The shingle style and the stick style : architectural theory and design from Richardson to the origins of Wright by Vincent Scully( Book )

50 editions published between 1955 and 1993 in English and held by 1,613 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book has been widely acclaimed as the definitive study of the complex inspirations and cultural influences that were fused in the Shingle Style of wooden suburban and resort buildings of the period 1872 to 1889. Vincent Scully presents the published designs and the written statements of the architects, as well as contemporary criticisms of the buildings to analyze the development of the Shingle Style from Richardson's early work to Wright's first house in Oak Park. An analysis of the Colonial Revival is central to the work, which is now enhanced by the addition of an extensive related chapter on the Stick Style of the mid-century. A new preface has been added, and the bibliography and footnotes have been updated."--Page 4 of cover

Maya Lin a strong clear vision by Freida Lee Mock( Visual )

9 editions published between 1994 and 2010 in English and held by 1,353 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This Academy Award winner reveals the contentious origins of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial and tells the inspiring story of its creator, a 21-year-old Yale architecture student. Beating out some of the most prestigious architecture films from around the world, Lin's plan was selected from over 1,000 different designs, a giant victory for such a young and unknown artist. But little did Maya Lin know that her battle was just beginning. In Washington to defend her design, Lin came up against a mighty opposition, challenging indignant veterans and a hostile Congress to ultimately prevail with her emotional 'Wall.' And what began as one of the country's most bitterly disputed public monuments became one of the world's inspirational and frequently visited memorials. In this riveting and dramatic portrait, renowned filmmaker Freida Lee Mock combines interviews and archival footage to chronicle Lin's story -- from its origins, dominated by her David vs. Goliath battle over the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, to a career designing other memorials, always with an innate talent, and resolute courage." -- Back of container

The new urbanism : toward an architecture of community by Peter Katz( Book )

10 editions published between 1993 and 1996 in English and held by 924 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

New Urbanism addresses many of the critical issues of our time: the decline of America's cities, the rebuilding of its crumbling infrastructure, housing affordability, crime and traffic congestion. Proponents suggest alternatives to the present sprawl and isolation they see as the consequence of decades of poorly planned suburban growth. The designs of New Urbanism integrate housing, shops, workplaces, parks and civic facilities into close-knit communities that are both charming and functional. Walkabiity is key, but cars aren't excluded. The book presents 24 case study projects that offer simple yet compelling solutions to many frequently encountered planning problems

Michael Graves, buildings and projects, 1990-1994 by Michael Graves( Book )

1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"Over the past three decades, Michael Graves's career has been one of the most remarkably creative and successful of any American architect practicing today. His extensive oeuvre includes such renowned projects as the Walt Disney World Dolphin Hotel and the Walt Disney World Swan Hotel in Florida, the San Juan Capistrano Library in California, and the precedent-setting Portland Building in Oregon, as well as designs for his highly popular lines of furniture, home furnishings, and artifacts. When introduced in the late 1970s, Graves's figurative architectural language marked a radical departure from the abstract modernist forms that had dominated postwar architecture. Today his signature aesthetic - elemental shapes, references to historical forms, and warm colors that often reflect Italian and classical influences - is recognized worldwide." "Presented in this monograph are seventy-one of Graves's built and unbuilt projects of the past five years, generously illustrated with photographs and plans, as well as Graves's evocative sketches and colored facade drawings. Featured projects in the United States include the Denver Central Library in Colorado; The Team Disney Building, Disney's corporate executive offices in Burbank, California; the Michael C. Carlos Museum at Emory University in Atlanta, with its extraordinary galleries for ancient art; and several private residences, including Graves's own Italianate villa in Princeton, New Jersey."--Jacket
