    This book shows the development of American architecture by tracing specific cases of either of two trends: that which seeks to break up the standard Modernist forms, represented by the likes of Gehry, Eisenman, Owen Moss and Morphosis; and, others, like Jahn and Arquitectonica, who choose to use the modernist vocabulary in new ways. The most accurate image of the current state of architecture must be the sum of the contributions of outstanding creators. Color illustrations throughout. 176p. Pap.

    Craftsman of delightful spaces: David Chipperfield in dialogue"Architecture has to explain itself. It has got to be very clear, what you might call simple."Born in 1953, David Chipperfield worked for both Norman Foster and Richard Rogers before establishing a reputation for himself in Japan in the early 80s, and setting up David Chipperfield Architects in 1984. The practice, which now operates out of London, Berlin, Milan and Shanghai has gone on to win over 50 national and international competitions.Suspicious of "starchitecture", Chipperfield adheres instead to a meticulously crafted minimalism in whichvolumes and light come together in masterful harmony. Less concerned with an immediately recognizable, individual style, he rather aspires to an architecture founded oncollaboration, ideas, and excellence. His buildings are intended as physically immediate spaces in which "a sort of ordinariness" becomes special, and the individual structure co-exists with broader concepts of city building.Chipperfield's vision has driven major projects around the globe, from the Des Moines Public Library in Iowa, USA to the Hepworth Gallery in Wakefield, UK and the famed reconstruction of the Neues Museum in Berlin, Germany. Recent work includes the Museo Jumex in Mexico City and the expansion of theSaint Louis Art Museum, Saint Louis, USA.This monograph features twenty four of Chipperfield's most significant projects, with a thorough introduction, detailed descriptions, and anextensive interview covering his major influences, and guiding principles onstructure, space, and urban experience.

    Architecture as sustainable technologyThe ecological impact of new construction, once a secondary concern, has become a crucial issue. Badly designed buildings guzzle natural resources and pollute their surroundings; in an era of rocketing energy costs and environmental degradation, the need for a sustainable, energy-efficient architecture is paramount. This book features the architects, artists and firms pioneering a new green architecture, and examines the emergent esthetics.

    The mechanics of lightness: The wide-ranging career of the Italian virtuoso “The array of buildings by Renzo Piano is staggering in scope and comprehensive in the diversity of scale, material, and form. He is truly an architect whose sensibilities represent the widest range of this and earlier centuries.” Such was the description of Renzo Piano given by the Pritzker Prize jury citation as they bestowed the prestigious award on him in 1998. Whereas some architects have a signature style, what sets Piano apart is that he seeks simply to apply a coherent set of ideas to new projects in extraordinarily different ways.“One of the great beauties of architecture is that each time, it is like life starting all over again,” Piano says. “Like a movie director doing a love story, a Western, or a murder mystery, a new world confronts an architect with each project.” This explains why it takes more than a superficial glance to recognize Piano’s fingerprints on such varied projects as thePompidou Center in Paris, the Kansai Airport in Osaka, Japan, the Tjibaou Cultural Center in Nouméa, New Caledonia, the Zentrum Paul Klee in Bern, Switzerland, the New York Times Building in New York, and The Shardin London, the tallest building in the European Union.
