Описание: Small enough to fit in a pocket yet serious enough to provide real answers, this is the ultimate field guide to understanding modern architecture. This eighth entry in Rizzoli's popular How to Read... series is a one-stop guide to understanding the world's iconic modern buildings: an indispensable pocket-sized guide to the architecture of the modern era. This volume takes the reader on a tour of modern architecture through its most iconic and significant buildings, showing how to read the hallmarks of each architectural style and how to recognize them in the buildings. From Art Deco and Arts and Crafts through Bauhaus, the International Style, and Modernism to today's environmental architecture and the rise and fall of the -starchitect-, all the major architectural movements from the 1900s to the present day are traced through their classic buildings. Examining the key architectural elements and hidden details of each style, we learn what to look for and where to look for it. Filled with detailed drawings, plans, and photographs, this book is a fascinating architectural history--a must-read for anyone with an interest in architecture, urbanism, and modern design.

Описание: Homecoming presents work by an emerging generation of Chinese architects that uses unique design and working approaches to resist generic mass construction and foreign iconic building. In particular, these architects are offering resistance against the rapid urbanization that has dominated the Chinese landscape. By responding to a local Chinese context, they have raised the avant-garde of China's architectural design practice in recent years.
The title of the book has multiple meanings for the featured architects. For some, “homecoming” is returning back to China after they have studied and lived abroad. Others understand working with the rural as “coming home” to discover their ancestors and traditional roots. All may also refer to personal memories and perceptions they have of the Chinese countryside.

Описание: The founder of the blog A Daily Dose of Architecture, John Hill, is obsessed with his subject and determined to expose his fellow citizens to the glorious structures that shape our environment. In this beautifully designed compendium Hill presents his selection of the most significant building to be built each year from 1916 to 2015. Each two-page spread includes one or two large color photos and text that explains the importance of each structure. Starting with H. P. Berlage's Holland House in London and closing with Diller Scofidio + Renfro's newly completed Broad museum in Los Angeles, Hill has combed the globe for iconic buildings. Notable inclusions are Helsinki Railroad Station; the Solimar Building in Cuba; Le Corbusier's Mill Owners' Association building in Ahmadabad, India; Habitat 67, a housing complex in Montreal; and Tadao Ando's Church of the Light in Osaka, Japan. What makes this collection so extraordinary is Hill's criteria for the buildings included: each must be able to be seen, approached, or explored by the average person. An introductory essay and a timeline that highlights important architectural events round out this engrossing survey that demonstrates the underlying themes and developments in the world of architecture today.

Описание: Jorn Utzon received worldwide fame as the architect of the Sydney Opera House, but his much larger body of work has a breadth and depth that is of great importance for modern architectural history. And yet, little is known of his work outside of academic architectural circles. Arguably the most important Danish architect of the twentieth century, Utzon pioneered the movement for modern architecture to reconnect with its particular place and time without abandoning the techniques and materials that made it accessible to larger audiences. Modernism, for Utzon, didn't need to sacrifice particularity and local character in order to retain relevance and his widely varied work around the globe--from the National Assembly in Kuwait to the Bagsvaerd Church in Denmark and of course the Opera House in Sydney--is a testament to this approach's success. This book is a collection of these successes, told thematically so that Utzon's integral approach and lasting effects might be understood for what they are--at once particular and universal.

Описание: Baltimore was an innovator in the development of cast-iron architecture, but the citys heritage of buildings in this genre, once numbering more than a hundred, has dwindled to only a handful today. The Baltimore region also had a long tradition in iron production, beginning with the colonial era and continuing through the 1950s as Sparrows Point became the single largest steel complex in the world. Baltimores Cast-Iron Buildings is a celebration of a unique aspect of Baltimores architectural and industrial history. The authors examine cast-iron buildings in an integrated way to show how the material was fabricated and the buildings erected. They also explore the cast and wrought ironwork used for gates, fences, railings, and ornaments. The heavily illustrated work includes ironwork catalogs from the mid-1800s.

Описание: One of the more exciting realities of 21st-century life is that objects are now able with the help of embedded technology to sense, think, act and communicate. Very soon, every building, city and landscape component will be equipped with communicative and computational capacities: we shall be surrounded by sentient architecture. This book documents the role of architecture in shaping this new reality in multiple research trajectories launched and guided by the authors at The University of Toronto, MIT, Harvard Graduate School of Design and the University of Hong Kong. The projects establish an interdisciplinary platform involving artists, designers, scientists and engineers spanning different institutions and continents in a technological approach to spatial problems that is attuned to the dynamics of living systems. The collective aim is to develop from the collaborative experiments a digitally enhanced architecture that is well-equipped to handle persistent and emerging challenges in building a healthy and sustainable environment.
