White Towers by Paul Hirshorn( Book )

24 editions published between 1979 and 2007 in English and held by 648 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Today's dominant fast-food franchises spend millions to persuade us that they do it all for us, that we can have it our way. White Tower, the pioneering hamburger chain founded in 1926, never felt the need for this kind of advertising; it depended on its instantly recognizable building to say it all. Those gleaming white ("clean"), well-lighted ("always open"), streamlined ("fast and efficient"), human-scaled ("friendly") structures were three-dimensional billboards for their franchise, capped by an actual white tower often redundantly labeled, in bold graphics, "White Tower." This was branding before the age of branding

Aprendiendo de las Vegas : el simbolismo olvidado de la forma arquitectónica by Robert Venturi( Book )

15 editions published between 1978 and 2016 in Spanish and held by 63 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

En 1968, un grupo de tres profesores y varios estudiantes de la escuela de arquitectura de la Yale University emprendieron un viaje a Las Vegas con el fin de llevar a cabo un proyecto de investigación sobre el análisis formal de la arquitectura de la peculiar ciudad del estado de Nevada. El resultado se materializaría cuatro años más tarde con la publicación de Aprendiendo de Las Vegas, un libro que agitó el mundo académico del momento y supuso un punto de inflexión radical en la historia y la crítica de la arquitectura. Siguiendo la estela de la tradición de libros de viajes escritos por arquitectos, Aprendiendo de Las Vegas documenta e investiga la dispersión urbana y los métodos de representación de la capital del entretenimiento. Venturi, Scott Brown e Izenour estudiaron detenidamente el simbolismo de una ciudad que había crecido en medio del desierto de Mojave a una velocidad jamás vista hasta entonces, una ciudad espejismo cuyas vallas publicitarias de neón y la extraordinaria baja densidad urbana conformaban, especialmente de noche, una suerte de espacio urbano de ficción. Con su análisis los autores ampliaron el uso dado hasta entonces a las formas de comunicación de la arquitectura y pusieron por vez primera el foco de atención en cuestiones que se consideraban ajenas al mundo de la arquitectura: el descubrimiento de lo trivial y la belleza de lo ordinario. Considerado como uno de los grandes manifiestos de la posmodernidad en arquitectura, Aprendiendo de Las Vegas es uno de los textos más influyentes de la teoría de la arquitectura de la segunda mitad del siglo xx
