European architecture 1750-1890 by Barry Bergdoll( Book )
12 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 1,005 libraries worldwide
"This book explores the innovative ways in which architects from Soufflot and Adam to Viollet-le-Duc and Semper responded to the new challenges of a rapidly changing modern world. A wide range of buildings were created to house railway stations, prisons, department stores, and museums; the entirely new products of the industrial, political and economic revolutions sweeping Europe."
Bauhaus 1919-1933 : workshops for modernity by Barry Bergdoll( Book )
8 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 775 libraries worldwide
"The Bauhaus, the school of art and design founded in Germany in 1919 and shut down by the Nazis in 1933, brought together artists, architects and designers - among them Anni and Josef Albers, Herbert Bayer, Marcel Breuer, Lyonel Feininger, Walter Gropius, Johannes Itten, Vasily Kandinsky, Paul Klee, Laszlo Moholy-Nagy, Lilly Reich, Oskar Schlemmer, Gunta Stolzl - in an extraordinary conversation on the nature of art in the industrial age. Aiming to rethink the form of modern life, the Bauhaus became the site of a dazzling array of experiments in the visual arts that have profoundly shaped the world today. Bauhaus 1919-1933: Workshops for Modernity, published to accompany a major multimedia exhibition, is The Museum of Modern Art's first comprehensive treatment of the subject since its famous Bauhaus exhibition of 1938, and offers a new generational perspective on the twentieth century's most influential experiment in artistic education." "Organized in collaboration with the three major Bauhaus collections in Germany (the Bauhaus-Archiv Berlin, the Stiftung Bauhaus Dessau and the Klassic Stiftung Weimar), Bauhaus 1919-1933 examines the extraordinarily broad spectrum of the school's products, including industrial design, furniture, architecture, graphics, photography, textiles, ceramics, theater and costume design, painting and sculpture. Many of the objects discussed and illustrated here have rarely if ever been seen or published outside Germany. Featuring approximately 400 color plates, richly complemented by documentary images, Bauhaus 1919-1933 includes two overarching essays by the exhibition's curators, Barry Bergdoll and Leah Dickerman, that present new perspectives on the Bauhaus. Shorter essays by more than 20 leading scholars apply contemporary viewpoints to 30 key Bauhaus objects, and an illustrated narrative chronology provides a dynamic glimpse of the Bauhaus' lived history."--BOOK JACKET

Home delivery : fabricating the modern dwelling by Barry Bergdoll( Book )
11 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 428 libraries worldwide
"As the world's population swells and the need for sustainable ways of living grows ever more urgent and obvious, prefabricated architecture has taken center stage. Even before our current predicaments, the mass-produced, factory-made home had a distinguished history, having served as a vital precept in the development of Modern architecture. Today, with the digital revolution reorganizing the relationship between drafting board and factory, it continues to spur innovative manufacturing and design, and its potential has clearly not yet come to fruition. Home Delivery traces the history of prefabrication in architecture, from its early roots in colonial cottages though the work of such figures as Jean Prouve and Buckminster Fuller, and mass-produced variants such as the Lustron house, to a group of full-scale contemporary houses commissioned specifically for the MoMA exhibition that this book accompanies"--BOOK JACKET

Henri Labrouste : structure brought to light by Henri Labrouste( Book )
5 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 218 libraries worldwide
Henri Labrouste is one of the few nineteenth-century architects consistently lionized as a precursor of modern architecture throughout the twentieth century and into our own time. The two magisterial glass-and-iron reading rooms he built in Paris gave form to the idea of the modern library as a collective civic space. His influence was both immediate and long-lasting, not only on the development of the modern library but also on the exploration of new paradigms of space, materials and luminosity in places of great public assembly. Published to accompany the first exhibition devoted to Labrouste in the United States - and the first anywhere in the world in nearly 40 years - this publication presents nearly 225 works in all media, including drawings, watercolors, vintage and modern photographs, film stills and architectural models. Essays by a range of international architecture scholars explore Labrouste's work and legacy through a variety of approaches

Nature design : from inspiration to innovation by Angeli (ed.) Sachs( Book )
8 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 209 libraries worldwide
"Nature has been a source of inspiration in the design of the human environment, and its influence on contemporary design is more than evident. The "model of nature," with its forms, structures, and organizing principles, does not only inspire the widest range of concept and design processes, but also can be expressed in a broad spectrum of forms and functions. Nature Design addresses this phenomenon from the eighteenth century until today, and presents an international selection of objects and projects from the fields of design, architecture, landscape architecture, art, photography, and scientific research that do not simply depict or imitate nature, but use it as a starting point and reservoir of inspiration for eclectic and innovative responses to the relationship between man and his environment."--BOOK JACKET
Building Seagram by Phyllis Lambert( Book )
3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 209 libraries worldwide
"The Seagram building rises over New York's Park Avenue, seeming to float above the street with perfect lines of bronze and glass. Considered one of the greatest icons of twentieth-century architecture, the building was commissioned by Samuel Bronfman, founder of the Canadian distillery dynasty Seagram. Bronfman's daughter Phyllis Lambert was twenty-seven years old when she took over the search for an architect and chose Mies van der Rohe (18861969), a pioneering modern master of what he termed "skin and bones" architecture. Mies, who designed the elegant, deceptively simple thirty-eight-story tower along with Philip Johnson (19062005), emphasized the beauty of structure and fine materials, and set the building back from the avenue, creating an urban oasis with the building's plaza. Through her choice, Lambert established her role as a leading architectural patron and singlehandedly changed the face of American urban architecture. Building Seagram is a comprehensive personal and scholarly history of a major building and its architectural, cultural, and urban legacies. Lambert makes use of previously unpublished personal archives, company correspondence, and photographs to tell an insider's view of the debates, resolutions, and unknown dramas of the building's construction, as well as its crucial role in the history of modern art and architectural culture."--Publisher description
Rising currents : projects for New York's waterfront by Barry Bergdoll( Book )
5 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 186 libraries worldwide
In the fall of 2009, The Museum of Modern Art and MoMA PS1 selected five interdisciplinary teams of architects, engineers and landscape designers to propose solutions to the effects of climate change on New York's waterfront. The resulting proposals, exhibited at MoMA in 2010 in the exhibition Rising Currents: Projects for New York's Waterfront, emphasize "soft" infrastructure interventions that would make New York City and its surrounding areas more ecologically sound and more resilient in responding to rising sea levels and storm surges. These innovative projects include the creation of salt- and freshwater wetlands, a Venice-like aqueous landscape, habitable piers and man-made islands, and a protective reef of living oysters. Published to document the exhibition, Rising Currents: Projects for New York's Waterfront presents these five projects in detail through essays that summarize the innovative workshop and exhibition, the dialogues they engendered with outside experts and political figures involved in regional planning, and the climate change and urban planning implications of the proposed solutions
Mastering McKim's plan : Columbia's first century on Morningside Heights by Barry Bergdoll( Book )
2 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 162 libraries worldwide
Lina Bo Bardi by Zeuler Rocha Mello de Almeida Lima( Book )
5 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 133 libraries worldwide
Lina Bo Bardi (1914-1992), one of the most important architects working in Latin America in the 20th century, was remarkably prolific and intriguingly idiosyncratic. A participant in the efforts to reshape Italian culture in her youth, Bo Bardi immigrated to Brazil with her husband in 1946. In Brazil, her practice evolved within the social and cultural realities of her adopted country. While she continued to work with industrial materials like concrete and glass, she added popular building materials and naturalistic forms to her design palette, striving to create large, multiuse spaces that welcomed public life. Lina Bo Bardi is the first comprehensive study of Bo Bardi's career and showcases author Zeuler Lima's extensive archival work in Italy and Brazil. The leading authority on Bo Bardi, Lima frames the architect's activities on two continents and in five cities. The book examines how considerations of ethics, politics, and social inclusiveness influenced Bo Bardi's intellectual engagement with modern architecture and provides an authoritative guide to her experimental, ephemeral, and iconic works of design
