Sympathetic seeing : Esther McCoy and the heart of American modernist architecture and design by Kimberli Meyer( Book )

8 editions published in 2011 in English and German and held by 119 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Reyner Banham once said of the great architecture historian Esther McCoy (1904-1989) that "no-one can write about architecture in California without acknowledging her as the mother of us all." Esther McCoy first moved to Los Angeles in 1932, commencing what would be a lifelong infatuation with the city's architecture and a vocation as the pre-eminent historian of west coast modernist architecture. Initially employed as a draftswoman in the studio of R.M. Schindler, McCoy became intimately involved in the preservationist politics of Los Angeles, contributing significant coverage of controversial slum clearances and spending nearly a decade campaigning to save Dodge House in West Hollywood from demolition. By 1960, McCoy had published "Five California Architects," her seminal study of the work of Irving Gill, Charles and Henry Greene, Bernard Maybeck and Rudolf Schindler. Through this pioneering volume and subsequent books, essays and lectures, McCoy established the terms by which we understand the history of California modernism today. "Sympathetic Seeing: Esther McCoy and the Heart of American Modernist Architecture and Design" is the first major catalogue to survey this distinguished figure's life and work. Highlighting the extraordinary range and significance of her presence in the field, this volume affirms McCoy's place as a key figure in American architectural history

Gerald Zugmann : blue universe : Modelle zu Bildern machen = transforming models into pictures : architectural projects by COOPHIMMELB(L)AU "Gerald Zugmann: Blue Universe Architectural Manifestos by COOP HIMMELB(L)AU, M by Gerald Zugmann( Book )

8 editions published in 2002 in German and Undetermined and held by 107 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Blue Universe presents the collaboration between architectural photographer Gerald Zugmann and the architectural group COOP HIMMELB(L)AU. Gerald Zugmann is an internationally recognized architectural photographer who has worked for over 30 years with architects such as Frank Lloyd Wright, Carlo Scarpa, Louis I. Kahn, and Rudolph M. Schindler. With his precise and individual style, he helped establish a new generation of architectural photographers. Eschewing the functional aspects of the buildings and models he photographs, Zugmann focuses on the play of light and shadow. His photographs are dramatic, yet faithful representations, able to highlight essential details while maintaining the integrity of the structural unit. COOP HIMMELB(L)AU emerged in 1968 as one of the most innovative of new architectural groups in Europe. Founded in Vienna by Wolf Dieter Prix and Helmut Swiczinsky, COOP HIMMELB(L)AU is known for its increasingly experimental structures. Each project starts as a series of discussions, ultimately yielding a fully formed model. For Blue Universe, Zugmann photographed a selection of these resulting models. Bringing together the expertise and innovation of a leading architectural firm and a well-known architectural photographer, Blue Universe provides a unique glimpse into the future of experimental architecture

Architectural resistance( Book )

3 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 80 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Twenty architects explored possible developments for the lot neighboring the Schindler House, a revolutionary architectural landmark located in West Hollywood, California. Their visionary ideas are combined in this book to uniquely demonstrate contemporary avant-garde architecture in an unusual line-up. Responding to the challenge that 'It is the architect's duty to offer resistance', [this book] explores the field of tension surrounding architecture, urbanism, and preservation today. It poses the following questions: Is a landmark such as the Schindler House singular, or is it tied to a complex network of relations and urban situations? Is context important to a landmark's intrinsic meaning? How do we measure the social significance of unparalleled historic works of architecture? To what degree do landmarks rely on their surrounding conditions?"--Back cover
