Tracing Eisenman : Peter Eisenman complete works by Peter Eisenman( Book )

25 editions published in 2006 in 3 languages and held by 486 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"New York-based architect Peter Eisenman is one of the most significant international figures of the postwar period. Through his extensive theoretical writings and built projects in the United States, Japan, Spain, and Germany, he has influenced generations of architects and educators and paved the way for the current digital avant-garde." "This is the first single-volume, comprehensive overview ever published of Eisenman's buildings and projects, from his first work, House I (1967), in New Jersey, to his most recent large-scale works around the world. His most ambitious and complex project is currently under construction in Spain; his Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe in Berlin, which opened in 2005, has attracted worldwide attention and acclaim." "At the book's core is a complete presentation if Eisenman's most important projects, delineated by the academic and building themes he has pursued throughout his career, and framed by essays from international architects and critics such as Stan Allen, Greg Lynn, Sara Whiting, and Guido Zuliani."--Jacket

The widespread practice of psychoanalysis, the development of genetic engineering, and the raised consciousness of the female body have altered not only the traditional idea of body but also of how we inhabit the body, and hence make and inhabit space. How does the new understanding of the body relate to space? How does architecture adjust to this new idea of body? When does the body become the body politic? In Anybody, these and other questions are argued by thirty essayists

Architecture on the edge of postmodernism : collected essays, 1964-1988 by Robert A. M Stern( Book )

8 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 246 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Robert A. M. Stern is one of contemporary architecture’s most influential figures, with a career encompassing every facet of the profession: he has a flourishing private practice; he is a noted authority on New York architectural history; his own architectural work has been featured in numerous monographs; and as Dean of the Yale School of Architecture, he has undeniably shaped the field of architectural education. As a preeminent force in the discourse of the field, Stern was one of the first critics to use and analyze the term “postmodern” in architecture. This collection of essays—Stern’s first—brackets the years defined by the changes in architectural thinking introduced by Robert Venturi in 1966 and the exhibition Deconstructivist Architecture at the Museum of Modern Art in 1988. Throughout, Stern provides close readings of architectural events and offers firsthand accounts of transformations in architectural thinking during a critical period."--Publisher description

Tradition and invention in architecture : conversations and essays by Robert A. M Stern( Book )

6 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 242 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Among practicing architects today, perhaps only Robert A.M. Stern once contemplated a career as a historian, an interest that has informed both his built work and his writings. Tradition and Invention in Architecture brings together 26 of Stern's essays and conversations from the past five decades. Topics range from modern classicism, American housing, gardens, and New York City to the work of Norman Foster, Louis Kahn, Charles Moore, and Robert Moses. Reminders of Stern's own broad career in architecture are found in his thoughts on his PBS television series Pride of Place, his discussion of the planning of Seaside and Celebration, Florida, and his view on institutional branding through architecture. Known as much for his candor as for his profound knowledge of American architecture, Stern's observations on the architecture of his time are equally valuable. As he writes, "For an architect, writing is one way of reconsidering history while working in the present--always in search of the best from the past and the present, which allows us to invent for the future

Meet the Nelsons! : the ANY years : issues 10-27, 1994-2001 by Wes Jones( Book )

3 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 45 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Meet the Nelsons, the sixth volume of the Forum Pamphlet Series, documents Wes Jones notorious comic strip that appeared in ANY Magazine (Architecture New York) from 1994 to 2001. At once a critical send-up of 1990s architectural discourse and a masterfully executed homage to the traditions and techniques of comic book art. "The Nelsons" addresses themes ranging from the legacy of the machine aesthetic to the challenges of virtuality to key disciplinary personalities such as Buckminster Fuller and Manfredo Tafuri. Each strip combines insider knowledge and healthy skepticism with a sly wit rarely encountered in serious architectural discourse. This book brings together every frame of "The Nelsons" in a single volume and features bonus texts by Jones himself, ANY editor Cynthia Davidson and LA Forum president Mohamed Sharif
