35 editions published between 1991 and 2011 in 4 languages and held by 523 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Scarcely any other contemporary building has been the focus of so much attention and heated discussion as the Jewish Museum in Berlin. This guide to the museum's architecture sheds light on its symbolism as well as on the philosophy behind it. The historic and social significance of this museum extends far beyond the bounds of the city. Its already famous zigzag structure challenges the very way we regard architecture

The Terragni atlas : built architectures by Attilio Alberto Terragni( Book )

15 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 307 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Published on the occasion of the centenary of the birth of Giuseppe Terragni, this 'Atlas' is a new and original volume presenting sixteen works built by the Como-born architect between 1925 and 1941, with previously unpublished photos, original writings and polemical articles by Terragni himself dealing with the reasoning and fundamental themes underlying his work. For the first time, this volume allows readers to conduct a direct analysis of the masterpieces built by Giuseppe Terragni and to reasses the significance of his oeuvre. Starting out with a comparison of oroginal images and contemporary photographs, the 'Atlas' is organised on three levels given that the works of Giuseppe Terragni simultaneously occupy different worlds and express different aspirations: the first level for the contemporary texts, the second for the photographs and the third for the original texts, thus bringing together in a single volume contemporaneity, simultaneity and historical documentation"--Page 17

Never built New York by Greg Goldin( Book )

5 editions published in 2016 in English and Spanish and held by 192 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

New York towers among world capitals, but they city we know might have never reached even more stellar heights, or burrowed into more destructive depths, had the ideas pictured in the minds of its greatest dreamers progressed beyond the drawing board and taken form in stone, steel, and glass. What is wonderfully elegant and grand might easily have been ingloriously grandiose; what is blandly remarkable might have been delightfully provocative or humanely inspiring. Nearly 200 ambitious projects spanning 200 years encompass bridges, skyscrapers, mass-transit plans, parks, streets and highways, amusements, airports, schemes to fill in rivers and extend Manhattan, and much, much more. Included are unrealized visions for such landmarks as Central Park, Columbus Circle, Lincoln Center, the United Nations, Grand Central Terminal, the World Trade Center site, and many other locales in Manhattan, the Bronx, Queens, Brooklyn, and Staten Island. From the authors of Never Built Los Angeles, this hidden history--brimming with fact-filled and entertaining texts, as well as hundreds of sketches, renderings, prints, and models drawn from archives across the country--takes us on a thrilling journey through an alternative New York

Berlin's Jewish Museum-- a personal tour with Daniel Libeskind by Michael Blackwood( Visual )

11 editions published between 2000 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 186 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This extraordinary haunting building, a zig-zag form reflecting an invisible matrix of addresses of Jewish Berliners who once lived in the area, is Daniel Libeskind's first commission. It took ten years to build, and it has become an integral part of the cityscape, attracting vast numbers of visitors and signaling a new era of Jewish-German history. Libeskind is questioned by Alan Riding, New York Times journalist, as he takes him through the building, which was initially intended as a simple annex to the adjacent baroque Berlin Museum. His concept for the new wing, though, was intentionally so incompatible with the main building that there was no way to connect them aboveground. To arrive in the Jewish Museum, visitors must enter through the 18th-century building and then descend to underground passageways and "voids," which in themselves give a strong sense of the tragic fate of the German-Jewish population during the Hitler years, even without any exhibitions in place. During this walking tour, Libeskind lays bare to Riding the entire architectural and philosophical concept of the building, an absolutely unique construct of innovation, intellectual prowess, and direct allusions to the lives and work of Berlin's pre-Nazi population of Jewish literati and artists, such as Walter Benjamin and Arnold Schönberg

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 68 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Architecture is not based on concrete and steel and the elements of the soil," says Daniel Libeskind. "It's based on wonder." In this TEDTAlk, the renowned architect shares 17 words - including "raw," "risky," and "radical" - that underlie his vision for architecture and offer inspiration for any bold creative pursuit. Libeskind, perhaps best known for his controversial design for the rebuilt World Trade Center, talks about architecture reflecting the mood of a society, the emotionality of cities, and his mission to create spaces that are vibrant, pluralistic, and transformative
Deconstructivist architects( Visual )

Interviews with architects currently designing deconstructivist architectural projects, a new international design movement that is now challenging post-modernism and transforming modernism. Both young and established architects from Tokyo to London to Los Angeles are developing intense and purposefully 'accidental' works that are not about beautiful composition, symmetry or regular rhythmic order, but about the erosion of what might be called architectural certainty

Daniel Libeskind : Denver Art Museum, Frederic C. Hamilton Building by Muffie Dunn( Visual )

2 editions published between 2008 and 2012 in English and held by 49 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Architect Daniel Libeskind first gained world-wide attention when his haunting, zig-zag-shaped Jewish Museum opened in Berlin in 1999. After his dramatic urban design plan for Ground Zero was selected by city and state officials in 2002, Libeskind became a household name in America. Now with his first work of architecture to be realized in the U.S., an addition to the Denver Art Museum, the American public has a chance to examine his unconventional talents. In this filmed tour of the Denver Art Museum's Hamilton Building, Libeskind explains his unusual, titanium-clad, shard-like building. The dazzling geometry we see on the exterior is reflected inside to provide spectacular space and arresting angles for viewing contemporary art. The sculptural building of fractured planes insouciantly claims its status as a major landmark in American museum architecture"--Container
