"Vittorio Gregotti-the architect of Barcelona's Olympic Stadium, Milan's Arcimboldi Opera Theater, and Lisbon's Centro Cultural de BelTm, among other noted constructions-is not only a designer of international repute but an acclaimed theorist and critic. Architecture, Means and Ends is his practical and imaginative reflection on the role of the technical aspects of architectural design, both as part of the larger process of innovation and in relation to the mythic opposition between vision and construction." "Interweaving the seemingly irreconcilable concerns of aesthetics, meaning, and construction, Architecture, Means and Ends reflects Gregotti's overarching claim that buildings always have a symbolic cultural content. In this book, he argues that by making symbolic expression a primary objective in the design of a project, the designer will produce a practical aesthetic as well as an ethical solution. Architecture, Means and Ends embraces that philosophy and will appeal to those who are, like Gregotti, working at the intersection of the history of design, art criticism, and architectural theory."--BOOK JACKET

Architecture on display : on the history of the Venice Biennale of Architecture ( Book )
3 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 66 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Features an unprecedented series of interviews that editors Aaron Levy and William Menking have conducted with each of the living directors of the Venice Biennale for Architecture, including Vittorio Gregotti, Paolo Portoghesi, Francesco Dal Co, Kurt Foster, Massimiliano Fuksas, Kazuyo Sejima, and Deyan Sudjic, among others. The origins of the architecture biennale are generally traced to the 1970s, when it emerged from under the umbrella of the larger Venice Biennale, which was itself established in 1895. Since then it has become one of the most prestigious forums for architectural discourse today, and has served as a model for a range of international exhibitions. This book explores the biennale through conversations with the directors who established its particular discourse, as well as with the current president of the Venice Biennale, Paolo Barrata. These conversations do not seek to recapitulate the exhibitions themselves but rather explore the questions that these exhibitions raise, with the hope of offering a model for future curatorial endeavours

Achille Castiglioni : complete works by Sergio Polano ( Book )
8 editions published between 1984 and 1989 in 3 languages and held by 53 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Achille Castiglioni (1918 - 2002) was one of the most important and prolific designers of the twentieth century. This comprehensive monograph is the only detailed study of his remarkable career and includes a catalogue of his complete works from 1938 - 2000 spanning architecture and exhibition, interior and product design. An essay by Sergio Polano describes Castiglioni's important collaborations with his brothers Livio and Pier Giacomo and discusses his diverse range of projects including the spatial design work that dominated his early career as well as his later, better known product designs. Castiglioni's work is celebrated for its combination of technical innovation with an aesthetically-pleasing form, as demonstrated in his elegant Luminator floor lamp for Gilardi & Barzaghi (1955) and the distinctive Frisbi hanging light for Flos (1978). His designs also demonstrated wit - the 'readymade' furniture designs created with Pier Giacomo in 1957 incorporated tractor and bicycle seats into new stools. He created hundreds of pieces of furniture, lighting and products for a distinguished client list including Kartell, Knoll, Zanotta, Alessi and Siemens. With more than 800 photographs and drawings, this monograph does full justice to his designs, which won eight prestigious Compasso d'Oro prizes

"A partir des regards croisés entre les deux auteurs, ce livre parcourt un grand nombre de thèmes qui sont au cœur des problématiques actuelles liées aux permanences et aux transformations du territoire, de la ville, de l'architecture, donc de l'espace et de la pensée du projet, avec des points de vue qui ne cessent de traverser le passé et le présent, à l'aune d'un futur possible ; une iconographie riche prolonge les réflexions."--P.
