AV Monografías 256: Houses 2023
1 of 6
If there is no doubt that ‘size matters’, and that scale is one of the main factors in architecture, it is also true that the propositional interest of a building is independent from its size. To support this argument, the sixteen houses selected here represent the very different strategies and dimensions that can address domestic space. With size as organising element, the issue starts with a minimum shelter of less than 30 square meters in southern Australia, and includes examples that range from careful interventions on heritage to daring typological experiments, ending at the Chilean Andes with a large house-studio of over 2,000 square meters.

Gustav Klimt: Interiors
1 of 4
This unique and utterly fascinating appreciation of Gustav Klimt’s oeuvre reveals some of his most famous works in their original settings and offers valuable historic insight into his artistic vision. Interior design was extremely important to Gustav Klimt, and many of his paintings were suited to specific settings. That aspect of his work comes beautifully to life in this book. It illustrates how some of the artist’s most beloved canvases appeared in private homes and public exhibition spaces. Works such as the much-admired portraits of Adele Bloch-Bauer, Emilie Flöge, and Sonja Knips, shocking allegories such as Nuda Veritas and Hope I, and verdant landscapes are shown as they appeared in situ during Klimt’s lifetime. Full-color reproductions of the Klimt paintings are juxtaposed with historic black-and-white photographs documenting the original interiors with the featured paintings overlaid in color. Thoughtful and personal texts by Klimt scholar Tobias G. Natter accompany each major painting, providing valuable notes about the origin and context of the works, their settings, and Klimt’s early collectors and patrons. Meticulously produced and packaged, this book provides a refreshing perspective on Gustav Klimt, his networks, and his artistic vision, which made him the epitome of Viennese modernism.

Anni and Josef Albers: Art and Life
1 of 4
Featuring more than two hundred and fifty works, including paintings, photographs, drawings, textiles and furniture, this essential volume traces the creative development of Josef and Anni Albers—both instrumental figures in the development of modernism and abstract art. Illustrated profusely throughout, this book features contributions from leading experts in chapters exploring the couple’s relationship and important aspects of their professional partnership, including their meeting at the Bauhaus School and their influential years at Black Mountain College in North Carolina. Wide-ranging essays examine topics such as the influence of Pre-Colombian art; Josef’s masterwork Homage to the Square; Anni’s jewelry and works on paper; Josef’s famed classes at Yale University; and Anni’s years as a graphic designer after her husband’s death. Both artists are celebrated for their lasting achievements in their respective fields—Josef for his color theory classes at Yale, Anni for her innovative use of unconventional materials. Readers will come away with an appreciation for the Albers’ experimentation and innovation; their collaboration and teamwork; their dedication to education and mentorship; and the many ways their work challenged the status quo and continues to inspire artists to do the same.

The Iconic British House Modern: Architectural Masterworks Since 1900
1 of 5
A comprehensive survey of fifty of Britain’s most architecturally significant houses from 1900 to the present, featuring established names alongside the work of fresh emerging talents in the twenty-first century. Covering the major design movements of the past 120 years, including art deco, modernism, and postmodernism, this book also offers a unique insight into changing tastes and attitudes about the home in Britain. The featured houses include examples designed by architects Charles Rennie Mackintosh, Edwin Lutyens, Berthold Lubetkin, Serge Chermayeff, Richard Rogers, and many others. Twenty-first-century innovation and imagination are evidenced in homes by established and emerging talents, such as Seth Stein, Nick Eldridge, Robin Partington, and Ken Shuttleworth. Much more than a celebration of influential houses, this richly illustrated overview is a comprehensive guide to shifting architectural movements and ideas, a survey of great architects with international relevance, and a journey through changing tastes, styles, aesthetics, and patterns of living.

HERMANN KAUFMANN ARCHITEKTEN Architecture and Construction Details
1 of 3
Ecological, durable and climate-friendly: the buildings by Hermann Kaufmann and HK Architekten set standards in a wide variety of aspects. This monograph documents ten future-orientated timber buildings by HK Architekten, which show how softwood and hardwood are used as construction materials in a wide variety of building types and indicate the benefits that result therefrom. Images, blueprints and detailed drawings of the projects, such as the production hall of the SWG screw factory, the valley station of the Nebelhorn cable car in the Alps or the large administration building of Illwerke VKW in Montafon document the completed buildings. The project descriptions also contain structural information and provide targeted insights into the planning and construction process.

architect, verb by Reinier de Graaf
If De Graaf’s debut book 'Four Walls and a Roof' was about debunking myths within the architecture profession, 'architect, verb' aims to debunk myths projected onto architecture by the outside world – a rebuttal of doctrines which have been applied to architecture over the last twenty years. The incorporation of extraneous terms such as “livability”, “innovation” or “wellbeing” into the glossary of architecture is part of an ongoing trend in which the language to debate architecture is less and less architects' own, and more and more that of outside forces imposing outside expectations. Once a profession known for its manifestos, architecture finds itself increasingly forced to adopt ever-more extreme postures of virtue, held accountable by the world of finance, the social sciences or the medical sector.

The Architecture of Public Space
1 of 2
This new book by Labics, one of Italy’s leading architectural firms, is devoted to the country’s architecture of public space. Galleries, loggias, porticoes, steps, and courtyards, are the elements that characterize Italy’s historic towns and cities—and that make the experience of its public space so intense. Yet the volume does not feature new designs by Labics themselves: rather, Maria Claudia Clemente, Francesco Isidori, and their collaborators set out to explore historic spaces, to analyze their histories and typologies, and to document and describe them through newly taken photographs, plans, and diagrams, treating them as contemporary artifacts. Through the illustration and categorization of thirty-two case studies, The Architecture of Public Space has the ambition to build a general theory on the design of public space; a theory that acts before and independently of language and that is based on the idea that the city is structured through the relationship between architecture and public space. With an essay written by Marco Biraghi, professor of history of contemporary architecture at the Politecnico di Milano. 2023, paperback, 468 pages, 118 color and 271 b/w illustrations, 23 x 31 cm

SMALL HOUSES, Philip Jodidio
1 of 2
A Small House is a tribute to the endless artistic inventiveness of architects and ingenuity of perception of the familiar and known concepts. It is also a conscious pivot towards sustainability and reduction of impact on the environment as well as a daring attitude of change in lifestyle. As humanity faces inevitable pressures such as climate change, an increase in population, and strain on resources, these solutions are helping shape what the world may look like in the future. Whether in the dense urban areas of Tokyo, the wilderness of Australia, the woods of Canada, or a rooftop in Ecuador, this is the world of Small Houses. The one common point they share, is that they all have an area of no more than 100 square meters. Spanning 25 countries such as Brazil, Hungary, South Korea, Netherlands, USA, Japan, and Australia, described here there are houses designed by 57 architects, including Takeshi Hosaka’s Love2 House, Aranza de Ariño’s Casa Tiny, and the work of Jakub Szczęsny, Charles Pictet, Lada Hršak, BIG, and Fran Silvestre, among others. This is a journey not only through recent evolutions in architectural design and creativity, but it is also a step toward a more sustainable world.

The Life and Work of Luis Barragan
1 of 2
Luis Barragan is an icon of contemporary architecture-a genius of color, light, walls, the garden, the tower, the rooftop, he has influenced an entire generation of current architects, not least of them his one-time collaborator Ricardo Legorreta. Admirers of his work note its serenity, its harmony. In 1979, when Barragan was presented the Pritzker Prize, his work was referred to as "a sublime act of the poetic imagination." It is this aspect of Barragan's work that is presented in The Life and Work of Luis Barragan, a biographical portrait that reveals Barragan as a master of what he himself called "emotional architecture." Text and photographs combine in The Life and Work of Luis Barragan for a personal and evocative portrayal of the Mexican master that will fascinate everyone familiar with his legacy, and intrigue those who are only just discovering the power and influence of his work.

a+u 04:23 Alvar Aalto Library Landscapes
1 of 2
ten public libraries designed by Finnish architect Alvar Aalto between the 1920s and 1970s. It was after the completion of the Vyborg Library, a project which began in 1927 and took seven years to complete, that the architect started to gain international recognition. While designing Vyborg Library, Aalto discovered “fantastic mountain landscapes”, leading him to create valley-like depressions as spaces for people to gather and read, surrounded by stepped terraces of bookshelves and natural light. Among the libraries presented here are Rovaniemi City Library, Woodberry Poetry Room at Harvard University, Wolfsburg Cultural Center, and Mount Angel Abbey. 176 p, ills colour & bw, 22 x 29 cm, pb, Japanese/English
