12 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 184 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"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."--BOOK JACKET

Custom and innovation : John Miller + Partners by Miller & Partners Colquhoun ( Book )
2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 96 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
John Miller + Partners is responsible for some of the most highly regarded museum and university projects of the past 25 years, such as the Queen's Building and the extension to Tate Britain, as well as schemes for the Fitzwilliam Museum and the National Portrait Gallery. Custom and Innovation: John Miller + Partners takes a close look at the architects' body of work, and examines its working practices, such as John Miller's indebtedness to Modernism and its proponents, such as Le Corbusier. Further, the book sets out the practice's departure from its precedents by showing its work to be wholly contemporary and of its moment. Fascinating texts by respected architects and writers elucidate the firm's contribution to modern architecture. Kenneth Frampton, well known for his writing on twentieth century architecture, looks at the work of John Miller in the context of the museum building, and other typologies he works with. Robert Maxwell, Emeritus Professor of Architecture at Princeton, writes extensively on architecture, combining consultancy and architectural criticism, and here looks at the historical context of John Miller + Partners' work. Finally, Deyan Sudjic, Director of the Design Museum, London, focuses on the early work produced by John Miller through his student days to his partnership with Alan Colquhoun
Ancient wisdom and modern knowhow : learning to live with uncertainty by Robert Maxwell ( Book )
3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 75 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 Dürer, 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
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 66 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
