Donald Judd : architecture by Donald Judd( Book )
16 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and German and held by 289 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Donald Judd was one of the leading artists of the second half of the twentieth century. His "specific objects" - which he refused to call sculpture - represent a radical and revolutionary use of space, scale, and materials. By contrast, the primary concern in his many drafts and designs for architecture and furniture is utility, although the formal relationship to his artistic objects is plain." "All facets of Judd's work converge in Marfa, West Texas, where he systematically turned an abandoned fort into one of the world's major ensembles of contemporary art. This book uses drawings, plans, and photographs of Marfa to illustrate Judd's radical approach to architecture and design, and to demonstrate the meticulous attention he paid to the settings for his installations. Photographs of Judd's aluminum and wooden furniture series and examples of his plywood tables, chairs, and shelves display his stringent application of aesthetic brevity and precision in form and material." "First published in German in 1991, this revised and expanded edition contains additional illustrations and several essays that have not previously appeared in English. Donald Judd's original contribution, an anti-war essay written during the 1991 Gulf War, is complemented by a second essay on the relationship between art and architecture."--BOOK JACKET
Dagobert Peche and the Wiener Werkstätte ( Book )
4 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 276 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Dagobert Peche (1887-1923) was one of the key figures of the Austrian arts and crafts movement. Along with Josef Hoffmann and Koloman Moser, Peche determined the character of the Wiener Werkstatte with his designs. Hoffmann, who first hired Peche as his assistant but was later strongly influenced by him, wrote after Peche's death in 1923: "Dagobert Peche was Austria's greatest genius in ornamentation since the days of the Baroque...All of Germany has experienced a new stylistic epoch thanks to Peche's designs." The contribution made by Peche to decorative arts is now being given the critical attention it deserves, especially against the backdrop of postmodernism

Visionary clients for new architecture by Peter Noever( Book )
13 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 219 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Instead of architects talking about their designs, this volume puts clients in the spotlight who are responsible for the renewal of architectural projects: Thomas Krens, director of the Guggenheim Foundation who contracted Frank O Gehry for the new Guggenheim museum in Bilbao and Rolf Fehlbaum, director of the Vitra company, including a Design museum. There generally is a tricky balance of power between the architect en the client. Considering that standardized construction methods dominate the world, these examples of succesful collaboration provide an alternative to the usual way of commissioning a building. A whole chapter is dedicated to new museum buildings, now a days represented like a work of art itself

These and many others are presented through photographs, renderings, planning materials and sketches and offer the reader a look at realized structures as well as construction projects that are still in the planning stages. Texts from Jeffrey Kipnis, Sylvia Lavin and Peter Noever highlight the relationships between the specific work of COOP HIMMELB(L)AU and architecture, history, literature, film and art.
