Building the Getty by Richard Meier( Book )

14 editions published between 1997 and 1999 in English and held by 683 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of America's most eminent architects tells us what it was like to undertake the architectural commission of the century: the building of the Getty Center in Los Angeles. Writing with wit and passion and in engrossing detail, Richard Meier takes us behind the scenes of the thirteen-year-long, one-billion-dollar project. Meier tells us how he was selected from more than thirty architects, after a lengthy and involved series of interviews, to design the cultural campus on the spectacular 110-acre site overlooking the Santa Monica Mountains and the Pacific Ocean. The Getty was a new cultural institution, and Meier worked with the program directors to design the buildings that would serve them best. In the beginning, neither he nor the Getty had any idea of the complications in store for them. The sheer scale and complexity of the project, and the number of people involved in every decision, continued to mean constant revisions. As construction moved ahead, Meier lived on the site, yet commuted to his New York office to manage ongoing European projects, while in his new office in Los Angeles, the population of architects handling the Getty grew to more than a hundred. Although the Center's design had been agreed on, much negotiation lay ahead before questions of material, color, and landscaping were at last settled. Finally, in 1996, almost half of the Center was ready to be occupied, and Meier could see that the work - carried out by the many architects, engineers, technicians, craftsmen, and builders for twelve years - was well on its way to being completed

Hariri & Hariri houses by Gisue Hariri( Book )

7 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 247 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Since starting their practice in 1986, Iranian-born, American-educated sisters Gisue and Mojgan Hariri have earned widespread praise for their ambitious body of work. Their up-to-the-minute recasting of classical modernist principles has made them a source of continuing inspiration to design students and professionals alike. The projects presented in Hariri & Hariri: Houses all demonstrate the rare ability of the Hariris to combine modernist rigor with what New Yorker architecture critic Paul Goldberger has identified as an "understanding of the patterns of everyday life.""--Jacket

The urban house : townhouses, apartments, lofts, and other spaces for city living by Ron Broadhurst( Book )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 192 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"An authoritative volume on the most innovative new residential design in cities around the globe. This carefully curated book presents twenty-five new and recent spaces for city living. Author Ron Broadhurst has selected projects that represent a set of ideas that can be described as belonging particularly to our time and which will shape how we think of living in the city in the future. Where the great experimenters of the last century were stripping away ornamentation and creating free-flowing spaces for the first time, today's innovators are pioneering research in the potential of new materials for both formal invention and environmental sustainability and creating bold and sophisticated essays in the adaptive reuse of spaces originally designed for other purposes. With the newest work from such design luminaries as Andrée Putman, Annabelle Selldorf, and Richard Meier, as well as emergent talents like Barbara Bestor and Messana O'Rorke, The Urban House is a uniquely coherent volume on the best in new residential design."--Publisher's website

The Grotta House by Richard Meier by Richard Meier( Book )

4 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 175 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The best architects are often defined by a singular residential commission - for example, Fallingwater by Frank Lloyd Wright or the Farnsworth House by Mies van der Rohe. In Richard Meier's case, the Grotta House is the culmination of the styles and techniques that can be found in the best of his work. Designed and constructed in the second half of the 1980s, the house also exhibits the Grottas exceptional collection of crafts and furniture." "This book, which includes a very candid interview with the Grottas as well as detailed photography and text commenting on every facet of the residence, is essential reading for the modern architect or anyone who aspires to commission a house."--Jacket

"All great art engages in a dialogue with the past. Architecture is no exception, as this film shows in its examination of the legacy of Sir John Soane (1753-1837), an English architect of rare genius whose influence on a generation of America's foremost architects is profound...This film investigates both the influence of antiquity on Soane, following in his Grand Tour footsteps through Rome and Sicily, as well as the ways his stripped-down classical style helped guide the American architects out of the strictures of Modernism." -- Container
