The house that Sam built : Sam Maloof and art in the Pomona Valley, 1945-1985 by Harold B Nelson ( Book )
2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 133 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The mid-twentieth-century woodworker Sam Maloof - one of the leading figures in the postwar studio furniture movement in America - was a voracious collector with an abiding generosity toward other artists. The home that he and his wife, Alfreda, created for themselves in Alta Loma, California - hand-built in large part by Maloof himself - was filled with art, and it provided a gathering place for the richly diverse and closely interconnected art, craft, and design community. "The house that Sam built", companion book to the exhibition at the Huntington, chronicles the development of Maloof's work from his earliest explorations of handcrafted furniture in the 1950s to 1985. Exhibition: The Huntington, San Marino (24.9.2011-30.1.2012)

Materializing the immaterial : the architecture of Wallace Cunningham by Joseph Giovannini ( Book )
1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This generously illustrated book assesses the architectural vision of Wallace Cunningham, the innovative and intuitive Southern California architect whose buildings reveal light and embody motion and spirituality. From small mountain cabins to urban townhouses, from waterfront residences to museums, Cunningham's structures respond poetically and functionally to the land--and to the cityscapes in which they are set. His works reflect the architect's belief that "buildings are not just visual... buildings need to radiate emotion." The book traces Cunningham's development from his youth in the architecturally rich city of Buffalo through his apprenticeship at Taliesen, where he absorbed Frank Lloyd Wright's theory of organic architecture, to his current practice in San Diego. Eighteen case studies of his projects, both built and unbuilt, illustrate how the architect opens his structures to sky, landscape, and views, and how he uses light to define and animate space. The book also includes a comprehensive record of Cunningham's works, publications, and exhibits."--Publisher's website
