The architecture of the well-tempered environment by Reyner Banham ( Book )
36 editions published between 1962 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,300 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Reyner Banham was a pioneer in arguing that technology, human needs, and environmental concerns must be considered an integral part of architecture. No historian before him had so systematically explored the impact of environmental engineering on the design of buildings and in the minds of architects. In this revision of his classic work, Banham has added considerable new material on the use of energy, particularly solar energy, in human environments. Included in the new material are discussions of Indian pueblos and solar architecture, the Centre Pompidou and other high-tech buildings, and the environmental wisdom of many current architectural vernaculars."--From back cover
Los Angeles; the architecture of four ecologies by Reyner Banham ( Book )
52 editions published between 1971 and 2009 in English and Spanish and held by 1,259 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Reyner Banham examined the built environment of Los Angeles in a way no architectural historian before him had done, looking with fresh eyes at its manifestations of popular taste and industrial ingenuity, as well as its more traditional modes of residential and commercial building. His construct of "four ecologies" examined the ways Angelenos relate to the beach, the freeways, the flatlands, and the foothills. Banham delighted in this mobile city and identified it as an exemplar of the posturban future." http://catdir.loc.gov/catdir/description/ucal042/00064850.html
