Metageschichte der Architektur ein Lehrbuch für angehende Architekten und Architekturhistoriker by Andri Gerber( )

5 editions published in 2014 in German and English and held by 150 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What is history of architecture and how can it be mediated? How can future architects be interested in the history of architecture in order to locate themselves and determine their own position? This volume discusses the history of architecture in the context of art history, and the relativity of writing histories of architecture is shown through four stories about the Who, What, How, and Why of architecture. This way, Andri Gerber can introduce an adequately structured theory of history - a "meta-history", which creates knowledge that enables the architect to relate to history in his work

The dream factory : Alessi since 1921 by Alberto Alessi( Book )

3 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 83 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A comprehensive look at one of the most influential brands in design, which for decades has epitomized ingenious styling of objects for everyday use. Alessi has been described as a "dream factory," creating products that are artful and poetic yet practical. This beautifully illustrated book details the emergence and success of designs that have since become authentic icons of the domestic landscape, presenting works by notable figures in the design world such as Ettore Sottsass, Achille Castiglioni, Richard Sapper, Alessandro Mendini, Aldo Rossi, Michael Graves, Philippe Starck, Enzo Mari, and Stefano Giovannoni. Their creations embody a thoughtful mixture of eccentricity, playfulness, irony, and elegance. This fascinating volume follows the evolution of the company and explains how certain products have come to be so successful, such as Michael Graves s whistling 9093 tea kettle and Philippe Starck s Juicy Salif juicer, which remain classics decades after their invention. This book is a must-have for design aficionados

Satyendra Pakhalé : culture of creation by Satyendra Pakhalé( Book )

4 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 39 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Satyendra Pakhalé stands at the crossroads of the diverse currents shaping contemporary design. His design work is an act of unity going beyond any binary such as high and low tech, industrial production and traditional crafts, functionality and poetic significance, blurring boundaries of time and place. Satyendra Pakhalé: Culture of Creation, the first comprehensive monograph devoted to his work, explores the way that the designer navigates these currents on multiple levels. Twelve essays by leading design thinkers, Juhani Pallasmaa, Paola Antonelli, Jacques Barsac, René Spitz, Tiziana Proietti, Aric Chen and Stefano Marzano, illustrate the world view and intellectual position underpinning the designer's 'culture of creation'. Contributions from leading industry figures, such as Alberto Alessi, Giulio Cappellini, Cristiano Crosetta and Vittorio Livi portray him at work. Documentary passages give insight into his studio practice, close-up encounters with specific processes and stunning imagery complete a book that can be enjoyed on many levels: a portrait of a unique 'culture of creation'

5 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in French and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cette monographie entend dépasser la simple présentation des réalisations d’un cabinet d’architectes et contribuer à une réflexion sur l’architecture et ses responsabilités. Pour ce faire, il convient de prendre des exemples concrets, comme ceux que nous offre l’atelier GD: des architectures pensées comme objet utile et nécessaire en soi mais dont les résultats sont indissociablement liés à une situation, un cas, une occasion à saisir. Alberto Alessi a ouvert son Atelier à Rome en 1994, puis à Zürich. Il a enseigné dans plusieurs universités et publié de nombreux livres et articles. Il dirige depuis 2008 la revue d’architecture italienne materialegno et a été le curateur de nombreux événements et expositions de portée internationale.
