Le Corbusier by Kenneth Frampton( Book )

15 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 633 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Le Corbusier is probably the most famous architect of the 20th century. The richness and variety of his work and his passionately expressed philosophy of architecture have had a gigantic impact on the urban fabric and the way we live. Weaving through his long and prolific life are certain recurrent themes - his perennial drive towards new types of dwelling, from the early white villas to the Unite d'Habitation at Marseilles; his evolving concepts of urban form, including the Plan Vision of 1925 with its cruciform towers imposed on the city of Paris and his work at Chandigarh in India; and his belief in a new technocratic order. The distinguished critic and historian Kenneth Frampton re-examines all these facets of his artistic and philosophical world-view in light of recent thinking, and presents us with a Le Corbusier for the 21st century."--Jacket
World architecture 1900-2000 : a critical mosaic( Book )

107 editions published between 1999 and 2002 in English and Undetermined and held by 618 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This series of 10 volumes record[s] the century's most significant architectural achievements and cover[s] all parts of the world. Altogether 1000 buildings and urban complexes have been selected by noted architectural writers and critics. Within each volume, one hundred significant examples represent the political, economical, cultural and demographic evolution of the particular region over the century. THe evident complexity of the enterprise cannot entirely exclude a few arbitrary choices. Not only does the selection procedure reflect individual choices, but also the division of the globe into transnational regions of vastly differing size and character evokes a specific appearance of world architecture. Thus this architectural collection is to be understood as a critical mosaic representing as a whole the entire evolution of world architecture from 1900-2000"--Bookjackets

With over 300 images, this book brings to light the work of an exciting designer crossing the boundaries between architecture, engineering, and fine arts. James Carpenter Design Associates, founded in 1978, has worked collaboratively with preeminent architects and engineers in the United States and abroad--including Norman Foster, Richard Meier, SOM, and Michael Van Valkenburgh--creating the artistic complement to many significant buildings.
