Mary Miss : projects, 1966-1987 by Mary Miss( Book )

3 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 142 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As sculptor, draughtsman, photographer and environmental artist, Mary Miss straddles the fields of architecture, landscape architecture, and installation art. Her work moves from the urban bustle of New York, to the vast plains of the American Midwest, to the remote forests of Finland. Designed in association with the artist, this monograph, a comprehensive overview of Miss's work, features colour photographs and images of her projects, accompanied by copious drawings by the artist. Architectural historian Daniel Abramson addresses each of her projects in detail. An introduction by art critic Eleanor Heartney situates Miss in the context of contemporary movements in art, and architecture critic Joseph Giovannini places her work within contemporary design practice."--Provided by publisher

Corporate fields : new office environments by the AA DRL by Andrew E Benjamin( Book )

7 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 138 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Corporate fields imagines and gives form to the future of office life, bringing together more than 2000 diagrams, models, renderings and other images from 26 architectural projects completed during the first three years of the ground-breaking AA DRL programme." "The projects are based on extensive field research undertaken in some of London's most creative corporate environments, and they have been developed from a close analysis of the remarkable ways in which today's leading companies challenge both traditional corporate practice and conventional office planning assumptions. The proposals resulting from this design research include master plans and buildings as well as interiors and furnishings." "Corporate Fields is the first in a series of books documenting the work of the AA DRL, whose innovative (and increasingly imitated) team-based design pedagogy proposes a model for peer-to-peer teaching and learning that is uniquely tailored to the increasingly global design challenges, tools and technologies of the twenty-first century."--BOOK JACKET

Sub-urbanism and the art of memory by Sébastien Marot( Book )

3 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 131 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Suburb: the setting for most people's daily lives; the most common site for design interventions." "Sub-urbanism: a subversion of urbanism, a new approach to shaping the territories in which we live." "This book is a sub-urbanist manifesto. Its author, Sebastien Marot, is editor of Le Visiteur, the Paris journal of 'city, territory, landscape and architecture'." "Challenging the dominant role of the programme in regulating the design project, Marot argues that instead attention should be redirected towards the site - the site read in depth, with an active regard for memory." "Exploring this analysis, he considers in turn Frances Yates's book on the art of memory as practised by ancient civilizations, Sigmund Freud's analogy between the past of a city and the workings of memory, Robert Smith's account of a tour of his suburban birthplace, and Georges Descombe's design for a small park in the Geneva suburb where he spent his childhood. His conclusion brings these different strands together and highlights, in memory, a precept that is essential to the renewal of current architecture."--BOOK JACKET
