Mies in Berlin by Terence Riley( Book )

23 editions published in 2001 in English and German and held by 741 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This in-depth look at Mies van der Rohes early career, published to accompany an exhibition opening at New Yorks Museum of Modern Art in June 2001 and traveling to Berlin and other European venues, is the first to examine the architects work in Europe in terms of specific historical and cultural contextrather than the more abstract and formal arguments of the International Style. While earlier studies have described a fundamental break between Miess neo-classical work prior to 1919 and the more avant-garde work of the 1920s, recent research demonstrates that the transformation was much more gradual. Here 11 scholars and architectural historians explore particular aspects of Miess work, together shedding new light on the continual interplay of tradition and innovation, nature and abstraction, in the evolution of his design theories and methods. With a wealth of photographs and drawings, many not previously published, this book conveys for the first time the dynamic intellectual ferment of this formative period in the life of one of architectures towering figures

Modernity and durability : perspectives for the culture of design by Vittorio Magnago Lampugnani( Book )

22 editions published between 1995 and 2018 in German and English and held by 233 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The orthodox concept of the Modern, as it was passed down from the 1920s to the post-war era, has been in a state of crisis for quite some time. This is particularly visible in the fields of urban planning, architecture, and design. Theorists and practitioners have either fiercely defended it as a crowning historical achievement to be upheld and further cultivated, or dismissively rejected it as a short-lived and outdated episode that needs to be replaced with something different and new. Architectural theorist and practitioner Vittorio Magnago Lampugnani suggests a third option: that we reformulate our understanding of the Modern, continuing to pursue its original social and humanist ambitions while radically re-examining its ideological, political, social, technical, functional, economic, ecological, and aesthetic assumptions. Our world, which continues to be shaken by dreadful wars, is also being sapped and polluted by our thoughtlessness and our greed. The capitalist compulsion to turn everything into a commodity has led to needless production and consumption, and we are both victims and accomplices of this predicament. The consumerist frenzy has brought completely new forms of exploitation and exacerbated the unjust inequalities between different parts of our world. Starting from these premises, the author puts forward a new design approach that strives for -- and is defined by -- durability. This is an approach that rejects the frivolous waste of resources and superficial proliferation of images that have become commonplace today. It offers an alternative to the contemporary fixation on spectacles, both hollow and dangerous, and instead calls for measured restraint and substantial simplicity

Anthologie zum Städtebau( Book )

8 editions published in 2014 in German and held by 198 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Die Quellentexte aus dem späten 19. Jahrhundert bis zum Zweiten Weltkrieg erhellen die vielfältigen Aspekte des komplexen Grossstadtphänomens und dokumentieren die Entstehung der modernen Metropole in Europa und Übersee. Im Zusammenspiel mit der Kommentierung machen sie Breite und Kapillarität eines städtebaulichen Diskurses erfahrbar, der die nationalen Grenzen durchschreitet und ansatzweise globale Dimensionen annimmt, wie er auch selber seinen Rahmen sprengt und in regionalen, territorialen Kategorien argumentiert. Die allmähliche Institutionalisierung der städtebaulichen Disziplin trägt nicht nur zu ihrer Formalisierung und zur Herausbildung eines professionellen Instrumentariums bei, sondern beansprucht zudem ihren Diskurs--wie ihre Mittel--zur politischen, sozialtechnischen und wirtschaftlichen Einflussnahme. Die nun vollständig vorliegende Anthologie (erschienen seit 2005) ist eine thematisch und chronologisch gegliederte Textsammlung, die ein breites Spektrum an fachlichen Fragestellungen auffächert und die Theoriegeschichte der Disziplin Städtebau differenziert nachzeichnet. Die Quellentexte erscheinen philologisch sorgfältig ediert, in Originalsprache nach Erstausgabe, versehen mit Kommentaren zur Editionsgeschichte
Urban visions : experiencing and envisioning the city by Steven Spier( Book )

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 193 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The modern city that was initiated by the great, violent forces unleashed by the industrialisation of Europe in the late eighteenth century is the city we still inhabit today: not so much in its physical form, but in the condition and sometimes affliction of being urban. The question of what kind of city we are trying to have is an urgent one as the world continues its dramatic urbanisation. Urban Visions presumes that an understanding of our urban experience is a prerequisite for envisioning what the city could be. The contemporary city is a place of contested ownership and authorship. This book accepts that visions, which are currently more articulate in disciplines and media other than architecture and planning, need not always be utopian, heroic or grand. But our experience of the city does occur in something material that is designed - be it by architects, planners, or more often and anonymously larger societal or cultural forces. It is an intricate construction in which physical, cultural, commerical, historical, ideological and personal presences can coincide. The city must embrace, and its representations must reflect, the wealth or possible experiences of it. In assembling work by distinguished authors from different disciplines and countries, Urban Visions offers a patient examination of what urban experience is and of the city's necessity, with explicit and implicit propositions about what it could be. -- From cover flap

Die Stadt von der Neuzeit bis zum 19. Jahrhundert urbane Entwürfe in Europa und Nordamerika by Vittorio Magnago Lampugnani( Book )

9 editions published in 2017 in German and held by 147 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Die Aufgabe ist sehr einfach und sehr schwer: Städte zu bauen für Menschen, die darin wohnen. Vittorio Magnago Lampugnani überblickt die verwickelte Geschichte der abendländischen Stadt und erzählt sie anhand ihrer bedeutsamsten Episoden. Nach seiner überaus erfolgreichen Geschichte der Stadt im 20. Jahrhundert hat Vittorio Magnago Lampugnani nun gewissermaßen den Vorläufer zu seinem Opus Magnum verfasst. Aus der Entwicklung von der Neuzeit zum 19. Jahrhundert greift er die wohl glorreichsten, gewiss aber entscheidenden Momente heraus und entwirft ein funkelndes Kaleidoskop abendländischer Stadtbaukunst: Von den mittelalterlichen Stadtstaaten über die urbanistischen Erfindungen der Renaissance und die perspektivischen Strategien des Barock bis zu den gewaltigen Modernisierungen, durch die sich das Bürgertum die traditionelle Stadt aneignete. Jedes Kapitel ist der architektonischen Form einer europäischen Stadt und ihren besonderen Bedingungen in einer spezifischen Epoche gewidmet: Florenz, Rom, Lissabon, London, Paris, Berlin, Wien und Barcelona; dazu kommen die nordamerikanischen Kolonialsiedlungen, Pionierstädte und Metropolen. Mehr als 350 überwiegend großformatige und farbige Abbildungen Stadtpläne, Entwürfe, Zeichnungen, Architekturfotografien, Luftaufnahmen bereiten ein enormes visuelles Vergnügen und eröffnen einen neuen Blick auf die Städte Europas und Nordamerikas.--Verlagstext
