Frank Gehry by Frank Gehry( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 400 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Arranged chronologically, this book follows the arc of Gehry's later career, during which he has focused mainly on public and cultural facilities. The book explores how Gehry has overcome technological setbacks and aesthetic backlash, never wavering from his vision. It examines his work in the context of the urban environment, showing how Gehry continually strives to make cities "less boring" and to create urban buildings that echo their surroundings. The buildings profiled here - including the Vitra International Furniture Manufacturing Facility and Design Museum in Switzerland, Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles, the 8 Spruce Street Skyscraper (Beekman Tower) in New York, and the Fondation Louis Vuitton - are represented in dazzling colour photographs as well as preparatory drawing, plans and models. From his early years working within the L.A. Art Scene, to his Pritzker-winning stardom, to his current fascination with the application of computer-aided-design in such areas as cancer research, Frank Gehry, now in his ninth decade, continues to surprise and inspire the public. This informative, fascinating volume is a must-have for his ardent fans and anyone interested in architecture."--Publisher's description

Ross Lovegrove : convergence by Ross Lovegrove( Book )

9 editions published in 2017 in French and English and held by 99 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ross Lovegrove is an internationally renowned designer and visionary, whose works are celebrated as the new aesthetic expression of the twenty-first century. His industrial design is inspired by the logic and beauty of nature. It connects technology and innovative production methods with new materials and an intelligent, organic vocabulary of forms, in an inimitable way. By carefully selecting, combining, and composing these elements he succeeds in inventing a completely unique language of his own. A very human vision and a sustainable, inventive approach form the basis for all of his work. His philosophy is rooted in elegant functionalism. Despite all of the imaginativeness and pleasure in experimentation revealed in his body of work, he considers himself a thinker whose interest is not in the pretentious, but in the development of sensible, useful things. At the heart of this monograph, therefore, is a lasting combination of high standards and creativity, design and nature, and the latest technologies from the fields of physics, biology, anthropology, and ecology.0Also available in French, ISBN .00Exhibition: Centre Pompidou, Paris, France (12.4. - 3.7.2017)

Naturaliser l'architecture = Naturalizing architecture by Marie-Ange Brayer( Book )

9 editions published in 2013 in 3 languages and held by 79 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Henceforth architecture is involved in 'matter,' which is turning out to be both effective and capable of doing away with the distinction between nature and artifice, ushering in a new order of hybridization. How are we to think about this new ecology of design, a condition that is as architectural as it is political and cultural, within which nature and architecture merge? Structured in four parts (Rustic, Geometric, Organic and Ecophysics), this is the question that this 2013 publication intend to answer with the authors and the projects of forty international architects, artists and designers currently at the forefront of scientific innovation"--Publisher's website

4 editions published in 2017 in French and held by 42 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

À l'occasion de l'exposition Imprimer le monde - du 15 mars au 19 juin 2017- les Éditions HYX et les Éditions du Centre Pompidou, interrogent, avec Imprimer le monde l'émergence dans la création artistique de ce nouvel artefact numérique imprimé en 3D. Les technologies numériques ont bouleversé la conception et la fabrication des objets, transformant la pratique des designers des architectes et des artistes. Quel est le statut de l'auteur à l'ère de la production de ces objets "non standards", à la fois uniques et produits industriellement ? Quel est le statut de cet objet "imprimé" en 3D, tout à la fois objet du quotidien, objet technologique, œuvre d'art, objet de design, prototype d'architecture ? De l'échelle du micro (imprimer des cellules vivantes) à celle du macro (imprimer des architectures à l'échelle 1:1), du visible à l'infra-visible, la fabrication additive soulève de multiples questions
Privacy and publicity : modern architecture as mass media by Beatriz Colomina( Book )

4 editions published in 1998 in French and held by 41 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With modernity, the site of architectural production literally moved from the street into photographs, films, publications, and exhibitions - a displacement that presupposes a new sense of space, one defined by images rather than walls. This age of publicity corresponds to a transformation in the status of the private, Colomina argues; modernity is actually the publicity of the private. Modern architecture renegotiates the traditional relationship between public and private in a way that profoundly alters the experience of space
