Explorations : the architecture of John Ronan by John Ronan( )

6 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 366 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

John Ronan Architects' award-winning Gary Comer Youth Center was designed specifically to support the activities of Chicago's South Shore Drill Team; however, during the design process, the function of the space continued to evolve along with the client's goals, resulting in an architectural program that grew from a simple gym into a multifunctional space supporting a range of community and educational services. Explorations also features fully documented design processes for the recently completed Poetry Foundation in Chicago; the transformation of Washington, D.C.'s historic Yale Steam Laundry building into condominiums; the Urban Model High School, a new prototype school developed for the Public Building Commission of Chicago; and Precast Chapel, an economical concrete chapel for promoting interfaith dialogue and religious understanding. Ronan's ability to deliver adaptability along with a sense of identity and place renders his work both timely and destined to age with grace and dignity--meaningful additions to their environs that hold significant value to both building clients and end users. Explorations features a foreword by Toshiko Mori, chair of the department of architecture at the Harvard Graduate School of Design; an essay by highly respected Chicago-based architect Brad Lynch; and a Q & A with John Ronan conducted by Robert McAnulty
Immaterial/ultramaterial : architecture, design, and materials by Toshiko Mori( Book )

12 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 345 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Over the course of history, material such as concrete and steel changed the thinking process of architects. Immaterial/Ultramaterial, the second volume in the Millennium Matters series, investigates today's revolutionary new materials and methods of fabrication, and the profound impact they are having on the continuing evolution of architecture. The impact is felt in many areas, including architects' design methods, the conception of form, and modes of production. From the use of immaterial elements such as light, sound, and smell, to the implications of invincible materials ("ultramaterials"), which technological developments may soon place within our reach, this book envisions the future direction of architecture."--Jacket
Material Design Materialität in der Architektur by James Carpenter( )

6 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in German and held by 211 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Wenn das professionelle Interesse an neuen Materialien über eine intuitive Faszination hinausgeht, stellt sich die Frage, wie Innovationen aus der Materialerforschung in die Architekturanwendung importiert werden können. Hier setzt dieses grundlegende Buch an. Ausgehend von Materialeigenschaften wie Textur, Elastizität oder Transparenz überwindet es die traditionellen Einteilungen von Werkstoffen zugunsten der Darstellung übergreifender Verarbeitungs- und Verwendungsarten wie Falten und Biegen, Schneiden und Weben, Spiegeln und Projizieren. Die entwurfsorientierten Strategien und Techniken umfassen sowohl die etablierten als als "neue" Materialien. Sie übergreifen alle Maßstäbe vom Detail bis zum Gesamtgebäude. Die Beispiele reichen von Prototypen bis hin zu großen ausführten Projekten der letzten Jahre. In neun Kapiteln werden aus dieser neuen Sicht Oberflächen und Schichtungen, Fügungen und Verbindungen, Gewebe und Texturen, Transformationen mittels reaktiver Materialien und Nanomaterialien, die Integration ephemerer Faktoren wie Wind und Licht sowie die systematische Erschließung von Ressourcen durch Materialsammlungen dargestellt. Einleitend wird die Herausbildung der aktuellen Materialkultur beschrieben. Ein abschließender Teil behandelt den Beitrag der Materialinnovation zu aktuellen Anforderungen von Fragen der Nachhaltigkeit, des Lebenszyklus usw

Cloudline : a house by Toshiko Mori( Book )

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

Cloudline is a unique building designed by architect Toshiko Mori in collaboration with gallerists Sean and Mary Kelly and situated on the slopes of the Hudson River in Upstate New York. One is immediately greeted by art as soon as one enters the structure: Joseph Beuys, Jannis Kounellis, Juan Munoz, and Ian Hamilton Finlay escort you inside the space, which, with its aluminum-framed panoramic windows facing the Hudson Valley and its plain concrete floors, serves as a minimalist canvas for the art within. Cloudline's collection includes works of art by a considerable number of artists, some of which were created specifically for this site. Nearly a dozen of these same artists created new works especially for this book. These works of art will be reproduced as facsimiles, inserted into a numbered, limited edition version of the present publication, and accompanied by an essay by the novelist Colm Tóibín in which he describes the magic of Cloudline

Building a new millennium = Bauen im neuen Jahrtausend = Construire un nouveau millénaire by Philip Jodidio( Book )

1 edition published in 2000 in Multiple languages and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"With more than eighty projects by over fifty internationally renowned architects [including brief biographical sketches], this volume presents the latest developments and styles in architecture at the turn of a new millennium as it is reflected in churches, fashion boutiques, movie theaters or media labs. Ranging from experimental housing to large international airports, universities and museums, projects by Norman Foster, Renzo Piano or Richard Meier are contrasted with structures like Shigeru Ban's 'Wall-less house," Daniel Libeskind's recently completed Jewish Museum, or the 'Pharmacy' restaurant by Damien Hirst and Mike Rundell. Together, these buildings constitute a dynamic vision of the 21st century"--Inside flap of front cover

Sanctuaries, the last works of John Hejduk : selections from the John Hedjuk archive at the Canadian Centre for Architecture, Montreal and the Menil collection, Houston by K. Michael Hays( Book )

2 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"John Hejduk (1929-2000) was one of the most original figures in American architecture and design. Best known for his visionary works and his influence upon graduates of The Cooper Union, New York, where he was dean for twenty-five years, Hejduk largely abstained from conventional practice, focusing instead on theoretical projects, usually in the form of drawings that were combined into poetic, highly personal narratives. Sanctuaries: The Last Works of John Hejduk highlights the architect's later work, in which he made successive attempts to shift his architecture away from the mathematical concerns of his earlier work - which had owed much to Mies van der Rohe and Mondrian - toward an allegorical, carnivalesque mode that he called architectural "masques." In these works, Hejduk presented his architecture in a more lyrical, painterly, and narrative way, and in the last of the works - including Enclosures, a suite of thirty-two drawings reproduced here in its entirety - returned architecture to an overtly spiritual function. The works display a stylistic range from basic geometric forms and elemental biomorphism (buildings that seem to have hair, beaks, eyes, and legs) to typological variations on theaters, periscopes, traps, chapels, and labyrinths. Employing allegorical images of angels, animals, martyrs, and machines, these works explore themes of falls from grace, itinerancy, passage and transformation, and above all, architecture as sanctuary - for art, for culture, for enduring rituals, for the human spirit itself."--BOOK JACKET
