Whether it be Calatrava's elegant bridges in Seville or Barcelona, Peter Zumthor's beautiful thermal baths in Vals, Switzerland, Dominique Perrault's Bibliotheque Nationale in Paris, or Tadao Ando's museum building on the island Naoshima, these are just a few structures which have been celebrated around the world, making their architects household names. In the 20th century, we have seen striking buildings scatter our town-scapes, awe-inspiring skyscrapers shape our skylines, and beautiful bridges span our rivers. Growing numbers of people are becoming aware of the architectural environment around them and are taking an interest in the issues which are at the heart of our built surroundings....

  • Publisher: Routledge

Looking back over the twentieth century, Hartoonian discusses the work of three major architects: Peter Eisenman, Frank Gehry and Bernard Tschumi, in reference to their theoretical positions and historicizes present architecture in the context of the ongoing secularization of the myths surrounding the traditions of nineteenth century architecture in general, and, in particular, Gottfried Semper's discourse on the tectonic. Providing a valuable contribution to the current debates surrounding architectural history and theory, this passionately written book makes valuable reading for any architect.

Liechtenstein, the Princely Collections

  • Categories: Art

Liechtenstein is one of the smallest European states, a principality situated between Austria and Switzerland in the Upper Rhine Valley. The nation is less than three hundred years old, but the ruling family, whose name it bears, traces its lineage back to the twelfth century. For successive generations, members of the Princely House of Liechtenstein have been devoted art collectors. With a high degree of appreciation of artistic achievement, they have pursued a centuries-long family tradition of acquiring not only great paintings and sculpture but also rare firearms, fine porcelain, and other works of art. The result of this tradition is a collection of masterpieces that in its depth and br...

Architectural Topographies is a critical dictionary for architects and landscape architects in which the graphic lexicon can be read from a beginning, the ground, to a conclusion, the specific case studies. Meant as a tool to help you recognise, analyse, choose, and invent solutions, the book's key words refer to the physical and material relationship between construction and ground; to where and how the link is built; to the criteria, methods, and tools used to know and transform the ground; and to the possible approaches to the place and their implications on the way the earth is touched. Fifty case studies by forty-six of the greatest architects of the previous hundred years are represent...

Das 1984 gegrA1/4ndete ArchitekturbA1/4ro Burkhalter + Sumi hat von Anfang an weit A1/4ber die Schweiz hinaus Beachtung gefunden. Der Um- und Neubau des Hotel ZA1/4richberg (1995) brachte internationale Anerkennung. Bemerkenswert ist Burkhalter und Sumis innovativer Umgang mit Holz, die subtile an Le Corbusier geschulte Farbgebung und die FA1/4gung von BaukArpern zu A1/4berzeugenden Raumsequenzen. GebAude, die in ihrer kompromiAlosen ModernitAt Ruhe, Klarheit und Harmonie ausstrahlen und zugleich eine geheimnisvolle KomplexitAt aufweisen. Diese Publikation dokumentiert erstmals umfassend ihr Werk anhand von 25 Bauten und Projekten, Schwerpunkte bilden die folgenden Themen: Schulen, Hotels, Wohnbauten, Umstrukturierungen und Holzbauten. Alle Aufnahmen stammen vom renommierten Architekturfotografen Heinrich Helfenstein.
