Alison and Peter Smithson : from the house of the future to a house of today by Alison Margaret Smithson ( Book )
9 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 182 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Striving to adapt the progressive ideas of the pre-war Modern Movement to the specific human needs of post-war reconstruction, Alison and Peter Smithson were among the most influential and controversial architects of the latter half of the twentieth century. As younger members of CIAM and as founding members of Team 10, they were at the heart of the debate on the future course of modern architecture, and by their polemics and designs laid the foundations for the New Brutalism and the 1960's Pop Art Movement. Alison and Peter Smithsons' reputation for controversy rather overshadowed the work at the heart of their architectural philosophy and practice: their designs for houses and their preoccupation with 'dwelling'. Although great admirers of Le Corbusier, they rejected his idea of the dwelling as a 'machine for living'. To the Smithsons, a house was a particular place, which should be suited to its location and able to meet the ordinary requirements of life and to accommodate its inhabitants' individual patterns of use. This book examines the evolution of their approach to the everyday 'art of inhabitation'. It does so by extensively documenting most of their designs for individual dwellings, especially their optimistic House of the Future of 1956 and the series of renovations of and additions to the fairy tale-like 'Hexenhaus' in Germany from the late 1980s onward. Included are essays by Beatriz Colomina, Dirk van den Heuvel and Max Risselada, plus a selections of texts by Alison and Peter Smithson"--Bookjacket
Team 10 : 1953-81, in search of a utopia of the present by Team 10 ( Book )
6 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 171 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This book offers an abundantly illustrated survey of Team 10 meetings, events and project documentation, as well as additional keys to the Team 10 discourse. Running parallel to the chronological narratives is an evaluation of the legacy of Team 10, with essays by leading scholars on the origins and position of Team 10 within the history of architecture. These writings examine crossovers with visual and non-Western cultures and shed light on architectural and urban solutions formulated in response to the problems of post-war modernity. A third and final section, which is devoted to a series of interviews with former Team 10 members, provides a unique portrait of the group and its meetings."--BOOK JACKET
Alison & Peter Smithson : a critical anthology by Peter Smithson ( Book )
14 editions published between 2004 and 2011 in English and Spanish and held by 137 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Alison (1928-1993) and Peter Smithson (1923-2003), two of the most influential and controversial architects of the latter half of the twentieth century, strove to adapt the progressive ideas of the pre-war modern movement to the specific human needs of the period of post-war reconstruction. As younger members of CIAM (Congrès Internationaux d'Architecture Moderne), and as founding members of Team 10, they were at the heart of the debate on the future course of modern architecture. The uncompromising modernity of their Hunstanton Secondary Modern School (1949-1954) heralded the Smithsons' role as the leading exponents of the New Brutalism and the Pop Art movement of the 1960s.In this book Risselada has collected together the most important published essays about the career of this partnership of British architects, from early contributions by Rayner Banham, Philip Johnson, Kenneth Frampton, and Peter Cook, to more recent texts by Peter Eisenmann, Christine Boyer, Beatriz Colomina, and Luisa Hutton

In the work of both architects there is creative tension between two specific attitudes. On the one hand, their work is concerned with the autonomy of architectural means. On the other, each architect tries, in his own way, to place his work in a context. These contexts frequently overlap. To Loos, the starting departure is traditional craftsmanship, the task being socially determined. In Le Corbusier's case, the division of labour between design and realization forms the core of architectural process. The assignment and means of realizing it are formulated in terms of new technologies. The issue is further complicated by a consideration of the cultural backgrounds of the architects in question. Space embraces the notion of continuity and distance, as well as the idea of enclosure. Their respective vocabularies, Raum and espace, may have partly formed their visions. This revised and updated edition looks anew at the respective merits of two giants of modern architecture. As well as featuring writings by the architects themselves, the book illustrates the evolution of the work of Loos and Le Corbusier, with detailed reference to their domestic projects, ranging from the Strasser House (1919) to the Last House (1932), and from Maison Domino (1915) to Villa Savoye (1932). With its excellent overviews and analyses it will give the reader a deeper insight into the motivations of these two architects, so near yet so far away
