Modern color/modern architecture : Amédée Ozenfant and the genealogy of color in modern architecture by William W Braham( Book )

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Do colors have different spatial and architectural effects? What is the psychological impact of color? Are colors endowed with symbolic meaning? What is a natural color? Those questions have a long contentious history, especially among architects of the modern period. A key figure in that history is Amedee Ozenfant, painter, critic and friend of Le Corbusier, who in the first half of this century founded a school in London where he conducted experiments and wrote about color in architecture. Those experiments have been reconstructed for the book, which also includes reprints of his most important articles on the subject. This book provides a survey of this most contemporary topic that will inspire and inform designers and architects." "This book is a thorough survey of the history and genesis of the most crucial questions concerning the role of architectural color from the nineteenth century to the present day."--BOOK JACKET

4 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Purist movement in art, founded by Charles-Edouard Jeanneret (better known as Le Corbusier) and Amedee Ozenfant, championed a traditional classicism with a formal focus on clean geometries while it simultaneously embraced new technologies and materials. Realized equally in painting and in architecture, Purism also incorporated interior and industrial design and urban planning. The periodical L'Esprit Nouveau, founded by Ozenfant and Jeanneret in 1920, served as the mouthpiece for the Purist movement; the diverse subject matter addressed in the magazine reflected the wide-ranging interests of the Purists." "Published to accompany a major exhibition at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, L'Esprit Nouveau: Purism in Paris, 1918-1925 is the first major study of Purism in almost fifteen years and a key contribution to the study of classic twentieth-century modernism in painting and architecture. This revealing volume examines over seventy-five paintings by Jeanneret, Ozenfant, and their closest colleague, Fernand Leger. Also included is the full text of Le Corbusier's and Ozenfant's 1918 manifesto, Apres Je cubisme, translated for the first time into English. At the heart of L'Esprit Nouveau: Purism in Paris, 1918-1925 lies a single work: Le Corbusier's striking Pavillon de l'Esprit Nouveau, designed for the 1925 International Exposition of Decorative Arts in Paris, at which the term Art Deco was coined. The architecture of Le Corbusier's pavilion, along with its interior decoration - paintings, sculpture, furniture, glassware, rugs, and other objects - offers a complete summation of Purist aesthetics."--Jacket
