Making design : Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum collection by Cooper-Hewitt Museum( Book )

6 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 159 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"'Making Design' marks the transformative renovation of Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum and signifies an entirely new way to experience a museum and its collection. Cooper Hewitt possesses an extraordinarily diverse collection--totaling more than 210,000 objects--and is the only museum in the United States devoted exclusively to historic and contemporary works from around the world, spanning thirty centuries. Designed by Irma Boom, and an object in itself, visible in the dark and in the light, the book expresses the museum's primary goal--to inspire people to see how design impacts their lives. The 1145 collection objects and fifty-four essays, drawn from new scholarship, weave parallel narratives throughout the book. Boom's visual sequences encourage looking at objects as well as making connections. This playful and unexpected jaunt through the collection embraces the user-centered experiences found on the dynamic website and in the galleries of the new Cooper Hewitt."--Back cover

Rijks Museum by Wijnanda Deroo( Book )

8 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in Dutch and English and held by 107 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dutch/American photographer Wijnanda Deroo has followed and photographed the renovation and transformation of the Rijksmuseum since 2004. This beautiful book designed by Irma Boom is being published to mark the museum's re-opening in 2013, bringing together the best of these photos. Deroo won international fame with her intriguing, meticulous photos, devoid of human presence, of the interiors of offices, hotels, public buildings, restaurants and homes. For the Rijksmuseum she accumulated, in the same way and over a period of nearly 10 years, an impressive period document of the new Rijksmuseum under construction. The photos of the museum, which is steadily inching toward its re-opening, bear her unmistakable stamp. The work of Wijnanda Deroo (b. 1955) is part of leading collections, including the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York, the Centre Pompidou in Paris and the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam

Boom + by Akiko Wakabayashi( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 48 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

IRMA BOOM (IB) is a Dutch graphic designer. She studied at AKI in Enschede and started her professional life at the Government Publishing and Printing Office in The Hague, where she made the revolutionary Stamp Books 1987+88 for PTT. In 1991 she founded Irma Boom Office (IBO) in Amsterdam. She has been a senior critic at Yale University in the USA since 1992. Boom sees her books as containers of thoughts, that communicate ideas and stories. She broke through internationally in 1996 with her by now iconic SHV Thinkbook 1996-1896, which she worked on for five years. The many commissions that followed led to an impressive career. The IBO works with the Rijksmuseum Amsterdam, Chanel, Bard Graduate Center, Fondazione Prada, Moderna Museet, OMA/Rem Koolhaas, Prince Claus Fund, Phaidon, and other international artists and museums. One hundred of the over 300 books designed by Irma Boom until now, were added to the permanent collection of the MoMA in New York. In 2003 the Library of the University of Amsterdam made a start with the Irma Boom Archive. Her work has been much awarded and in 2014 she received the Dutch State Prize for the Arts, the Johannes Vermeer Award, for her 'unparallelled achievements in the field of graphic design'. Since 1991 she always had one or two assistants working at IBO: young, budding designers with different nationalities. This publication was initiated by Akiko Wakabayashi, at IBO since 2013, on the occasion of exhibitions in Japan. Ten former and current coworkers of IB were asked to put their personal views on the IBO design practice to paper - in their own words, design and imagery. Together they present us with a remarkably intimate portrait of IB and her philosophy on work and design. The interview with IB by Toshiaki Koga explores the immaterial labour behind the making of books at IBO
Colour, based on nature by Irma Boom( Book )

5 editions published in 2012 in English and Dutch and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'Colour based on nature' takes the concept of Irma Boom's previous work further afield, highlighting UNESCO World Heritage sites across the globe and on every continent. This time, the colour diagrams are derived from 80 natural locations designated by the UNESCO list. It is an exercise in describing without words, using instead colours to evoke and celebrate the essence of a place. Detailed information about the World Heritage properties, their selection criteria, how many are inscribed per nation and in what regions such sites are most endangered makes this an important tribute to the reasons such places exist
Window by Manfredo Di Robilant( Book )

4 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Elements by Rem Koolhaas( Book )

5 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Architecture is a strange mixture of persistence and flux, an amalgamation of elements -- some that have been around for over 5,000 years and others that were (re)invented yesterday. The fact that these elements change independently of each other, according to different cycles and economies, and for different reasons, turns each building into a complex collage of the archaic and the current, the site-specific and the standard, mechanical smoothness and the spontaneous. Only by looking at the elements under a wide lens can we recognize the cultural preferences, forgotten symbolism, technological advances, mutations triggered by intensifying global exchange, climatic adaptions, political calculations, regulatory requirements, new digital regimes, and, somewhere in the mix -- the ideas of the architect that constitute the practice of architecture today. A collection of these essential elements into 15 books in a package launched at the 2014 Venice Biennale that allows us to look through a microscope at the real fundamentals of our buildings and see again the essential design techniques used by any architect, anywhere, anytime
