The architecture of the city by Aldo Rossi( Book )

121 editions published between 1966 and 2018 in 7 languages and held by 1,069 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Dalla sua prima edizione nel 1966, L'architettura della città è stato il testo che più ha influenzato la riflessione urbanistica, restituendo centralità alla grande questione rimossa della forma. Ogni città è forma, e qualsiasi tentativo di comprenderla unicamente attraverso le sue funzioni è destinato a fallire. Nella forma, la tradizione mostra la sua capacità di mutare e durare nel tempo, e l'idea che una comunità ha di sé entra in risonanza con i bisogni pratici a cui deve far fronte. L'architettura diventa così un atto collettivo, in cui si uniscono due urgenze umane come l'intenzionalità estetica e la necessità di costruire un ambiente propizio alla vita. Non si tratta di un incontro teorico, ma di un'alchimia che genera spazi concreti: strade da percorrere, edifici da abitare, monumenti in cui depositare identità. Questa città, così animata e così umana, emerge dal tempo, cresce su se stessa, acquista coscienza e memoria allestendo il palcoscenico in cui istanze opposte si scontrano e sintetizzano: particolare e universale, individuale e collettivo, progettazione razionale e locus. Solo abbracciando la complessità di questo campo di forze eterogenee è possibile un approccio architettonico che sia nel contempo estetico e politico. Attraverso una rassegna di città ideali e di luoghi reali - da Berlino a Stoccolma, dal foro di Roma all'antico teatro di Arles divenuto un quartiere abitato -, Aldo Rossi costruisce un testo spartiacque della letteratura urbanistica. L'architettura della città è un saggio scritto con rigore rinascimentale e insieme la dichiarazione di poetica di uno dei più importanti architetti e intellettuali italiani; un libro che si dischiude a interpretazioni sempre fertili e nuove perché, come una sinfonia o un grande romanzo contemporaneo, ha la profondità e il fascino di un'opera aperta." --
Aldo Rossi, the sketchbooks 1990-1997 by Aldo Rossi( Book )

7 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 263 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Aldo Rossi, one of the most innovative minds of modern architecture, was born in Milan in 1931. He lived and worked in Milan and New York, building in Germany, Holland, France, the USA and Japan, and teaching at a number of universities including Yale and Harvard. He died in 1997 at the age of sixty-six." "Rossi is important not only for his buildings but perhaps even more for his ideas. His free use of historical styles, especially classical, places him broadly as a Postmodernist. But he was much more than that. Every project was carefully conceived in relation to a particular purpose and a particular context, priorities that come through most clearly in these irresistable colour drawings, reproduced here for the first time."--Jacket
Aldo Rossi : drawings and paintings by Morris Adjmi( Book )

3 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 258 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Aldo Rossi is admired as much for his artistic ability as for his architectural design skill. His drawings, paintings, and renderings have been exhibited in museums and galleries from New York to Moscow, and formed the basis of a 1991 retrospective at the Pompidou Center in Paris. This elegant book collects over 200 color reproductions and 200 black and white reproductions of his drawings and paintings together in a companion volume to Aldo Rossi: Architecture "1981-1991". An introduction by the editors explores the themes common to Rossi's architectural and drawn oeuvre, and an essay by critic and art historian Carter Ratcliff situates Rossi's graphic work in the context of contemporary art. Together the text and plates offer an insight into the creative mind of one of the most important architects in practice today." -- Publisher description
La arquitectura de la ciudad by Aldo Rossi( Book )

56 editions published between 1966 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 232 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Con cerca de cincuenta años de historia, este libro forma parte del imaginario de varias generaciones de arquitectos y sigue siendo una obra fundamental para comprender los procesos de conformación de la ciudad entendida como arquitectura. Desde que en 1966 se publicara La arquitectura de la ciudad por primera vez en italiano, la crítica al funcionalismo ingenuo, los conceptos de locus, monumento y tipo, o la recuperación del valor de la memoria colectiva en la arquitectura han permanecido para siempre en el debate teórico arquitectónico. En este texto, Aldo Rossi reclamó el valor autónomo de la arquitectura y reivindicó, en el marco de lo que él denominaba la "ciencia urbana", la obra singular y el monumento como los elementos fundamentales de la historia de la ciudad y de la memoria colectiva. Pero más allá de estas aportaciones y en la línea de otros autores, desde el iluminismo hasta la actualidad, con este ensayo Rossi abordó directamente los principios y fundamentos de la teoría de la arquitectura y propuso el establecimiento de un cuerpo científico autónomo que fundara la actividad de la arquitectura y condujera a la acumulación de las experiencias, al estudio ordenado de los problemas y a una enseñanza sistemática. En definitiva, uno de los textos programáticos más influyentes de la segunda mitad del siglo XX en arquitectura

Sottsass by Ettore Sottsass( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 191 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Take a glimpse inside the archive of the founder of the Memphis Group and designer of the Olivetti Valentine typewriter in Ettore Sottsass, a lavishly illustrated monograph chronicling the life and works of the unparalleled Italian designer and architect. A gorgeous object in itself, the unique design of the book allows it to either be read cover-to-cover as a narrative history, or by discipline, picking up the relative thread under each period, with multi-colored tabs to distinguish each sub-chapter. Packed with 800 beautiful images taken from the extensive Sottsass archives - many of which have never been published before - and including drawings and sketches from the designer's countless sketchbooks, the book also includes four short essays from experts in their fields, including Deyan Sudjic, director of London's Design Museum

Carlos Jiménez by Carlos Jiménez( Book )

11 editions published between 1991 and 1993 in Spanish and English and held by 131 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Crowley house, sited on a flat hilltop, enjoys sweeping vistas of Marfa's compelling landscape: a unique combination of rolling grass dunes and chiseled mountain ranges. The sheer exposure and vulnerability of the site, inspired an architecture of boundaries and limits, that nonetheless takes full advantage of unobstructed views across the vast Chihuahuan desert. The spare setting is magnified by the extraordinary quality of light available almost anytime of the year and which is particular to this region of southwest Texas. The ever-surprising tonality of this keen light transforms ordinary objects and features into magical interludes throughout the day. The house is a one-story structure, whose single-room depth threads interior and exterior to form an interrelated whole. The elongated layout defines two distinct courtyards while establishing a protected domain, a shaded sanctuary in the high desert climate. The experience of moving from one space to another becomes a measured interchange between intimacy and expansiveness, between proximity and distance
