Eric Owen Moss : buildings and projects by Eric Owen Moss( Book )

9 editions published in 1991 in English and Spanish and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Eric Owen Moss has become a major force - nationally and internationally - in the field of architecture. Moss's unusual combination of materials - wood, glass, wallboard, and metals - and his experiments with spatial layering have given rise to many complex and evocative structures. Since his rise to international prominence over the past decade, the award winning Los Angeles-based architect has continued to invent form and space that defy conventional labels. Among his best known works are Samitaur/Kodak in Los Angeles and several large on-going projects in Culver City, which includes adaptive reuse, retail, and office buildings. This book, following Rizzoli's successful volumes 1 and 2 on Moss, considers mostly recent, built work including continuing projects in Los Angeles and Culver City; the winning competition entry for the new Queens Museum of Art in New York; and important projects in Vienna, Dusseldorf, and St. Petersburg. Eric Owen Moss opened his office in 1973. In addition to practicing, he has taught at Harvard and Yale Universities and was recently appointed the director of the Southern California Institute of Architecture (SCI-Arc). He has received numerous awards for his work, including the Award in Architecture from the American Academy of Arts and Letters in 1999, and the Gold Medal from the Los Angeles chapter of the American Institute of Architects in 2001. His work has been widely exhibited, most recently in the Russian Pavilion at the 2002 Venice Biennale. -- from dust jacket
Eric Owen Moss : buildings and projects 2 by Eric Owen Moss( Book )

Gnostic architecture by Eric Owen Moss( Book )

8 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gnostic architecture is not about faith in a movement, a methodology, a process, a technique, or a technology. It is a strategy for keeping architecture in a perpetual state of motion. Eric Owen Moss is a Los Angeles-based architect. After completing degrees at the University of California at Berkeley and Harvard University, he opened his Los Angeles office in 1973. Moss has lectured throughout the United States and abroad, and has exhibited his work worldwide. He is a member of the board of directors at the Southern California Institute of Architecture and has held teaching chairs at Harvard and Yale Universities. He was one of four American architects selected to exhibit at the 1996 Venice Biennale, and his buildings have been the subjects of numerous monographs. Recently completed buildings include the 100-meter-long Samitaur office block, headquarters for Eastman Kodak in Los Angeles (1996), and the Pittard Sullivan building (1997), headquarters of an international digital design firm. He is currently designing a high-rise tower in Los Angeles, a new town in Spain, and his stealth building is under construction. The definitive statement of Eric Owen Moss' design theory, Gnostic Architecture seeks to expand the discussion of contemporary architecture beyond debates over style or ideology. It does so, however, not by turning to conventional site analysis or fashionable intellectual trends for support, but by emphasizing the architect's personal approach to the act of building. Moss focuses on fundamental questions that face architects who build critically. Gnosticism, he argues, allows the architect to transcend the contradictions encountered along the path that is the practice of architecture, so that the architect may rely on internally derived insights. According to Moss, the measure of an architect's integrity is finally dependent on the architect's own introverted compass and not on external factors. The book, with its unique, trapezoidal shape and suggestive visual character, gives tangible material expression to Moss' poetic sense of the personalized intersection of architecture and culture. -- from dust jacket
