Pier Luigi Nervi l'architecture comme défi by l'architecture et le paysage Centre international pour la ville( Book )

13 editions published in 2010 in French and Italian and held by 56 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Pier Luigi Nervi (1891-1979) a définitivement marqué de son empreinte puissante le vingtième siècle. Ingénieur amoureux de l'architecture gothique, il a exploré sans relâche toutes les possibilités expressives et structurelles du béton armé, un matériau qu'il [sic] lui est quasi contemporain. Ponts, cathédrales, églises, stades, bâtiments industriels, tours ou infrastructures de transport, la liste impressionnante de ses projets conçus seul ou avec certains des plus grands architectes de son temps couvre toutes les typologies et les besoins humains. Imprégné de l'idée que son art, celui de l'ingénieur bâtisseur, devait avant toute chose être humblement mis au service de la communauté des hommes, il a constamment recherché l'économie constructive sans renoncer à l'esthétique. Bien avant nos préoccupations actuelles, il avait à l'esprit les limites des ressources naturelles et la nécessité de les employer avec parcimonie. Il demeure encore aujourd'hui une source d'inspiration technique et architecturale majeure."--Page 4 of cover

The death and life of great American cities by Jane Jacobs( Book )

4 editions published between 2000 and 2009 in Italian and held by 40 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jane Jacobs critiques the comprehensive modernist approach to urban planning after 1945. By the 1950s, various American cities were pursuing ambitious urban renewal policies, influenced by Swiss-French architect Le Corbusier's concept of the "Radiant City." Jacobs sees this being utterly at odds with urban realities, and leading to the destruction of the city as a living community. This futurist vision insisted on the absolute segregation of the city's different activities into separate zones, linked (though also physically isolated) by super-highways set in wide parkland landscaping. The colossal physical destruction that was necessary to implement this vision tore apart the traditional multi-activity street and densely populated neighborhood that Jacobs avers is the bedrock of urban living
