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.

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.

Late in his career, the influential Dutch architect is still going strong. An advocate of the architect as a surfer of political and aesthetic waves, Rem Koolhaas embodies one who refuses to stay still when times change. This special issue celebrates his most recent output, featuring 20 buildings completed since 2000 (The Rotterdam, Seattle Central Library, Shenzhen Stock Exchange) and ten projects still in progress (Chu Hai College, PEX Toulouse). An introductory essay takes stock not only of his work but of Koolhaas himself, while ten brief texts focus on his latest period and a dozen essays published at different points in his career offer a retrospective view.

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.

Few figures tower over modern architecture and city life like Le Corbusier. His dramatic rethinking of the principles and aims of architectural design made a profound impression on the spaces of twentieth-century cities and the ways that people lived in them. Le Corbusier- The Measure of Man offers the most up-to-date picture we have of Le Corbusier''s achievement. A new generation of researchers and curators looks in particular at his life-long study of the human proportion and how the human body should be housed. Created to accompany a breathtakingly ambitious retrospective at the Centre Pompidou in Paris, the book traces Le CorbusierÆs life and work from his earliest days through his greatest successes and lasting influences. It covers not only his iconic building designs and bold plans for city centers, but also presents a substantial exploration of his achievements as a painter and sculptor as well. Lavishly illustrated with nearly five hundred imagesùthree-quarters of them

The Musée des Confluences in Lyon was opened in 2014. It was created by Wolf D. Prix of the Coop Himmelb(l)au team, which was founded in the 1970s. Many avant-garde groups from those wild years are now consigned to the past, but the Coop Him-melb(l)au architecture firm is more in demand than ever. Functioning as a museum of human history, this impressive concrete, metal and glass colossus truly does appear to float above the peninsula at the con-fluence of the Rhône and the Saône. This Opus volume deals with the origins, construction, function and formal appearance of the Musée des Confluences, and also offers a preliminary theoretically based evaluation of the architecture of the building.

Understated excellence: The architect of the extraordinary ordinary. From Berlin to Beirut, David Chipperfield (born 1953) aspires to an architecture founded on collaboration, ideas, and excellence. His buildings are intended as physically immediate spaces in which a sort of ordinariness becomes remarkable, and by which the individual structure co-exists with broader concepts of city building. Chipperfield''s vision has driven major projects around the globe, from the famed rebuilding of the Neues Museum in Berlin, Germany to the Amorepacific Headquarters in Seoul. His architec­tural practice has won many international competitions and numerous awards and citations for design excellence. In vivid images and accessible texts, this book covers Chipperfield''s most striking projects to introduce the architect suspicious of ôstarchitecture, but nevertheless a global star on the architecture stage.
