Riassunto: For undergraduate courses in the History of Twentieth Century Architecture, History of Modern Architecture, History of Twentieth Century Art and Architecture, as well as courses in Material Culture Studies.This introductory historical survey reviews a variety of 20th century design movements provoked by the modern architectural movement, and exposes students to a broad spectrum of styles--including art deco, organic, state classicism, and traditional architecture--and their relationship to social, cultural, and political life of the period. Taking into account recent scholarship and critical debates, it helps students understand the implications of colonial and post-colonial themes in 20th century architecture; gender issues in 20th century architecture; and current discussions among architectural and art historians concerning the role of "canons" in the history of 20th century art and architecture. Engaging students in the lively and on-going debate of how 20th century designers, architects, and engineers conceptualized, fabricated, and evaluated their buildings and environments, the book treats architecture as a broad field of activity in which different conceptions of the built environment coexist and their respective merits are continually debated by designers, patrons, and the general public. Organized into three major periods, it presents a concise yet very ample survey of 20th century architecture that is flexible enough to meet today's diverse course and assignment needs.
Dal retro di copertina:
What is the appropriate architecture for modern times? Should it free itself from the shackles of earlier forms? Or should the received wisdom of the past be incorporated into new buildings? Architects and critics have debated these questions for over a century. Rather than validate a particular ideology, Dennis Doordan's thoughtful, wide-ranging survey follows the progression of modern architecture as a manifestation of this debate.
Histories of modern architecture are often conceived as the struggle, triumph, and inevitable exhaustion of high modernism in the United States, Western Europe, and Scandinavia. The reader of Twentieth-Century Architecture will encounter instead a more global and open approach that considers what was possible, desirable, and appropriate during a volatile era of unprecedented opportunities.
There are three parts: Confronting Modernity, 1900-1940; Modernist Hegemony, 1940-1965; and An Era of Pluralism, 1965-2000. Covering developments in the United States, Latin America, Europe, and Asia, Dennis Doordan discusses the form, function, materials, and technologies of domestic and recreational spaces, workplaces, and buildings that reflect the chosen image of the state, and he also provides some treatment of city planning.
Along the way, the reader is treated to a thorough discussion of the work of architects and designers such as Alvar Aalto, Pietro Belluschi, Paul Bonatz, Le Corbusier, Bertram Goodhue, Walter Gropius, Zaha Hadid, Rem Koolhaas, Julia Morgan, Oscar Niemeyer, Marcello Piacentini, Raili and Reima Pietila, Alison and Peter Smithson, James Stirling, Mies van der Rohe, and Frank Lloyd Wright.
