If--then architectural speculations by Stan Allen ( )
13 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 590 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"With new visions for architectural invention that challenge social and political assumptions, If...Then explores whether speculative work can generate a concrete imprint on social reality. Since architecture serves as a means of manifesting the collective aspirations of community - providing symbols of cultural value and housing cultural production - can innovation in site, program, form, technology, and materials advance the community fabric? If...Then showcases six young firms whose work seeks to transform the urban and suburban experience, adapting and reimagining new relationships and social structures within the framework of the built environment - manipulating the boundaries between fiction and construction."--BOOK JACKET

Charlotte Perriand : an art of living by Charlotte Perriand ( Book )
2 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 403 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Charlotte Perriand (1903-1999) was one of the most innovative furniture and interior designers of the twentieth century. Although her work has long been recognized by furniture historians and Le Corbusier specialists, Perriand's pioneering role has only recently become more widely appreciated. Her long career embraced much of the history of modern design in France, including Art Deco, machine-age modernism, the organic rusticity of the 1930s and 1940s, serially produced metal and wood furniture of the 1950s and 1960s, and plastic and prefabricated bathroom and kitchen units of the 1970s. Perriand collaborated with Le Corbusier and Pierre Jeanneret on the creation of their famous "LC" furniture and was responsible for the design of many of their major interiors. After 1938, she also worked frequently with Jean Prouve, developing a series of innovative modular storage units and low-cost residential furnishings. Apart from these collaborations, Perriand had her own practice, which encompassed a wide range of projects and countries, from a chaise lounge to a ski resort, from France to Japan, Vietnam, Congo, and Brazil." "Many of Perriand's pieces are now seen as classics of modern furniture. However, she saw her designs not merely as elegant objects but as part of a larger social program to extend the pleasures of modern life (what she called "l'art de vivre") to working-and middle-class people. Perriand sought to create a vibrant, accessible art that rejected bourgeois conventions while humanizing everyday environments. Her designs and her career also exemplify a radical rethinking of gender roles." "Charlotte Perriand: An Art of Living is the first book in English on this important figure in the history of twentieth-century design. Mary McLeod has assembled a collection of essays that elucidate Perriand's rich, diverse career and the ways in which it intersects with contemporary cultural currents, political movements, and changing social and economic conditions."--BOOK JACKET
Situating ( )
5 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 380 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The work by the six young architectural practices presented here offers myriad responses to contemporary site conditions, including poisoned soil, dead malls, abandoned freight containers, and industrial infrastructure. The projects also embrace new design methods and materials enabled by emerging technologies. The seventh in an annual series of publications, Situating reveals the ideals of young practices addressing a redefined and dynamic concept of site and demonstrates design methodologies that reimagine the role of the architect."--BOOK JACKET
Proof by Architectural League of New York ( )
7 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 349 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The six young firms presented in Proof demonstrates the complexity of architectural design as both process and product, where speculation and hypothesis lead to subsequent testing, confirming, checking, and rechecking. Their inventive works - ranging from products that blur the lines between craft and computation to human-body scaled interventions in the urban landscape to a design-build condominium compound where the architects function as owner, developer, architect, and contractor - are laboratories for testing unique and unexpected design strategies." "Proof is the ninth in an annual series of publications that feature exceptional work by the talented winners of the Architectural League's annual Young Architects competition."--Jacket
Foresight by Architectural League of New York ( )
9 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 323 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Resonance ( )
7 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 319 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Resonance is the tenth in an annual series of publications that features the best young practicing architects as selected by the Architectural League of New York in their annual Young Architects competition. Young architects practicing today are working with diversified tools as a result of technological advances in building methodologies, expanded communication networks, and cross-fertilization from other disciplines and industries. Competition entrants were asked to consider whether this increased the potential for architectural ideas to resonate with issues and concerns outside of their discipline. The competition winners--Gage/Clemenceau Architects, PellOverton Architecture R + D, Easton + Combs, Xu Tiantian, Project Open, and RVTR--each incorporated variations of the "resonance" to frame their portfolios and demonstrate the necessity for architecture to look outside its disciplinary boundaries for solutions to the global challenges facing the world today
