating some of the most iconic buildings of the twentieth century. Yet few histories have attempted to grapple with the continuities and breaks in France's architecture since 1900, particularly against the broader international background. Jean-Louis Cohen's 'France' is the first book to present a complete narrative of the unfolding of architectural modernity in France, dealing both with the buildings and the political and critical frameworks surrounding them
