In the three decades following World War II, a group of architects centered in the Puget Sound region were designing buildings of extraordinary quality, whose most evident commonality was the use of wood in profusion, as exposed, meticulously detailed structure and as interior and exterior surface. Gene Zema, a 1950 graduate of the University of Washington and a student of the legendary Lionel Pries, was one of this group. In a career that spanned twenty years, Zema designed forty-six houses, seven clinics, two architectural offices, a nursery, and a golf clubhouse, and he participated in the design of two University buildings. He built several buildings with his own hands, developing a consummate sense of appropriate design in wood. The luxuriantly crafted details and uniquely dramatic spatial compositions of his work place it at the forefront of that remarkable movement.

Alvar Aalto remains Finlands greatest architect, retains his place among the Modern Masters of twentieth-century architecture and is now recognized internationally as one of the worlds greatest architects of all time. For Finland, Aalto, through his architecture, furniture, glassware and sculpture, contributed perhaps more than any other Finn to the creation of the cultural identity of the new independent Finland and its promotion around the world. His Finnish Pavilions in Paris and New York from the Thirties placed Finland centre-stage, establishing its identity as a modern, innovative country and generated huge interest in this northern land of lakes and forests. He went on to work in 18 countries around the world, as well as designing many of FinlandÆs most important buildings of the 50s, 60s and 70s.

This artist book is the most comprehensive survey of Novembre''s interior architecture and product design. In little over a decade Fabio Novembre has made a name for himself with eye-candy interiors, spectacular installations, and lush yet functional product designs. Novembre is a solo voice in today''s chorus of minimalism, creating interiors, furniture, designs, and installations by mixing old and new materials, setting the time zone between Byzantium and Blade Runner. Strong and eloquent, in no way humble or soft-spoken, his architecture is radically explicit and manifest. He interweaves the pleasures of living with high design seemingly with perfect ease to create environments as he himself experiences them: intensely, and on a vibrantly personal level. This book is a comprehensive survey of Novembre''s designs to date, including the Blumarine store in London, the S.O.S. chair, and his chaise lounge for Cappellini, poetic creations that stir the often-lazy territories of communication and

The Austrian Cultural Forum: one of New YorkÆs most unusual buildings, and the chief work by the recently deceased architect Raimund Abraham Architectural historian Kenneth Frampton called the Austrian Cultural Forum, designed by Austrian architect and theorist Raimund Abraham (1933û2010), the most spectacular modern structure built in New York since the Seagram Building and Frank Lloyd WrightÆs Guggenheim Museum. With a width of 7.6 meters and a depth of 25 meters, the 24-story tower with its symmetrical glass façade fits perfectly into ManhattanÆs 52nd Street. Despite the extremely narrow plot of land, Abraham succeeded in producing extraordinary stylistic elements that elude any architectural trend. This is the first monograph on the building after eight years of vigorous use, and numerous photos and multi-faceted material present the various features of the structure. Contributions on the significance of the institution in AustriaÆs domestic and foreign policy, on AbrahamÆs work, and aesthetic ideas

In larger projects these days, architects are often purely service providers: under the control of those responsible for the project or the general contractors, the architecture is cut and trimmed for reasons of costwith all the consequences we can increasingly observe in our cities. There is a way out of this dilemma, one that strengthens the position of the architect and at the same time permits higher quality architecture, as is demonstrated by the architects Geninasca Delefortrie in Neuchatel, Switzerland. They are their own clients; they identify properties with potential for development and work with the cities in question to develop building plans and concepts. This monograph does not so much focus on the projects as it does on showing, based on the example of Geninasca Delefortrie s particular approach, the opportunities that architecture and architects have to influence in a positive way project development, the awarding of contracts, and urban planning in general.

Peter Zumthor

Architecture that is meant to have a sensuous connection to life calls for thinking that goes far beyond form and construction. In his texts, Peter Zumthor articulates what motivates him to design his buildings, which appeal to the visitor''s heart and mind in so many different ways and possess a compelling and unmistakable presence and aura. Now in its third edition, this book has been expanded to include two new essays: "Architecture and Landscape" deals with the relationship between the structure and its surroundings, with the secret of the successful placement and topographical integration of architecture. In "The Leis Houses" Peter Zumthor describes the genesis of two wooden houses in the town of Leis in the Swiss canton of Graubunden, thus thematizing the special challenge of integrating contemporary architecture into a traditional architectural context.

One of the twentieth century''s most important design visionaries, German architect and structural engineer Frei Otto (b. 1925) made his mark with a series of super-light tensile structuresùsuch as the West German Pavilion for Montreal''s Expo 67 and the Olympic Stadium in Munich (1972)ùthat are celebrated for their technical ingenuity and material efficiency. Yet despite Otto''s achievements, relatively little has been published on his work. A Conversation with Frei Otto features a comprehensive interview with Otto as well as his critical text Fundamentals of a Future Architecture in its entirety. In his conversation with Juan María Songel, Otto talks freely about everything from his early connections to the Bauhaus to his thoughts on the current state of engineering and architecture. The latest in our Conversations series, this book also includes images of Otto''s most important and well-known works.

Joseph Urban is a lavish celebration of this prolific artist, architect, and designer, whose accomplishments include magnificent Art Deco buildings, spectacular Ziegfeld Follies productions, and dramatic sets for the Metropolitan Opera. Joseph Urban (1872û1933) began his career as an architect and artist in Vienna before moving to America in 1911. In 1914 he moved to New York, where he ultimately signed on as set designer of the Metropolitan Opera. He also became immersed in an astonishing array of outside projects, designing nightclubs, hotel lounges, skyscrapers, theaters, stage and film sets, and even childrenÆs books. Though his creative output was immense, little remains of his work except the Mar-a-Lago in Palm Beach, and the New School and the base of the Hearst Tower in New York.
