SORIANO RAPHAEL

250,95 zł Cena
Born in Rhodes, Soriano brought an outsider's perspective when he arrived in Los Angeles with little grasp of English in 1924, at the age of 17. After first studying French literature and music, he graduated with an architecture degree from the University of Southern California and thereafter worked in the offices of Rudolph Schindler and Richard Neutra, and for Los Angeles County, finally starting his own practice in Los Angeles in 1936. Soriano expertly combined two of World War II's technological innovations, aluminium and plywood, with advanced construction processes. His characteristic horizontal roofs, transparent exterior walls, and open plan responded well to the postwar demand for family-friendly housing and an informal, indoor-outdoor lifestyle that was well suited to the benign Southern Californian climate. Independent-minded and often irascible, Soriano's architectural contribution has been largely overlooked until now. An architect's architect, he tapped the burgeoning Southern California aerospace and steel industries for his architectural experiments. His advocacy of prefabricated, modular construction using a minimum of materials often alienated him from the traditional building industry and developers. Moreover, his buildings have suffered inordinate damage; although he designed 150 buildings and built 38 during his career, little more than a dozen projects remain standing. In 1953, weary of his persistent scrapes with the architecture establishment in Southern California, Soriano relocated to Tiburon, near San Francisco, where he designed and built housing for the maverick developer Joseph Eichler, as well as innovative aluminium housing and an office tower, and the IBM Research Laboratory in San Jose. This monograph provides a well-researched written account of the architect's life and oeuvre. It includes a complete biography, an in-depth examination of 30 key Soriano buildings, and a listing of complete works that documents for the first time every known project in Soriano's archive, with bibliographic references. In addition to previously unpublished original plans and drawings, this volume features approximately 160 photographs by renowned architectural photographer Julius Shulman, who was a close friend of Soriano and documented his work over a period of 40 years.

ON TOUR WITH RENZO PIANO

A personal tour through some of the key buildings by the Renzo Piano Workshop. Each project is introduced with text by Renzo Piano himself and colour photographs take the reader on a visual guide around each building. This book features 25 built projects presented chronologically, starting from the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris and including the Beyeler Foundation in Basel, the Potsdamer Platz masterplan in Berlin and the Renzo Piano Workshop in Genoa. The book will be published in English, French, German and Italian. Renzo Piano - winner of the Pritzker Prize, 1998 - is an architect whose work seems increasingly relevant to our times. Always challenging and surprising, each new design never fails to be innovative and exciting and to capture the imagination of his admirers. One of the few architects to be intimately involved in each stage of a building's development, from its concept and masterplan to its construction and detailing, Renzo's insights into his own projects are revealing and insightful. In this new publication, the reader is offered the rare opportunity to experience the key buildings of the Workshop with Renzo Piano himself. Featuring approximately 25 built projects, Renzo Piano introduces each building through personal text, followed by a photographic guide which takes the reader from the external to the internal of each project on a frame by frame tour. Projects featured range from urban works such as the Potsdamer Platz masterplan, to the acclaimed Beyeler Foundation and the Jean Marie Tjibaou Cultural Centre in New Caledonia. The Renzo Piano Building Workshop is characterized by its sensitivity to site and local tradition as well as by its combination of traditional materials and techniques with those from the cutting edge of technology.

From Egypt and Classical Greece and Rome through the building booms of the Gothic era and the Renaissance, and from the Industrial Revolution to the present era of digital modeling, "Building: 3,000 Years of Design, Engineering, and Construction" charts centuries of innovations in engineering and building construction. This comprehensive and heavily illustrated volume, aimed at students and young professionals as well as general readers, explores the materials, classic texts, instruments, and theories that have propelled modern engineering, and the famous and not-so-famous buildings designed through the ages, from the Parthenon to Chartes Cathedral and the dome of St. Peter's, from eighteenth-century silk mills in England to the Crystal Palace, and on to the first Chicago high-rises, the Sydney Opera House, and the latest "green" skyscrapers.

ALVARO SIZA: COMPLETE WORKS

187,95 zł Cena
The Portuguese architect Alvaro Siza (b.1933) is one of the world's most respected architects. The recipient of many awards, including the prestigious Pritzker Prize for Architecture in 1992, Siza has built and taught in Portugal and internationally since the late 1950s. This monograph is a comprehensive study of Siza's work, from his early built work - the Boa Nova Tea House, Portugal (1958-63) - to his latest projects. Siza has received critical acclaim for works in Germany (Schlesisches Tor, Berlin), Spain (Galician Centre for Contemporary Art, Santiago de Compostela), Italy (restoration of the Campo di Marte, Venice) and Portugal (Portugese Pavilion at Expo '98, Lisbon). His projects have been exhibited widely. Siza's architecture is vigorous and coherent and distinctively apt to respond to the environment without detracting from its functional and stylistic identity. This book charts over 40 years of work to cover built works, projects, writings, photographs, drawings and many of Siza's sketches. An extensive introduction by Kenneth Frampton describes the works' evolution, while writings by Siza himself are interspersed throughout the volume, offering a unique personal perspective to his work and to twentieth-century architecture as a whole.
