Frank O. Gehry : the complete works by Francesco Dal Co( Book )

24 editions published between 1998 and 2005 in English and held by 1,041 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"American architect Frank O. Gehry is one of the great architects of the twentieth century. His Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, Spain, completed in 1997, has been heralded as the most important building of its time. Yet his exceptional career has never been comprehensively presented. This first major monograph on Gehry's work includes more than 250 buildings and projects designed throughout his forty-year career, each fully documented with photographs, presentation drawings, and Gehry's own sketches." "The architect's early work - the Davis Studio and Residence in Malibu, the multistage renovation of the Hollywood Bowl, the first remodeling of his own house in Santa Monica - explores various strains of modern architecture in an attempt to establish a personal voice." "Most recently, Gehry's work has experimented with complex forms and sculptural geometries and includes a group of significant cultural projects, including the Vitra Design Museum in Germany, the American Center in Paris, and the Frederick R. Weisman Museum at the University of Minnesota."--Jacket

Volume 2 traces concepts of urbanism and building theories after World War II through the 1970s, following the work of architects such as Mies van der Rohe and Alvar Aalto as well as the younger generation of practitioners of international reputation and influence.

Centre Pompidou : Renzo Piano, Richard Rogers, and the making of a modern monument by Francesco Dal Co( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 124 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Centre Georges Pompidou, also called Beaubourg, is today considered an icon of contemporary Paris, the quintessence of a modern building, and a model for what a museum can be. In 1971, Renzo Piano and Richard Rogers, together with the engineering firm Ove Arup & Partners, won an international architecture competition with their innovative and irreverent design. Completed in 1977, the building was at first received skeptically by critics, yet it was quickly embraced by the public as a beloved monument of the modern city of Paris. This lively intellectual biography of the building explores its history and the reasons for its success, from its genesis as a politically calculated response to Paris's turbulent 1968 student protests to the role played by architects in its construction, as well as the historical influences and the engineering solutions that inform its design. A key reason for the Centre Pompidou's success indeed lies in its ability to channel architectural memory, connecting it powerfully to Paris's historic urban fabric. This essential text on one of the twentieth century's most significant buildings is accompanied by a portfolio of rare drawings and photographs

An authoritative, comprehensive monograph on an underpublished architectural genius. This is the most comprehensive book published in English on the complete work of Paulo Mendes da Rocha, winner of the 2006 Pritzker Prize, which brought him to the attention of a worldwide audience. He is known for the innovative use of concrete and steel in provocative architectural designs that are both critically acclaimed and broadly popular. His striking and poetic use of simple materials is seen in both residential and commercial projects, from Casa Millan to his masterpiece Museo Brasileno de Escultura (1988). The book identifies accomplishments throughout his career, from his beginnings as part of the architectural avant-garde in Sao Paulo to current works that have helped define and transform urban landscapes. The latter part of the book includes an analysis of the designs, a complete summary of works, and an extensive bibliography
