Martin Filler - Makers Of Modern Architecture Vol2

Makers Of Modern Architecture Vol2 PDF download
In this much-anticipated sequel to his critically acclaimed "Makers of Modern Architecture" (2007) longtime" New York Review of Books" contributor Martin Filler probably the best all-round architecture critic currently working in the United States, according to the architectural journalist David Cohn offers another penetrating series of concise but authoritative studies on leading exponents of the building art from the late nineteenth to the early twenty-first century. Exemplifying his belief that an architect s personality and character have a direct and profound bearing on this most public and social of art forms, Filler s lively melding of biographical and aesthetic perspectives gives these accessible yet scrupulously researched interpretations a rare human immediacy. From profiles of such universally admired masters as Frank Lloyd Wright and Le Corbusier to emerging figures including Michael Arad, creator of New York City s National September 11 Memorial, and the international design collaborative Snohetta, Filler s shifting focus remains consistently trained on the enduring values of great architecture. His panoramic vision encompasses the historically inspired Gilded Age urbanism of the celebrated New York bon vivant Stanford White as well as the expressive collages of ancient and modern elements orchestrated by the reclusive Venetian intellectual Carlo Scarpa. The increasing role of women in architecture is given special emphasis in this new collection, from the pioneering work in 1920s Germany of Margarete Schu tte-Lihotzky, inventor of the standardized modern kitchen, to such innovative contemporary practitioners as Elizabeth Diller, Kazuyo Sejima, and Billie Tsien."
