"This Academy Award winner reveals the contentious origins of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial and tells the inspiring story of its creator, a 21-year-old Yale architecture student. Beating out some of the most prestigious architecture films from around the world, Lin's plan was selected from over 1,000 different designs, a giant victory for such a young and unknown artist. But little did Maya Lin know that her battle was just beginning. In Washington to defend her design, Lin came up against a mighty opposition, challenging indignant veterans and a hostile Congress to ultimately prevail with her emotional 'Wall.' And what began as one of the country's most bitterly disputed public monuments became one of the world's inspirational and frequently visited memorials. In this riveting and dramatic portrait, renowned filmmaker Freida Lee Mock combines interviews and archival footage to chronicle Lin's story -- from its origins, dominated by her David vs. Goliath battle over the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, to a career designing other memorials, always with an innate talent, and resolute courage."--Back of container

The shingle style and the stick style : architectural theory and design from Richardson to the origins of Wright by Vincent Scully( Book )

39 editions published between 1955 and 1993 in 3 languages and held by 983 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book has been widely acclaimed as the definitive study of the complex inspirations and cultural influences that were fused in the Shingle Style of wooden suburban and resort buildings of the period 1872 to 1889. Vincent Scully presents the published designs and the written statements of the architects, as well as contemporary criticisms of the buildings to analyze the development of the Shingle Style from Richardson's early work to Wright's first house in Oak Park. An analysis of the Colonial Revival is central to the work, which is now enhanced by the addition of an extensive related chapter on the Stick Style of the mid-century. A new preface has been added, and the bibliography and footnotes have been updated."--Page 4 of cover
The new urbanism : toward an architecture of community by Peter Katz( Book )

11 editions published between 1993 and 1996 in English and held by 931 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

New Urbanism addresses many of the critical issues of our time: the decline of America's cities, the rebuilding of its crumbling infrastructure, housing affordability, crime and traffic congestion. Proponents suggest alternatives to the present sprawl and isolation they see as the consequence of decades of poorly planned suburban growth. The designs of New Urbanism integrate housing, shops, workplaces, parks and civic facilities into close-knit communities that are both charming and functional. Walkabiity is key, but cars aren't excluded. The book presents 24 case study projects that offer simple yet compelling solutions to many frequently encountered planning problems
Modern architecture and other essays by Vincent Scully( Book )

13 editions published between 2002 and 2005 in English and held by 881 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This extensively illustrated and elegantly designed volume distills Vincent Scully's incalculable contribution. Neil Levine, a former student of Scully's, has selected twenty essays that reveal the breadth and depth of Scully's work from the 1950s through the 1990s. The pieces are included for their singular contribution to our understanding of modern architecture as well as their relative unavailability to current readers. Levine offers a perceptive overview of Scully's distinguished career and introduces each essay, skillfully setting the scholarly and cultural scene. The selections address almost all of modern architecture's major themes and together go a long way toward defining what constitutes the contemporary experience of architecture and urbanism. Each is characteristically Scully - provocative, precise in detail and observation, and written with passionate clarity. They document Scully's seminal views on the relationship between the natural and the built environment and trace his progressively intense concern with the fabric of the street and of our communities. The essays also highlight Scully's engagement with the careers of so many of the twentieth century's most significant architects, from Frank Lloyd Wright and Le Corbusier to Louis Kahn and Robert Venturi."--Jacket

13 editions published between 1974 and 1984 in English and held by 587 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Distinguished by long, sloping gables, horizontal lines, and a continuous shingle covering on the exterior, the Shingle Style's essential objective was the creation of expanding, flowing space. The Shingle Style embodied intellectual pluralism and cultural democracy - ideals fundamental to American belief and developed quickly and richly. After a period of reaction against the Shingle Style, it was revitalized, finding its first fully renewed expression in 1959 in a design for a beach house by Robert Venturi. Vincent Scully details this reemergence, revealing the complex and crucial role of influence in the shaping of this movement. 134 black-and-white illustrations."--
