The four elements of architecture and other writings by Gottfried Semper( Book )

10 editions published between 1989 and 2010 in English and held by 437 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Gottfied Semper was the most important German theorist of the nineteenth century. From his first published essay on Greek polychromy in 1834 to his final lecture on the origin of architectural styles in 1869, Semper persistently endeavoured to fashion a comprehensive architectural theory explaining the meaning and transformational nature of architectural form. The breadth and richness of his ideas, both applauded and opposed at the turn of the twentieth century, proved enormously influential in the development of modern theory."--Jacket
Style in the technical and tectonic arts, or, Practical aesthetics by Gottfried Semper( Book )

12 editions published between 2004 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 348 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The enduring influence of the architect Gottfried Semper (1803-79) derives less from his monumental buildings in Dresden, Zurich, and Vienna than from his Style in the Technical and Tectonic Arts (1860-63). Semper's landmark survey of the motives giving rise to the technical arts (textiles, ceramics, carpentry, masonry) explores the symbolic and material preconditions of style. An extended inquiry into the inner principles of artistic form, this work radically altered the intellectual field for aesthetics and art history and stands as a vital document in the consolidation of modern architectural theory."--Jacket
