The force is in the mind : the making of architecture by Elke Krasny( Book )

14 editions published in 2008 in English and German and held by 204 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"While in one Parisian architects' studio shots are fired at clay blocks, in another orchids are raised. In Zurich an architect reclined on her bed with a wooden setsquare in her hand, in Hong Kong thinking is done with pieces of Lego." "How do architects work this side of the legendary sketches on paper napkins and the ubiquitous monitors? Are the spaces in their studios and offices a kind of visiting card for different approaches and ways of working? What roles do the collective tools of a particular era play in the individual design act?" "Using photographs, texts, models, sketches and inspiration objects this book documents an international architectural field research project and shows how different architects use their tools and indeed even invent "their own" sets of instruments to spark their creative processes."--Jacket

Architecture in Austria in the 20th & 21st centuries by Architektur Zentrum Wien( Book )

11 editions published in 2006 in English and German and held by 201 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Austrian architecture is marked by a high degree of variety, which calls out again and again for the taking of an inventory. Using ten thematic and chronological episodes, this book invites the reader on an expedition through the Austrian architecture of the last 150 years: Prologue, Red Vienna, Landscape, Power, Reconstruction, International, System, Utopia, Collage, and The Present Day. The focus is not only on presenting individual structures-architecture is depicted with all of its many connections to the larger worlds of culture, technology, and society. The subject of residential buildings is singled out for special attention. This comprehensive overview achieves a systematic documentary fusion of diverse materials. On the one hand, the chronological sequence of well-defined phases of architectural development remains present and palpable throughout as an overarching narrative. At the same time, the volume seeks to inspire the reader to go more deeply into individual moments, beyond the constraints of any historical canon. Thus, the question of the continuities and discontinuities of twentieth - and twenty - first - century Austrian architecture is the leitmotif of all of the chronological segments and opens the way to divergent interpretations

New building today : European architecture of the 1990s by Vienna Architecture Congress( Book )

11 editions published in 1995 in English and Italian and held by 180 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Unsurprisingly, the replies were disparate, in keeping with the uniqueness of each national situation. Europe's new architecture is coming across exactly like its exponents: heterogeneous, multilayered, embarking on discovery and ready for dialogue. But in one feature the examples presented here are alike: all are searching for architectural inspiration which will tie them to the modern classical tradition
Critical care : architecture and urbanism for a broken planet by Architekturzentrum Wien( Book )

7 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 155 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How architecture and urbanism can help to care for and repair a broken planet: essays and illustrated case studies. Today, architecture and urbanism are capital-centric, speculation-driven, and investment-dominated. Many cannot afford housing. Austerity measures have taken a disastrous toll on public infrastructures. The climate crisis has rendered the planet vulnerable, even uninhabitable. This book offers an alternative vision in architecture and urbanism that focuses on caring for a broken planet. Rooted in a radical care perspective that always starts from the given, in the midst of things, this edited collection of essays and illustrated case studies documents ideas and practices from an extraordinarily diverse group of contributors. Focusing on the three crisis areas of economy, ecology, and labor, the book describes projects including village reconstruction in China; irrigation in Spain; community land trust in Puerto Rico; revitalization of modernist public housing in France; new alliances in informal settlements in Nairobi; and the redevelopment of traditional building methods in flood areas in Pakistan. Essays consider such topics as ethical architecture, land policy, creative ecologies, diverse economies, caring communities, and the exploitation of labor. Taken together, these case studies and essays provide evidence that architecture and urbanism have the capacity to make the planet livable, again

SOS Brutalism( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 95 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"SOS Brutalism is a distress signal. Since the 1950s, eminent architects around the world have realized buildings expressing an uncompromising attitude. Predominantly, yet not exclusively, they used exposed concrete, or béton brut (hence the term Brutalism), for the construction. Today, many of these always controversially discussed buildings are in danger of demolition or, at least, of reconstruction that often may change their appearance beyond recognition. In recent years, an initiative to protect and preserve this significant global heritage of 20th-century architecture has gained momentum, mainly in the internet. Using the hashtag #SOSBrutalism, the Deutsches Architekturmuseum (DAM, German Museum of Architecture) in Frankfurt on the Main and the Wüstenrot Foundation participate in this campaign with a vast collaborative research project. Exhibition: Deutsches Architekturmuseum, Frankfurt/Main, Germany (08.11.2017-25.02.2018) / Architekturzentrum Wien Az W, Vienna, Austria (03.05.-06.08.2018).." --Publisher
A flower for the dead : the memorials of Bogdan Bogdanović by Friedrich Achleitner( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 95 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Friedrich Achleitner, a poet and architectural critic, was a close friend of Bogdan Bogdanovic in his late years, when he was living in exile in Vienna. Achleitner visited all of Bogdanovic's memorials, first with his friend, then again after the artist's death, and this book presents his impressions of the sites through a striking combination of essays and images that bring home the theme of Bogdanovic's work, a desire to include rather than exclude, to unite rather than separate
