Zaha Hadid : BMW Central Building by Zaha Hadid( Book )

16 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in English and held by 247 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Zaha Hadid's highly inventive and seemingly unbuildable designs have always defied conventional ideas of architectural space and construction. The BMW Central Building in Leipzig, Germany, a recent addition to her visionary, gravity-defying, fearlessly bold, and rapidly increasing body of built work, succeeds in creating space through lines of motion. The heart of the BMW factory complex, the Central Building is the dynamic focal point of the entire plant that visually, physically, and experientially sustains a sense of animation. With the constant movement supplied by employees, visitors, and automobiles and its audacious, abstracted geometry of forms and lines, the structure challenges the notion of building as a static art." "Zaha Hadid, the 2004 Pritzker Prize Laureate and the first woman to receive the honor, is celebrated for her unbuilt works as well as her built works, including the Phaeno Science Center (Wolfsburg, Germany), Rosenthal Center for Contemporary Art (Cincinnati, Ohio), Bergisel Ski Jump (Innsbruck, Austria), and Vitra Fire Station (Weil am Rhein, Germany)."--Jacket
Bernard Tschumi, Zénith de Rouen, Rouen, France by Bernard Tschumi( Book )

11 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 202 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Architect Bernard Tschumi is internationally regarded as one of the boldest thinkers in contemporary architecture as well as one of its most inventive formgivers. Translating his bold visions into built structure has always been challenging, and nowhere is this more evident than in the Zenith de Rouen, his recently completed concert hall and exhibition complex in Rouen, France. As one of the most accomplished and seductive of Tschumi's built projects, the Zenith de Rouen stands as a tour-de-force of design, technique, and construction."
Steven Holl/Simmons Hall by Todd Gannon( Book )

15 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 191 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The award-winning Simmons Hall, completed in 2002, is Steven Holl's 'vertical slice of a city', an urban microcosm on the Massachusetts Institute of Technology campus. Motivated by the sea sponge and the idea of porosity, Holl invents a highly innovative structure that inspires its residents and compels them to revel in the unexpected. Immense interior voids, irregular and arrhythmic geometrical holes that form unexpected public spaces, as well as extraordinarily adaptable modular wooden furnisings, create a kinetic work-in-progress to be dictated by one's experience of the space and the whims of its occupants. Holl, whose tactile architecture has been celebrated as 'buildings that satisfy the spirit as well as the eye', has channeled his love of sculptural shapes, details, and inventive and original use of light, space, color, and material in Simmons Hall to find its rightful place in the company of Alvar Aalto's Baker House, and Eero Saarinen's chapel and his Kresge Auditorium at MIT. [This book] features extensive photographic documentation by Andy Ryan of the construction and finished project. These images are accompanied by an exhaustive graphic presentation of sketches, model, rendering, and working drawings, interviews with Holl, and commentary from architects and critics that examine both the technical and cultural significance of this important structure"--Back cover

A confederacy of heretics( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 106 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A Confederacy of Heretics examines the explosion of activity associated with the Architecture Gallery, the first gallery in Los Angeles dedicated exclusively to architecture. Instigated by Thom Mayne in the fall of 1979, the Architecture Gallery staged ten exhibitions in as many weeks by both young and established Los Angeles practitioners, featuring the work of Eugene Kupper, Roland Coate, Jr., Frederick Fisher, Frank Dimster, Frank Gehry, Peter de Bretteville, Morphosis (Thom Mayne and Michael Rotondi), Studio Works (Craig Hodgetts and Robert Mangurian), and Eric Owen Moss. Another young architect, Coy Howard, opened the events with a lecture at the Southern California Institute of Architecture, which hosted talks by each exhibiting architect. In an unprecedented move by the popular press, the events were chronicled in weekly reviews by the critic John Dreyfuss in the Los Angeles Times. Gathering an array of original drawings, models, photographs, video recordings, and commentary alongside new assessments by current scholars, A Confederacy of Heretics aims neither to canonize the participating architects nor to consecrate their unorthodox activities. Rather, the book re-examines the early work of some of Los Angeles' most well-known architects, charts the development of their most potent design techniques, and documents a crucial turning point in Los Angeles architecture, a time when Angeleno architecture culture shifted from working local variations on imported themes to exporting highly original disciplinary innovations with global reach. Taken together, the exhibition, symposium, and catalog that comprise A Confederacy of Heretics offer a unique lens through which to analyze a pivotal moment in the development of late twentieth-century architecture

Bernard Tschumi, Zénith de Rouen by Laurie A Gunzelman( Book )

4 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Architect Bernard Tschumi is internationally regarded as one of the boldest thinkers in contemporary architecture as well as one of its most inventive formgivers. Translating his bold visions into built structure has always been challenging, and nowhere is this more evident than in the Zenith de Rouen, his recently completed concert hall and exhibition complex in Rouen, France. As one of the most accomplished and seductive of Tschumi's built projects, the Zenith de Rouen stands as a tour-de-force of design, technique, and construction." "Including an exhaustive presentation of sketches, models, computer renderings, working drawings, and photographs of the construction process and the finished work, this book documents the project at a level of detail that allows complete and careful study from its conception to its completion. This in-depth graphic presentation is accompanied by commentaries from the architect, as well as series editors Jeffery Kipnis and Todd Gannon, that further explore both the cultural and technical significance of this important building."--BOOK JACKET
Reyner Banham and the paradoxes of high tech by Todd Gannon( Book )

3 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Reyner Banham and the Paradoxes of High Tech' reassesses one of the most influential voices in twentieth-century architectural history through a detailed examination of Banham's writing on High Tech architecture and its immediate antecedents. Taking as a guide Banham's habit of structuring his writings around dialectical tensions, Todd Gannon sheds new light on Banham's early engagement with the New Brutalism of Alison and Peter Smithson, his measured enthusiasm for the "clip-on" approach developed by Cedric Price and the Archigram group, his advocacy of "well- tempered environments" fostered by integrated mechanical and electrical systems, and his late-career assessments of High Tech practitioners such as Norman Foster, Richard Rogers, and Renzo Piano. Gannon devotes significant attention to Banham's late work, including fresh archival materials related to 'Making Architecture: The Paradoxes of High Tech', the manuscript he left unfinished at his death in 1988. For the first time, readers will have access to Banham's previously unpublished draft introduction to that book

Grand hotel : redesigning modern life by Vancouver Art Gallery( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From the utilitarian inns that punctuated ancient trade routes to the worldwide network of Hilton and Hyatt, the hotel has transitioned from a marginal building type to a cultural phenomenon within the global economy. Terms like 'boutique' and 'lifestyle' have become ubiquitous buzzwords in the vocabulary of the hotel, and they engender a new vision of an affective and responsive spatial environment. Architecture and interior design have always played a crucial role in the development of hotels, but their purpose has become more and more decisive, transforming the building type into the advanced form of integrated design that it is today. The scope of the publication is global, an acknowledgment of the pervasive presence of a commercial network that is architecturally formed, geographically distributed, and socially defined."--Publisher's website
