The architecture of Red Vienna, 1919-1934 by Eve Blau( Book )

23 editions published between 1998 and 2018 in English and German and held by 485 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1919 the Social Democrat city council of Vienna initiated a radical program of reforms designed to reshape the city's infrastructure along socialist lines. The centerpiece and most enduring achievement of "Red" Vienna was the construction of the Wiener Gemeindebauten, 400 communal housing blocks, distributed throughout the city, in which workers' dwellings were incorporated with kindergartens, libraries, medical clinics, theaters, cooperative stores, and other public facilities. The 64,000 units housed one tenth of the city's population. Throughout this socialist building campaign, however, Austria was ruled by a conservative, clerical, and antisocialist political majority. Thus the architecture of Red Vienna took shape in the midst of highly charged, and often violent, political conflict between left and right. In this book, Eve Blau looks at how that ideological conflict shaped the buildings of Red Vienna--in terms of their program, spatial conception, language, and use--as well as how political meaning itself is manifested in architecture. She shows how the architecture of Red Vienna constructed meaning in relation to the ideological conflicts that defined Austrian politics in the interwar period--how it was shaped by the conditions of its making, and how it engaged its own codes, practices, and history to stake out a political position in relation to those conditions. Her investigation sheds light both on the complex relationship among political program, architectural practice, and urban history in interwar Vienna, and on the process by which architecture can generate a collective discourse that includes all members of society.

Architecture and its image : four centuries of architectural representation : works from the collection of the Canadian Centre for Architecture by Centre canadien d'architecture( Book )

Under the headings Architecture in Three Dimensions, Architecture in Place and Time, and Architecture in Process, essays by six scholars use the concept of serial imagery to explore the complex relationship between various types of architectural representations and their subject matter: projective drawings (Robin Evans), 19th-century urban survey photography (Eve Blau), the travel narratives of English architectural "explorers" from the mid-18th to the mid-19th century (Edward Kaufman), festival and theater architecture (William Alexander McClung), architectural publications, competitions, and exhibitions (Helene Lipstadt), and computer graphics (Robert Bruegmann)

Project Zagreb : transition as condition, strategy, practice by Eve Blau( Book )

11 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 173 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Transition is a condition that creates opportunities for architecture and urbanism. Zagreb is the perfect site for examining this generative dynamic: practicing in conditions of continuous instability, its architects and planners developed strategies for creatively engaging the conditional and open-ended—for anticipating and instrumentalizing the condition of irresolution. Moving between texts, maps, and diagrams, Project Zagreb reads the city as an open work, dynamic but coherent, in which architecture plays an active role in the formation of both urban practices and the city itself

Baku. Oil and urbanism by Eve Blau( Book )

6 editions published between 2012 and 2018 in English and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Baku? Oil and Urbanism' ist die erste Studie zur Wechselwirkung zwischen Erdöl und Städtebau. Baku, Hauptstadt des heutigen Aserbaidschan, das Teil des Russischen Kaiserreichs war und bis 1991 zur Sowjetunion gehörte, erlebte in der Folge der Erdölförderung ab 1873 einen beispiellosen Wachstums- und Innovationsschub. Wegen seiner grossen wirtschaftlichen Bedeutung blieb Baku auch in der Sowjetzeit ein Modernisierungslabor und war ab 1948 Schauplatz eines der weltweit spektakulärsten Städtebau- und Infrastrukturprojekte: Neft Dashlari, die erste Offshore-Ölförderplattform der Welt, eine ganze Stadt auf Stelzen im Kaspischen Meer. Die Erschliessung der unter dem Meeresgrund gelegenen Ölvorräte beschert Baku gegenwärtig seinen zweiten Ölboom.0
