Such places as memory : poems, 1953-1996 by John Hejduk( )

8 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 1,820 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The poems of John Hejduk are almost nonpoetic: still lives of memory, sites of possessed places. They give a physical existence to the words themselves and an autobiographical dimension to the architect." "This is the first comprehensive collection of Hejduk's poems to be published outside an architectural setting."--Jacket
Education of an architect by John Hejduk( Book )

22 editions published between 1988 and 1996 in English and held by 441 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Profiling twelve years of architectural education from 1972-1985, Education of an Architect celebrates the work of the talented students and the spirited faculty of the Irwin S. Chanin School of Architecture of the Cooper Union. It is divided into two parts covering chronologically the first four years of the design studio, and the thesis year which is organized by topic: Instruments, Orders and Projections, the City, the Institution, Outskirts, the House, Bridges, Topographies and Texts. This volume is a sequel to an earlier work of the same title, published in 1971 when the Cooper Union School of Architecture was invited by the Museum of Modern Art, New York, to exhibit student work produced between 1964 and 1971, the first such exhibition ever held at the Museum. That volume has since become a classic within architectural education, immensely influential upon architectural thought and practice in the last fifteen years. This new collection presents work influenced by art, literature, and medicine, and consequently details the scope of expanded thought that now permeates Architecture. -- Publisher description
Sanctuaries, the last works of John Hejduk : selections from the John Hedjuk archive at the Canadian Centre for Architecture, Montreal and the Menil collection, Houston by K. Michael Hays( Book )

10 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 260 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"John Hejduk (1929-2000) was one of the most original figures in American architecture and design. Best known for his visionary works and his influence upon graduates of The Cooper Union, New York, where he was dean for twenty-five years, Hejduk largely abstained from conventional practice, focusing instead on theoretical projects, usually in the form of drawings that were combined into poetic, highly personal narratives. Sanctuaries: The Last Works of John Hejduk highlights the architect's later work, in which he made successive attempts to shift his architecture away from the mathematical concerns of his earlier work - which had owed much to Mies van der Rohe and Mondrian - toward an allegorical, carnivalesque mode that he called architectural "masques." In these works, Hejduk presented his architecture in a more lyrical, painterly, and narrative way, and in the last of the works - including Enclosures, a suite of thirty-two drawings reproduced here in its entirety - returned architecture to an overtly spiritual function. The works display a stylistic range from basic geometric forms and elemental biomorphism (buildings that seem to have hair, beaks, eyes, and legs) to typological variations on theaters, periscopes, traps, chapels, and labyrinths. Employing allegorical images of angels, animals, martyrs, and machines, these works explore themes of falls from grace, itinerancy, passage and transformation, and above all, architecture as sanctuary - for art, for culture, for enduring rituals, for the human spirit itself."--BOOK JACKET

Divisible by 2 by John E. M Whiteman( Book )

5 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 162 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Divisible by 2 documents an architectural experiment by John Whiteman that articulates the preoccupations and concerns of the current generation of architectural and cultural theorists and practitioners. It investigates questions of embodiment, signification, visual perception and physical experience developed in a square pavilion that was erected in Austria as part of the Geburt einer Haupstadt (Birth of a Capital) exhibition. Integrating the text with images and drawings of the building, Divisible by 2 reveals the project's philosophical concerns and explains the design processes. John Hejduk's commentary establishes a dialogue with the project, acting as a critical counterpoint to text and images
Schools of architecture by Bart Goldhoorn( Book )

9 editions published in 1996 in English and Dutch and held by 151 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During the 1996 congress of the International Union of Architects in Barcelona, organizers were forced to hire a sports stadium to accommodate the over 10,000 people wanting to attend the programme of lectures by world-famous architects. For the most part, these eager participants were students of architecture. This is only one of several indications of the growing presence of an international architectural sub-culture dominated by students. Unhampered by professional responsibilities and the hassle of everyday building practice, students are able to experience architecture in its purest form, building upon centuries-old traditions, customs and codes that are carried on and developed in educational institutions all over the world
