Gerrit Th. Rietveld, 1888-1964 : the complete works : Centraal Museum, Utrecht, 1992 by Gerrit Thomas Rietveld( Book )
3 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 329 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
As architect and designer, Gerrit Rietveld (Utrecht, 1888-1964) is one of the great international figures of this century. His work was basically user-friendly and he always tried to see architecture as something for people. Reacting against the conventions with which he had grown up, the driving force behind Rietveld's development became a quest for the essentials of architecture and design. This led in 1918 to the now over-familiar Red Blue Chair and six years after that to the internationally acclaimed Rietveld Schroeder House. This house, built in 1924, signified both an end and a beginning in Rietveld's career. Whereas in the preceding years he had progressed from cabinet-maker to architect and designer of a complete living environment, he was now to concentrate largely on architecture. More and more, he voiced his support for a functional architecture, in which he introduced new constructional methods and where the significance of form and colour was lessened. After the Second World War he contributed to the Dutch reconstruction. Neighbourhoods in Utrecht and Reeuwijk were built according to his design. Within the straitjacket of regulations, building stipulations and budgetary restrictions, Rietveld contrived to introduce in a highly original but flexible manner the functional and aesthetic principles that he had defined before the war. Always experimenting to find the right form, always faithful to his principles, his work was nevertheless of a huge diversity. This variety is what makes Rietveld what he is

Considering Rem Koolhaas and the Office for Metropolitan Architecture : what is OMA by Rem Koolhaas( Book )
2 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 253 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"What is OMA provides a clear insight into the role and significance of Rem Koolhaas and the Office for Metropolitan Architecture. Authors of international repute from beyond the province of architecture examine OMA's work in the light of social and economic developments. The many facets of Koolhaas come under review: his take on architectural theory and the conceptual apparatus he employs, his vision of urbanism and the contemporary city, the designs put into practice by OMA and the research projects of the AMO think tank, which exist outside the immediate boundaries of architecture. This book paints an intelligent picture of the sheer range of OMA's architecture and of Koolhaas's seminal role in the architectural world."--BOOK JACKET

20th century architecture in the Netherlands by Hans Ibelings( Book )
3 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 175 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This richly illustrated book provides an introduction to twentieth century Dutch architecture. Ten concise chapters, each covering a single decade, discuss a selection of characteristic buildings, referring to the major events and developments of each period. Architectural history is not defined here as a cyclical succession of styles or generations, but as a heterogenous collection of buildings and designs which are often based on equally differing approaches. Apart from the international renowned masterpieces by architects like Berlage, Oud, Duiker, Van Eyck and Koolhaas this book includes numerous lesser known buildings which underline the versatility and quality of Dutch architecture"--Back cover
Team 10 : 1953-81, in search of a utopia of the present by Team 10( Book )
3 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 169 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This book offers an abundantly illustrated survey of Team 10 meetings, events and project documentation, as well as additional keys to the Team 10 discourse. Running parallel to the chronological narratives is an evaluation of the legacy of Team 10, with essays by leading scholars on the origins and position of Team 10 within the history of architecture. These writings examine crossovers with visual and non-Western cultures and shed light on architectural and urban solutions formulated in response to the problems of post-war modernity. A third and final section, which is devoted to a series of interviews with former Team 10 members, provides a unique portrait of the group and its meetings."--BOOK JACKET
Brazil contemporary : architectuur, beeldcultuur, kunst = architecture, visual culture, art ( Book )
5 editions published in 2009 in Dutch and English and held by 165 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Brazil is one of the biggest countries in the world and is regarded as one of the economic world powers of the future because of its lightning development. But there is another side to the coin: the enormous contrasts between rich and poor, the slums in the staggeringly enormous cities of millions, and the destruction of the rainforest. These contrasts are manifested culturally in a heady mixture of high and low art, technological innovation and traditional handicrafts." "This richly illustrated publication provides a review of the contemporary architecture, visual culture, art and music of Brazil. It offers wide coverage of the overwhelming urban development of the metropolis Sao Paulo and a survey of the powerful and fascinating visual culture - television, video, film, photography, graphic design - in Rio de Janeiro in particular. The section on art is introduced by the idiosyncratic oeuvre of Helio Oiticica, complemented by the work of five of today's leading Brazilian artists."--Jacket
The architecture of knowledge : the library of the future = De architektuur van kennis : de bibliotheek van de toekomst ( Book )
3 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 157 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Summary: What will the library of the future look like? In an age in which information and communication are everywhere and the boundaries between producers and consumers of information are increasingly blurred, the question of what a public library might represent is urgent. The notion of a classical library in an academic environment with a formal collection and a permanent staff is already wavering. As a typology the library enjoys a rich history as an important component of public space within the city. The Architecture of Knowledge offers new insights into this bastion of public knowledge and collective memory as well as fascinating prospects for its future. International experts present concepts of collective knowledge, the notion of public space, thoughts on the relationship between (new) media and (cultural) society, and insights into product management and reception. The result is a fascinating journey into the future of an age-old institution, obligatory reading for architects, librarians and users alike
