residential complex in Milan; the Hotel Il Palazzo in Fukuoka, Japan; and Il Teatro del Mondo, a temporary floating theater created in 1979 for the Venice Bienniale.

Theoretical Anxiety and Design Strategies in the Work of Eight Contemporary Architects
Rafael Moneo
0262134438
May 2004
Hardcover
·
 
Review
"Moneo's insights and analyses are often brilliant, and his perspective as a Spaniard and as a former chair of the GSD (Harvard Graduate School of Design) is a unique one. He conveys his ideas in lively prose, peppered with anecdotes." -- Architectural Record
"Theoretical Anxiety and Architectural Strategies in the Work of Eight Contemporary Architects... keeps the "live" feel of a master performance. The result is an exacting but easy read that unfolds like a novel by Italo Calvino. ... Moneo moves beyond the common denominator of form to touch on the rich complexity of what architecture is. In the sense that architecture is between the lines, you have to read between the lines of this book." -- Bernard Tschumi, The Architect’s Newspaper

Architecture of the City
Aldo Rossi

January 1982
Textbook Paperback
·
 
Book Description
Aldo Rossi, a practicing architect and leader of the Italian architectural movement La Tendenza, is also one of the most influential theorists writing today. The Architecture of the City is his major work of architectural and urban theory. In part a protest against functionalism and the Modern Movement, in part an attempt to restore the craft of architecture to its position as the only valid object of architectural study, and in part an analysis of the rules and forms of the city's construction, the book has become immensely popular among architects and design students.

An Oppositions Book.

Architecture in Photography
Paolo Rosselli
8884910145
November 2001
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
This book is like a journey through the modern architecture of the 20th century and, at the same time, an aesthetic and conceptual reflection on photographic vision. Paolo Rosselli, one of the leading exponents of landscape photography in Italy since the early 1980s, has assembled in this volume the traces of a multi-form, antagonistic, problematic itinerary through some of the icons of the Modern Movement and an overview of the more advanced international contemporary architecture. The works of Aldo Rossi, Luigi Moretti, Le Corbusier, Rafael Moneo, Frank O Gehry, Santiago Caltrava, Frank Lloyd Wright, Herzog & De Meuron, Rem Koolhaas and others become an opportunity to reflect through photography on Modern spatiality in relation to the city, its profile, and its interior landscape.

Colours Are like the Wind: Jean Pfaff's Colour Interventions in Architecture
Heinrich Helfenstein
3764365420
November 2001
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
Jean Pfaff's colour interventions in architecture are not just a matter of art in buildings, rather they are an exciting dialogue between colour and space. The chromatic modifications allow materials to assume a different appearance, to seem insubstantial, and they are a vital factor in the visual interplay between inside and outside spaces. Areas of dynamic colours alternate with indirect colour effects and reflections which enrich the ambiance of the building. With expressive photographs and enlightening texts, Heinrich Helfenstein reveals the quality and range of Jean Pfaff's interventions, using examples including Peter Zumthor's Kapelle Sogn Benedetg, Meili und Peter's School for Forestry, Biel, and Schrodt Architects' office building at Iserlohn. Jean Pfaff, born in 1945, studied in Munich and Hamburg before...

The Familiar and Unfamiliar in Twentieth-Century Architecture
Jean La Marche
025202785X
February 2003
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
This ambitious study uses the concept of the familiar and the avant-garde practice of defamiliarization to reexamine some of the most important buildings of the twentieth century. In approaching the history of twentieth-century Western architecture from the perspective of the architectural subject -- the person architects imagine experiencing their work -- Jean La Marche reveals new insights into the ways humans are imagined in relation to architecture. The Familiar and the Unfamiliar in Twentieth-Century Architecture examines the work -- written and built -- of four seminal twentieth-century architects and firms: Frank Lloyd Wright, Le Corbusier, Aldo Rossi, and the partnership of Robert Venturi and Denise Scott Brown. In separate chapters devoted to analyzing the early writings and architecture of each...
