Gnostic architecture by Eric Owen Moss( Book )

8 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gnostic architecture is not about faith in a movement, a methodology, a process, a technique, or a technology. It is a strategy for keeping architecture in a perpetual state of motion. Eric Owen Moss is a Los Angeles-based architect. After completing degrees at the University of California at Berkeley and Harvard University, he opened his Los Angeles office in 1973. Moss has lectured throughout the United States and abroad, and has exhibited his work worldwide. He is a member of the board of directors at the Southern California Institute of Architecture and has held teaching chairs at Harvard and Yale Universities. He was one of four American architects selected to exhibit at the 1996 Venice Biennale, and his buildings have been the subjects of numerous monographs. Recently completed buildings include the 100-meter-long Samitaur office block, headquarters for Eastman Kodak in Los Angeles (1996), and the Pittard Sullivan building (1997), headquarters of an international digital design firm. He is currently designing a high-rise tower in Los Angeles, a new town in Spain, and his stealth building is under construction. The definitive statement of Eric Owen Moss' design theory, Gnostic Architecture seeks to expand the discussion of contemporary architecture beyond debates over style or ideology. It does so, however, not by turning to conventional site analysis or fashionable intellectual trends for support, but by emphasizing the architect's personal approach to the act of building. Moss focuses on fundamental questions that face architects who build critically. Gnosticism, he argues, allows the architect to transcend the contradictions encountered along the path that is the practice of architecture, so that the architect may rely on internally derived insights. According to Moss, the measure of an architect's integrity is finally dependent on the architect's own introverted compass and not on external factors. The book, with its unique, trapezoidal shape and suggestive visual character, gives tangible material expression to Moss' poetic sense of the personalized intersection of architecture and culture. -- from dust jacket

Eric Owen Moss : the uncertainty of doing by Paola Giaconia( Book )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Considered one of the leading architects in American experimental architecture, Eric Owen Moss is also one of the most interesting figures in the contemporary international debate." "It is impossible, by examining his work chronologically, to find an evolutionary logic to it. Even within the so-called L.A. School, Moss is an unusual and atypical character who, since his early works, stands out from the other protagonists of Los Angeles architecture of his own generation, which immediately followed Frank O. Gehry's early works. We can consider the series of constructions he completed in Culver City as one of the most successful experiments in building the contemporary city piece by piece, and surely one of the urban planning attempts which best relates to its original context." "From Culver City, Eric Moss has been able to slowly emerge at the end of the 1990s and to develop a series of projects in other American and European locations. This volume presents his long and intense voyage that has always been deeply rooted in advanced experimentation and unconventional progress."--Jacket
