Richard Neutra and the search for modern architecture : a biography and history by Thomas S Hines( Book )

36 editions published between 1982 and 2005 in English and held by 1,044 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The story of Richard Neutra's life is, in many ways, the story of modern architecture since Neutra experienced in his own lifetime the buoyant struggles of the movement's early years and the heady successes of its mid-century ascendancy. By interweaving Neutra's life with the history of modernism, this definitive study depicts architecture's struggle to find new meaning in the twentieth century." "Born in Vienna in 1892, Neutra moved to the United States in 1923 and quickly became, in the words of the 1932 Museum of the Modern Art catalogue, "the leading modern architect of the West Coast ... second only to Frank Lloyd Wright in international stature." His work was distinguished by the way it embraced nature, felicitously adapting the standard modernist elements - ribbon windows, flat roofs, built-in furniture, glass walls - to the California environment. The lightness and skeletal strength in his buildings reified the essence of the International Style. Neutra's favorite building materials were steel, stucco, concrete, wood, and glass, and his basic structure was the simple, timeless post and beam, with cantilevered roof slabs extending into space. As a follower of Wright and of the new architecture of Europe, Neutra bridged, perhaps better than any other modernist, the frequently polarized worlds of Taliesin and the Bauhaus. A lifelong student of the psychological, physiological, and ecological dimensions of architecture, Neutra's credo became the title of his most influential book, Survival Through Design." "Thomas Hines analyzes not only Neutra's contributions to modernism but also the architect's relationships with his mentors and contemporaries, including Otto Wagner, Adolf Loos, Erich Mendelsohn, Walter Gropius, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, Rudolph Schindler, and Wright. He also explores Neutra's interaction with clients, among them Philip and Leah Lovell, who commissioned Neutra's famous steel-framed Health House, and film director Josef von Sternberg, for whom Neutra built a modern aluminum, moat-enclosed villa, later acquired by novelist Ayn Rand. It was a measure of Neutra's fame that Edgar Kaufmann, who had commissioned Wright's Fallingwater house of 1936, chose Neutra ten years later to design his desert house in Palm Springs."--Jacket

Irving Gill and the architecture of reform : a study in modernist architectural culture by Thomas S Hines( Book )

10 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 394 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hines also explores the social dimensions of Gill's work. His interest in the contemporary Progressive Movement, particularly its ethos of social, economic, and gender equality, was the wellspring for a series of projects for middle- and lower-income residents as well as for an intense concern with the functionality and convenience of his domestic designs." "Illustrated throughout with black-and-white archival photographs and featuring twelve pages of full-color plates, Irving Gill and the Architecture of Reform presents a comprehensive analysis of the oeuvre of a "rediscovered" modern master."--Jacket

Gregory Ain by Anthony Denzer( Book )

7 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 105 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gregory Ain (1908-88) argued that "architecture is a social art" that should serve the "common people," and he demonstrated that belief as one of America's most prominent modern architects in the 1930s, '40s, and '50s. Ain helped pioneer several design strategies for houses and housing patterns-such as the open kitchen and the greenbelt- that would become part of the American vernacular. Until now, there had not been a comprehensive study of his career, and he had been, to some extent, forgotten. This book, the product of six years of research, brings new light to Ain's workds and ideas, showing that many of his critical contributions remain as relevant and potent as ever. The book also reveals that Ain's architectural priorities were tied to left-wing politics: many of hsi clients were Communist Party members, and Ain attended meetings himself. In short, there is an extensive unreported history of a Communist subculture in architecture in Los Angeles, which was organized around Ain. The 'Red Scare' of the 1950s effectively ended this underground movement, and Ain pursued a second career in academia. According to Thomas S. Hines, "In Denzer's skillful hands, Gregory Ain finally has gotten his due."
