The seduction of place : the city in the twenty-first century by Joseph Rykwert( Book )

32 editions published between 2000 and 2002 in English and held by 909 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"To understand why people love or hate their cities and why cities succeed or fail their inhabitants, Joseph Rykwert examines a broad spectrum of urban centers. Among them are Mexico City, the world's largest metropolis, sprawled around its old center; Berlin, newly reunited and furiously rebuilding; New Delhi and Islamabad, new capitals that exist alongside older towns; grandly planned cities like Chandigarh, Canberra, and Brasilia; and more modest new towns like Columbia, Maryland, and Celebration, Florida, built in an attempt to correct the problems endemic to big cities." "Rykwert looks at image, style, and ornament; at public space and buildings; at infrastructure and street layout; at the visual qualities of contrast, strife, and energy that contribute to a city's appeal. Discussing both successes and failures, he suggests ways in which we can retain - or return to - the sense of place and individuation that determines the nourishing character and soul of the urban landscape."--Jacket

Louis Kahn by Joseph Rykwert( Book )

12 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 559 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The publication of this book coincides with the centenary of the birth of American architect Louis Kahn (1901-1974), though its immediate occasion is the new collection of photographs that illustrate the text and provide an opportunity to reconsider Kahn's achievement and his way of working. Architectural historian Joseph Rykwert has written a sensitive appreciation of Kahn's career and oeuvre, and photographer Roberto Schezen traveled the world to photograph fifteen of Kahn's major projects especially for this volume. Supplementing the photographs are dozens of Kahn's sketches and plans for many of his built and unbuilt designs."--Jacket

Visionary clients for new architecture by Peter Noever( Book )

12 editions published in 2000 in English and Dutch and held by 217 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Instead of architects talking about their designs, this volume puts clients in the spotlight who are responsible for the renewal of architectural projects: Thomas Krens, director of the Guggenheim Foundation who contracted Frank O Gehry for the new Guggenheim museum in Bilbao and Rolf Fehlbaum, director of the Vitra company, including a Design museum. There generally is a tricky balance of power between the architect en the client. Considering that standardized construction methods dominate the world, these examples of succesful collaboration provide an alternative to the usual way of commissioning a building. A whole chapter is dedicated to new museum buildings, now a days represented like a work of art itself

The Grotta House by Richard Meier by Richard Meier( Book )

3 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 176 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The best architects are often defined by a singular residential commission - for example, Fallingwater by Frank Lloyd Wright or the Farnsworth House by Mies van der Rohe. In Richard Meier's case, the Grotta House is the culmination of the styles and techniques that can be found in the best of his work. Designed and constructed in the second half of the 1980s, the house also exhibits the Grottas exceptional collection of crafts and furniture." "This book, which includes a very candid interview with the Grottas as well as detailed photography and text commenting on every facet of the residence, is essential reading for the modern architect or anyone who aspires to commission a house."--Jacket
