Diagonal strategies : Berger + Parkkinen Architekten by Berger + Parkkinen (Firm)( Book )

10 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 934 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The much noted international architects' practice, Berger + Parkkinen, was founded in 1995 by Alfred Berger and Tiina Parkkinen, with practices in Vienna and Helsinki. The practice has worked on a wide variety of projects, including a private medical university, and a timber residential building (together with querkraft Architects). The designs produced by Berger + Parkkinen are characterized by an uncluttered, elegant urbanity, as well as by an innovative use of materials. The Nordic Embassies in Berlin (1996-1999), for which the practice has received many awards, are some of their most published projects. This first monograph in the form of a bibliophilic, handy book comprises the documentation of about 15 projects, a register of the complete oeuvre, as well as an introductory essay

Adolf Loos, 1870-1933 : architect, cultural critic, dandy by August Sarnitz( Book )

18 editions published between 2003 and 2017 in 3 languages and held by 292 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Widely regarded as one of the most significant prophets of modern architecture, Adolf Loos (1870-1933) was a star in his own time, known throughout Vienna as an outspoken, audacious dandy and moralist who defied the establishment. His work not only represented the beginning of modernism, with its stark, unornamented style, but also revolutionized architecture by introducing the concept of "spatial plan" architecture, which allowed for economizing space by designating rooms' sizes and heights based on their purposes. Loos also published numerous essays during his lifetime, the most notable of which is the oft-misunderstood "Ornament and Crime."
Architektur Wien - 700 Bauten by Renate Banik-Schweitzer( Book )

16 editions published between 1997 and 2008 in German and Undetermined and held by 186 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

August Sarnitz begleitet mit seinen bei Springer erschienenen Architekturführern die Architektur Wiens seit über einem Jahrzehnt. Der Guide fasst exemplarisch 700 Bauten, die in Wien zu besichtigen sind, aus allen Epochen und Baustilen zusammen. Einen Schwerpunkt setzen dabei - nicht zuletzt auch aus Erhaltungsgründen - die Bauten und die Stadtplanung der jüngeren Vergangenheit, die Wien ein modernes Gesicht verpassen. Der Baugeschichte sowie der durchaus kontrovers debattierten Stadterneuerung wird mit Essays namhafter Spezialisten und Kritiker Rechnung getragen, welche dem Leser einen differenzierten Blick auf die exemplarische Bautensammlung des Guides ermöglichen und planerische Zusammenhänge sichtbar machen. Die lexikalische Qualität der Indices zu Chronologie und Architekten, die Essays zu Baustilen, Geschichte und Stadtplanung sowie das Kartenmaterial machen den Wien-Guide zu einem unverzichtbaren Vademecum sowohl für Touristen als auch für alle an Architektur Interessierte

4 editions published between 2005 and 2018 in German and held by 161 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Josef Hoffmann, 1870-1956 : in the realm of beauty by August Sarnitz( Book )

14 editions published between 2007 and 2017 in English and Spanish and held by 158 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The influence of the Austrian architect and designer Josef Hoffmann (1870-1956) is extraordinary. For a period of over 60 years he kept up an aesthetic dialog with Modernism, the International Style, and Art Deco. Before being rediscovered in the 1980s by the Post-Modernists, his work was nearly forgotten but now his importance is unquestioned
Vienna : new architecture, 1975-2005 by August Sarnitz( Book )

11 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 155 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ernst Plischke : the complete works : modern architecture for the New World by August Sarnitz( Book )

14 editions published in 2004 in English and German and held by 123 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume is the first comprehensive survey on the Austrian-born architect Ernst Plischke (1903-1992), a key figure in Modernist architecture. His admiration for Le Corbusier is reflected in both his private housing and urban projects, and there are stylistic affinities to the work of Rudolf Schindler and Alvar Aalto. After emigrating to New Zealand in 1939, Plischke retained the characteristic traits of his work, such as his use of intense colour and variety of materials." "This monograph showcases the astounding scope of Plischke's accomplishments: his private residences and apartment buildings, high-rises and churches, furniture designs and plans for entire towns. Numerous drawings, blueprints and colour photographs along with informative essays explore Plischke's key role in bringing European Modernist architecture to New Zealand."--Jacket

Museums-Positionen : Bauten und Projekte in Österreich by August Sarnitz( Book )

10 editions published in 1992 in German and held by 96 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The museum as a cultural machine, always trying to move with, between and beyond the times, caught between the esotericism of scholarship and mega-exhibitions for a mass public; no institution has aroused quite so much excitement, confusion and surprise in recent years as the cultural machine of the MUSEUM. The aim of the exhibition MUSEUM POSITIONS is to mediate, demonstrate and stimulate: to mediate the Austrian achievements in this field, to demonstrate to a foreign audience new concepts which are being developed in Austria; and to stimulate people to take part in an international discussion about the arts. 10 museums and 10 positions will be presented, with the aid of models, photographs and drawings. Museum directors, museum specialists, architects and architectural critics have been invited to express their views. The exhibition has been conceived as a forum for those museums which are at present undergoing radical change and restructuring, and will document various aspects of the work in progress. Over the next few years, the Austrian museum scene will experience its most significant upswing since the Gründerzeit of the last century, with new museum buildings, alterations to existing buildings and even extensions to museums. A clear indication of this radical change in the museum seen both in the international museums-boom and in publications-is provided by the "retrospectives" and "special shows" about great subjects in art history, whether devoted to individual artists or to more general themes. By contrast, the museum itself is seldom regarded as an object of study in its own right- and is usually neglected completely. In the fine arts, the place where cultural events are held has to a large extent disappeared an element of art appreciation. Yet as "art packaging", as a metaphor for the art business, the museum ought to be regarded as least as relevant as the contents themselves. This exhibition about Austrian museums aims to be more than just a survey of ten current projects of particular interest: it aims to investigate the ability of public institutions to act on behalf of the arts and support the public cause-the res publica- as a political, cultural and architectural phenomenon. -- from dust jacket

Otto Wagner, 1841-1918 : forerunner of modern architecture by August Sarnitz( Book )

14 editions published between 2005 and 2018 in English and held by 82 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"At once a realist and a visionary, an architect and a builder, Otto Wagner innovated a new era in building-making. Born in Vienna, the visionary architect made his presence felt—he pioneered the use of materials like glass, steel, and aluminum, in a ceaseless experimentation with form that would come to redefine Viennese structural identity, and urban architecture altogether"--

Relationen : Texte und Bauten by August Sarnitz( )

8 editions published in 2018 in German and Undetermined and held by 69 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Der Titel des Buches setzt die beiden Tätigkeitsfelder, das Bauen und das Schreiben, des Architekten, Architekturhistorikers und Theoretikers August Sarnitz in eine wechselseitige Beziehung: im Schreiben entsteht der Kontext zum Gebauten ? so wie das Bauen im Kontext des Geschriebenen steht. Eben diesem Wechselspiel folgt auch der Aufbau des Buches: einem Essay über Architekturgeschichte und Big Data folgen drei Aufsätze zu den Themen Städtebau, sozialem Wohnbau und der Fiktion des Raums. Auch einige prägende Wiener Architekten treten auf: Frank, Kiesler, Hollein und Prix. Die Themen Wohnen, Design und Möbel werden mit eigenen Projekten von Sarnitz illustriert; am Ende widmet sich das Buch der Architekturfotografie, die für Sarnitz als Publizisten große Bedeutung hat
