Steven Holl/Simmons Hall by Todd Gannon( )

8 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 547 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The award-winning Simmons Hall, completed in 2002, is Steven Holl's 'vertical slice of a city', an urban microcosm on the Massachusetts Institute of Technology campus. Motivated by the sea sponge and the idea of porosity, Holl invents a highly innovative structure that inspires its residents and compels them to revel in the unexpected. Immense interior voids, irregular and arrhythmic geometrical holes that form unexpected public spaces, as well as extraordinarily adaptable modular wooden furnisings, create a kinetic work-in-progress to be dictated by one's experience of the space and the whims of its occupants. Holl, whose tactile architecture has been celebrated as 'buildings that satisfy the spirit as well as the eye', has channeled his love of sculptural shapes, details, and inventive and original use of light, space, color, and material in Simmons Hall to find its rightful place in the company of Alvar Aalto's Baker House, and Eero Saarinen's chapel and his Kresge Auditorium at MIT. [This book] features extensive photographic documentation by Andy Ryan of the construction and finished project. These images are accompanied by an exhaustive graphic presentation of sketches, model, rendering, and working drawings, interviews with Holl, and commentary from architects and critics that examine both the technical and cultural significance of this important structure"--Back cover

Derrida and Eisenman's design process was guided by Plato's chora text from the Timeaus; their unique reciprocal relationship was an interchange - and transformation - of voices
Bernard Tschumi, Zénith de Rouen by Laurie A Gunzelman( )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 321 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Architect Bernard Tschumi is internationally regarded as one of the boldest thinkers in contemporary architecture as well as one of its most inventive formgivers. Translating his bold visions into built structure has always been challenging, and nowhere is this more evident than in the Zenith de Rouen, his recently completed concert hall and exhibition complex in Rouen, France. As one of the most accomplished and seductive of Tschumi's built projects, the Zenith de Rouen stands as a tour-de-force of design, technique, and construction." "Including an exhaustive presentation of sketches, models, computer renderings, working drawings, and photographs of the construction process and the finished work, this book documents the project at a level of detail that allows complete and careful study from its conception to its completion. This in-depth graphic presentation is accompanied by commentaries from the architect, as well as series editors Jeffery Kipnis and Todd Gannon, that further explore both the cultural and technical significance of this important building."--Jacket

"Coop Himmelb(l)au's psychogram technique began as a technique to free architecture from cliches, a renunciation of design methods seen by Prix and Swiczinsky to serve discredited institutions and authorities.

A question of qualities : essays in architecture by Jeffrey Kipnis( Book )

6 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 195 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jeffrey Kipnis's writing, thinking, and teaching casts architecture as both an intellectual discourse and a lived, affective experience. His essays on contemporary architects are less about making critical judgments than about explication, exegesis, and provocation. In these eleven essays, written between 1990 and 2008, he considers projects, concepts, and buildings by some of the most recognized architects working today, with special attention to the productions of affect. He explores "intuition" in the work of Morphosis, "exhilaration" in Coop Himmelb(l)au, "freedom" in the work of Rem Koolhaas and OMA, "magic" in Steven Holl's buildings, and "anxiety" in Rafael Moneo's writing about contemporary architecture. Kipnis's deft integration of art, critical theory, philosophy, pop culture, classical music, and science -- what the volume's editor Alexander Maymind calls "ancillary material"--Into a rigorous architectural theory and criticism makes A Question of Qualities an exemplar of a new way to write about architecture. It is also a distinct pleasure to read. Kipnis transcends the fractious intellectual climate in architecture, stepping outside the boundaries mandated by the vast specialized criteria that the discipline now claims to address. The essays in this volume demonstrate a style of writing that is not so much about architecture as it is an affect of architecture itself
