"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 161 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 )

8 editions published in 1996 in English and Dutch and held by 147 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this book you will find another manifestation of this sub-culture. It takes the form of a report on a competition entitled 'The school of architecture as a subject of design', in which architectural students were invited to design a school of architecture for the future. The organizer, the Netherlands Architecture Institute, received over 400 entries from all over the world, from China to Mexico, from Sweden to Australia. In addition to the space devoted to the winning designs, the book also provides a qualitative and quantitative overview of the entries. In analysing the variety of answers to the competition brief it offers a fascinating insight into the ambitions and dreams of a future generation of architects

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

5 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 9 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
