Modernism rediscovered = Die wiederentdeckte Moderne = La redécouverte d'un modernisme by Pierluigi Serraino ( Book )
25 editions published between 2000 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 419 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
If a building is not widely seen, its photograph rarely or never published, it simply does not enter into architectural discourse. Many buildings photographed by the author suffered this fate, their images falling into oblivion. This book brings them to light, paying homage to California Modernism in all its forms

NorCalMod : icons of northern California modernism by Pierluigi Serraino ( Book )
4 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 176 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"NorCalMod is a journey of rediscovery of the proud tradition of Modernist architecture in Northern California. Numerous significant Modern buildings remain hidden in plain view in Northern California, often obscured in the public consciousness by the perception that Modernism never made it north of the San Fernando Valley. The story of these buildings is told here for the first time, in all its richness and complexity." "But NorCalMod is far more than simply an untold history of architectural Modernism in the Bay Area and its environs. It details both sides of a heated debate that raged around the very idea of Modern buildings in a region that already had an identifiable and preexisting stylistic tradition. This debate drew in some of the greats of twentieth-century architecture and criticism: Frank Lloyd Wright, Lewis Mumford, Walter Gropius, Marcel Breuer, and many more. The way the debate tipped in the end-privileging the "Bay Region Style" over a struggling young Modernism-goes a great way toward explaining why the hundreds of important Modernist projects around the Bay Area and Northern California, many still standing, remain virtually unknown." "Hundreds of amazing period photographs reconstruct the legacy of the Modern movement in the northern half of the state, while Pierluigi Serraino's text elucidates the complex issues that have framed the narrative (or lack of it) on this subject for the past sixty years, making this a landmark addition to the literature both of Modernism and of California architecture.

Donald Olsen : architect of habitable abstractions by Pierluigi Serraino ( Book )
2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The purist houses of Donald Olsen stand out as remarkably durable achievements among the post-war architectural heritage of the San Francisco Bay Area. Inspired by the curriculum that Walter Gropius and Marcel Breuer brought from Germany's Bauhaus to Harvard's Graduate School of Design, Olsen's designs were deeply rooted in the Modern Movement in 20th century Europe, and the architect remained committed to this aesthetic all his life. Olsen's allegiance to these ideals drove his personal and professional itinerary, and sustained him as both an architect and an educator at the College of Environmental Design at the University of California, Berkeley. Richly illustrated with drawings, plans, and photographs, this book fully documents these little known examples of high modernism in Northern California

Christ the Light : The Making of a 21st Century Cathedral ( Book )
1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Two overlapping circles, known as a mandorla, form the basis of the Cathedral of Christ the Light in Oakland, California, which was completed in 2008. The design, by Craig W. Hartman of Skidmore, Owings & Merrill LLP (SOM), combines the early Christian symbol of the fish--ichthys--with an innovative structure made of glass, wood, and concrete. A glazed, bivalve exterior envelops the building, while a layer of fritted glass diffuses light and heat. Inside, the vaulted wooden ceiling soars forty meters upward and is reminiscent of a boat, while an oculus in the enormous dome opens up to the sky. Aisles are like rays leading to the rectangular altar. The unique Omega window behind the altar was created with the help of new technology developed specifically for the cathedral: an image of the Romanesque relief of Christ from the tympanum of Chartres Cathedral was digitized, after which a laser was used to perforate holes in an aluminum panel, rendering an eighteen-meter-tall pixilated image. The image of the Pantocrator is visible as 94,000 points of light inside the cathedral
