American synagogues : a century of architecture and Jewish community by Samuel Gruber( Book )

7 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 491 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"American Synagogues is the first book to explore the exceptional works of architecture of modern American synagogues in the twentieth century. In this book author Samuel Gruber relates the fascinating history of the Jewish people in America and how it is expressed in twentieth-century synagogue design." "The book features all-new photography of synagogues in many styles from a dozen states, many never before published in any form. These include major buildings in the New York area, Los Angeles, Chicago, Miami, Atlanta, Baltimore, Cleveland, Austin, and elsewhere. The synagogues were designed by such European masters as Eric Mendelsohn, Walter Gropius, and Pietro Belluschi, who helped bring modernism to America; and the best-known modern American architects, including Frank Lloyd Wright, Philip Johnson, Harrison and Abramovitz, and Minoru Yamasaki. Many include artwork by Ben Shahn, Louise Nevelson, and other important artists. Striking but little-known synagogues of the post-war period by Percival Goodman, Sidney Eisenshtat, and Werner Seligmann are included. Visually stunning variations on Classical and Deco forms by major early twentieth-century architects, such as Arnold Brunner, Henry Hornbostel, Alfred S. Alschuler, Charles R. Greco, and Philip Trammel Schutze are also featured. Important contemporary works by Norman Jaffe, Thomas Beeby, Will Bruder, Lake/Flatow, Alexander Gorlin and others demonstrate the most recent developments in synagogue design."--Jacket

Officially published with the U.S. Forest Service, this book features the thirty most notable national forests -- while also celebrating more than one hundred different national forests in forty-four states -- from the White Mountains of New Hampshire to the Olympics of Washington. Unlike the national parks, Americans can use these lands for all manner of recreation, truly earning these tremendous resources the moniker of "America's backyard."

Daniel Burnham : visionary architect and planner by Kristin Schaffer( Book )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Daniel H. Burnham reshaped the face of American cities. As described by his well-known colleague, Louis Sullivan, Burnham's buildings "rose sheer and stark, with a subtlety of line and surface, a direct singleness of purpose, that gave one the thrill of romance." He built over two hundred structures, including office buildings, train stations, department stores, banks, museums, and hotels. Burnham was best known for his Chicago works, including the Monadnock, Rookery, and Reliance buildings. Yet his commissions spanned the continent with landmark buildings such as the Flatiron Building in New York, Pennsylvania Station in Pittsburgh, and Mills Building in San Francisco." "Based on his architectural planning of the 1893 World's Fair, Burnham became deeply involved as a leader in the City Beautiful Movement. He drafted city plans that increased the efficiency, mobility, and beauty of Chicago, Cleveland, Washington, D.C., and San Francisco. His Plan of Chicago received such critical favor that over twenty cities requested he develop similar plans for them." "Burnham also transformed the architecture office from artistic studios based on the Beaux Arts model to professional organizations with branch offices spread throughout the nation. His office served as the training ground for many notable architects who later established practices of their own." "This critical monograph is the first to explore the career of Chicago architect Daniel H. Burnham through thought-provoking text and over two hundred newly commissioned color photographs."--BOOK JACKET
