"Starting with the dawn of human society, through early civilizations, to the pre-Columbian American tribes, Architecture of First Societies: A Global Perspective traces the different cultural formations that developed in various places throughout the world to form the built environment. Looking through the lens of both time and geography, the history of early architecture is brought to life with full-color photographs, maps, and drawings. Drawing on the latest research in archaeological and anthropological knowledge, this landmark book also looks at how indigenous societies build today in order to help inform the past."--Publisher website
On Leon Baptista Alberti : his literary and aesthetic theories by Mark Jarzombek( Book )

15 editions published between 1989 and 1990 in English and Undetermined and held by 625 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Listen to Alberti's voice. This is what Mark Jarzombek has done in studying virtually all of Alberti's writings on philosophy, ethics, aesthetics, architecture, and literature. Jarzombek's thorough grasp of Alberti's thought and painstaking analysis of his elusive identity transform our image of this remarkable man, carving out a new place for Alberti in literary theory, art history, and Renaissance scholarship. Instead of warming over the stereotypes of Alberti as a "universal man" or as a proponent of "civic Humanism," Jarzombek explores Alberti's views on the relationship between the writer and society. He asserts that, while Alberti was indeed an architect, an art theorist and a man of letters, he was above all a theoretician of writing: "Everywhere one turns, the problems of writing, authorship and textuality seem to appear, from his first writings... to his last." Jarzombek, opening the possibilities for a different type of discussion of Alberti and of such major works as De pictura and De re aedificatora, places Alberti more accurately within the context of his times and clarifies the intertextual relationship among his works. Jarzombek's investigation brings to light themes that have remained hidden in the complex world of Alberti's speculations. The Alberti of Jarzombek's book is an outsider struggling to resolve conflicting impulses of pessimism and hope. He is also a profound and willful thinker who, while amalgamating contemporary trends, did not endorse them but countered with a cosmological philosophy of his own"--Publisher's description
The psychologizing of modernity : art, architecture, and history by Mark Jarzombek( Book )

21 editions published between 1998 and 2010 in English and held by 429 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In The Psychologizing of Modernity, Mark Jarzombek examines the impact of psychology on twentieth-century aesthetics. Analyzing the interface among psychology, art history, and avant-gardist practices, he also reflects on the longevity of the myth of aesthetic individuality as it infiltrated not only avant-grade art, but also history writing. The principal focus of this study is pre-World War II Germany, where theories of empathy and Entartung emerged; and postwar America, where artists, critics, and historians gradually shifted from their reliance on psychology to philosophy in search for more "objective" theorizing discourses."--Jacket
Designing MIT : Bosworth's New Tech by Mark Jarzombek( Book )

9 editions published between 2004 and 2017 in English and German and held by 247 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Though Bosworth's considerable social and political finesse enabled him to land the commission and balance varied competing interests, he found his classically oriented vision challenged by the engineer John Freeman, a proponent of Frederick W. Taylor's new principle of Scientific Management. However strained, the conflict ultimately resulted in a far more innovative design than either individual approach, one that employed new European concepts in industrialism, efficiency, and aesthetics in academic structures."
City of refuge : a 9/11 memorial by Krzysztof Wodiczko( Book )

6 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 152 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"City of Refuge: A 9/11 Memorial stands as a parallel memorial and a supplement to the World Trade Center Memorial that is presently under construction. The artist's aim is to create a more active, critical and discursive memory of the September 11 terrorist attacks, seen in their historical and political context, and in the light of their domestic and international fallout." "The resulting City of Refuge is a memorial in action: on one hand criticising the culture of memory in the wake of 9/11, on the other an ambitious proposal for public art in New York City, reckoning with the catastrophe and the political implications in terms of a cosmopolitan democracy . New and unpublished sketches and montages animate the text, visualising the memorial site. Wodiczko's focus on memory is complemented by a concentration on learning and pro-active programmes of engagement, encouraging new and informed practical initiatives, creating the hope of paving a way to a less unjust and safer world." "City of Refuge is a fascinating insight into the working mind of Wodiczko, the political and personal concepts pushing the project forward, and the idea of social responsibility infused in his work. The book is supported by text from leading scholars from a variety of disciplines, including: Mark Jarzombek, John Rajchman, Andrew Shanken, and Lisa Saltzman. Their contributions constitute a forum published alongside Wodiczko's text, ensuring an engaging debate."--BOOK JACKET
Digital Stockholm syndrome in the post-ontological Age by Mark Jarzombek( Book )

3 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 134 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Once, humans were what they believed. Now, the modern person is determined by data exhaust—an invisible anthropocentric ether of ones and zeros that is a product of our digitally monitored age. Author Mark Jarzombek argues that the world has become redesigned to fuse the algorithmic with the ontological, and the discussion of ontology must be updated to rethink the question of Being. In Digital Stockholm Syndrome in the Post-Ontological Age, Jarzombek provocatively studies the new interrelationship between human and algorithm --
Una historia universal de la arquitectura : un análisis cronológico comparado a través de las culturas by Francis D. K Ching( )

9 editions published in 2011 in Spanish and Undetermined and held by 117 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Este libro ofrece un excepcional recorrido cronológico por más de 500 obras paradigmáticas de la historia universal de la arquitectura. Lejos de centrarse en países y regiones específicos, el manual se organiza en estricto orden cronológico para que todas las culturas y civilizaciones converjan a través de sus legados arquitectónicos. Gracias a este enfoque innovador, el lector dispondrá de una lectura transversal comparada que permite comprender las conexiones, contrastes e influencias mutuas de las diferentes culturas arquitectónicas. Cada obra cuenta con una descripción completa del contexto en que se edificó y de sus características más relevantes, y viene acompañada de un rico material gráfico, que puede incluir mapas, fotografías y, por supuesto, las ilustraciones elaboradas por el célebre maestro del dibujo arquitectónico Francis D.K. Ching. Este primer volumen abarca desde las culturas primitivas (hacia el año 3500 a.C.) hasta el siglo XIV, y presenta reveladoras coincidencias temporales, como las del período centrado alrededor del año 200, donde la construcción del Panteón de Roma coincide con la proyectación de la ciudad mexicana de Teotihuacán y la arquitectura china de la dinastía Han; o las que rodean al año 1200, cuando se están construyendo simultáneamente las iglesias rupestres de Lalibela en Etiopía, la Alhambra de Granada o el templo japonés de Itsukushima. El segundo volumen abarca desde el siglo xv hasta nuestros días, y presenta coincidencias temporales reveladoras, como las del período del Renacimiento europeo, cuyo desarrollo coincide en el tiempo con la construcción del Machu Picchu en Perú y la Ciudad Prohibida de Pekín, o como el esplendor de la arquitectura mogol en la ciudad de Fatehpur Sikri, coincide con la construcción de las primeras haciendas españolas en América y las villas de Andrea Palladio. A su vez, el libro muestra cómo la colonización europea supuso la expansión mundial de la arquitectura del Viejo Continente, un recorrido que llega hasta la era actual de la arquitectura globalizada

5 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 46 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Famous( Book )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 46 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Celebrity permeates all levels of contemporary society; architecture, academia, the architectural press, and the mainstream media all play a role in promoting the mystique of the designer genius. The tradition of learning through apprenticeship and the struggle to have projects commissioned and built perpetuate the importance of the famous architect. Does this serve architecture or only the architectural star? The contributors to Perspecta examine both sides of the argument: Architecture moves forward through a process of innovation; fame provides the architect with the leverage needed to accomplish innovation. Or is it that fame, because of its relationship to the media and popular tastes, inevitably dilutes the quality of the architecture? Does "famous" architecture glorify only itself and neglect the people, the values, and the functions that it must serve?
Richard Bertman : the sculptures by Christina Lanzl( Book )

1 edition published in 2019 in English and held by 45 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For over 50 years Richard Bertman has been sculpting, drawing, and leading an architectural practice. Gradually assembling a lifetime's work, Bertman's sculptural creations encompass over 100 works from five decades. The sculptures bear testimony to a boundless energy and the creativity of a Renaissance man, both an artist and a renowned architect. This book delves into process, meaning and interpretation of Bertman's sculptures, shedding light on his creative practice and analysing each work, while also listening to the artist's voice. He is best known for his whimsical mechanical sculptures. Man, and machine are Bertman's central foci, resulting in two major groupings: kinetic objects primarily activated by electric motors and figurative portraits made from bent wire, welded steel rod, or carved in wood. Complementing these are the early abstract sculptures as well as explorations in other materials, such as copper, bronze or the incorporation of appropriated items from found objects

Art and Globalization( )

1 edition published in 2021 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The "biennale culture" now determines much of the art world. Literature on the worldwide dissemination of art assumes nationalism and ethnic identity, but rarely analyzes it. At the same time there is extensive theorizing about globalization in political theory, cultural studies, postcolonial theory, political economy, sociology, and anthropology. Art and Globalization brings political and cultural theorists together with writers and historians concerned specifically with the visual arts in order to test the limits of the conceptualization of the global in art. Among the major writers on contemporary international art represented in this book are Rasheed Araeen, Joaquín Barriendos, Susan Buck-Morss, John Clark, Iftikhar Dadi, T. J. Demos, Néstor García Canclini, Charles Green, Suman Gupta, Harry Harootunian, Michael Ann Holly, Shigemi Inaga, Fredric Jameson, Caroline Jones, Thomas DaCosta Kaufmann, Anthony D. King, Partha Mitter, Keith Moxey, Saskia Sassen, Ming Tiampo, and C. J. W.-L. Wee. Art and Globalization is the first book in the Stone Art Theory Institutes Series. The five volumes, each on a different theoretical issue in contemporary art, build on conversations held in intensive, weeklong closed meetings. Each volume begins with edited and annotated transcripts of those meetings, followed by assessments written by a wide community of artists, scholars, historians, theorists, and critics. The result is a series of well-informed, contentious, open-ended dialogues about the most difficult theoretical and philosophical problems we face in rethinking the arts today
