Chora L works : Jacques Derrida and Peter Eisenman by Jacques Derrida( Book )

Derrida and Eisenman's design process was guided by Plato's chora text from the Timeaus; their unique reciprocal relationship was an interchange - and transformation - of voices
The formal basis of modern architecture by Peter Eisenman( Book )

36 editions published between 1900 and 2018 in 3 languages and held by 318 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Peter Eisenman - world-famous for his Holocaust Memorial in Berlin (2005) - confronts historicism with theory and the analysis of form, whose distinguishing features he regards as the foundation of architectural composition. The architect illustrates his observations with numerous, extremely precise hand drawings. Eisenman wrote 'The Formal Basis of Modern Architecture', his dissertation, in 1963 at the University of Cambridge. The dissertation was first published as a facsimile edition in 2006. The original content of the publication is now available again - the book is reprinted in a smaller format. "I knew what I wanted to write," Eisenman says of the dissertation. "An analytic work that related what I had learned to see, from Palladio to Terragni, from Raphael to Guido Reni, into some theoretical construct that would bear on modern architecture, but from the point of view of a certain autonomy of form." Hence the title of his research

Giuseppe Terragni : transformations, decompositions, critiques by Peter Eisenman( Book )

18 editions published between 1990 and 2003 in English and held by 279 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Forty years in the making, Giuseppe Terragni: Transformations, Decompositions, Critiques documents and investigates two of Italian rationalist architect Giuseppe Terragni's masterworks: the Casa del Fascio (1933-36) and the Casa Giuliani-Frigerio (1939-40), both in Como. This far-reaching study -- illustrated with more than five hundred original architectural diagrams and archival photographs -- employs what Eisenman calls critical and textual reading of both buildings. He attempts to broaden the definition of the formal from a narrow aesthetic and compositional view to include first the conceptual and then the textual. It is through this idea of the textual that Eisenman begins to define an idea of the critical in architecture. Eisenman's methodology is wholly removed from traditional approaches -- social, historical, aesthetic, functional. Instead, the various articulations and openings on the facades constitute a set of marks, notations that provide the basis for his analysis. In the Casa del Fascio, for example, each of the four sequential design schemes records the previous state, encoding the process of transformation in the final building. In the Casa Giuliani-Frigerio it is instead the process of decomposition that generates the facades. Also included in the book are an essay by Terragni and a critique by Manfredo Tafuri. In the end, it is the dual protagonists -- the architect and the author -- who together establish a new theoretical and analytical framework." -- Publisher description

The architecture of Gwathmey Siegel : in search of clarity( Visual )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 147 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Charles Gwathmey has held steadfast to the spirit of modernism in his architecture from the day he successfully built his parents' home in 1967 based on the theories of Le Corbusier and American individualism. Avoiding the nostalgia of fashionable postmodernism throughout the eighties, Gwathmey partnered with Robert Siegel, and their firm continues to create innovative houses, corporate, institutional and university buildings across America. This documentary ranges from the deMenil villa on the dunes of Easthampton to their Guggenheim Museum addition. We hear from such leading architects as Philip Johnson and Peter Eisenman, and from filmmaker Steven Spielberg, who describes how a journey through a Gwathmey Siegel house creates the same sense of drama as a well-made movie. Producer: Alice Shure. Director: Murray Grigor
