Studies in tectonic culture : the poetics of construction in nineteenth and twentieth century architecture by Kenneth Frampton( Book )

7 editions published between 1995 and 2001 in English and held by 578 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Studies in Tectonic Culture is nothing less than a rethinking of the entire modern architectural tradition. The notion of tectonics as employed by Frampton - the focus on architecture as a constructional craft - constitutes a direct challenge to current mainstream thinking on the artistic limits of postmodernism, and suggests a convincing alternative." "The book's ten essays and an epilogue trace the history of contemporary form as an evolving poetics of structure and construction. Its analytical framework rests on Frampton's close readings of key French, German, and English sources from the eighteenth century to the present."--Cover
Plain modern : the architecture of Brian MacKay-Lyons by Malcolm Quantrill( )

10 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 540 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The austere beauty of the Nova Scotia landscape serves as an integral part of the architecture of Brian MacKay-Lyons. The work of this native son responds to this unique topography and to the vernacular building traditions that define its communities. His houses, nestled along the Atlantic coast, combine regional forms with local materials, technologies, and building practices to create works that are linked to their environments." "In recent years, as MacKay-Lyons's practice has rapidly expanded to include institutional work on an international scale, the architect has pushed the classifications of critical regionalism and cultural sustainability to new extremes. In this book, historian and critic Malcom Quantrill crafts a telling portrait of MacKay-Lyons, elucidating the "peculiar regionality" of his firm's work and the methodology it employs, which has enabled it to transcend national bounds."--Jacket

Explorations : the architecture of John Ronan by John Ronan( )

5 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 431 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

John Ronan Architects' award-winning Gary Comer Youth Center was designed specifically to support the activities of Chicago's South Shore Drill Team; however, during the design process, the function of the space continued to evolve along with the client's goals, resulting in an architectural program that grew from a simple gym into a multifunctional space supporting a range of community and educational services. Explorations also features fully documented design processes for the recently completed Poetry Foundation in Chicago; the transformation of Washington, D.C.'s historic Yale Steam Laundry building into condominiums; the Urban Model High School, a new prototype school developed for the Public Building Commission of Chicago; and Precast Chapel, an economical concrete chapel for promoting interfaith dialogue and religious understanding. Ronan's ability to deliver adaptability along with a sense of identity and place renders his work both timely and destined to age with grace and dignity--meaningful additions to their environs that hold significant value to both building clients and end users. Explorations features a foreword by Toshiko Mori, chair of the department of architecture at the Harvard Graduate School of Design; an essay by highly respected Chicago-based architect Brad Lynch; and a Q & A with John Ronan conducted by Robert McAnulty

Photography and architecture in the modern age( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 277 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Architecture has long been a subject matter for photographers, who utilize the medium not just to document the built world, but also to reveal wider truths about society. This book features chapters devoted to various artists - among them, Berenice Abbott, Walker Evans, Ed Ruscha, Bernd and Hilla Becher, Andreas Gursky and Iwan Baan - and includes 220 color and duotone images. Each chapter opens with a text introducing the artists; work, followed by reproductions of their photographs. Arranged chronologically, the book documents the birth of the skyscraper against the backdrop of the Great Depression; the rise of the modernist tradition in America, post-colonial Africa, and India; the effects of industry on 1960s Europe; the increasing suburbanization of America and Europe; and the consequences of today's mass urbanization in Asia, the Middle East, and South America. Far-reaching and penetrating, this volume reflects on the ongoing dialogue between photography and architecture

Aldo Rossi and the spirit of architecture by Diane Ghirardo( Book )

1 edition published in 2019 in English and held by 100 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This crucial reassessment of Aldo Rossi's (1931-1997) architecture simultaneously examines his writings, drawings, and product design, including the coffeepots and clocks he designed for the Italian firm Alessi. The first Italian to receive the Pritzker Prize, Rossi rejected modernism, seeking instead a form of architecture that could transcend the aesthetic legacy of Fascism in postwar Italy. Rossi was a visionary who did not allow contemporary trends to dominate his thinking. His baroque sensibility and poetic approach, found both in his buildings and in important texts like The Architecture of the City, inspired the critic Ada Louise Huxtable to describe him as "a poet who happens to be an architect." Diane Ghirardo explores different categories of structures-monuments, public buildings, cultural institutions, theaters, and cemeteries-drawing significantly on previously unpublished archival materials and always keeping Rossi's own texts in the forefront. By delving into the relationships among Rossi's multifaceted life, his rich body of work, and his own reflections, this book provides a critical new understanding of Rossi's buildings and the place of architecture in postwar Italy
