Schindler House by Kathryn Smith( Book )

7 editions published between 2000 and 2010 in English and held by 439 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In her text, author Kathryn Smith tells the story of the creation of the Schindler House and its critical reception throughout the twentieth century, and explains why it is one of the key works of modern architecture. Her essay is generously illustrated with archival photographs that document the construction of the house and portray those who lived in it, and with shots Schindler himself took during stays at Frank Lloyd Wright's Wisconsin residence, Taliesin, and on trips around the United States. Photographer Grant Mudford was specially commissioned to photograph the Schindler House for this publication; his sensitivity to Schindler's creative vision will enlighten readers each time they open this volume."--Jacket

Symphony : Frank Gehry's Walt Disney Concert Hall by Frank O Gehry( Book )

9 editions published between 2003 and 2009 in English and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the stainless steel curves of its striking exterior to the state-of-the-art acoustics of the hardwood-paneled main auditorium, Frank Gehry's Walt Disney Concert Hall, new home of the Los Angeles Philharmonic, will be one of the most acoustically sophisticated concert halls in the world. Opening in fall 2003, the hall is destined to be a new architectural landmark, generating as much excitement as Gehry's Guggenheim Museum Bilbao, which its design predates. This book, which includes an introduction by Gehry, traces the history of the hall from its inception through the architect selection process, construction, and completion of the building, which is recorded in acclaimed architectural photographer Grant Mudford's stunning images. Esa-Pekka Salonen, music director for the Los Angeles Philharmonic, recounts his first impressions of Gehry and the models for the new building in an essay that also defines what makes a great orchestra and a great concert hall. Sure to make headlines and attract visitors from around the world, the Walt Disney Concert Hall is one of the most important and innovative buildings of recent years. This book brings its story to all those interested in modern architecture
Louis I. Kahn : in the realm of architecture by David Bruce Brownlee( Book )

4 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This condensed edition of Louis I. Kahn: In the Realm of Architecture is a definitive and richly illustrated volume that presents the oeuvre of one of this century's most influential practitioners, teachers, and thinkers in architecture. Here is the detailed account of the architecture and philosophy of Louis Kahn, whose buildings have become the very signature of the modernist aesthetic and whose vision permanently changed the direction of American architecture. Kahn's career is documented here with meticulous attention to all aspects of his work-- from his own fascinating biography to the unique philosophy that underlies his buildings to the structures themselves. The stunning range of Kahn's architectural vision becomes fully apparent: his structures are at once solemn and resonant, elemental and musical. Extraordinary, exclusively commissioned color photographs of his masterworks-- the Yale Center for British Art, the National Assembly complex at Dhaka, Bangladesh, the Kimbell Art Museum, the Indian Institute of Management, the Salk Institute-- exquisitely demonstrate how Kahn's architecture wholly reinvents space and light. In all, more than two hundred illustrations, including numerous drawings and floor plans, accompany the painstakingly researched text. This volume-- published in association with the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles and with the exclusive participation of the Louis I. Kahn Collection-- contains six principal essays that critically address different dimensions and periods of Kahn's architecture. The essays and photography are accompanied by succinct notes and captions, as well as a complete list of buildings and projects and an index, making this book the preeminent scholarly and illustrative source for Kahn's architecture

Craig Ellwood : con el espíritu de la época by Alfonso Pérez-Méndez( Book )

2 editions published in 2002 in Spanish and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Aunque hoy en día su figura esté poco menos que olvidada, Craig Ellwood fue uno de los arquitectos clave en los años que siguieron a la II Guerra Mundial. Con poco más de treinta años, Ellwood ya había construido tres de las influyentes Case Study Houses y recibido el primer premio de la Bienal de Arquitectura de São Paulo por sus Apartamentos con Patio. Influido posteriormente por Mies, proyectó una larga serie de rigurosos edificios minimalistas, coronada por el Art Center College of Design en Pasadena, una obra maestra entre las de convicción miesiana. Contando con el apoyo de John Entenza, el editor de la influyente revista Arts & Architecture, Ellwood fue considerado por muchos, hasta finales de los años sesenta, como uno de los arquitectos más innovadores de su época. Este libro documenta todos los edificios de Ellwood de los que se conserva referencia en los archivos, lo que totaliza más de noventa construcciones. Entre sus 600 ilustraciones, se incluyen numerosas fotografías del extenso archivo fotográfico (incluyendo las realizadas por el propio Ellwood y Julius Shulman), dibujos originales y, también -en aquellos edificios que se conservan en buenas condiciones-fotografías recientes. Como la mayor parte de los dibujos originales se perdieron, se han redibujado unas 80 plantas expresamente para esta publicación, lo que convierte a este libro en el registro más fiel existente de la obra completa de Ellwood
