Sir John Soane : an English architect, an American legacy( Visual )

2 editions published between 2005 and 2014 in English and held by 180 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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. Among them, Henry Cobb, Michael Graves, Philip Johnson, Richard Meier, Robert Stern, Denise Scott Brown and Robert Venturi, all acknowledge their debt to Soane and his idiosyncratic reinterpretations of the architecture of antiquity. This film investigates the influence of antiquity on Soane by following his Grand Tour footsteps through Rome and Sicily, as well as the ways in which his stripped-down classical style helped guide American architects out of the strictures of Modernism. Exquisite footage of Soane's masterpieces, including of his residence museum in London and the Dulwich Picture Gallery, is intercut with detailed views of works by the Americans, including Philip Johnson's Guest House, Richard Meier's Getty Museum, Michael Graves' own residence and Newark Museum renovation, Henry Cobb's Payson Building of the Portland Museum of Art as well as the Sainsbury Wing of the National Gallery in London, designed by Robert Venturi and Denise Scott Brown. Through interviews and guided tours, these architects, along with architectural historians, Charles Jencks and Christopher Woodward, offer unique insight into the ways in which their works refract the genius of Soane.

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

16 editions published between 1978 and 2016 in Spanish and held by 64 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

The architectural partnership of Robert Venturi and Denise Scott Brown has long been known for its preeminent position in the theory and practice of architecture. Their writings, including Complexity and Contradiction in Architecture and Learning from Los Vegas, have profoundly directed architectural thought in the twentieth century. The firm's built work - in its creative understanding of history and the everday environment, its emphasis on multiculturalism and multimedia, and especially its considerationof iconography versus abstraction - has been equally influential. This comprehensive monograph on Venturi, Scott Brown & Associates includes more than eighty buildings and projects: urban plans and development studies; important civic buildings such as the Sainsbury Wing of London's National Gallery; and a great number of projects at universities across the United States. Also presented are spectacular renovations for the Frank Furness library building at the University of Pennsylvania and Harvard's Memorial Hall and designs for houses, exhibitions, fabrics, furniture, and decorative items. The catalog, written by the architects, focuses on important aspects of their practice in the late 1980s and the 1990s, notably the juxtaposition of a "hype" sensibility in decoration - manifested in large-scale LED signs and colorful supergraphics - and a generic architecture. The introductory essay, by Stanislaus von Moos, discusses five major themes in Venturi and Scott Brown's architecture: its dialogue with their hometown, Philadelphia, as both a national shrine and a center of architectural innovation; the importance of the American campus as a model for planning and design; organicism as a source of their design theory; the role of realism and abstraction in the firm's architecture; and the Venturis' recent interest in Japan and its traditions. Finally, in an interview conducted by von Moos and Mary McLeod, the architects comment on Las Vegas today, the role of feminism and mannerism in architecture, and the importance of the ordinary. -- from front flap
