Style in the technical and tectonic arts, or, Practical aesthetics by Gottfried Semper( Book )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 263 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The enduring influence of the architect Gottfried Semper (1803-79) derives less from his monumental buildings in Dresden, Zurich, and Vienna than from his Style in the Technical and Tectonic Arts (1860-63). Semper's landmark survey of the motives giving rise to the technical arts (textiles, ceramics, carpentry, masonry) explores the symbolic and material preconditions of style. An extended inquiry into the inner principles of artistic form, this work radically altered the intellectual field for aesthetics and art history and stands as a vital document in the consolidation of modern architectural theory."--Jacket

Interior spaces : space, light, material by Christian Schittich( )

4 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From the meditative ambience of a purist devotional room to the colourful, organic forms of shop furnishings, the design of an interior space influences its atmosphere and lends a specific character. Together with the features of the room itself and the lighting, the materials used, their surfaces, textures, and colourings help determine the general effect of the interior. In the last few years there has been a growing willingness on the part of designers to experiment with colours and designs, and this book will present a wide range of international examples which reveal the sheer diversity of possibilities when planning interiors." "This publication is the third volume in the series "in DETAIL" and will explore the various aspects of design with particular reference to the use of space and materials; carefully selected examples will highlight their aesthetic qualities and potential applications. All plans and drawings of interiors and furnishings have been carefully researched and drawn by the staff of DETAIL. Selected authors discuss the broad spectrum of tasks issues which emerge when dealing with interiors and document their solutions."--Jacket

Living plans : new concepts for advanced housing by Klaus-Peter Gast( Book )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ground plan concepts for contemporary international housing are no longer dominated by standardized solutions and stylistic attitudes. They derive mainly from their occupants' widely varying lifestyles, so new principles for advanced spatial solutions have emerged very recently. The present basic work presents innovative ways of living in over 100 realized buildings. The examples extend from cost-optimized minimal housing via classical detached family houses and lavishly furnished villas to high-density detached and terraced homes in the city and on the outskirts. These novel Living Plans are analysed using elaborate new drawings of the ground plans, sections and spatial schemes, along with atmospheric photographs."--Jacket

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"There is something fascinating about translucent materials. More than clear glass alone, they give architects fascinating scope for handling light sensually and creating an exciting interplay between interior and exterior. The kind of atmosphere that used to be achieved with stained-glass windows in churches, thinly cut slabs of natural stone or paper coverings is reinterpreted for today with innovative special glasses, plastic sheeting, membranes or perforated metals."--BOOK JACKET
