Nicolas-Henri Jardin (1720-99) blev født og døde i Frankrig, men blev en af Danmarks største arkitekter. I løbet af de kun seksten år fra 1755 til 1771 virkede han som landets første professor i arkitektur, som chef for den danske bygningsadministration og som arkitekt for en lang række forskellige bygninger, haver og møbler, som han i vid udstrækning også formidlede i grafisk form. Han gik ind for det frie, det logiske og formålstjenlige, og gennem sin undervisning og med værker som Marienlyst og Bernstorff Slotte, Fredensborg Slotshave og Sølvgades kaserne indførte han en helt ny stil, nemlig nyklassicismen, som i hans hænder fik en indlysende enkel og meget dansk karakter. Blandt andre C.F. Harsdorff og C.F. Hansen førte hans tanker videre, og skønt 1800-tallets nationalister hellere satte fokus på danskerne end på franskmanden, er det ubestrideligt den sidste, der er den danske klassicismes fader.

An expanded edition on the master of Modernism, Le Corbusier, by award-winning architectural historian William J. R. Curtis. Originally published in 1996 to critical fanfair, scholar William J.R.

Praise for the first edition: ''This is not only the best single work on Le Corbusier - a model of scholarship, erudite yet eminently readable - it is also an invaluable analysis of the creative architectural process.

Dutch architect, architectural theorist and urban thinker Rem Koolhaas (born 1944) has been a protagonist of the international architectural avant-garde since the 1970s; his numerous worldwide awards include the Pritzker Prize in 2000 for his lifetime achievement. Through a series of essays, this book interprets his many buildings and projects by drawing on Koolhaas'' own theoretical oeuvre of polemics, manifestos, interviews, books such as Delirious New York and his so-called ''design patents''. In these writings, Koolhaas articulates a design method that links theory and practice, whereby an idea is applied to several projects over a period of time, so that it can continuously evolve. This book not only orients this method within architectural history, but also shows how it repositions the function of the authors or the architects themselves.

Wright on: The star pieces of Americas greatest architect. A building by Frank Lloyd Wright (1867-1959) is at once unmistakably individual, and evocative of an entire era. Notable for their exceptional understanding of an organic environment, as well as for their use of steel and glass to revolutionize the interface of indoor and outdoor, WrightÆs designs helped announce the age of modernity, as much as they secured his own name in the annals of architectural genius. This meticulous compilation from TASCHEN''s previous three-volume monograph assembles the most important works from Wright''s extensive, paradigm-shifting oeuvre into one authoritative and accessibly priced overview of America''s most famous architect. Based on unlimited access to the Frank Lloyd Wright Archives in Taliesin, Arizona, the collection spans the length and breadth of Wright''s projects, both realized and unrealized, from his early Prairie Houses, through the Usonian concept home, epitomized by Fallingwater, the Tokyo years, his ''

In 1958, Swiss-French architect and urban planner Le Corbusier designed the Philips Pavilion for the World''s Fair in Brussels. It is the only building the artist produced for a Dutch client. The unconventional pavilion was the setting for the experimental performance ''Le Poème électronique,'' by avant-garde composer Edgard Varèse, seen by one and a half million visitors. Combining film, color, music and light, this event is regarded as the first multimedia performance for the general public. After its demolition in 1959, the pavilion became an icon of 20th-century art. The Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam hosts a scale model of the pavilion and also provides the eight-minute soundtrack of ''Le Poème électronique.'' EYE Filmmuseum, also in Amsterdam, has kept the film footage of the performance. This monograph includes a complete overview of the Philips Pavilion, including its history, construction and detailed documentation of ''Le Poème électronique.''

Visual impact: Nothing says modernist perfection like an Eames design. The creative duo Charles Eames (1907-1978) and Ray Kaiser Eames (1912-1988) transformed the visual character of America. Though best known for their furniture, the husband and wife team were also forerunners in architecture, textile design, photography, and film. The Eames work defined a new, multifunctional modernity, exemplary for its integration of craft and design, as well as for the use of modern materials, notably plywood and plastics. The Eames Lounge Chair Wood, designed with molded plywood technology, became a defining furniture piece of the twentieth century, while the couple''s contribution to the Case Study Houses project not only made inventive use of industrial materials but also developed an adaptable floor plan of multipurpose spaces which would become a hallmark of postwar modern architecture.

That''s Wright! One of the greatest pioneers in the history of architecture. Acclaimed as the father of skyscrapers, the quintessentially American icon Frank Lloyd Wright (1867-1959) was an architect of aspiration. He believed in giving cultivated American life its fitting architectural equivalent and applied his idealism to structures across the continent, from suburban homes to churches, offices, skyscrapers, and the celebrated Guggenheim Museum. Wright''s work is distinguished by its harmony with humanity and its environment, a philosophy he called organic architecture, and which found its paradigm at Fallingwater, a house in rural Pennsylvania, cited by the American Institute of Architects as the best all-time work of American architecture. Wright also made a particular mark with his use of industrial materials, and by the simple L or T plan of his Prairie House which became a model for rural architecture across America. Wright was also often involved in many of the interior community activity.

Less is more: Finding perfection in purity. Famed for his motto less is more, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe (1886-1969) was one of the founding fathers of modern architecture and a hotly-debated tastemaker of twentieth century aesthetics and urban experience. Mies van der Rohe''s philosophy was one of underlying truth in pure forms and proportions. With the help of contemporary technological and material developments, he sought a stripped-down purity to architecture, showcased by the likes of the Seagram Building and Farnsworth House. Some spoke out against this stark approach as the precursor to bland, generic cityscapes. Others cite Mies van der Rohe as the ultimate master of an abdingly elegant essence.

God''s architect: Gaudí''s ravishing symbiosis between built environment and natural world. From the towering Sagrada Família to the shimmering, textured facade of Casa Batlló and the enchanting landscape of Park Güell, it''s easy to see why Antoni Gaudí (1852-1926) gained the epithet God''s architect. With fluid forms and mathematical precision, his work extols the wonder of natural creation: columns soar like tree trunks, window frames curve like flowering branches, and ceramic tiling shimmers like scaly, reptilian skin. With this outstanding attention to natural detail, his inspirations from both neo-Gothic and Orientalist aesthetics, and a lifelong commitment to Catalan identity, Gaudí created a unique brand of the Modernista movement which transformed, and defines, Barcelonas cityscape.

Modern grace: Lyrical forms from Finland. Alvar Aalto (1898-1976) made a unique modernist mark. Influenced by both the landscape and the political independence of his native Finland, he designed warm, curving, compassionate buildings, wholly set apart from the slick, mechanistic, geometric designs that characterized much contemporary European practice. Whether a church, a villa, a sauna, or a public library, Aalto''s organic structures tended to replace plaster and steel with brick and wood, often incoporating undulating, wave-like forms, which would also appear in his chair, glassware, and lamp designs. An adherent to detail, Aalto insisted upon the humanity and societal role of architecture, stating: ôModern architecture does not mean using immature new materials; the main thing is to work with materials towards a more human line.ö Many of his public buildings such as Säynätsalo Town Hall, the lecture theatre at Otaniemi Technical University, the Helsinki National Pensions ravages of war.
