Building art : the life and work of Frank Gehry by Paul Goldberger( Book )

18 editions published between 2015 and 2017 in English and Chinese and held by 1,054 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From one of our foremost architectural writers: an engaging, brilliant exploration of the life and work of the most famous architect of our time, and one of the few architects ever to be widely admired by both critics and the general public. This first full-fledged critical biography of Frank Gehry presents and evaluates the work of a man whom fifty architects, critics, and historians assembled by Vanity Fair designated "the most important architect in the world." It discusses at length his major buildings: from his own house--an "exploded" Dutch Colonial in Santa Monica--to the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, which has almost single-handedly transformed contemporary architecture. It considers the work in light of Gehry's personal life: the influence of his immigrant grandparents, his two marriages, his close relationships to an unusual circle of celebrated clients and friends, his longtime therapist. It analyzes his carefully created "aw, shucks" persona and the intense ambition it masks; examines Gehry's anxieties about fame and how his "outsider" status as a Los Angeles architect allowed him to experiment in useful ways; and finally discusses how he thinks about and employs technology to change not just the way a building can look but the way architecture itself is practiced"--

Architects Leo Marmol and Ron Radziner give an account of the inner workings of their award-winning firm.

Maya Lin : topologies by Maya Ying Lin( Book )

4 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 324 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The first comprehensive monograph on the acclaimed American artist and architect, known for her environmental works and memorials that distill a tranquil yet texturally rich minimalism. Maya Lin is one of the most important public artists of this century. As an architecture student at Yale, Lin designed the Vietnam Veterans Memorial as a class project, entering it in the largest design competition in American history. Her winning proposal, a V-shaped wall of black stone etched with the names of 58,000 dead soldiers, has since become the most visited memorial in the nation's capital. This visually rich volume presents 50 projects from the last three decades that demonstrate the scope of Lin's creative process, featuring her own sketches and drawings and linked by her ideal of making a place for individuals within the landscape. With her environmental works Storm King Wavefield, Eleven-Minute Line (Sweden), and Pin River--Yangtze (Beijing), Lin maintains a balance between art and architecture, drawing inspiration from culturally diverse sources. From the moment she entered the national spotlight with her design for the Vietnam Memorial, Lin has been proposing ways of thinking and imagining that resist categories, genres, and borders"--Provided by publisher

"This volume celebrates the construction of the largest expansion in the history of the Art Institute of Chicago. Designed by Renzo Piano, principal of the Renzo Piano Building Workshop, with offices in Paris and Genoa, the Modern Wing adds a bold new Modernist structure to Chicago's downtown lakefront area, directly across the street from the successful Millennium Park and its major feature, the Jay Pritzker Pavilion designed by Frank Gehry." "The story of the Modern Wing - from its commissioning in 1999, to its groundbreaking in 2005, to its dedication in May 2009 - is told in this volume by the Art Institute's president and directory, James Cuno. In addition, well-known architecture critic Paul Goldberger places the Modern Wing in the context of the Art Institute's existing buildings and its many additions through the years. Throughout this book, the many remarkable features of the Modern Wing - its galleries and grand spaces, its "flying carpet" and its enclosed garden - are celebrated in the photographs of Paul Warchol."--Jacket

Hugh Newell Jacobsen, architect : works from 1993 to 2006 by Hugh Newell Jacobsen( Book )

4 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 232 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The work of Hugh Newell Jacobsen, one of America's most acclaimed architects, is infused with a rare sense of clarity and elegance. He his best known for his modern pavilion-based residences - compositions of simple, gabled forms that are rectangular in plan. Unlike other second-generation modernist architects who revised the iconic European houses of the 1920s or the American Shingle Style of the nineteenth century, Jacobsen draws on inspiration from the vernacular architecture of the American homestead. His grand yet intimately scaled pavilions recall the barns, detached kitchens, and smokehouses - the outbuildings of rural America." "This volume presents the architect's most recent work, including houses, university projects, and a winery, and offers a definitive look at the architect's mature skill and refined taste." "An introduction by architecture critic Paul Goldberger explores Jacobsen's significance in the world of architecture today."--Jacket
