Between earth and heaven : the architecture of John Lautner by Jean-Louis Cohen( Book )
15 editions published between 2008 and 2011 in English and held by 326 libraries worldwide
"Accompanying a full-scale exhibation of his work at Los Angeles's Hammer Museum, Between Earth and Heaven: The Architecture of John Lautner comprehensively explores Lautner's full body of work, including his apprenticeship with Frank Lioyd Wright and the culture and geographical context of Los Angeles." "This illustrated monograph includes previously unpublished plans, drawings, construction images, and Lautner's own photographs to unveil the evolution, originality, and logic of his designs, focusing on the atmospheres and vistas they establish and the connections to landscape and fluidity that mark their innovative spatial arguments."--Jacket
Carlo Scarpa, architect : intervening with history by Carlo Scarpa( Book )
15 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 295 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

Arthur Erickson : critical works by R. Nicholas Olsberg( Book )
11 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 290 libraries worldwide
"At long last, here is a book of critical thought that analyzes celebrated architect Arthur Erickson's best work and situates it as a distinctive body of ideas within the mainstream of international architecture in the last half of the twentieth century." "In this book, Nicholas Olsberg draws on Erickson's own discussion of ideas to present a thoughtful and illuminating reassessment of his most important work. Ricardo L. Castro's photography captures essential passages of the works as they have matured into their settings. More than 170 images, including archival photographs, study models, drawings and plans, show how the designs were evolved and their intent conveyed."--Jacket

2 editions published in 1970 in English and held by 215 libraries worldwide
Carefree California : Cliff May and the romance of the ranch house by Jocelyn Gibbs( Book )
3 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 182 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
