The Terragni atlas : built architectures by Attilio Alberto Terragni( Book )

14 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 296 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Published on the occasion of the centenary of the birth of Giuseppe Terragni, this 'Atlas' is a new and original volume presenting sixteen works built by the Como-born architect between 1925 and 1941, with previously unpublished photos, original writings and polemical articles by Terragni himself dealing with the reasoning and fundamental themes underlying his work. For the first time, this volume allows readers to conduct a direct analysis of the masterpieces built by Giuseppe Terragni and to reasses the significance of his oeuvre. Starting out with a comparison of oroginal images and contemporary photographs, the 'Atlas' is organised on three levels given that the works of Giuseppe Terragni simultaneously occupy different worlds and express different aspirations: the first level for the contemporary texts, the second for the photographs and the third for the original texts, thus bringing together in a single volume contemporaneity, simultaneity and historical documentation"--Page 17

TEDTalks : Daniel Libeskind - 17 Words of Architectural Inspiration( Visual )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 173 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Architecture is not based on concrete and steel and the elements of the soil," says Daniel Libeskind. "It's based on wonder." In this TEDTAlk, the renowned architect shares 17 words - including "raw," "risky," and "radical" - that underlie his vision for architecture and offer inspiration for any bold creative pursuit. Libeskind, perhaps best known for his controversial design for the rebuilt World Trade Center, talks about architecture reflecting the mood of a society, the emotionality of cities, and his mission to create spaces that are vibrant, pluralistic, and transformative

Berlin's Jewish Museum-- a personal tour with Daniel Libeskind by Michael Blackwood( Visual )

11 editions published between 2000 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 139 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This extraordinary haunting building, a zig-zag form reflecting an invisible matrix of addresses of Jewish Berliners who once lived in the area, is Daniel Libeskind's first commission. It took ten years to build, and it has become an integral part of the cityscape, attracting vast numbers of visitors and signaling a new era of Jewish-German history. Libeskind is questioned by Alan Riding, New York Times journalist, as he takes him through the building, which was initially intended as a simple annex to the adjacent baroque Berlin Museum. His concept for the new wing, though, was intentionally so incompatible with the main building that there was no way to connect them aboveground. To arrive in the Jewish Museum, visitors must enter through the 18th-century building and then descend to underground passageways and "voids," which in themselves give a strong sense of the tragic fate of the German-Jewish population during the Hitler years, even without any exhibitions in place. During this walking tour, Libeskind lays bare to Riding the entire architectural and philosophical concept of the building, an absolutely unique construct of innovation, intellectual prowess, and direct allusions to the lives and work of Berlin's pre-Nazi population of Jewish literati and artists, such as Walter Benjamin and Arnold Schönberg

Daniel Libeskind : Denver Art Museum, Frederic C. Hamilton Building by Muffie Dunn( Visual )

2 editions published between 2008 and 2012 in English and held by 49 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Architect Daniel Libeskind first gained world-wide attention when his haunting, zig-zag-shaped Jewish Museum opened in Berlin in 1999. After his dramatic urban design plan for Ground Zero was selected by city and state officials in 2002, Libeskind became a household name in America. Now with his first work of architecture to be realized in the U.S., an addition to the Denver Art Museum, the American public has a chance to examine his unconventional talents. In this filmed tour of the Denver Art Museum's Hamilton Building, Libeskind explains his unusual, titanium-clad, shard-like building. The dazzling geometry we see on the exterior is reflected inside to provide spectacular space and arresting angles for viewing contemporary art. The sculptural building of fractured planes insouciantly claims its status as a major landmark in American museum architecture"--Container
