The architectural uncanny : essays in the modern unhomely by Anthony Vidler( Book )

30 editions published between 1992 and 1999 in English and Spanish and held by 623 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Architectural Uncanny presents an engaging and original series of meditations on issues and figures that are at the heart of the most pressing debates surrounding architecture today. Anthony Vidler interprets contemporary buildings and projects in light of the resurgent interest in the uncanny as a metaphor for a fundamentally "unhomely" modern condition. The essays are at once historical - serving to situate contemporary discourse in its own intellectual tradition and theoretical - opening up the complex and difficult relationships between politics, social thought, and architectural design in an era when the reality of homelessness and the idealism of the neo-avant-garde have never seemed so far apart. Vidler, one of the deftest and surest critics of the contemporary scene, explores aspects of architecture through notions of the uncanny as they have been developed in literature, philosophy, and psychology from the beginning of the nineteenth century to the present. He interprets the unsettling qualities of today's architecture - its fragmented neo-constructivist forms reminiscent of dismembered bodies, its "seeing walls" replicating the passive gaze of domestic cyborgs, its historical monuments indistinguishable from glossy reproductions - in the light of modern reflection on questions of social and individual estrangement, alienation, exile, and homelessness. Focusing on the work of architects such as Bernard Tschumi, Rem Koolhaas, Peter Eisenman, Coop Himmelblau, John Hejduk, Elizabeth Diller, and Ricardo Scofidio, as well as theorists of the urban condition, Vidler delineates the problems and paradoxes associated with the subject of domesticity. Anthony Vidler is William R. Kenan, Jr. Professor of Architecture at Princeton University. His most recent book is Claude-Nicolas Ledoux: Architecture and Social Reform at the End of the Ancien Regime

Mike Kelley by John C Welchman( Book )

14 editions published between 1999 and 2011 in English and held by 568 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Scene of the crime by Ralph Rugoff( Book )

12 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 419 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Scene of the Crime surveys thirty-five years of West Coast art, investigating aesthetic practices that address the art object as a kind of evidence, a clue to absent meanings and prior actions. From seminal works by Ed Ruscha, Bruce Nauman, Barry Le Va, and Vija Celmins to recent works by artists such as Paul McCarthy, James Luna, Anthony Hernandez, and Sharon Lockhart, this art declares that it is about more than meets the eye and raises the suspicion that a significant segment of contemporary art demands a forensic reading
Histories of the immediate present : inventing architectural modernism by Anthony Vidler( Book )

25 editions published between 2008 and 2016 in 4 languages and held by 388 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Anthony Vidler looks at the historical approaches of Emil Kaufmann, Colin Rowe, Reyner Banham, and Manfredo Tafuri, and the specific versions of modernism advanced by their historical narratives. Vidler shows that the modernism conceived by Kaufmann was like the late Enlightenment projects he revered, one of pure geometrical forms and elemental composition; that of Rowe saw manifest ambiguity and complexity in contemporary design; Banham's modernism took its cue from the aspirations of the futurists; and the "Renaissance modernism" of Tafuri found its source in the division between the technical experimentation of Brunelleschi and the cultural nostalgia of Alberti. Vidler's investigation demonstrates the inevitable collision between history and design that pervades all modern architectural discourse - and has given rise to some of the most interesting architectural experiments of the postwar period."--Jacket

James Casebere by Anthony Vidler( Book )

7 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 324 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For the last 20 years, James Casebere has constructed increasingly complex small-scale architectural models that are carefully built and then subtly lit and photographed in the studio. These table-sized models are made of simple materials, pared down to essential forms, empty of both extraneous detail and action. Casebere's disconcerting ''sites'' recall prisons, monasteries, tunnels, factories and other such spaces. Casebere has gained increasing international acclaim in recent years as the leading proponent of what has become known as ''constructed photography.'' This is the first publication to comprehensively survey Casebere's career in its entirety, and provides an important contextual and visual framework in which to posit his soaring international reputation. His oeuvre can be seen in the full scope of its development, from his early preoccupation with the genre of the Western and the suburban home, to his concern with institutional buildings, to his recent investigations into the relationships between social control and social structures."--Publisher's description
James Frazer Stirling : notes from the archive by Anthony Vidler( Book )

14 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in English and held by 310 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The British architect James Frazer Stirling (1924-1992) stimulated impassioned responses among both supporters and detractors, and he continues to be the subject of fierce debate. He earned international renown through such innovative--and frequently controversial--projects as the Leicester University Engineering Building (1959-63); the History Faculty building at Cambridge University (1964-67); the Neue Staatsgalerie, Stuttgart (1977-84); the Clore Gallery at Tate Britain (1984); and the Arthur M. Sackler Museum at Harvard University (1979-84). Stirling was also a visiting professor at the Yale School of Architecture, where he trained and influenced many of the current leaders in the field. Fully illustrated with previously unpublished documents and new photography from the James Stirling/Michael Wilford Archive at the Canadian Centre for Architecture, Montreal, this book allows for a close examination of design drawings, photographs, and models spanning Stirling's entire career. These materials deepen our understanding of the influences, early formation, approach, and process of an architect whose work resists labeling. Filled with in-depth analytical and critical presentations of exemplary projects and their reception, the volume reveals Stirling to be a remarkably informed and consistent thinker and writer on architecture."--Publisher's website

Antony Gormley : blind light by Anthony Vidler( Book )

14 editions published in 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 275 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Anthony Gormley is widely recognised as one of the most imaginative and original artists working in the UK today. This illustrated book accompanies the exhibition Anthony Gormley: Blind Light at The Hayward, the artist's first major showing in London in over 25 years." "Since the 1980s Gormley has focused consistently on the human figure, often using his own body as the starting point for works that explore our perception of space, architecture, and bodily presence." "Alongside specially commissioned photography of Gormley's major new projects, the book includes an original visual essay by the artist that elaborates his aesthetic preoccupations with images selected from his own photographic archive. Essays from leading writers and scholars Anthony Vidler, Susan Stewart and W.J.T. Mitchell provide a context in which to understand Gormley's new work, while an in-depth interview with The Hayward Director Ralph Rugoff and co-curator Jacky Klein reconsiders Gormley's place within contemporary culture and the history of art."--Jacket
Follies : architecture for the late-twentieth-century landscape by B.J Archer( Book )

Anish Kapoor : whiteout by Anish Kapoor( Book )

6 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 217 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The immediacy of Anish Kapoor's sculpture is often said to evoke the sublime. His signature use of vibrant color and organic forms combine to dominate, astonish, and redefine the relationship between object and viewer, sculpture and space. In the new body of work presented here, Kapoor introduces a previously unexplored range of materials and surfaces, furthering his already complex dialogue between form and void, the corporeal and the infinite. Using mirror-like polished steel, or white surfaces so intensely pure that they virtually defy the gaze, the artist has created works that are visceral, yet also evoke a rich array of philosophical underpinnings and resonances."--BOOK JACKET
