Inside architecture by Vittorio Gregotti( Book )

29 editions published between 1072 and 2002 in 3 languages and held by 427 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Inside Architecture is a concise, insightful examination of the role the modernist project has played in late twentieth-century building, as well as an attempt to reconcile the dilemmas and shortcomings of modern orthodoxy with a renewed vision of modernism. Gregotti first identifies the elements of mass culture and public institutions that have led to the deterioration of natural and man-made environments. He then investigates eight issues - precision, technique, monumentality, modification, atopia, simplicity, procedure, and image - that influence the activities of contemporary architects. Gregotti is particularly suspicious of the deconstructivist argument and its heavy reliance on literary models. And he provides an incisive critique of the recent interest in modernist aesthetics, warning against reviving the forms of an old movement without considering the cultural and social criteria that once gave it purpose and meaning
Architecture, means and ends by Vittorio Gregotti( Book )

13 editions published between 2002 and 2010 in English and Italian and held by 249 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Vittorio Gregotti-the architect of Barcelona's Olympic Stadium, Milan's Arcimboldi Opera Theater, and Lisbon's Centro Cultural de BelTm, among other noted constructions-is not only a designer of international repute but an acclaimed theorist and critic. Architecture, Means and Ends is his practical and imaginative reflection on the role of the technical aspects of architectural design, both as part of the larger process of innovation and in relation to the mythic opposition between vision and construction." "Interweaving the seemingly irreconcilable concerns of aesthetics, meaning, and construction, Architecture, Means and Ends reflects Gregotti's overarching claim that buildings always have a symbolic cultural content. In this book, he argues that by making symbolic expression a primary objective in the design of a project, the designer will produce a practical aesthetic as well as an ethical solution. Architecture, Means and Ends embraces that philosophy and will appeal to those who are, like Gregotti, working at the intersection of the history of design, art criticism, and architectural theory."--Jacket

Architecture on display : on the history of the Venice Biennale of Architecture by Aaron Levy( Book )

6 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 103 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Features an unprecedented series of interviews that editors Aaron Levy and William Menking have conducted with each of the living directors of the Venice Biennale for Architecture, including Vittorio Gregotti, Paolo Portoghesi, Francesco Dal Co, Kurt Foster, Massimiliano Fuksas, Kazuyo Sejima, and Deyan Sudjic, among others. The origins of the architecture biennale are generally traced to the 1970s, when it emerged from under the umbrella of the larger Venice Biennale, which was itself established in 1895. Since then it has become one of the most prestigious forums for architectural discourse today, and has served as a model for a range of international exhibitions. This book explores the biennale through conversations with the directors who established its particular discourse, as well as with the current president of the Venice Biennale, Paolo Barrata. These conversations do not seek to recapitulate the exhibitions themselves but rather explore the questions that these exhibitions raise, with the hope of offering a model for future curatorial endeavours
