Contemporary concrete buildings. Ediz. inglese, italiana, spagnola e portoghese by Philip Jodidio Pdf
Cemento? Quella roba impersonale usata per costruire parcheggi o palazzoni comunisti? Sì e no. Il termine "cemento" comprende una notevole varietà di sostanze che, usate con giudizio, rappresentano alcuni dei materiali d'elezione dell'architettura contemporanea. Grazie alla sua identità peculiare di "pietra liquida", il cemento è malleabile, duraturo e capace di prodigiose imprese ingegneristiche. Questa edizione presenta le migliori opere in cemento degli ultimi anni, riunendo lavori di star come Zaha Hadid, Herzog & de Meuron e Steven Holl, ma anche giovani e sorprendenti realtà come lo studio di architettura russo SPEECH, stelle nascenti della scena internazionale come il francese Rudy Ricciottie artisti come James Turrell, che ha trasformato la famosa spirale di cemento del Guggenheim di Frank Lloyd Wright a New York nel set di una delle sue più incredibili performance.

Chinese Brutalism Today' is divided into three chapters and ends with a methodological afterword that explains the reasons why the research was carried out and the scientific tools used. The first chapter is "Exposed concrete in the design process," the second is "Identity Research: Towards an Ornate Surface" and the third is "Global ambition: towards a polished surface." The narration takes place through a substantial written part accompanied by specific images that facilitate the understanding of the text. Transversally, in the narrative, an interpretation is given to the precise and ambiguous dictates announced in 2017 by President Xi Jinping: to pursue a contemporary architecture made of "international standards with Chinese characteristics."
Concrete Toronto by Michael McClelland,Graeme Stewart Pdf
Toronto is a concrete city. From international landmarks to civic buildings to cultural institutions to metropolitan infrastructure and the single-family home, reminders of the era of 'brutalist' architecture surround Torontonians. But for how long? As architectural fashion has shifted to the glass-and-steel neomodernism of today, these concrete structures have been increasingly ignored – and in some cases, demolished. Concrete Toronto takes readers on a guided tour of Toronto's concrete architecture. Editors Michael McClelland and Graeme Stewart have assembled a diverse group of industry experts – architects, university faculty, local practitioners, city planners, historians and journalists – to examine the unique and important qualities and the past and future of Toronto's concrete buildings in interviews, articles, archival photos, drawings and case studies. Appealing to both the average reader and the enthusiast, Concrete Toronto provides a refreshing look not only at the neglected buildings, but also at the trends that produced them and the impact and consequences that resulted from their construction.
