Materializing the immaterial : the architecture of Wallace Cunningham by Joseph Giovannini( Book )

4 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 262 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

This handsome volume highlights each of the artists in the gift, including Carl Andre, Jasper Johns, Willem de Kooning, Ed Ruscha, Lorna Simpson, Kiki Smith, Andy Warhol, and other seminal figures. Much more than simply a record of the pledge, Legacy: The Emily Fisher Landau Collection showcases the best of the art made in the United States during the past five decades. Informative entries, written by the museum's curators and other scholars, cover all works in the gift and are accompanied by 125 stunning color plates. Also included are an essay on the nature of collecting by Donna De Salvo and a full-color checklist of the entire gift."--Publisher's website
Sections through a practice : Cesar Pelli & associates by Joseph Giovannini( Book )

11 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 218 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Builders of the Petronas Towers in Kuala Lumpur, the tallest building in the world at the date of its completion--though Chicago's Sears Tower stills wins in the "highest occupied floor" category--Cesar Pelli & Associates is one of the world's most important architectural firms today. Established in 1977, the firm is a full-service architectural practice of some 80 persons and has worked with corporate, government and private clients to design major public spaces, museums, airports, laboratories, performing arts centers, academic buildings, hotels, office and residential towers and mixed-use projects throughout the world. Unlike the work of other notable 20th-century architects, the work of Cesar Pelli is not constrained by a personal style or a signature, as any viewer can ascertain through careful consideration of his built structures. Rather, each project is designed in keeping with its intentions and specificities--hence the Islamic-influenced geometrically polygonal plan of the Petronas Towers in Malaysia (and its 32,000 windows!)

"Located in New York City since 1972, Peter L. Gluck and Partners is known for its integrity of design and sensitivity to the relationship between architectural form and context. Rather than specializing in a particular building type or specific architectural style, the firm provides appropriate responses to often difficult and conflicting requirements, and has designed buildings throughout the United States, ranging from houses, schools, religious buildings, and community centers to hotels, corporate interiors, university buildings, and historic restorations. This extensive overview of the firm's practice includes architectural drawings, digital and physical models, and photographs of finished projects."--Jacket
Mehrdad Yazdani by Mehrdad Yazdani( Book )

5 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 126 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For most of his design career, the Iranian-born, Harvard-educated Mehrdad Yazdani has practiced at the intersection of the large office and the small one, producing plans for corporate and institutional clients whose design expectations have seldom been challenged. All corporate architectural firms proselytize 'good design', but Yazdani brings to practice at Cannon Design, where he is a design principal and the director of the Yazdani Studio, a particular vision." "Yazdani came of age aesthetically during the 1980s, as architecture schools were emerging from the blandishments of Post Modernist historicity. He did not, however, resort to the obvious fall-back position of a retro-Modernist, but pursued instead a philosophical calling that emphasizes difference over sameness, diversity over unity." "Since the outset of his professional career, Mehrdad Yazdani has won the respect of critics and clients alike for his imaginative approach to the design of public and institutional buildings. This first monograph of his work presents a collection of 23 projects, large and small, build and un-built, illustrating Yazdani's responsiveness to issues of public engagement, program complexity, and site context, and addresses the role that drawing and painting have played in guiding and inspiring his process."--Jacket

Zaha Hadid, Judith Turner : a dialogue by Zaha Hadid( Book )

5 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 96 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The juxtapositions of Zaha Hadid's architectural models and drawings and Judith Turner's photographs of the architect's buildings in this volume reveal that Hadid and Turner are complicit. Hadid does not design with complete geometries in stable configurations, but designs instead with incomplete or distorted geometries that are dynamic and visually unstable. Turner does the same in her photographs, cropping before a form completes itself in a frame that leaves the rest of the form suggested outside the frame. Hadid structures her designs dynamically with diagonal lines and oblique planes playing with and against each other in three-dimensional fields
Deconstructivist architects( Visual )

15 editions published between 1989 and 2017 in 3 languages and held by 89 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Interviews with architects currently designing deconstructivist architectural projects, a new international design movement that is now challenging post-modernism and transforming modernism. Both young and established architects from Tokyo to London to Los Angeles are developing intense and purposefully 'accidental' works that are not about beautiful composition, symmetry or regular rhythmic order, but about the erosion of what might be called architectural certainty
