México 90's : una arquitectura contemporánea = a contemporary architecture by Miquel Adrià( Book )

6 editions published in 1996 in Spanish and held by 179 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Mexico, as in other places and often in other times, the identification of a way of working, a style, a "correct" attitude with a tradition, as a stimulus to nationalist identification, has tended to channel creativity in the direction of the stereotype and the devalued imitation of the model being imitated, frustrating the expression of a rich and complex country fully capable of assimilating the current globalization of this end of the millennium." "The selection featured in this book, which like all those of this kind is somewhat subjective and arbitrary, sets out to attend exclusively to the quality of the architecture, irrespective of whatever movements or schools the individual architects may, openly or covertly, belong to. Accordingly, the selection features works by figures of established national and international prestige alongside young and relatively unknown architects. In stylistic and formal terms, too, both this book and the realities of Mexican architecture are marked by currents as diverse as the volumetric expressionism of Teodoro Gonzalez de Leon and the abstractions from vernacular elements of Ricardo Legorreta, in contrast to the work of Enrique Norten, close to the latest international movements." "Typologically, this book ranges from conversions within historic urban centres, by way of private houses, to new buildings of various types"--Jacket

White mountain : architecture in Chile = Blanca montaña : arquitectura en Chile by Miquel Adrià( Book )

12 editions published in 2013 in English and Spanish and held by 130 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

After decades on the periphery of Western architectural consciousness, Chile has recently come to be recognized as an important hub for innovation in architecture. Its construction boom can be partly credited to its stable economy and thriving academic culture. Painstakingly assembled over a three-year period of intensive research, White Mountain: Recent Architecture in Chile looks at more than 120 works by 60 architects and architectural firms spanning several generations, selected by the celebrated Catalan architect and director of the Arquine Group, Miquel Adrià. "Chilean architecture is the most interesting and original in all of the American continent," Adrià declares in his introduction to this pioneering overview. Projects by José Cruz Ovalle, Smiljan Radic, Mathias Klotz, Felipe Assadi + Francisca Pulido, Izquierdo Lehmann Arquitectos, Alejandro Aravena, Juan Agustín Soza, Teresa Moller, Pezo von Ellrichshausen Arquitectos, Germán del Sol, FAR, Marc Frohn & Mario Rojas and Elemental are included. Each of the projects is supplemented by relevant technical data, floor plans and photographs. Essays by the distinguished professors and researchers Horacio Torrent and Pablo Allard contextualize the emergence of Chilean architecture over the past several decades
Biblioteca Vasconcelos = Vasconcelos Library by Isabel Garcés( Book )

10 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in Spanish and held by 124 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La presente edición gráficamente documenta el diseño, construcción e instalación de la biblioteca pública principal Biblioteca de México "José Vasconcelos" ubicada en la ciudad de Mexico. En el año 2001 el proyecto de transformación de la Biblioteca de México proponía tres acciones principales: la restauración del edificio de La Ciudadela, la construcción de un edificio moderno y más grande y el establecimiento de intercambio conectado entre las bibliotecas públicas de México, donde la nueva biblioteca sería el nodo central de una red nacional. La nueva biblioteca que incluye un jardín botánico circundante era un proyecto del arquitecto Alberto Kalach y fue construida adyacente a la estación de ferrocarril Buenavista en el centro histórico de la ciudad. Una sección final sigue el proceso artístico y técnico del artista Gabriel Orozco y su equipo de trabajo para la construcción del proyecto MátrixMóvil (Matriz Móvil), una instalación suspendida de grafito de un esquéleto de ballena terminado en el 2006 que cuelga en el área central de la biblioteca

Este libro recoge obras y proyectos de los últimos años de la carrera del arquitecto mexicano Alberto Kalach, haciendo énfasis especial en los primeros pasos de cada uno de ellos.

Archetonic : Jacobo Micha Mizrahi by Jacobo Micha Mizrahi( Book )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 66 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of Mexico's vanguard of emerging architects is Jacobo Micha, and his firm Archetonic. This first comprehensive monograph of Micha's residential work: condominiums in the stylish, upscale Condesa and Polanco districts of Mexico City is stunningly designed and photographed. Condos are particularly demanding for the designer, says the introductory essay, because they must work as a kind of urban acupuncture in the densely built city, and appeal to a rising middle class in search of a place with all the amenities and services necessary to live on a human, pedestrian scale in the metropolis
Alberto Rimoch arquitecto by Alberto Rimoch( Book )

4 editions published in 2011 in Spanish and held by 65 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Born in 1949, architect Alberto Rimoch is a transitional figure in Mexican architecture between the generation of Barragán and Lagoretta, and the new guys (like Isaac Broid, who writes one of the fine appreciations in this book) who are forging the next path. As Alberto Ruy Sánchez writes here, Rimoch's work has "the common sense of a warm wind." Specializing in apartment complexes and commercial buildings over the last 30 years, Rimoch's designs are modernist in style with a big helping of imagination and the colors and materials of the Mexican vernacular. This volume is a survey of ten of his most recent projects in the upscale Mexico City neighborhoods of Roma and Condesa

Mario Schjetnan (Grupo de Diseño Urbano) concibe su trabajo en una forma integral, construcción que conforman la trilogía inseparable de la arquitectura: la arquitectura del paisaje y diseño urbano.

Su objetivo es realizar obras o intervenciones en el paisaje con un sentido de la excelencia en el diseño, siempre con el objetivo de mejorar la calidad de vida de los que viven en ellas, de viaje o disfrutar de sus espacios. Este libro muestra algunos de sus logros recientes, la mayoría de todos ellos construidos en el siglo 21 y en su mayoría construidas en los espacios públicos, que sirven a la comunidad, sino también otro carácter arquitectónico en desarrollos privados, con una escala semi-pública

Mario Pani : la construcción de la modernidad by Miquel Adrià( Book )

8 editions published in 2005 in Spanish and held by 57 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Introducir comentario Mario Pani, uno de los arquitectos más destacados de mediados del siglo XX, fue capaz de conjugar la arquitectura moderna con sus relaciones con el poder. Formado en París y procedente de una notable familia mexicana, llevó a México las enseñanzas de Le Corbusier y las adaptó a las necesidades locales. Los conjuntos habitacionales y residenciales Miguel Aleman y Tlatelolco-Nonoalco en la Ciudad de México, el club de playa y el aeropuerto en Acapulco, así como el plan director de Ciudad universitaria y el edificio de Rectoría, son algunos destacados ejemplos de su prolífica carrera. También fue un visionario e infatigable urbanista, capaz de seducir a todas las clases sociales y políticas para llevar a cabo sus proyectos. A su vez, Pani fue un notable agitador cultural desde la revista Arquitectura-Mexico, que dirigió durante mas de cuarenta años. Con la perspectiva del tiempo, esta nueva visita a su trabajo, excelentemente documentado por el fotógrafo Guillermo Zamora, resulta de gran interés tanto por la belleza de las imágenes y de su arquitectura como por el significado estratégico que supone rescatar de nuevo su obra
