European architecture 1750-1890 by Barry Bergdoll( Book )

19 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 1,096 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book explores the innovative ways in which architects from Soufflot and Adam to Viollet-le-Duc and Semper responded to the new challenges of a rapidly changing modern world. A wide range of buildings were created to house railway stations, prisons, department stores, and museums; the entirely new products of the industrial, political and economic revolutions sweeping Europe." "Bergdoll argues that this period of constantly changing architecture, encompassing Neoclassicism and the Gothic Revival, constitutes one of the great experimental epochs in European architectural history. Famous cities and buildings such as the Houses of Parliament, the Eiffel Tower, and the Ringstrasse in Vienna are all covered in this indispensable guide to the exciting architectural developments of this period."--BOOK JACKET
Bauhaus 1919-1933 : workshops for modernity by Barry Bergdoll( Book )

17 editions published in 2009 in English and Norwegian and held by 913 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Bauhaus, the school of art and design founded in Germany in 1919 and shut down by the Nazis in 1933, brought together artists, architects and designers - among them Anni and Josef Albers, Herbert Bayer, Marcel Breuer, Lyonel Feininger, Walter Gropius, Johannes Itten, Vasily Kandinsky, Paul Klee, Laszlo Moholy-Nagy, Lilly Reich, Oskar Schlemmer, Gunta Stolzl - in an extraordinary conversation on the nature of art in the industrial age. Aiming to rethink the form of modern life, the Bauhaus became the site of a dazzling array of experiments in the visual arts that have profoundly shaped the world today. Bauhaus 1919-1933: Workshops for Modernity, published to accompany a major multimedia exhibition, is The Museum of Modern Art's first comprehensive treatment of the subject since its famous Bauhaus exhibition of 1938, and offers a new generational perspective on the twentieth century's most influential experiment in artistic education." "Organized in collaboration with the three major Bauhaus collections in Germany (the Bauhaus-Archiv Berlin, the Stiftung Bauhaus Dessau and the Klassic Stiftung Weimar), Bauhaus 1919-1933 examines the extraordinarily broad spectrum of the school's products, including industrial design, furniture, architecture, graphics, photography, textiles, ceramics, theater and costume design, painting and sculpture. Many of the objects discussed and illustrated here have rarely if ever been seen or published outside Germany. Featuring approximately 400 color plates, richly complemented by documentary images, Bauhaus 1919-1933 includes two overarching essays by the exhibition's curators, Barry Bergdoll and Leah Dickerman, that present new perspectives on the Bauhaus. Shorter essays by more than 20 leading scholars apply contemporary viewpoints to 30 key Bauhaus objects, and an illustrated narrative chronology provides a dynamic glimpse of the Bauhaus' lived history."--Jacket

Mies in Berlin by Terence Riley( Book )

26 editions published in 2001 in English and German and held by 705 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This in-depth look at Mies van der Rohes early career, published to accompany an exhibition opening at New Yorks Museum of Modern Art in June 2001 and traveling to Berlin and other European venues, is the first to examine the architects work in Europe in terms of specific historical and cultural contextrather than the more abstract and formal arguments of the International Style. While earlier studies have described a fundamental break between Miess neo-classical work prior to 1919 and the more avant-garde work of the 1920s, recent research demonstrates that the transformation was much more gradual. Here 11 scholars and architectural historians explore particular aspects of Miess work, together shedding new light on the continual interplay of tradition and innovation, nature and abstraction, in the evolution of his design theories and methods. With a wealth of photographs and drawings, many not previously published, this book conveys for the first time the dynamic intellectual ferment of this formative period in the life of one of architectures towering figures
Home delivery : fabricating the modern dwelling by Barry Bergdoll( Book )

27 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 564 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As the world's population swells and the need for sustainable ways of living grows ever more urgent and obvious, prefabricated architecture has taken center stage. Even before our current predicaments, the mass-produced, factory-made home had a distinguished history, having served as a vital precept in the development of Modern architecture. Today, with the digital revolution reorganizing the relationship between drafting board and factory, it continues to spur innovative manufacturing and design, and its potential has clearly not yet come to fruition. Home Delivery traces the history of prefabrication in architecture, from its early roots in colonial cottages though the work of such figures as Jean Prouve and Buckminster Fuller, and mass-produced variants such as the Lustron house, to a group of full-scale contemporary houses commissioned specifically for the MoMA exhibition that this book accompanies"--Jacket
Frank Lloyd Wright : unpacking the archive by Barry Bergdoll( Book )

9 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 562 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Published for a major exhibition at The Museum of Modern Art, this catalog reveals new perspectives on the work of Frank Lloyd Wright, a designer so prolific and familiar as to nearly preclude critical reexamination. Structured as a series of inquiries into the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation Archives at Taliesin West, Arizona (recently acquired by MoMA and Avery Architectural & Fine Arts Library, Columbia University), the book is a collection of scholarly explorations rather than an attempt to construct a master narrative. Each chapter centers on a key object from the archive that an invited author has "unpacked"--Tracing its meanings and connections, and juxtaposing it with other works from the archive, from MoMA, or from outside collections. Wright's quest to build a mile-high skyscraper reveals him to be one of the earliest celebrity architects, using television, press relations and other forms of mass media to advance his own self-crafted image. A little-known project for a Rosenwald School for African-American children, together with other projects that engage Japanese and Native American culture, ask provocative questions about Wright's positions on race and cultural identity. Still other investigations engage the architect's lifelong dedication to affordable and do-it-yourself housing, as well as the ecological systems, both social and environmental, that informed his approach to cities, landscapes and even ornament. The publication aims to open up Wright's work to questions, interrogations and debates, and to highlight interpretations by contemporary scholars, both established Wright experts and others considering this iconic figure from new and illuminating perspectives
Karl Friedrich Schinkel : an architecture for Prussia by Barry Bergdoll( Book )

19 editions published in 1994 in English and German and held by 524 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The great German neoclassical architect Karl Friedrich Schinkel (1781-1841) is one of the pivotal figures in architectural history; his public buildings, palaces, luxurious interiors, and opera sets remain an important influence on architecture today. Schinkel produced almost all of his most famous works -- in effect, creating prototypes for nineteenth century public architecture -- during his 1815-41 tenure at the Prussian state architectural service. During this period, often referred to as the Schinkelzeit in his honor, the monarchy under King Friedrich Wilhelm III and enlightened state administrators came together to form a grand and powerful new Prussia. This first monograph in English gives a long-awaited appraisal of Schinkel as he forged a new syntax of architecture and a new definition of the architect's place in society"-- Front flap
Loblolly House : elements of a new architecture by Stephen Kieran( )

5 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 487 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Kieran Timberlake Associates, winner of the prestigious 2008 AIA Architecture Firm Award, puts its ideas about streamlining the design-build process to the test in this house, featuring an adjustable double-skin facade. Situated on idyllic Taylors Island, off the coast of Maryland's Chesapeake Bay, Loblolly House inaugurates a new, more efficient way of building through the use of building information modeling (BIM) and integrated component assemblies. With minimal impact to the site's ecosystem, the house was manufactured off site and lifted into place. Thousands of parts were collapsed into a few dozen prefabricated cartridges and.blocks that simply slid into an industrial aluminum frame on location." "Loblolly House is more than just an experimental prefab. It is a step in the process toward an element-based approach to mass housing, which presupposes the eventual disassembly and reuse of common building materials. This single-building monograph takes a comprehensive and technical look at Kieran Timberlake's milestone project, from early design sketches and BIM detailing to on-site assembly, postoccupancy evaluation, and the development of subsequent prototypes that further advance the Loblolly House agenda: to permanently transform the American housing industry."--Jacket

Nature design : from inspiration to innovation by Angeli Sachs( Book )

16 editions published in 2007 in German and English and held by 351 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Nature has been a source of inspiration in the design of the human environment, and its influence on contemporary design is more than evident. The "model of nature," with its forms, structures, and organizing principles, does not only inspire the widest range of concept and design processes, but also can be expressed in a broad spectrum of forms and functions. Nature Design addresses this phenomenon from the eighteenth century until today, and presents an international selection of objects and projects from the fields of design, architecture, landscape architecture, art, photography, and scientific research that do not simply depict or imitate nature, but use it as a starting point and reservoir of inspiration for eclectic and innovative responses to the relationship between man and his environment."--Jacket
Léon Vaudoyer : historicism in the age of industry by Barry Bergdoll( Book )

14 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 349 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Vaudoyer was a key figure in the reformulation of the institutions and doctrines of academic architecture during the Revolution, Empire, and Bourbon Restoration
Building Seagram by Phyllis Lambert( Book )

7 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 333 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Seagram building rises over New York's Park Avenue, seeming to float above the street with perfect lines of bronze and glass. Considered one of the greatest icons of twentieth-century architecture, the building was commissioned by Samuel Bronfman, founder of the Canadian distillery dynasty Seagram. Bronfman's daughter Phyllis Lambert was twenty-seven years old when she took over the search for an architect and chose Mies van der Rohe (18861969), a pioneering modern master of what he termed "skin and bones" architecture. Mies, who designed the elegant, deceptively simple thirty-eight-story tower along with Philip Johnson (19062005), emphasized the beauty of structure and fine materials, and set the building back from the avenue, creating an urban oasis with the building's plaza. Through her choice, Lambert established her role as a leading architectural patron and singlehandedly changed the face of American urban architecture. Building Seagram is a comprehensive personal and scholarly history of a major building and its architectural, cultural, and urban legacies. Lambert makes use of previously unpublished personal archives, company correspondence, and photographs to tell an insider's view of the debates, resolutions, and unknown dramas of the building's construction, as well as its crucial role in the history of modern art and architectural culture."--Publisher description
Henri Labrouste : structure brought to light by Henri Labrouste( Book )

8 editions published in 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 320 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Henri Labrouste is one of the few nineteenth-century architects consistently lionized as a precursor of modern architecture throughout the twentieth century and into our own time. The two magisterial glass-and-iron reading rooms he built in Paris gave form to the idea of the modern library as a collective civic space. His influence was both immediate and long-lasting, not only on the development of the modern library but also on the exploration of new paradigms of space, materials and luminosity in places of great public assembly. Published to accompany the first exhibition devoted to Labrouste in the United States - and the first anywhere in the world in nearly 40 years - this publication presents nearly 225 works in all media, including drawings, watercolors, vintage and modern photographs, film stills and architectural models. Essays by a range of international architecture scholars explore Labrouste's work and legacy through a variety of approaches
Partners in design : Alfred H. Barr Jr. and Philip Johnson( Book )

3 editions published between 2015 and 2017 in English and German and held by 315 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The story of Alfred Barr and Philip Johnson, two young men, now acknowledged as giants in the history of modernism, who changed the course of design in the United States. In the 1920s and 1930s a new aesthetic emerged in the United States, based on the principles of the Bauhaus in Germany: rational, functional design devoid of ornament and without reference to historical styles. Alfred H. Barr Jr., founding director of the Museum of Modern Art, and Philip Johnson, director of its architecture department, were the leading proponents of the modern approach. Using as their laboratories both MoMA and their own apartments in New York, Barr and Johnson experimented with new ideas in museum ideology, extending the scope beyond painting and sculpture to include design and film; with exhibitions of ordinary objects elevated to art by their elegant design; and with installations in dramatically lit galleries with smooth, white walls"
Lina Bo Bardi by Zeuler Rocha Mello de Almeida Lima( Book )

10 editions published between 2013 and 2019 in English and held by 314 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lina Bo Bardi (1914-1992), one of the most important architects working in Latin America in the 20th century, was remarkably prolific and intriguingly idiosyncratic. A participant in the efforts to reshape Italian culture in her youth, Bo Bardi immigrated to Brazil with her husband in 1946. In Brazil, her practice evolved within the social and cultural realities of her adopted country. While she continued to work with industrial materials like concrete and glass, she added popular building materials and naturalistic forms to her design palette, striving to create large, multiuse spaces that welcomed public life. Lina Bo Bardi is the first comprehensive study of Bo Bardi's career and showcases author Zeuler Lima's extensive archival work in Italy and Brazil. The leading authority on Bo Bardi, Lima frames the architect's activities on two continents and in five cities. The book examines how considerations of ethics, politics, and social inclusiveness influenced Bo Bardi's intellectual engagement with modern architecture and provides an authoritative guide to her experimental, ephemeral, and iconic works of design

Rising currents : projects for New York's waterfront by Barry Bergdoll( Book )

11 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 228 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the fall of 2009, The Museum of Modern Art and MoMA PS1 selected five interdisciplinary teams of architects, engineers and landscape designers to propose solutions to the effects of climate change on New York's waterfront. The resulting proposals, exhibited at MoMA in 2010 in the exhibition Rising Currents: Projects for New York's Waterfront, emphasize "soft" infrastructure interventions that would make New York City and its surrounding areas more ecologically sound and more resilient in responding to rising sea levels and storm surges. These innovative projects include the creation of salt- and freshwater wetlands, a Venice-like aqueous landscape, habitable piers and man-made islands, and a protective reef of living oysters. Published to document the exhibition, Rising Currents: Projects for New York's Waterfront presents these five projects in detail through essays that summarize the innovative workshop and exhibition, the dialogues they engendered with outside experts and political figures involved in regional planning, and the climate change and urban planning implications of the proposed solutions
