Programs and Manifestoes on 20th-Century Architecture
Ulrich Conrads (Editor)
0262530309
January 1970
Textbook Paperback
·
 
Book Description
The present volume offers eloquent testimony that many of the master builders of this century have held passionate convictions regarding the philosophic and social basis of their art. Nearly every important development in the modern architectural movement began with the proclamation of these convictions in the form of a program or manifesto. The most influential of these are collected here in chronological order from 1903 to 1963. Taken together, they constitute a subjective history of modern architecture; compared with one another, their great diversity of style reveals in many cases the basic differences of attitude and temperament that produced a corresponding divergence in architectural style. In point of view, the book covers the aesthetic spectrum from right to left; from programs that rigidly generate designs...

August 2000
Hardcover

Review
While Adolf Loos is well known as one of the key representatives of early modernist architectures, holding his own next to such figures as Louis Sullivan, Frank lloyd Wright and Otto Wagner, a wider public does not yet know the scope of his work and writings. Janet Stewart's fascinating new study fianlly provides a corrective to this limited and specialized reception of Loos.–Modernism/Modernity

Stewarts book marks a departure from previous exploratons of Loo's writings... Stewart offers a remarkably lucid, nuanced and often perceptive account of Loo's texts and their cultural frame. Her meticulously crafted analysis operates, she tells us, through the parallel processes of decosntruction, assemblage and reconstruction. ... This method works very well in documenting the oppositions that underlie much of Loo's...

Otto Wagner, Adolf Loos, and the Road to Modern Architecture
Werner Oechslin
0521623464
January 2002
Hardcover
·
 
Review
"In this collction of essays, as concise as they are broad- ranging and erudite, oechslin explored the multiple implications for modernity of two key, and co-dependent terms of 19-th century art theory, and offered an adroitly selected anthology of excerpts from architectural theories." Harvard Design Magazine

"Those interested in a narrative review of writings on architecture, presented with intensity and in detail, will be pleased with, informed by, and interested in Oechslin's offering." Centropa

Book Description
Contemporary architectural theory emphasizes the importance of "tectonics," the term used to articulate the relationship among construction, structure, and architectural expression. Yet, little consideration has been given to the term's origins or historical...

July 2002
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
Colquhoun, an eminent scholar in the field of architecture, offers here a new account of international modernism that explores the complex motivations behind this revolutionary movement and assesses its triumphs and failures. The book focuses on the work of the main architects of the movement
such as Frank Lloyd Wright, Adolf Loos, Le Corbusier, and Mies van der Rohe, re-examining their work and shedding new light on their roles as acknowledged masters. The author presents a fascinating analysis of architecture with regard to politics, technology, and ideology, all while offering clear
descriptions of the key elements of the Modern movement.

Colquhoun shows clearly the evolution of the movement from Art Nouveau in the 1890s to the mega-structures of the 1960s, revealing the often-contradictory demands of...


Privacy and Publicity: Modern Architecture as Mass Media
Beatriz Colomina
0262531399
April 1996
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
Through a series of close readings of two major figures of the modern movement, Adolf Loos and Le Corbusier, Beatriz Colomina argues that architecture only becomes modern in its engagement with the mass media, and that in so doing it radically displaces the traditional sense of space and subjectivity.

Privacy and Publicity boldly questions certain ideological assumptions underlying the received view of modern architecture and reconsiders the methodology of architectural criticism itself. Where conventional criticism portrays modern architecture as a high artistic practice in opposition to mass culture, Colomina sees the emerging systems of communication that have come to define twentieth-century culture -- the mass media -- as the true site within which modern architecture was produced. She...

Adolf Loos: 1870-1933, Arquitecto, Critico Cultural, Dandi
August Sarnitz
3822827703
April 2004
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
Widely regarded as one of the most significant prophets of modern architecture, Adolf Loos (1870-1933) was a star in his own time, known throughout Vienna as an outspoken, audacious dandy and moralist who defied the establishment. His work not only represented the beginning of modernism, with its stark, unornamented style, but also revolutionized architecture by introducing the concept of "spatial plan" architecture, which allowed for economizing space by designating rooms’ sizes and heights based on their purposes. Loos also published numerous essays during his lifetime, the most notable of which is the oft-misunderstood "Ornament and Crime." --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
