Carlo Scarpa, architect : intervening with history by Carlo Scarpa( Book )
10 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 284 libraries worldwide
"Between 1953 and 1978 the Italian architect Carlo Scarpa produced an incredibly varied range of works that challenge our notions of what modern architecture might be. Foremost in that work was the need to reconcile a wholehearted embrace of the new with the longstanding traditions of local craft and of universal practice to create an architecture that would clearly express its own machine-driven times without abandoning the psychic and sensual forces of place, materiality, and memory." "Carlo Scarpa, Architect: Intervening with History illustrates, through abundant reproductions of Scarpa's drawings, the ways the architect created a dialogue with light, space, and architecture within the historic fabric of Italian cities. Presenting these projects as they exist today, the patient eye of contemporary photographer Guido Guidi deepens our understanding of this timely approach to architectural dialogue."--Jacket

10 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 280 libraries worldwide
This is the first book to situate Arthur Erickson's work as a distinctive body of ideas within the mainstream of international architecture. Erickson is the mastermind behind powerful urban works around the world, and his work was widely recognized - he was the recipient of the American Institute of Architects' Gold Medal, and the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada Gold Medal. This book delves into Erickson's process and philosophy, with more than 170 images, archival photos, drawings and plans illuminating the evolution of his designs. Erickson's notable international work includes the Canadian Chancery in Washington, D.C., the Museum of Glass in Tacoma, Washington, the Dalian Cultural Centre in China, and the Kuwait Oil Complex in Kuwait City

Carefree California : Cliff May and the romance of the ranch house by Jocelyn Gibbs( Book )
4 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 169 libraries worldwide
"This landmark volume is an authoritative, richly illustrated examination of the origins, evolution, and influence of the California ranch house. Carefree California looks at a legendary figure in Southern California design, Cliff May, and the ubiquitous domestic icon his name evokes, the ranch house. We also see how other architects--from George Washington Smith to Rudolph Schindler--pursued different paths toward the same kind of relaxed domesticity exemplified by the ranch house. By the late '50s, much of the world was fascinated with California living and with the ranch house in particular, which derived from architects' evocation and reworking of distinctive regional traditions, allied with the pervasive romance and myths of the California frontier, and from the cultivation of a domestic architecture that could serve distinctively Californian ways of carefree living. By uncovering patterns for living that suited the automobile age among the almost archaic forms and rhythms of mission and pioneer dwellings, an extraordinary range of modernism emerged that was at once grounded in history and soaring into the space age."--Publisher's website
