The images of architects by Daria Pezzoli-Olgiati( Book )

12 editions published between 2013 and 2015 in English and held by 73 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

I asked architects to send me important images that show the basis of their work. Images that are in their head when they think. Images that show the origin of their architecture. In this book we find 44 individual "musées imaginaires". The most unique architects living today each present up to ten images to explain the autobiographical roots of their oeuvre. The images are explanations, metaphors, foundations, memories and intentions. They are poetic and philosophical avowals. They reveal a personal perspective on thoughts. They show the roots of architecture and expectations concerning projects. Conscious and unconscious. The biographies are written by the architects themselves. The images are small, legible and interpretable as icons. As individual collections, they present a personal view of an individual world, while as a whole they provide a universal view of the perceptible origin of contemporary architecture

Ein Vortrag von Valerio Olgiati by Valerio Olgiati( Book )

7 editions published in 2011 in 4 languages and held by 35 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Der Graubündner Architekt Valerio Olgiati ist mit Bauten wie dem Schulhaus in Paspels oder dem Atelier Bardill in Scharans, nicht zuletzt jedoch mit dem "Gelben Haus" und seinem Atelier in Flims über die Grenzen der Schweiz hinaus bekannt geworden. In Form eines gut bebilderten Aufsatzes erläutert der Architekt wie er seine Projekte entwickelt, welche Parameter seinen Entwurfsprozess beeinflussen und aus welchem intellektuellen Kontext heraus er wirkt. Das Buch bietet einen sehr persönlichen Einblick in das Wirken des Architekten und sein architektonisches Selbstverständnis und steht damit ergänzend neben der Publikation 'DADO' als persönliches Statement. In reduzierter und klarer Sprache liefert das Buch einen sehr persönlichen Zugang zu Positionen und Prägungen Valerio Olgiatis. Text und Bild ergänzen sich zu einem Erzählstrang, der das Verständnis zu Olgiatis Werk erweitert
A lecture by Valerio Olgiati by Valerio Olgiati( Book )

5 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and Italian and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this title, Valerio Olgiati talks about his architecture. The Graubunden-based architect Valerio Olgiati has become well-known outside Switzerland for such buildings as his school building in Paspels and the Atelier Bardill in Scharans, but not least for his Yellow House and his studio in Flims. In the form of a well illustrated essay, the architect explains how he develops his projects, the parameters that influence his design process, and the intellectual context from which he works. In a reduced, clear language this iconographic autobiography offers a very personal view of the Valerio Olgiati's activity and of his selfimage as an architect, thus supplementing with a personal statement the earlier publication "DADO". Text and images complement each other to create a narrative thread that offers informative insights into the architect's intellectual and visual imagination and expands our understanding of Olgiatis oeuvre

Wood and wood joints : building traditions of Europe and Japan by Klaus Zwerger( Book )

6 editions published between 2012 and 2015 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Building with wood as an ecologically viable material is a tradition with a long history. The timber architecture which has ensued over the past centuries reveals to the modern observer the depth of knowledge which has enabled both Eastern and Western cultures to use this material in such a creative way. In the most typical method of building with wood, elements are connected by using wood joints which do not require the assistance of adhesives or metal connectors. This art of wood joining reached its zenith in Japan; but Europe too provided its share of highly influential forms. By looking at several hundred examples from Japan and 18 European countries, this book describes in great detail the history of timber architecture in terms of its technical, aesthetic and ecological dimensions. Enlarged by an account of structural timber construction in China, this new edition offers a comparison of the developments in Europe and East Asia"--Page 4 of cover
