Architecture : art by Philip Jodidio( Book )

14 editions published in 2005 in English and German and held by 658 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 485 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( )

22 editions published in 2006 in English and French and held by 441 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
Sir Norman Foster by Philip Jodidio( Book )

33 editions published between 1977 and 2001 in 6 languages and held by 420 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

21 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in 4 languages and held by 330 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

The first comprehensive monograph on the acclaimed American artist and architect, known for her environmental works and memorials that distill a tranquil yet texturally rich minimalism. Maya Lin is one of the most important public artists of this century. As an architecture student at Yale, Lin designed the Vietnam Veterans Memorial as a class project, entering it in the largest design competition in American history.

Tadao Ando at Naoshima : art, architecture, nature by Philip Jodidio( Book )

20 editions published between 2005 and 2009 in English and held by 320 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Tadao Ando at Naoshima: Art, Architecture, Nature showcases the latest work in an on-going process of building by Tadao Ando at the acclaimed Naoshima Island Art Complex. Featured here is Ando's recently completed Chichu Art Museum, an underground facility built on the small island in the Inland Sea of Japan. With respect for the landscape and the traditional use of the land as terraced salt fields, Ando was here determined to utterly adapt architecture to the topography, burying much of the complex volume below the ground. He was moved to fully explore the potential of "underground architecture," which imposes its own order and sensibility on space, allowing in only limited light while increasing a sense of depth, fostering ultimately cool tranquility in which one becomes enfolded. On permanent exhibit in the museum, and shown here, is an important body of work by impressionist Claude Monet as well as other major works by contemporary artists Walter De Maria and James Turrell."--Jacket

Architecture : nature by Philip Jodidio( Book )

13 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 308 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From ecologically-oriented designs to the most astonishing new forms, this book shows how essential nature remains to architecture."--Jacket
Contemporary California architects by Philip Jodidio( Book )

21 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in 4 languages and held by 306 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"California has had a strong tradition of inventive and innovative architecture since Frank Lloyd Wright came to the state in the 1920s. Although Frank O. Gehry is the best known of the current California architects, within the past few years numerous others such as Franklin Israel, Eric Owen Moss or Michael Rotondi have created new types of buildings, whose sources of inspiration are often close to contemporary art. The same innovative spirit which has made Southern California the world capital of the entertainment and electronics industries has also given rise to the new and exciting school of architecture described in this book."--The flyleaf
