Most widely held works by Vincent Scully
Modern architecture; the architecture of democracy by Vincent Scully( Book )

86 editions published between 1954 and 2005 in 5 languages and held by 3,190 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

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

33 editions published between 1955 and 1993 in English and held by 1,534 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 )

8 editions published between 1993 and 1996 in English and held by 924 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
