Architecture : art by Philip Jodidio( Book )

14 editions published in 2005 in English and German and held by 655 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The relationship between art and architecture, though rooted in history, is at the heart of today's creativity. Artists have all but abandoned traditional concepts and forms, seeking to renew their vision and their relevance in the contemporary world. Many of them are attracted to the spatial presence of architecture. Simultaneously, contemporary architects, setting aside the precepts and influences of modernism, have come closer to artistic expression. The barriers between art and architecture are coming down, and this illustrated book looks at the ways in which this historic meeting of disciplines is profoundly changing contemporary culture."--Jacket

I.M. Pei : complete works by Philip Jodidio( Book )

8 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 484 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"When I.M. Pei - one of the world's most celebrated architects and a master of light, space, and geometry - was awarded the Pritzker Prize in 1983, the jury said he had "given this century some of its most beautiful interior spaces and exterior forms." I.M. Pei: Complete Works attests to this statement by showcasing Pei's transcendent, sculptural forms from more than 50 years of work, using his best known and widely admired Louvre project as a focal point." "Often working with a palette of stone, concrete, glass, and steel, Pei has taken his vision of modern architecture across the globe with commissions in locations as diverse as Qatar, China, Luxembourg, Japan, and Germany. Meanwhile, major projects such as the JFK Library in Boston and the East Building of the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C. have made him a household name in the United States. This volume honors Pei's tremendous influence by exclusively discussing the projects that he - rather than any of his partners - had direct, personal interest in. Insightful texts by renowned writers Philip Jodidio, Janet Adams Strong, and Carter Wiseman insure that this first-ever monographic study of the master architect will be an invaluable source for years to come"--

Valode & Pistre Architects by Philip Jodidio( )

23 editions published in 2006 in English and French and held by 451 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Valode & Pistre architects is an international architectural design firm having expertise as well in the fields of urban design, interior design and engineer services. Founded in 1980 by the current managing partners and long time friends, Denis Valode and Jean Pistre, the firm entered upon a new phase of its career in 1992, when the architects received the Equerre d'argent prize of the journal Le Moniteur for the L'Oreal corporate headquarters outside Paris. Their predominantly large-scale projects are distinguished by their high degree of diversity. For some years, Valode & Pistre have not only been practicing in France, their native country, but also in Germany, Italy, Great Britain, Russia, Mexico, China, and elsewhere." "The firm's philosophy is built around progressively acquired principles distilled from specific project experience. For Denis Valode and Jean Pistre, an architectural project is a social act for both client and user, an act based upon original research and reflection, an act of creation in response to a specific program and site."--Jacket

26 editions published between 1999 and 2003 in 6 languages and held by 434 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Contemporary Japanese architects by Dirk Meyhöfer( Book )

42 editions published between 1993 and 1998 in 5 languages and held by 427 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In both diversity and quality, the architecture of present-day Japan can be classed as foremost in the world. This has not always been the case. Due to favorable economic circumstances and the coexistence of two generations of architects, it achieved a breakthrough on the international scene during the Eighties. This pluralistic architectural landscape, influenced by both tradition and a process of constant renewal, has a great many surprises in store for the Western eye." --

Architecture now! Houses = Architektur heute! Häuser = L'architecture d'aujourd'hui! Maisons by Philip Jodidio( Book )

55 editions published between 2009 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 407 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is about castles and caves. Though there may be distinctions between a house and a home, the fact remains that the fundamental ideas of shelter, life and death are intertwined with the architecture of the commonplace in every dwelling, from cave to castle. The house can be a measure of civilization, wealth or, indeed, intelligence; it is a barometer of existence. Depending on the architect and the client, a house can be at the very cutting edge of architecture, casting aside notions of the past in search of a new paradigm; it can accept the rules of urbanism while standing them on their head. It can float in the air or emerge from the depths of the earth. Where factors of cost may limit civic architecture to tried and trusted methods, some houses break all the rules, and help architecture to move forward. This book is not about decoration, nor is it a practical guide to building one's own house. It is, rather, a search that may lead the willing reader from Patagonia in Argentina to the cliffs of Dover Heights, Australia to see some of the most remarkable houses built in the past five years."--Publisher description
Sir Norman Foster by Philip Jodidio( Book )

33 editions published between 1977 and 2001 in 6 languages and held by 404 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Décrit un principe que Foster manie avec une rare virtuosité, à savoir "retourner" un intérieur, en mettant à nu la structure portante et les unités fonctionnelles du bâtiment. Le résultat, fascinant et fragile, n'est pas sans évoquer la complexité d'une machinerie, contrebalancée par l'élégance d'éléments high-tech, qui évitent à l'ensemble tout caractère monumental

Building a new millennium = Bauen im neuen Jahrtausend = Construire un nouveau millénaire by Philip Jodidio( Book )

23 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in 4 languages and held by 327 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"With more than eighty projects by over fifty internationally renowned architects [including brief biographical sketches], this volume presents the latest developments and styles in architecture at the turn of a new millennium as it is reflected in churches, fashion boutiques, movie theaters or media labs. Ranging from experimental housing to large international airports, universities and museums, projects by Norman Foster, Renzo Piano or Richard Meier are contrasted with structures like Shigeru Ban's 'Wall-less house," Daniel Libeskind's recently completed Jewish Museum, or the 'Pharmacy' restaurant by Damien Hirst and Mike Rundell. Together, these buildings constitute a dynamic vision of the 21st century"--Inside flap of front cover
Ando : complete works by Philip Jodidio( Book )

34 editions published between 2007 and 2012 in 5 languages and held by 325 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Philippe Starck describes him as a "mystic in a country which is no longer mystic." Philip Drew calls his buildings "land art" that "struggle to emerge from the earth." He is the only architect to have won the discipline's four most prestigious prizes: the Pritzker, Carlsberg, Praemium Imperiale, and Kyoto Prize. His name is Tadao Ando, and he is one of the greatest living architects. Combining influences from Japanese tradition with the best of Modernism, Ando has developed a completely unique building aesthetic that makes use of concrete, wood, water, light, space, and nature in a way that has never been witnessed in architecture. His designs include award-winning private homes, churches, museums, apartment complexes, and cultural spaces throughout Japan, as well as in France, Italy, Spain, and the USA. This book, created at the height of Ando's illustrious career, and thoroughly updated for this new 2010 edition, presents his complete works to date
