Modern architecture; being the Kahn lectures for 1930 by Frank Lloyd Wright( Book )

3 editions published between 1931 and 2008 in English and held by 612 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Modern Architecture is a landmark text - the first book in which America's greatest architect put forth the principles of a fundamentally new, organic architecture that would reject the trappings of historical styles while avoiding the geometric abstraction of the machine aesthetic advocated by contemporary European modernists. One of the most important documents in the development of modern architecture and the career of Frank Lloyd Wright, Modern Architecture is a provocative and profound polemic against America's architectural eclecticism, commercial skyscrapers, and misguided urban planning. This book is also a work of savvy self-promotion, in which Wright not only advanced his own concept of an organic architecture but also framed it as having anticipated by decades - and bettered - what he saw as the reductive modernism of his European counterparts. Based on the 1931 original, for which Wright supplied the cover illustration, this beautiful edition includes a new introduction that puts 'Modern Architecture' in its broader architectural, historical, and intellectual context for the first time. The subjects of these lively lectures - from 'Machinery, Materials and Men' to 'The Tyranny of the Skyscraper' and 'The City' - move from a general statement of the conditions of modern culture to particular applications in the fields of architecture and urbanism at ever broadening scales. Wright's vision in Modern Architecture is ultimately to equate the truly modern with romanticism, imagination, beauty, and nature - all of which he connects with an underlying sense of American democratic freedom and individualism

Magnificent buildings, splendid gardens by David R Coffin( Book )

2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 280 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Magnificent Buildings, Splendid Gardens returns to print some of the most important works of David Coffin, a leading authority on Renaissance architecture who, as one of the first scholars to apply the tools of art history to the study of gardens, became a founder of the discipline of garden and landscape studies. These essays span the wide range of Coffin's work, from Italian Renaissance architecture, garden design, sculpture, and drawings to English gardens and landscape designers of the seventeenth to early nineteenth centuries. Coffin's approaches are as varied as his subject matter. Some of these essays present the results of his archival research, including his discovery of crucial documents on the Emilian architect Giovan Battista Aleotti and the only documentary evidence identifying Vignola as the architect of the Villa Lante at Bagnaia. Other essays take a much broader cultural view, investigating, for example, the phenomenon of public access to private Renaissance gardens, elucidating the evolving meaning of images of the goddess Venus in English gardens, and identifying the significance of the decorative programs of monuments as diverse as the Villa Belvedere in Rome and the eighteenth-century gardens at Rousham in Oxfordshire."--Publisher's description

The Hellenistic and Roman fine pottery by Shelley Clyde Stone( Book )

3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 54 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Excavation of the ancient city of Morgantina in southeastern Sicily since 1955 has recovered an extraordinary quantity and variety of pottery, both locally made and imported. This volume presents the fine-ware pottery dating between the second half of the fourth century BCE, when Morgantina was a thriving inland center closely tied to the Hellenistic east through Syracuse, and the first half of the first century CE, when Morgantina had been reduced to a dwindling Roman provincial town that would soon be abandoned. Bearing gloss and often paint or relief, these fine ceramics were mostly tablew

Tibet township map & place name index = Bod kyi grong brdal dang grong tshoʼi sa khra by Wangyal Shawa( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Map shows townships, county headquarters, county and provincial boundaries, major rivers and roads. The map and township index information is based on the 2000 Chinese Census township level administrative units (fourth-level of census geography unit). Includes Jiedao (urban street location), Zhen (township with urban population) and Xiang (township without urban population). Presently map publications of this area are done in Chinese and transliterated to Pinyin phonetic system. The goal of this map and companion index is to contribute to the creation of a comprehensive Tibetan geographic name database that will capture locations that were or are in Tibetan to correct previous errors. Many Tibetan phonemes are not translatable to Chinese characters, therefore, a phonetic transcription is difficult to render to the Pinyin system
