Emilio Ambasz : a technological Arcadia by Fulvio Irace( Book )

16 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and Italian and held by 236 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A monograph devoted to the celebrated international architect and designer, known for his otherworldly designs that skillfully unite architecture and landscape. A deviser of innovative systems and setter of cultural trends, Emilio Ambasz reinvents the universe by creating urban complexes that rise like volcanoes of glass, works of architecture that are natural landscapes and gardens that turn into artificial mechanisms of the city, in a range of spatial and urbanistic proposals of absolute originality. The monograph documents the creative world of this Argentine-born-American-based architect-designer from the crystalline complex of the San Antonio Botanical Center in Texas (1982) to the transparent container (Aqua Dove Mineral Water Bottle, 1987) and the opaque and granite office tower in Phoenix (1998), and focuses on his more recent works. Emilio Ambasz, born in 1943 in Argentina, studied at Princeton University. He completed the undergraduate program in one year and earned a Master's Degree in Architecture from the same institution the next year. He served as Curator of Design at The Museum of Modern Art in New York (1970-76), where he directed and installed numerous influential exhibits on architecture and industrial design. He is the recipient of numerous awards for excellence in architecture and design

Made in slums : Mathare // Nairobi by Fulvio Irace( Book )

4 editions published in 2013 in Italian and English and held by 45 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"There are about 500,000 people living in Mathare, the second largest slum in Nairobi. The people who live there see the endless deluge of waste coming from the capital each day as a godsend: an unexpected gift to take and put to use in their daily routine, to face hardships and poverty through the weapon of design. So much is hidden amongst the waste: pots and pans for cooking, brooms for cleaning, saws for chopping, tools used to move coal without getting burnt, pliers and hammers to manipulate materials, ladles and rakes, mouse traps, lamps to light up their homes, shoes to protect bare feet from the rugged, unsafe terrain. There are also clothes to dress up in, drums to make music as well as toys for children, which cover a range of needs, including the rights of beauty and imagination. The logic is that of mass production, but made with a handcrafted nature; a expression of an internal economy that wa created to satisfy the needs of those who do not have access to consumer goods offered by the market"--Page four of cover
