Most widely held works by Jane Pavitt
Cold War modern : design 1945-1970 by Victoria and Albert Museum( Book )

19 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 686 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Modern life after 1945 seemed to promise both utopia and catastrophe. Both could, it seemed, be achieved at the 'push of a button'. Published to accompany a major V & A exhibition, 'Cold War Modern: Design 1945-1970', this book explores how the politics of the Cold War shaped architecture and design. Reassessing 'classic' designs and introducing many little-known objects."--Jacket
Postmodernism : style and subversion, 1970-1990 by Victoria and Albert Museum( Book )

15 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 683 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The radical ideas associated with postmodernism swept through the arts in the 1970s, but have always been hard to summarise. This book presents the movement as not merely an aesthetic vocabulary, but also as a subversive attitude - a new way of looking at the world
Brand.new by Jane Pavitt( Book )

15 editions published in 2000 in English and Undetermined and held by 487 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fear and fashion in the Cold War by Jane Pavitt( Book )

13 editions published in 2008 in English and Spanish and held by 263 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book explores Cold War fashion in all its aspects, ranging from innovations in materials to the cybernetic visions of the 1960s, from the bikini to the spacesuit, vinyl radiation suits to high-tech jewellery, Paco Rabanne to Barbarella. Set in the context of art, film, science and design, Pavitt explores how the image of the body was shaped by Cold War concerns - atomic anxieties, the space race, technological developments and the first forays into 'hyper-reality.' With a stunning selection of images alongside military, political and scientific research, the book shows how counter-cultural theories and experiences in the later 1960s shaped an alternative view of the 'Cold War Body'."--Jacket
Brilliant : lights & lighting by Jane Pavitt( Book )

10 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 210 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Brilliant: Lights & Lighting explores the exciting range of new lighting forms, fabrics and technologies from the archetypal domestic lamp to innovations in lighted clothing. Covering products from the one-off to the mass-produced, it also charts crossovers in design practice, incorporating textiles, fashion and ceramics as well as product design and new technological developments. With over 90 colour illustrations, and based on conversations with designers, this book is essential reading for anyone interested or involved in contemporary design."--Jacket
Prague by Jane Pavitt( Book )

8 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 203 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The extraordinary architectural heritage of Prague has meant that the city is now regarded as one of the artistic and cultural capitals of the world. The turbulent history of the city is reflected in the range and diversity of buildings discussed in this book: from its baroque churches and palaces to the state offices and housing projects of the post-1945 communist era. The guide covers all aspects of Prague's development since its early years, through its periods of both power and decline from the 15th to the 20th century. Particular attention is paid to the architecture of the last 100 years. Since the democratic revolution of 1989, the city has once again become a place of pilgrimage for those interested in architecture and design. This book covers some of the most recent architectural projects to be planned in the city

Brand. new by Jane Pavitt( Book )

2 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The idea of the brand is central to contemporary society. Businesses, personalities, political parties and even nations 're-brand' themselves in order to influence public opinion. With the emergence of e-commerce, the status and value of well-established brands - many of which have been with us for a century or more - may well be challenged by a host of new brands. Today's brands promote themselves as more than just a logo, a slogan or a distinctive package, they promise to deliver a host of emotional benefits too. But what do we really think of the brands we buy?

Superstructure : the making of the Sainsbury Centre by Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts( Book )

3 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 2018 the Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts will celebrate its 40th anniversary. Opened in 1978, the building was both Sir Norman Foster's first public commission and a new paradigm in museum design. The Sainsbury Centre forms part of one of the last, great phases of modernism, combining structural integrity and precision engineering with a radical approach to the integration of services. The publication will be released to coincide with the opening of Superstructures: The New Architecture 1960-1990, a major exhibition that will situate the Sainsbury Centre within its historical context and will explore architecture's fascination with new technology, lightweight structures, building techniques and engineering solutions that emerged in the post-war decades, eventually redefining the spaces of culture, work, travel and living.0Contents of the book include essays by Jane Pavitt and Abraham Thomas, curators of the show, and an interview to Sir Norman Foster conducted by Jonathan Glancey. An extensive photo essay will feature a range of unpublished photographs of the building under construction
