"Born in 1923, graduating from the School of Architecture at Liverpool University in 1950, James Stirling ranks as one of the most interesting figures to emerge in Britain in the second half of the twentieth century. His activity lasted from 1950 until 1992, the year of his death. His work exemplified a continuous and undogmatic research, in which modern architecture is constantly redefined through the attention given to its social content and its physical context."--Jacket

Ancient wisdom and modern knowhow : learning to live with uncertainty by Robert Maxwell( Book )

5 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 120 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Adept at moving between the examination of modern and contemporary architecture, art, literature and music, Robert Maxwell is a respected scholar whose critical writings articulate the role architecture plays in contemporary culture. In Ancient Wisdom And Modern Knowhow, Maxwell considers the notion of 'doubt' encountered by the modern architect. In ten chapters that draw upon writers and topics as diverse and engaging as Andre Malraux and his concept of the Musée Imaginaire, Colin Rowe and his exploration of "Mannerism in Modern Architecture" as well as Rowe's book with Fred Koetter, Collage City, and examining works by artists including Albrecht Du?rer, Picasso and Duchamp and architects including James Stirling, Zaha Hadid, Frank Gehry and Daniel Libeskind, Maxwell steps effortlessly through a range of ideas and concepts, to create an engaging and provocative thesis. Ancient Wisdom and Modern Knowhow is the second of two new books to be published by Artifice books on architecture by Professor Robert Maxwell, Emeritus Professor of Architecture at Princeton University. The first, A Few Years of Writing Interspersed with some Facts of Life, was published in autumn 2012

Stirling + Wilford : American buildings( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 77 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

James Stirling and Michael Wilford realised a significant body of work during their partnership. Considered one of the most important international architectural practices of the twentieth century, Stirling and Wilford made an exceptional contribution to contemporary architecture. Young, radical and eccentric, their work rejected the prevalent orthodoxy of the International Style, revisiting instead the early masters of heroic Modernism and achieving legendary status amongst a younger generation of architects. With early work in the UK and then Europe, from the late 1970s the practice designed buildings at four American Universities: Harvard, Rice, Cornell and UC Irvine, as well as a number of unbuilt projects. The Arthur M Sackler Museum at Harvard University, 1984, retains an iconic status, and straddles the postmodern and classical vocabulary that Stirling and Wilford employed at the Neue Staatsgalerie in Stuttgart, 1984, and No 1 Poultry, completed in 1997, after Stirling's death in 1992. Yet, despite the significance of these projects, until now, the contribution of the practice's work in the United States to the development of late twentieth century architecture has never been fully appraised.Through texts by eminent contributors including Kenneth Frampton, Robert Maxwell and Anthony Vidler, Stirling and Wilford American Buildings reassesses the importance of this body of work, establishing the legacy of the later American work of one of the twentieth century's most influential architectural practices
A few years of writing : interspersed with some facts of life by Robert Maxwell( Book )

3 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 77 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With a body of work firmly at the heart of architectural theory and discourse, Robert Maxwell is undoubtedly one of the most respected architectural writers and educators of recent times. Emeritus Professor of Architecture at Princeton University, Robert Maxwell is a scholar known worldwide for critical writing that looks at modern and contemporary architecture in relation to our wider culture, including art, literature and music. A Few Years of Writing: Interspersed with Some Facts of Life brings together a collection of over 30 of Maxwell's writings from the late twentieth century to the present, through which are woven events and occasions from his own diary that expand on debates in the world of architecture throughout the period. Texts include "Richard Rogers: an Evaluation", first published in Casabella in February 1994; "Sounds and Sweet Airs at Stuttgart", a review of the Music School at Stuttgart, in the RIBA Journal in October 1996; an obituary of Philip Johnson in The Architectural Review, in March 2005; and "Eisenman: The Formal Basis of Modern Architecture", in Building Design in September 2006. This engaging collection, at once intimate and autobiographical, insightful and perceptive, as well as critical and theoretical, results in a rich description of the culture of architecture across two decades towards the close of the last century and during the early years of the present. A Few Years of Writing: Interspersed with Some Facts of Life is the first of two books of Robert Maxwell's writing to be published by Artifice, with the second coming out in Spring 2013

Michael Wilford: Buildings and Projects 1992-2012 is written by Robert Maxwell, Emeritus Professor of Architecture at Princeton University, and author and academic Professor Anthony Vidler, Dean of Cooper Union School of Architecture. Original writing by Michael Wilford is also included, presenting the architect's work, together with his partners Laurence Bain, Russell Bevington, and Manuel Schupp, in detail from both a historical and theoretical perspective. Michael Wilford: Buildings and Projects 1992-2012 features well-known projects including The Lowry and British Embassy in Berlin alongside hitherto largely unpublished projects such as The Singapore National Arts Center and Abando Transport Interchange in Bilbao. In 1960 Michael Wilford joined the practice created by James Stirling and James Gowan in 1956. The Stirling/Wilford partnership was established in 1971 and continued until James Stirling's death in 1992, after which Michael Wilford continued the trajectory of the earlier work, whilst creating a clear identity post-Stirling. Michael Wilford's work has gained international renown and includes significant public buildings such as performing art centres, art galleries, business headquarters, museums and libraries located around the world. Continuing in the tradition of the 'Black' and 'White' books (James Stirling Buildings and Projects 1950-1974, and James Stirling Michael Wilford Buildings and Projects 1975-1992), produced by James Stirling and Michael Wilford in 1975 and 1994, Michael Wilford: Buildings and Projects 1992-2012 brings up to date Wilford's legacy with respect to contemporary British and international architecture
