Archigram by Archigram (Group)( Book )

40 editions published between 1972 and 1999 in 3 languages and held by 560 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In late 1960, in various flats in Hampstead, a loose group of people started to meet: to criticize projects, to concoct letters to the press, to make competition projects, and generally prop one another up against the boredom of working in London architectural offices. The main British magazines of the time did not publish student work and Archigram was responding to this as much as to the sterility of the scene. The title Archigram came from the notion of a more simple and urgent item than a Journal, like a telegram or aerogramme - hence, "archi(tecture)-gram."" "This facsimile edition of a book originally published in 1972 is a chronicle of the work of Archigram as told by the members themselves. It includes material published in early issues of the Journal, as well as numerous essays, comics, collages, poems, and fantastical architecture projects. The book is updated with a new introduction from longtime member Mike "Spider" Webb."--Jacket

Drawing : the motive force of architecture by Peter Cook( Book )

30 editions published between 2007 and 2014 in English and held by 381 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Focusing on the creative and inventive significance of drawing for architecture, this book is a paean to the graphic by one of its greatest proponents, Sir Peter Cook. Thematically organised by chapter, Cook talks us through drawings as motive, strategy, vision, image, composition, expression, technique, surface, and fantasy. He provides us with amusing perceptive commentary at every turn, drawing our attention to some of the greatest and most intriguing drawings, ranging from Heath-Robinson, Hugh Ferris and Arthur Beresford Pite to Frank Gehry, Zaha Hadid, Ron Herron, Coop Himmlb(l)au, Bernard Tschumi and Lebbeus Woods."--Jacket
The city, seen as a garden of ideas by Peter Cook( Book )

10 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 259 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The City, Seen as a Garden of Ideas is a survey of Peter Cook's career-long project to reinvigorate the city as we know it. A series of meditations on contemporary urban conditions in cities as diverse as Tokyo, Edinburgh, Houston, and Santa Monica, this volume also functions as an informal memoir in which Cook reveals the influences and motivations behind his seminal works for Archigram in the 1960s and early '70s, as well as more recent projects such as the biomorphic Kunsthaus, a contemporary-art exhibition space in Graz, Austria (with Colin Fournier). Among the other works featured in this volume are the housing block at Lutzowplatz, Berlin; the competition-winning design for the museum at Bad Deutsches Altenberg, Austria (both in collaboration with Christine Hawley); and Super-Houston, with its self-guided cars and trucks."--Jacket

Architects Helen & Hard received international acclaim for their design of the spectacular and ecofriendly Norwegian Pavilion at the Shanghai Expo 2010. For the last fifteen years, Siv Helene Stangeland (*1966) and Reinhard Kropf (*1967) have worked on a wide range of topics'they tapped into the resources of the oil industry to use its software, structures, and material technology; analyzed the theory of planning processes; and redesigned industrially prefabricated solid wood elements to create new structural design possibilities. Their works range from recycling projects such as the Geopark, contributions to art exhibitions such as Manifesta 7, to the sophisticated timber architecture of the Pulpit Rock Mountain Lodge. This book highlights their philosophy of Relational Design, which combines a wide spectrum of human, environmental, material, and processual factors
