Description:
Leading architects explore the building that most inspired them and explain how it influenced their own work. Well-known contemporary architects choose the buildings from around the world that have inspired them and made a big impact on their own work. Architectural journalist Pamela Buxton interviewed each of the architects to create these outstanding portraits of the buildings that have influenced modern architecture. This diverse selection is introduced by Twentieth Century Society director Catherine Croft, and illustrated throughout with stunning architectural photography by Gareth Gardner and Edward Tyler. The book features a range of inspirational buildings from housing estates to castles, coal mines to cathedrals. Includes work by the giants of twentieth-century architecture including Le Corbusier, Mies van der Rohe and Alvar Aalto, as well as lesser-known gems.
Examples include Richard Rogers (of RHSP) on Maison de Verre (Paris, France), Chris Williamson (of Weston Williamson) on the Eames House by Charles and Ray Eames (Los Angeles, USA), Takero Shimazaki (of TSA, UK) on Hexenhaus by Alison and Peter Smithson (Bad Karlshafen, Germany), Ted Cullinan (of Cullinan Studio) on Chapel of Notre Dame Du Haut by Le Corbusier (Ronchamp, France), Michael Squire (of Squire & Partners, UK) on Grundtvig's Church by Peder Vilhelm Jensen-Klint (Copenhagen, Denmark) and Jonathan Woolf (of Jonathan Woolf Architects) on Haus Esters and Haus Lange by Mies van der Rohe (Krefeld, Ger Please click here to ask a question
