Daniel Libeskind : Jewish Museum Berlin : between the lines by Bernhard Schneider( Book )

26 editions published between 1999 and 2007 in 3 languages and held by 484 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 Gateway Arch : a reflection of America( Visual )

4 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 351 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

People said that it would fall and that a poorly funded project would leave the nation with a half finished monument. In the end, it would become an international symbol of the United States. It is an architectural and design masterpiece that has touched everyone who has touched it. From the individuals who worked tirelessly to champion funding, to the Steel Workers who dangled 630 feet in the air during construction, it is a triumph that will forever mark the lives of those involved with it. It is ... The Gateway Arch. The Gateway Arch: A Reflection of America chronicles for the first time the complete story of this great American symbol ... From Thomas Jefferson, Lewis & Clark, and St. Louis' role in westward expansion; to the eventual construction of the largest stainless steel structure in history. The film is narrated by academy award-winner and St. Louis native Kevin Kline and produced by Civil Pictures, producers of the international award-winning documentary The World's Greatest Fair. Extensive research was conducted at archives across the United States to produce this documentary. Over 10,000 documents and images were examined, including Eero Saarinen's private papers and earliest conceptual drawings held at Yale University. The production team spent months tracking down long lost construction footage; transferred and seen here for the first time in digital cinema. The production team conducted countless behind-the-scenes interviews and 24 on-camera interviews over the course of two years. This process brought to light information previously unknown to the general public; including the fact that engineers feared the Arch would buckle when placing the final piece resulting in a catastrophic failure. Interviews with World Trade Center Memorial architect Daniel Libeskind, New York-based architecture critic Jayne Merkel, and Eero Saarinen's daughter Susan, give new insight into the genius of Saarinen's design as well as the fact that the technology to build his "ribbon of steel" did not exist in 1947 when he submitted his winning design. More than just a dry historical record, this movie presents a message of optimism, the human capacity to pursue dreams and America's ability to achieve great things
The Terragni atlas : built architectures by Attilio Alberto Terragni( Book )

15 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 312 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
Hommage à Daniel Libeskind by Claus-Steffen Mahnkopf( )

2 editions published in 2016 and held by 247 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Der Besuch des von Daniel Libeskind gestalteten Jüdischen Museums in Berlin im Jahr 2000 war für den Komponisten Claus-Steffen Mahnkopf eine prägende Erfahrung und zugleich Auslöser für seine bis heute andauernde künstlerische Auseinandersetzung mit dem Werk des Architekten. In einem zehnjährigen Zeitraum entstanden u. a. die drei Bände seiner Hommage à Daniel Libeskind. Gegründet auf das einzigartige Raumkonzept des Jüdischen Museums stellen sie einen faszinierenden Beitrag zur langen Geschichte der Begegnung von Musik und Architektur dar. Libeskinds Formideen finden dabei unmittelbare Entsprechungen in der Anlage des musikalischen Zyklus und erzeugen vielfältige Resonanzen. >Libeskind gelingt fast die Quadratur des Kreises, das Abwesende, das Verlorengegangene, das Zerstörte in Erinnerung zu rufen, ohne überdeutliche Gesten, ohne didaktische Winke, ohne alle Sentimentalität, einfach durch die Konsequenz des Bauplans.< (Claus-Steffen Mahnkopf)" (
Never built New York by Greg Goldin( Book )

5 editions published in 2016 in English and Spanish and held by 206 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 201 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 64 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."

Interviews with architects currently designing deconstructivist architectural projects, a new international design movement that is now challenging post-modernism and transforming modernism.
