12 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 686 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Pritzker Architecture Prize has often been described as the "Nobel of architecture" because of its great importance. It was established in 1979 to honor annually "a living architect of talent, vision, and commitment who has produced consistent and significant contributions to humanity and the built environment through the art of architecture." Over the past two decades, many of the most outstanding international architects have received this highly coveted award, and their works are among the finest examples of contemporary architecture throughout the world. This volume is published on the occasion of an exhibition at the Art Institute of Chicago that surveys the Pritzker Architecture Prize's twenty-year history

Modern trains and splendid stations : architecture, design, and rail travel for the twenty-first century by Martha Thorne( Book )

22 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 438 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Inter-city rail travel is one of the dominant facts of modern life. From the early nineteenth century, when the first train stations - "cathedrals of technology," buildings without precedent in the history of architecture - were constructed, these focal points of transportation have enjoyed a unique status in public life. They have come a long way from the simple wooden shed erected in Liverpool, England, in 1830." "In the wake of the rail renaissance of the 1980s and 1990s, new train stations, from the U.S. to Japan, must respond to increasingly complex challenges, as high-speed trains become more and more common and the next generation of magnetically levitated trains approaches. The state-of-the-art examples featured in Modern Trains and Splendid Stations are analyzed from several perspectives: as generators of urban renewal; as new architectural icons; and as connecting points from different means of transportation. Such internationally renowned architects as Helmut Jahn (in the United States), Nicholas Grimshaw (in England), and Arata Isozaki (in Japan) have all been involved in station design."--Jacket
