Your private sky : R. Buckminster Fuller, the art of design science by R. Buckminster Fuller( Book )

24 editions published in 1999 in 4 languages and held by 763 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As an engineer, a poet; as a designer, a philosopher; as a researcher, an artist - R. Buckminster Fuller established new standards. Convinced that specialists usually create more problems than they solve, he developed his concepts for a vision of the whole. In addition, in his unique way Fuller inter-linked the fields of architecture, geometry, engineering, natural science and anthropology. This book provides a highly multi-faceted insight into Fuller's world, also showing many of its up-to-now unknown sides."--BOOK JACKET
As found : the discovery of the ordinary by Claude Lichtenstein( Book )

15 editions published in 2001 in English and German and held by 260 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Works of art were created in the England of the 50s and 60s which are of extraordniary topicality today. This applies particularly to the Independent Group which included artists, photographers as well as architects. Its members strove to achieve an authenticity close to the grass roots of life, to discover the essence of the everyday, to arouse a sensitivity to life in the raw as against a touched-up version of reality, to bring out both its hardships and its charm. The book is about architecture and art and photography. It seeks rather to show the unmediated impact and direct appeal of a refractory aesthetics
Your private sky : discourse by R. Buckminster Fuller( Book )

18 editions published between 1999 and 2001 in English and German and held by 249 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this companion volume to the "visual reader" Your Private Sky: R. Buckminster Fuller; The Art of Design Science Fuller is heard primarily through his own writings, in which he expounded his world view and his ideas about design. Essays by other authors supplement and augment the selection of Fuller texts. The book collects important unpublished works and key texts that are not easily available, choosing from all phases of his creativity, and places them in the context of an art and science of design, in the sense implied in Fuller's term design science. The selection of texts provides access to Fuller's central concepts at the point they were first developed and presents them in their earliest valid formulation. The book thus affords a genuine look into his workshop of ideas. The volume includes texts that have become classics in the philosophy of design: Fuller's first essay, "Lightful Houses," the lecture on his Dymaxion House, the first papers on synergetic geometry, and the tensegrity essay. The book also includes a facsimile of his previously unpublished basic text on the construction of geodesic domes, "Noah's Ark #2.""--Jacket

Playfully rigid : Swiss architecture, graphic design, product design 1950-2006 by Claude Lichtenstein( Book )

10 editions published in 2007 in English and German and held by 189 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Necessity is the mother of invention, but therein lies a dilemma: What must a society do if it wishes to remain inventive, yet defines itself in terms of prosperity, not need? It must take a particular stance toward prosperity, even toward excess. Clarity and a systematic approach are parts of this stance, as is the designer's ability to endow objects with "esprit". Ingenuity and clarity are the two poles of a field of tension that produces an impression of ease and authority. This book is a collection of Swiss architecture, graphics, and design from 1950 to the present, viewed in terms of this creative polarity."--BOOK JACKET

Far vedere l'aria = Making air visible : a visual reader on Bruno Munari by Bruno Munari( Book )

11 editions published in 2000 in 4 languages and held by 152 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Bruno Munari (1907-98) was an impassioned collector of the visible, of differences in appearances. With single-minded purpose, he explored the relationship between simple objects and our sensual transformation of them. Born in Milan, Munari was a prominent figure in Italy and Europe for decades as an artist, graphic designer, author of children's books, and publicist. Children were his mentors; he was fascinated with the forces that enable us to transform the natural impulses of the child into effective design. This comprehensive presentation of Bruno Munari's oeuvre will delight art directors, graphic artists, product designers, architects, and all lovers of playful design."--Jacket
