Paul Klee : the abstract dimension by Paul Klee( Book )

4 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 128 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Paul Klee (1879?1940) is one of the most influential painters of European modernism. With an oeuvre comprising nearly ten thousand works, numerous solo and group exhibitions of his work have been mounted well beyond his lifetime. To this very day, the intense interest in his work has not waned. And yet there has never been an exhibition that has extensively examined Klee?s relationship to abstraction. The show at the Fondation Beyeler?along with the accompanying catalogue, which is ?underscored? by insightful texts from well-known authors?is closing this gap. Four groups of themes?nature, architecture, painting, and graphic characters?make up the golden thread through Klee?s body of work whose formal repertoire repeatedly oscillates between the semi-representational and the absolute abstract, and which are examined here in separate chapters. Thus one not only gains in-depth insight into Klee?s involvement with abstraction?new references to his contemporaries, as well as to artists of later generations, are unveiled.00Exhibition: Fondation Beyeler, Riehen/Basel, Switzerland (01.10.2017?21.01.2018)

Atmosphären : architektonische Umgebungen - die Dinge um mich herum by Peter Zumthor( Book )

9 editions published between 2006 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 99 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Was <<eine architektonische Atmosphäre wirklich ausmacht>>, sagt Peter Zumthor, ist <<diese einmalige Dichte und Stimmung, dieses Gefühl von Gegenwart, Wohlbefinden, Stimmigkeit, Schönheit ... in deren Bann ich etwas erlebe und erfahre, was ich in dieser Qualität sonst nicht erleben würde.>>Seine Leidenschaft gilt der Erschaffung von Gebäuden mit solchen Wirkungsqualitäten, doch wie lassen sich diese eigentlich erzielen? In neun kurzen, illustrierten Kapiteln erzählt Peter Zumthor - gleichsam in Form einer Selbstbeobachtung- was ihn umtreibt, wenn er die Atmosphäre seiner Häuser zu erschaffen versucht. Dabei sind Bilder von Räumen und Bauten, die ihn berühren, ebenso wichtig wie bestimmte Musikstücke oder Bücher, die ihn inspirieren. Von der Komposition und Präsenz der Materialien über den Umgang mit Proportionen bis hin zur Wirkung des Lichts macht diese Architekturpoesie nachvollziehbar, worauf es beim Entwurf von Häusern ankommt.

Louise Bourgeois, Peter Zumthor : Steilneset Memorial : the possessed, the damned and the beloved : to the victims of the Finnmark witchcraft trials by Louise Bourgeois( Book )

3 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 73 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book documents a unique collaboration between the artist Louise Bourgeois (1911-2010) and the architect Peter Zumthor (born 1943). The 'Steilneset Memorial', opened in 2011, is a monument in Vardø, Norway, commemorating the 17th-century trial and execution of 91 women for witchcraft. The brainchild of the National Tourist Routes project in Norway (a government-sponsored initiative which aims to attract visitors to remote but exceptionally beautiful locations), the 'Steilneset Memorial' started out as a modest monument to honor the victims of the witchcraft trials, to be built on the site where the burnings originally took place. But the project, which would be Bourgeois' last major work, grew in the hands of Zumthor and Bourgeois into two distinct, haunting structures

Serpentine Gallery Pavilion 2011 : hortus conclusus( Book )

4 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 57 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The concept for this year’s Pavilion is the hortus conclusus, a contemplative room, a garden within a garden. One enters the building from the lawn and begins the transition into the central garden, a place abstracted from the world of noise and traffic and the smells of London – an interior space within which to sit, to walk, to observe the flowers."

Sfeer bouwen = Building atmosphere by Juhani Pallasmaa( Book )

7 editions published in 2013 in Dutch and English and held by 51 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Atmosphere is an essential concept for Swiss architect Peter Zumthor. In his text Atmospheres (1996), Zumthor identified a series of themes that play a role in his work in achieving architectonic atmosphere. OASE exchanges ideas with Zumthor about the current relevance of this text, and about the practice of bringing together these elements in the design and construction process. Finnish architect Juhani Pallasmaa relates atmosphere in architecture to examples and theories from other disciplines like psychology and the visual arts. Zumthor and Pallasmaa also introduce the work of contemporary architects who in their view succeed in truly creating atmosphere through construction
