16 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 877 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Color is inextricably linked with architecture; as a design element and also as an inherent quality, it characterizes the shape and texture of the built fabric. This book presents extraordinary color schemes, both in terms of technology and aesthetics, for ground-breaking architecture with a wide spectrum of functions: from apartment to concert hall, from flagship store to city park. The focus is on the works of the three architects Frank O. Gehry, Jean Nouvel and Wang Shu. This is expanded by the works of other practices such as BIG, Zaha Hadid, Herzog & de Meuron, Toyo Ito and SANAA. This publication presents a compendium that documents color schemes in architecture in the context of very different aesthetic approaches. The large-format photographs by Iwan Baan, Christian Richters, Roland Halbe and Philippe Ruault fascinate with their clarity and presence

Piet Mondrian : the studios : Amsterdam, Laren, Paris, London, New York by Piet Mondrian( Book )

4 editions published in 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 211 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Here is a visual journey through Piet Mondrian's life and career via the artist's studios, following his path from Amsterdam to Laren, and then to Paris, London and New York. Each location represents a distinct stage in the development of Mondrian's art, from the naturalistic paintings of the 1890s and the experimental neo-Impressionist works of the early 20the century to his involvement with the De Stijl movement and his famous grid paintings, and finally the bold dynamism of his late work in the United States, inspired by the rhythms of jazz and the buzzing metropolis. Mondrian saw his studios as more than just workspaces; they were the embodiment of his artistic and philosophical ideas. As his art took simplification of form to an extreme, the walls of his studios became ever-changing planes that he used for the display of primary-colored rectangles. -- from dust jacket

Ten principles for good design : Dieter Rams : the Jorrit Maan collection( Book )

3 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 63 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For decades, anyone who cared about product design looked to the Braun label when choosing their appliances, radios, and other consumer items. Now Dieter Rams, the guiding force behind the Braun look, breaks down his design principles and processes in this elegant book. Enumerating each of his ten principles such as good design is innovative; good design is aesthetic; good design is useful, etc., this book presents one hundred items that embody these guidelines. Readers will find items that are familiar such as the ubiquitous coffee grinder but also those that are more unusual such as shelving systems and cigarette lighters. A fascinating essay places Dieter Rams in the context of modern design, from Bauhaus to Philip Johnson. Archival materials include photos of Rams' design team and excerpts from his publications and speeches. The book closes with a chronological overview of design icons, categorized by function, that show the enormous breadth of Rams' vision. Taken together, these images and texts offer the most comprehensive overview of Dieter Rams' work to date and will serve as both a reference and an inspiration for anyone interested in how and why good design matters
