Architectures of time toward a theory of the event in modernist culture by Sanford Kwinter ( )
14 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 1,365 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In Architectures of Time, Sanford Kwinter offers a critical guide to the modern history of time and to the interplay between the physical sciences and the arts. Tracing the transformation of twentieth-century epistemology to the rise of thermodynamics and statistical mechanics, Kwinter explains how the demise of the concept of absolute time, and of the classical notion of space as a fixed background against which things occur, led to field theory and a physics of the "event." He suggests that the closed, controlled, and mechanical world of physics gave way to the approximate, active, and qualitative world of biology as a model of both scientific and metaphysical explanation."--BOOK JACKET

Rem Koolhaas : conversations with students by Rem Koolhaas ( Book )
5 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 268 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This book presents a lecture and seminar given by architect Rem Koolhaas at the Rice University School of Architecture. In this compact volume, Koolhaas addresses the urban and architectural implications of extra-large construction, using as examples three of the Office of Metropolitan Architecture (OMA)'s important large-scale projects: the Zeebrugge Ferry Terminal in Belgium, the Tres Grande Bibliotheque in Paris, and the Karlsruhe Center for Art and Media Technology in Germany. Tackling questions about the difficult state of urbanism and modernism in contemporary Europe, America, and Asia, this volume forms a concise and coherent explanation of the theories and polemics of Koolhaas and OMA. Thie book serves as an inexpensive alternative and companion to Koolhaas's S,M,L,XL." -- Publisher's description

Steven Holl : color, light, time by Jordi Safont-Tria ( Book )
6 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 140 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Following Written in Water (2002), this is the second publication devoted to Steven Holl's legendary watercolors. Four hundred watercolors represent the creative process of this renowned and influential American architect and reveal his highly personal method developed over many years, containing preliminary ideas and sketches of all major projects. Holl is known for his sculptural architecture and his virtuosic use of light, and watercolors are the ideal means to visualize these characteristic aspects of his work. At a time of rapidly changing technology in the service of architectural design, these watercolors become spectacular examples of a low-tech method. The results are invariably original works of art. The water colors are juxtaposed with photographs of the built architecture and emphasize the crucial aspect of scale"--OCLC
Requiem for the city at the end of the Millennium by Sanford Kwinter ( Book )
6 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 116 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In this small, but sharply-pointed book, renowned theorist Sanford Kwinter addresses the sometimes subtle, sometimes brutal transformations that characterized the modernization processes set into motion at the turn of the millennium. From the strange appearance of the 'Trojan Horse' that was the Centre Pompidou which served as the harbinger and template of the new idea of "Europe", through the dot.com bubble of the late 1990s, to the destruction of the World Trade Center Towers in New York, a new world came into being that design thinking has yet to fully take into account. The City is here seen not only as the last frontier of human history currently under threat of total eclipse, it is the indomitable form of collective experience upon which one can count as assuredly as one can on death and taxes. Requiem, to quote from Thomas Daniell's introduction, is first and foremost redemptive: "Kwinter's most negative assessments of the city are driven by a deep commitment to its sublime potentials--a desire to sacralize the most profane and fecund of human creations".--P.
