Mies in America by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe( Book )
29 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 759 libraries worldwide
"This study of one of the 20th century's greatest architects re-evaluates the entire body of work undertaken by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe between his emigration to America in 1938 and his death in 1969. Based on considerable new research and bringing to light previously unstudied material - drawings and collages, photographs, project documents, letters, and extensive interviews with many of those who worked with Mies - this is the first study to make full and in-depth use of available archival material. Its nine essays, distinct in style of argumentation, focus, and ambition, constitute a new interpretation of a major figure in architectural history." "Mies in America offers readers a deeper immersion into Mies's thought than has been attempted before. Venturing a more complex response than the familiar reading of Mies as a grand master of modernism, these essays retrace the genesis of Mies's design in order to uncover his ambitions, investigate the implicit outlines of the Miesian city, follow the process of designing for America, and look at Mies as a touchstone for contemporary practice."--Jacket
Otto Wagner, Adolf Loos, and the road to modern architecture by Werner Oechslin( Book )
10 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 342 libraries worldwide
"Contemporary architectural theory emphasizes the importance of "tectonics," the term used to articulate the relationship between construction, structure and architectural expression. Despite the term's currency, little consideration has been given to its origins or historical significance. In his study, Werner Oechslin examines the attempts by early modern theoreticians of architecture to grapple with the relationship between appearance and essence, which is crucial to the discourse of tectonics. Referring to the writings of Karl Botticher, Gottfried Semper, Otto Wagner and Adolf Loos, Oechslin follows this development from theories of a Classical architecture without columnar orders to a Modern architecture upholding the "truth" of its own architectural expression

Sigfried Giedion und die Fotografie Bildinszenierungen der Moderne by Gregor Harbusch( Book )
9 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in German and held by 90 libraries worldwide
Sigfried Giedion (1888-1968) war einer der bedeutendsten Schweizer Kunsthistoriker des 20. Jahrhunderts und zugleich einer der Protagonisten der internationalen Architekturmoderne. Er organisierte und kuratierte zahlreiche Ausstellungen, war in der Lehre tätig und knüpfte weltweite Netzwerke - vor allem aber wirkte er als Publizist. Dabei schenkte er sowohl dem eigenen Fotografieren als auch dem präzisen Bildeinsatz in seinen Veröffentlichungen, die er bis ins Detail selbst gestaltete, mindestens ebenso viel Aufmerksamkeit wie dem geschriebenen Wort. An seinen Freund Walter Gropius schrieb er 1930: "Gewöhnlich photographiere ich ja selbst, nicht nur um das Material zu besitzen, sondern vor allem, um es so zu haben, wie man es braucht, um möglichst wenig Worte daran zu hängen." Sigfried Giedions vielfältige bildnerische Strategien sind von der Forschung bisher weitgehend unbeachtet geblieben. Die Publikation beleuchtet erstmals seine Vorgehensweisen und liefert einen historiografischen Beitrag zur aktuellen Debatte um Bilder und Medien. Die Grundlage dafür bilden Dokumente aus dem umfangreichen Nachlass Giedions im gta Archiv. Hier haben sich unter anderem 2500 seiner Fotografien erhalten, auf die er sich über vier Jahrzehnte lang in seiner einflussreichen Funktion als Vermittler im Dienst der internationalen Moderne stützte

Arnaboldi by Michele Arnaboldi( Book )
6 editions published in 2010 in 3 languages and held by 72 libraries worldwide
Michele Arnaboldi, an architect from Ticino, who has worked for Luigi Snozzi, among others, founded his own firm in Locarno in 1995. He has made his reputation above all with residential architecture. He did, however, also attract attention when his design in collaboration with Raffaele Cavadini won the international competition for the design of the Expo 2000 grounds in Hanover. This volume documents thirty-five of Arnaboldi's projects, primarily residences in Switzerland and Italy but also public buildings such as the new cultural center in Lugano, the sports center in Tenero, La Carità hospital in Locarno, and the pavilion for the Locarno film festival. Two essays and an interview with Michele Arnaboldi provide deeper insight into his attitude toward design
