Architecture : art by Philip Jodidio( Book )

12 editions published in 2005 in English and German and held by 641 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

Wood architecture now! = HOLZ - Architektur heute! = L'architecture en bois d'aujourd'hui! by Philip Jodidio( Book )

55 editions published between 2009 and 2013 in 5 languages and held by 535 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As soon as the first men bravely moved out of their protective caves, they surely built protective structures out of wood. The ultimate renewable resource for architecture is thus the oldest, but also the most modern of materials. Thanks to computer-driven design and manufacturing techniques, wood can be cut and carved in the most astonishing new ways. Such innovative contributors to the work published in this volume, such as the German professor Achim Menges, are showing the way to the creation of complex, almost living wood structures. Others like the young architects from WMR who are based in Santiago, Chile, show just how it is possible to build a dramatic two-story wood cabin overlooking the Pacific for just $30,000. Or imagine how an innovative polyurethane-coated wood canopy can cover and renew a whole area of the historic city of Seville (Metropol Parasol by Jürgen Mayer H.). Just as it can be simple and evocative, wood can be part of sophisticated structures like Snøhetta's Norwegian Wild Reindeer Pavilion, with its CNC-milled timber wall. Economical, ecological, and fundamentally warm, wood architecture is as contemporary as it gets."--Publisher's description
I.M. Pei : complete works by Philip Jodidio( Book )

7 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 473 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"--
Landscape architecture now! = Landschafts-Architektur heute! = Paysages contemporains! by Philip Jodidio( Book )

29 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in 6 languages and held by 470 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Restaurants, bars, and shops around the globe todaySome of the most spectacular architectural designs of the moment have to do with our most basic needs: eating, drinking, and shopping. Restaurants, bars, and boutiques are the substance of this new book that puts an emphasis--like all volumes of the Architecture Now -series--on the very latest and best creations. This is where you will find the likes of David Chipperfield and Peter Marino in the same book, where Jean Nouvel and BIG star Bjarke Ingels meet. But it is also the place to discover new talents like the designer of London's Late Night Chameleon Cafe, Gary Card, to see how the director David Lynch imagined the subterranean Paris nightclub Silencio, or what designer Tom Dixon conjured up for the Tazmania Ballroom in Hong Kong. From Kobe, Japan to Turku, Finland to Sao Paulo, Brazil, Eat Shop Drink rounds up the newest and brightest places to see and be seen."--Publisher's description
100 contemporary green buildings = 100 Zeitgenössische grüne Bauten = 100 bâtiments verts contemporains by Philip Jodidio( Book )

61 editions published between 2013 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 461 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Concrete? That characterless stuff of parking lots or Communist tower blocks, right? Well, yes. And no. Concrete is actually a name applied to a remarkably wide range of building substances, and, when properly handled, is one of the noble materials of contemporary architecture. A kind of "liquid stone" at the outset, it is malleable, durable, and capable of prodigious feats of engineering. This two-volume book highlights the best work done in concrete of recent years. It includes such stars as Zaha Hadid, Herzog & de Meuron, and Steven Holl, but also surprising new architects like the Russians SPEECH, and rising stars of the international scene like Rudy Ricciotti from France, as well as artists such as James Turrell, who turned the famous concrete spiral of Frank Lloyd Wright's Guggenheim in New York into the setting of one of his most remarkable pieces."--Provided by publisher

Sir Norman Foster by Philip Jodidio( Book )

33 editions published between 1977 and 2001 in 5 languages and held by 389 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
Meier : Richard Meier & Partners: complete works 1963-2008 by Philip Jodidio( Book )

27 editions published between 2008 and 2016 in 4 languages and held by 382 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From his early days as one of the "New York Five," Richard Meier has been a central figure in contemporary architecture; this updated 2013 trade edition of the XL version is published in the occasion of the firm's 50th anniversary. With the Getty Center and more recent buildings such as the Jubilee Church in Rome, Meier has established a reputation for expanded the horizons of contemporary American architecture while maintaining his rigorously rational approach to design and detailing. Known for carefully conceived grid plans and frequent use of white, Meier is a master of light, space, and volume, able to adapt his style to very different circumstances and locations. The entire span of Meier's career is included in this exceptional volume, newly updated for this edition and created in close collaboration with the architect, and the eminent graphic designer Massimo Vignelli. This spectacular monograph displays Meier's work in unprecedented size and brilliance, and features a preface by the noted Spanish architect Alberto Campo Baeza

Tadao Ando, 1995-2010 by Philip Jodidio( Book )

30 editions published between 2007 and 2012 in 5 languages and held by 321 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
Building a new millennium = Bauen im neuen Jahrtausend = Construire un nouveau millénaire by Philip Jodidio( Book )

26 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in 5 languages and held by 309 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

Piano : Renzo Piano building workshop 1966-2005 by Philip Jodidio( Book )

11 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in 5 languages and held by 245 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"'The array of buildings by Renzo Piano is staggering in scope and comprehensive in the diversity of scale, material, and form. He is truly an architect whose sensibilities represent the widest range of this and earlier centuries'. Such was the description of Renzo Piano given in the Pritzker Prize jury citation as it bestowed the prestigious award on him in 1998. Whereas some architects have a signature style, what sets Piano apart is that he seeks simply to apply a coherent set of ideas to new projects in extraordinarily different ways. 'One of the great beauties of architecture is that, each time, it is like life starting all over again', Piano says. 'Like a movie director doing a love story, a Western, or a murder mystery, a new world confronts an architect with each project'. This explains why it takes more than a superficial glance to recognize Piano's fingerprints on such various projects as the Pompidou Center in Paris (1971-1977), the Kansai airport in Osaka, Japan (1988-1994), and the Jean-Marie Tjibaou Cultural Center in Nouméa, New Caledonia (1991-1998). This stunning monograph, illustrated with photographs, sketches, and plans, covers Piano's career to date. Also included are sneak peeks at Piano's current projects, such as the New York Times tower, a 52-story skyscraper to be built in Times Square, and the 66-story London Bridge tower, which is set to be Europe's tallest building"--Bookjacket
