"Japanese architect Tadao Ando is known throughout the world for his exquisite compositions: small, carefully wrought houses; striking museums and cultural facilities. Ando's distinctive palette of materials - concrete, stone, wood, and glass - sets his work apart, as does his thoughtful consideration of the palette of materials provided by nature. Covering works built over the course of more than twenty-five years, Tadao Ando: Light and Water presents the architect's masterful meditations on the physical and metaphysical qualities of existence." "Ando selected for inclusion the thirty-five projects that best embody his belief that the interplay with nature defines architecture and the passage of time molds architecture. All are shown in spectacular, specially commissioned color photography. Among the major recent works are the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth in Texas; the Komyo-ji Temple in Saijo, Japan; the meditation space for UNESCO in Paris; the Pulitzer Foundation for the Arts in St. Louis; and the Armani/Teatro in Milan. Also included are some of Ando's most important and well-known earlier works, including the Church of the Water in Hokkaido, the Church of the Light in Ibaraki, and a series of houses throughout Japan."--BOOK JACKET

"The work of Hugh Newell Jacobsen, one of America's most acclaimed architects, is infused with a rare sense of clarity and elegance. He his best known for his modern pavilion-based residences - compositions of simple, gabled forms that are rectangular in plan. Unlike other second-generation modernist architects who revised the iconic European houses of the 1920s or the American Shingle Style of the nineteenth century, Jacobsen draws on inspiration from the vernacular architecture of the American homestead. His grand yet intimately scaled pavilions recall the barns, detached kitchens, and smokehouses - the outbuildings of rural America." "This volume presents the architect's most recent work, including houses, university projects, and a winery, and offers a definitive look at the architect's mature skill and refined taste." "An introduction by architecture critic Paul Goldberger explores Jacobsen's significance in the world of architecture today."--BOOK JACKET

"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."--BOOK JACKET

Humannature : the figures of Michele Oka Doner by Michele Oka Doner ( Book )
2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 120 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Reaching back to nature primordial and coming to life through existential transformation, Michele Oka Doner's sculpted figures act as human archetypes. They share the inevitability and undeniability of a natural order. The artist pares back the skin, focusing on the components that convey life. The structure of the veins and inner anatomy of the body are re-formed into rich textures of coral, roots, rock and bark that express the essential geology of the structure of the earth. HumanNature begins with her tattooed porcelain torsos, created in the mid-1960s, and culminates with the visceral power of her more recent life-size cast bronze figures. Designed by award-winning graphic designer Massimo Vignelli, this survey includes an essay by distinguished contemporary art historian Donald Kuspit."--Jacket
