The architect's home( Book )

6 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 90 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The houses architects design for themselves The greatest challenge in designing homes is negotiating the delicate balance between aesthetics and the personal desires of the occupants. While its important for the structure to reflect the vision and style of the architect, the client must ultimately feel at home beneath the roof. It is particularly interesting, therefore, to examine the homes that architects create for themselves. If houses reflect their owners personalities, then architects own homes are like autobiographies. Location, layout, style, lighting, artwork, furnishingsevery detail adds color to the story. Each of these dwellings, presented A-Z by architect, speaks more about its designer than any other building possibly could. Show more Show less

Sigurd Lewerentz by Sigurd Lewerentz( Book )

5 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 57 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The only comprehensive monograph of the work of Sigurd Lewerentz, features 150 of Lewerentz's designs and constructions spanning more than 60 years. Sigurd Lewerentz (1885 - 1975) was one of the major Swedish architects of the twentieth century and was particularly known for his important religious works. This definitive monograph is the only comprehensive survey of his work, celebrating his sensitive and distinctive response to modernism in a detailed survey of both built and planned projects. These span his embrace and rejection of the classical language of architecture and his turn instead towards modernism and a more austere design vocabulary. The book includes his best-known chapels of St Knut and St Gertrud in the Malmo cemetry (begun in 1916), the conversion of the cathedral in Uppsala, on which he worked for nearly ten years and the church of St Peter at Klippan. The first section of the volume includes essays on Lewerentz's work by the late Colin St John Wilson and the editors Nicola Flora, Paolo Giardiello and Gennaro Postiglione, plus a text on cemeteries by Lewerentz that is the only known piece of writing by the architect. The central section contains a catalogue of Lewerentz's works presenting around 150 designs and constructions in chronological order with detailed descriptions, photographs and drawings. An anthology of criticisms includes a text by the renowned architect Alison Smithson. A complete list of works and a bibliography based on research in the archives of Stockholm's Museum of Architecture conclude the volume
