Donald Judd : architecture by Donald Judd( Book )

20 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and German and held by 297 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."--Jacket
Dagobert Peche and the Wiener Werkstätte( Book )

4 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 282 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Peche's extravagant use of materials, imaginative eclecticism, formal boldness, courageous playfulness, and decisive instinct are all indicative of his creative brillance." "This illustrated book aims to expand the understanding of Austrian arts and crafts at the turn of the twentieth century and to give Peche's work - which ranges from interior and exhibition design to furniture, fashion and textile design, ceramics, glass, metalwork, jewelry, and wallpaper - its proper due in this rich context."--Jacket

Visionary clients for new architecture by Peter Noever( Book )

12 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 223 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

Project-specific and programmatic texts from COOP HIMMELB(L)AU offer an in-depth look at the conceptual practices of the architects, whose work is some of the most innovative and important of our time

The discursive museum by Peter Noever( Book )

Debate between theorists and artists whether museums may be regarded as edifices of thought emancipated from visual and imaginary contents.

Art should recover its openness and its freedom to experiment
