Calatrava : Santiago Calatrava, complete works 1979-today by Philip Jodidio( Book )

5 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 69 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Santiago Calatrava is a renowned architect, structural engineer and artist. Recent projects such as the Athens 2004 Olympic sports complex, the Turning Torso in Malmo, and TGV station in Liege, have brought him international acclaim. The only architect to exhibit at both the Museum of Modern Art and the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, he is presently designing the main transportation hub for Ground Zero in Manhattan, as well as the tallest building in the USA: the 150-story Chicago Tower. Calatrava collaborated extensively on this monograph, which traces his career and places his architecture in the context of his art and engineering prowess. All of his works, from the suspended swimming pool at Zurich's Federal Institute of Technology to his latest, startling designs, are featured in this lavishly illustrated volume

100 contemporary wood buildings = 100 zeitgenössische Holzbauten = 100 bátiments contemporains en bois by Philip Jodidio( Book )

4 editions published between 2015 and 2017 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Not so very long ago, some might have considered wood a material of the past, long since replaced by more modern components such as concrete and steel. The truth is radically different. Bolstered by new manufacturing techniques and ecological benefits, wood has seen a fabulous resurgence in contemporary construction. This double-volume survey explores how architects around the world have created and invented with this elementary material. Featuring follies, very large buildings, and ambitious urban renewal schemes, it celebrates the diverse deployment of wood from architects in China, Chile, and everywhere in between. We see how wood can at once transform urban spaces, as in the Metropol Parasol in Seville by Jürgen Mayer H, and allow for sensitive interventions in natural environments, as at the Finnish Forest Research Institute by SARC Architects, or the Termas Geométricas Hot Springs Complex by Germán del Sol. True to all Taschen architecture tomes, the book pays tribute to many emerging international talents, as well as to such renowned figures as Tadao Ando to Renzo Piano. It celebrates each of these architect's vision and innovation, as well as investigating the techniques, trends, and principles that have informed their work with wood. It examines the computer guided milling that has allowed for novel new forms, the responsible harvesting that allows wood to align with our environmental concerns, and, above all, wood's enduring appeal to our senses and our psyche, comforting hectic modern lives with a sense of Arcadian beauty and simplicity."--Provided by publisher
