Theoretical anxiety and design strategies in the work of eight contemporary architects by José Rafael Moneo( Book )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 382 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Rafael Moneo is known to be a courageous architect. His major works include the headquarters of Bankinter in Madrid, the National Museum of Roman Art in Mérida, the Davis Art Museum at Wellesley College, the Museums of Modern Art and Architecture in Stockholm, and the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston. Now Moneo will be known as a daring critic as well. In this book, he looks at eight of his contemporaries, all architects of international stature, and discusses the theoretical positions, technical innovations, and design contributions of each. Moneo's discussion of these eight architects - James Stirling, Robert Venturi with Denise Scott Brown, Aldo Rossi, Peter Eisenman, Álvaro Siza, Frank Gehry, Rem Koolhaas, and the partnership of Jacques Herzog and Pierre de Meuron - has the colloquial, engaging tone of a series of lectures on modern architecture by a master architect; the reader hears not the dispassionate theorizing of an academic, but Moneo's own deeply held convictions as he considers the work of his contemporaries. More than 600 illustrations accompany the text. Discussing each of the architects in turn, Moneo first gives an introductory profile, emphasizing intentions, theoretical concerns, and construction procedures. He then turns to the work, offering detailed critical analyses of the works he considers to be crucial for an informed understanding of this architect's work. The many images he uses to illustrate his points resemble the rapid-fire flash of slides in a lecture, but Moneo's perspective is unique among lecturers. These profiles are not what Moneo calls the 'tacit treatises' that can be found on the shelves of a university library, but lively encounters of architectural equals"--Back cover
Large parks by James Corner( Book )

8 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 306 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Large Parks examines an increasingly hard-to-define landscape type: the urban park. By viewing such landscapes through the lens of size, the essays contained here cut across conventional binary categories of classification - historic or contemporary, built or unbuilt, competition-sponsored or commissioned - and enable us to analyze landscapes not usually considered collectively. From a discussion of historic parks such as New York's Central Park and Paris's Bois de Boulogne, to intriguing new projects such as the Orange County Great Park in California, Large Parks highlights the intricacies that go into designing these massive and culturally significant works. By analyzing design, concept, construction, and technique, Large Parks gives designers concrete insight into the complicated task of designing a large park that is structured enough to give form, identity, and meaning to the site, but pliant enough to adapt to changing ecologies, demands, and uses. Editors Julia Czerniak and George Hargreaves present writings by leading academics and practitioners, along with original graphics and photographs, foregrounding a set of preoccupations in landscape discourse that relate in complex ways, such as ecology, public space, process, place, site, and the city."--Jacket

Barcelona : the urban evolution of a compact city by Joan Busquets( Book )

16 editions published between 2005 and 2014 in English and Spanish and held by 219 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Barcelona can be regarded as a prototype of a European Mediterranean city with a long urban tradition. As such, it has undergone a specific process of historic formation: density and compactness of urban form, evolution by extension rather than by reform, etc. A history of urban planning necessarily includes a summary of the territorial and urban experience, and pays particular attention to the physical dimensions of the city that condition its cultural and economic development. This book centers on the construction of Barcelona, taking as its basis the most important planning operations and city projects, and drawing on various sources for the different phases. Its urban development was very varied, even without taking into account the interventions of royalty or aristocrats that produced large avenues and parks. The local scale of many of the projects contrasts with the cosmopolitan aspirations that have made some of these interventions so innovative; these might include some of the major projects carried out for special events, such as the events in 1888 (World Exhibition), 1929 (Electrical Industries Exhibition) and 1992 (Olympic Games). Now, in the 21st century, new prospects are opening up thanks to the recent European institutional framework, particularly changes in the economic system to a post-industrial phase, during which the various means of communication are coming to the fore. It is difficult to gauge the spatial repercussions, but the urban planning history of Barcelona shows how it has already overcome major contradictions in recent centuries

Platform : a year of research through studio work, theses, lectures, exhibitions and events( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Harvard University Graduate School of Design has always recognized the indispensable importance and values of architecture, landscape architecture, urban planning, and urban design, yet has transcended their individual aspirations through intellectual cross-fertilization and collaboration. The material presented in this publication forms a small part of the incredible range and diversity of proposals and visions that the GSD students and faculty have produced during the past academic year. This work is indicative of the School s commitment, as a global leader in the field, to exploring and articulating transformative ideas through the power of design. It is as important for us to share and communicate the outcome of our research and design investigations as it is to show the fertile circumstances and conditions for the making of these projects
