9780847840113: A New Sculpturalism: Contemporary Architecture from Southern California

A comprehensive overview of Southern California’s most experimental architecture, showcasing the highly expressive work of famed architects such as Frank Gehry and Thom Mayne, as well as the best of the new guard. This is the first critical examination and history of what was first identified as the "L.A. School" in the 1990s, which has influenced much of American architecture in the last twenty-five years. This expansive new book examines contemporary Southern California architecture from 1987 to the present, exploring its experimental nature, sculptural tendency, and exciting evolution. This volume complements a major exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, and is part of the Getty Research Institute exhibition initiative "Los Angeles Architecture, 1940–1990." Contributions by leading architectural historians coupled with a stunning collection of images present recent works in terms of sculpturalism and urbanism, and consider the impact of the history and environment of Los Angeles, as well as the creative and working processes.

About the Author:

Christopher Mount is a freelance curator and professor of design history and theory at California Institute of Arts as well as the Otis College of Art and Design. Jeffrey Deitch is the director of the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles.

Review:

"The focus of the book, like the show [at MOCA in Los Angeles], is on the architects that have reshaped Southern California and become some of the most influential practitioners and academics (a two-page spread at the back of the book actually maps the teaching engagements of the various architects) on a global scale: Frank Gehry, Thom Mayne, Eric Owen Moss, Michael Rotondi, Greg Lynn, Neil Denari, Michael Maltzan, and lots of others." ~Archidose.blogspot.com

Descrizione libro Rizzoli International Publications, United States, 2013. Hardback. Condizione libro: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. In the wake of architectural giants from Frank Lloyd Wright to Frank Gehry, contemporary Southern California architects began exploring experimental new forms and creating a distinctive--and heretofore unexamined--urban style. Considered as a group for the first time, the story of their advancements, metamorphosis, and digressions inspires innovation and demonstrates a thoughtful relationship to new design perspectives and a changing urban environment. This major new book, illustrated with an impressive range of photographs and sketches, brings together perspectives from prominent historians, curators, and professors. New Sculpturalism in the Southern California Architecture compliments an exhibition of the same name to be held at The Geffen Contemporary at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles in May 2013, and is part of the Getty Research Institute series The Los Angeles Architecture, 1940-1990. Four original essays will examine Southern California experimental architecture from 1987 though today. Christopher Mount will emphasize the distinctive way these new works focus on form and take shape as their primary consideration in their unique New Sculpturalism. Nicholas Olsberg will trace a history of Southern California architecture before Gehry. Margaret Crawford will look at Los Angeles s particular brand of urbanism in relation to contemporary architecture while TBD will consider Sci-Arc (The Southern California Institute of Architecture) s method of teaching and how it has shaped Los Angeles today. A section devoted to client interviews will allow insight into process of creation, and the respected art world figure Jeffrey Dietch will contribute a Foreword. Together with a stunning collection of images, this book promises to present a groundbreaking examination of new developments in an important school of contemporary American architecture.
