38 editions published between 2005 and 2016 in English and Japanese and held by 1,371 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

He also examines the compelling currents of French rationalist and British empiricist thought, radical reformation of the theory during the Enlightenment, the intellectual ambitions and historicist debates of the nineteenth century, and the distinctive varieties of modern theory in the twentieth century up to the profound social upheaval of the 1960s. Modern Architectural Theory challenges many assumptions about architectural modernism and uncovers many new dimensions of the debates about modernism."--Jacket

The architect's brain : neuroscience, creativity, and architecture by Harry Francis Mallgrave( Book )

23 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in English and held by 515 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In part one of The Architect's Brain, [author] sketches various moments of architectural thought over the last 500 years as a cognitive manifestation of philosophical, psychological and physiological theory. In part two, he repositions this question from the perspective of the remarkable insights of contemporary neurosciences, particularly as they have advanced within the last decade. What emerges is a surprising neurological justification for some very timeless architectural ideas, from the multisensory nature of the architectural experience to the essential relationship of ambiguity and metaphor to creative thinking."--Jacket
An Introduction to Architectural Theory : 1968 to the Present by Harry Francis Mallgrave( Book )

24 editions published between 2011 and 2018 in English and Japanese and held by 482 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A sharp and lively text that covers issues in depth but not to the point that they become inaccessible to beginning students, An Introduction to Architectural Theory is the first narrative history of this period, charting the veritable revolution in architectural thinking that has taken place, as well as the implications of this intellectual upheaval. The first comprehensive and critical history of architectural theory over the last forty years surveys the intellectual history of architecture since 1968, including criticisms of high modernism, the rise of postmodern and poststructural theory, critical regionalism and tectonics Offers a comprehensive overview of the significant changes that architectural thinking has undergone in the past fifteen years Includes an analysis of where architecture stands and where it will likely move in the coming years"--

3 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and held by 419 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

he describes as a colossus of the nineteenth century. Mallgrave weaves an engrossing saga of Semper's troubled youth, his fascination with the July Revolution in France, and his daring if somewhat imprudent voyage to a Greece wracked by civil war. He speaks of Semper's glorious design for the Dresden Hoftheater in the mid-1830s, his influence on Richard Wagner, and his plummeting fortunes after the political unrest of 1848-49. Mallgrave traces Semper's slow but
Empathy, form, and space : problems in German aesthetics, 1873-1893 by Robert Vischer( Book )

16 editions published between 1993 and 2000 in English and held by 375 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Written in the last three decades of the nineteenth century - at a time when the proliferation of knowledge and dramatic social and economic change had combined to force the issue of art's exhaustion of its traditional historical themes - these seminal writings helped to redesign the theoretical foundation of modern artistic practice. The earlier metaphysical problem of how we structure and understand form and space in the natural world in essence gave way to the aesthetic problem of how we might appreciate and actually exploit pure form and pure space artistically, in painting, sculpture, music, and architecture
Style in the technical and tectonic arts, or, Practical aesthetics by Gottfried Semper( Book )

3 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 270 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The enduring influence of the architect Gottfried Semper (1803-79) derives less from his monumental buildings in Dresden, Zurich, and Vienna than from his Style in the Technical and Tectonic Arts (1860-63). Semper's landmark survey of the motives giving rise to the technical arts (textiles, ceramics, carpentry, masonry) explores the symbolic and material preconditions of style. An extended inquiry into the inner principles of artistic form, this work radically altered the intellectual field for aesthetics and art history and stands as a vital document in the consolidation of modern architectural theory."--Jacket
Architecture and embodiment : the implications of the new sciences and humanities for design by Harry Francis Mallgrave( Book )

15 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 219 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In recent years we have seen a number of dramatic discoveries within the biological and related sciences. Traditional arguments such as "nature versus nuture" are rapidly disappearing because of the realisation that just as we are affecting our enviornments, so too do these altered environments restructure our cognitive abilities and outlooks
Gottfried Semper : architect of the nineteenth century by Harry Francis Mallgrave( Book )

12 editions published in 1996 in English and German and held by 215 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"During an adventurous life, the German architect, scholar, and political revolutionary Gottfried Semper (1803-79) experienced early fame, political exile from his homeland, international prominence, and the exhilaration of seeing European architecture transformed by his influential body of ideas. In this engrossing biography of Semper - the first written on this architect - Harry Mallgrave presents a comprehensive account of the life, buildings, and writings of the man he describes as a colossus of the nineteenth century. Mallgrave weaves an engrossing saga of Semper's troubled youth, his fascination with the July Revolution in France, and his daring if somewhat imprudent voyage to a Greece wracked by civil war. He speaks of Semper's glorious design for the Dresden Hoftheater in the mid-1830s, his influence on Richard Wagner, and his plummeting fortunes after the political unrest of 1848-49. Mallgrave traces Semper's slow but determined literary resurrection that culminated with the publication of his epoch-making book on style; he follows his artistic resurrection with a monumental practice in Zurich and Vienna. By the time of his spectacular design for the second Dresden Hoftheater in the early 1870s, Semper was without architectural peer in the German-speaking countries and his ideas had pushed European architecture to the brink of Modernism."--BOOK JACKET

The four elements of architecture and other writings by Gottfried Semper( Book )

11 editions published between 1989 and 2010 in English and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gottfied Semper was the most important German theorist of the nineteenth century. From his first published essay on Greek polychromy in 1834 to his final lecture on the origin of architectural styles in 1869, Semper persistently endeavoured to fashion a comprehensive architectural theory explaining the meaning and transformational nature of architectural form. The breadth and richness of his ideas, both applauded and opposed at the turn of the twentieth century, proved enormously influential in the development of modern theory. Originally published in 1989, this book provides an English translation of a number of Semper's published writings. The introduction seeks to trace the course of Semper's theoretical development over thirty-five years. Semper's ideas, like those of his contemporaries, John Ruskin and Eugene Viollet-le-Duc, had enormous influence on the genesis of modern architectural theory and will appeal to both architectural historians and architects.
