New glass architecture by Brent Richards( Book )

10 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 391 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For centuries, glass has provoked fascination with its properties as a versatile material that permits light to enter buildings in spectacular ways. Much of modern architecture has been conceived by using glass to create increasingly minimal structures, to promote the notion of lightweight construction solutions, and to allow maximum daylight into buildings. New Glass Architecture showcases the changing ways that aesthetics and methods for using glass have been developing since the 1990s. The book begins with an introduction that traces the history of key moments in glass architecture--from the stained glass windows of Chartres Cathedral to the Crystal Palace of 1851, and early constructions by John Soane, Bruno Taut, Le Corbusier, and Mies van der Rohe. Author Brent Richards explains the importance of glass artists in the second half of the 20th century and describes developments in glass technology over the last twenty years. Beautifully illustrated with newly commissioned photographs by Dennis Gilbert, the book features twenty-five case studies of recent glass constructions from around the world by such leading architects as Foster and Partners, Frank Gehry, Herzog & de Meuron, Steven Holl, Toyo Ito & Associates, Jean Nouvel, Raphael Vinoly, and Peter Zumthor. Each building is illustrated in full color and accompanied by detailed drawings."--Publisher's website
The statues of London by Claire Bullus( Book )

5 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 100 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Statues of London is a photographic survey of more than eighty of the best and most interesting statues throughout the capital, from Boadicca near the Houses of Parliament to Bobby Moore at Wembley Stadium. Some of London's best-loved landmarks, among them Lord Nelson atop the column in Trafalgar Square and 'Eros' at Piccadilly Circus, are featured alongside less-familiar statues, such as those of Tsar Peter the Great in Deptford and, near Marble Arch, Raoul Wallenberg, the Swedish diplomat who saved the lives of thousands of Hungarian Jews during the Second World War. Specially commissioned images by photographer Dennis Gilbert capture the scale and intricacy of these works in bronze and stone. They are accompanied by a compact biography of each commemorated figure, together with an engaging commentary on the statue itself and its sculptor. This book celebrates some of history's most remarkable individuals and brings to life London's greatest monuments."--Jacket

Renault Centre : Swindon, 1982 by Chris Abel( Book )

3 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A documentation of the Renault Centre (winner of four awards), describing how it was designed and engineered, using documentation from the Foster Associates' archives. The author argues that it is the first of a new breed of buildings in which computer-controlled technology is exploited to an unprecedented degree in the construction of a low-cost building. The building, designed by architect Sir Norman Foster is seen as a technical milestone in 20th century architecture and the augmentation of the text with a set of detailed technical drawings and fact-sheets enables the reader to see clearly how the building was fitted together. The book is intended for the use of architects, engineers and students. The book is part of the "Architecture in Detail" series. The books do not carry a contents list. The common layout of the books in the series is: essay, photographs, specially commissioned drawings, reference details (bibliography and chronology). Each of these monographs is designed to be a complete and accurate archival record and intended to be the standard reference on that building for students and scholars as well as practising architects
