At the end of the century : one hundred years of architecture by Museum of contemporary art (Los Angeles)( Book )

18 editions published in 1998 in English and Italian and held by 976 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The most comprehensive and up-to-date survey of twentieth-century architecture ever published, this volume presents a global perspective on some of the most significant works, ideas, and directions over the past one hundred years. With more than three hundred illustrations covering the major landmarks and architects of the century, it will appeal to a wide audience. Exploring cutting-edge ideas, the book also offers the sophisticated professional reader fresh viewpoints."--BOOK JACKET. "The broad focus of the book is the complex relationship between innovation and tradition and the profound impact of technology on architecture and urbanism throughout the twentieth century. It explores the house and the city; the grand international movements and regional vernacular styles; the forces that built this century and thoughts about where the next one will take us."--Jacket
Ai Weiwei : according to what?( Book )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 628 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A leading figure among the Chinese artists of his generation, Ai Weiwei creates art that transcends East/West cultural dualities and focuses on fundamental artistic, cultural, and social questions. Published in conjunction with the first North American survey of this celebrated and provocative artist's career, this volume offers a valuable introduction to the full spectrum of Ai Weiwei's work--from photographs and sculpture to documentation of several of his most well-known projects, including his collaboration with Herzog & de Meuron on the "bird's nest" stadium for the 2008 Beijing Olympics. More recent works, several made specifically for this tour, address his ongoing investigation of the aftermath of the Sichuan earthquake, as well as his responses to his detention and continual surveillance by Chinese authorities. The book contains essays by exhibition curator Mami Kataoka, art historian Charles Merewether, and an interview between the Hirshhorn's chief curator Kerry Brougher and the artist
Symphony : Frank Gehry's Walt Disney Concert Hall by Frank O Gehry( Book )

13 editions published between 2003 and 2009 in English and held by 620 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Symphony, which includes an introduction by Gehry, traces the history of the Concert Hall from its inception through completion in four illuminating essays and stunning photographs by acclaimed architectural photographer Grant Mudford. Authors Richard Koshalek and Dana Hutt describe the dramatic journey beginning with an unprecedented gift of $50 million in 1988 from the late Lillian Disney, widow of Walt Disney, for a new home for the Los Angeles Philharmonic, to final construction of the building. Carol McMichael Reese explores the planning of the Concert Hall in relation to a century of efforts to make Downtown Los Angeles the economic and cultural hub of the city. Architecture critic and writer Michael Webb eloquently describes the artistry and complex engineering of this unique structure. And Esa-Pekka Salonen, music director for the Los Angeles Philharmonic, recounts his first impressions of Gehry and the architectural models for the new building in an essay that also defines what makes a great orchestra and a world-class concert hall." "Attracting visitors from around the world, Walt Disney Concert Hall is one of the most important and innovative buildings of recent years. Symphony brings its story to all those interested in modern architecture and the vitality of classical music."--Jacket
