Beyond the Minimal: Artec,Adolf Kirschanitz,Pauhof,Riegler-Riewe (Current Practices)
Peter Allison
1870890833
July 2004
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
Beyond the Minimal presents four of the most interesting practices in Austria today: Artec, Adolf Krischanitz, PauHof and Riegler-Riewe. Certain qualities of formal reduction are evident in the work of all four architects, but none of them equates minimalism with negation or absence, in the sense that the term has been used in writings on architecture. They have been brought together because of the affinities in their approach -- their common interest in materials, structure and the contribution of the building to the larger environment. Each practice is represented by a survey of around a dozen projects, including houses, schools, offices and exhibition pavilions. The survey is complemented by texts that link the work to broader developments in European (particularly Swiss) architecture.

Minimal Architecture

Book Description
This trenchant re-examination of minimalism in architecture helps deepen our understanding of a style as diverse as the artists who practice it. What is minimalism? Or, more specifically, what isn’t? In this fascinating aesthetic voyage three experts in the field of architecture and art history trace the development of minimalism as a style and offer perspectives on the directions the movement is taking as it morphs toward the future. In double-page spreads filled with color photographs of the most innovative minimalist projects, this book illustrates three principal movements: the traditional, as practiced by Herzo & de Meuron, Peter Zumthor, Tadao Ando; the ambiguous, in which architects not commonly associated with minimalism, such as OMA or Zaha Hadid, use it for specific projects; and the subversive, which...
