Statements for history by Kevin Roche( Visual )

5 editions published in 1984 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Kevin Roche discusses his work with Roche, Dinkeloo Associates. He explains that "architecture is a language between people, from age to age. It has a structure, form, syntax and style, and says something about our time, our culture, our preoccupations, our political society, our honesty and our sophistication. Architects have the peculair situation that while they think they are building buildings, they are in fact making statements for history, and if they thought about it in those terms, they might be a little more cautious, careful and thorough."

New buildings in old settings Ted Cullinan talks to Victoria Perry by Edward Cullinan( Visual )

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"Using slides, and an overhead projector on which he draws as he talks, [Ted Cullinan] describes how architecture has developed through the ages -- from the Greeks to the Romans, to Palladio, to the Romantics, through Cubism, up to the present day. And then ... he demonstrates how a new architecture can be used to respond to an existing situation without kowtowing to the past."--Publisher
