Description:

Neuware - Willkommen in der ModerneDas Beste aus den ersten fünf Jahren des legendären ArchitekturmagazinsWährend andere noch am Dienstboteneingang der Moderne warteten, stieß John Entenza vorne die Haustür weit auf. Der charismatische Herausgeber von Arts & Architecture und Initiator des Case Study House Program war maßgeblich daran beteiligt, die amerikanische Architektur und das moderne amerikanische Design weltweit bekannt zu machen. Doch A&A berichtete in den Jahrzehnten nach dem Zweiten Weltkrieg nicht nur geistreich, frisch und spannend über Architektur, sondern auch über Kunst, Musik und Politik. Dank John Entenza, der das Magazin über zwei Jahrzehnte leitete, wurde aus diesem ehrgeizigen Projekt ein Magazin, das völlig neue Maßstäbe setzte. A&A präsentierte die größten Architekten seiner Zeit, darunter Richard Neutra, Rudolph Schindler, Eero Saarinen, Craig Ellwood, John Lautner, Charles & Ray Eames und Pierre Koenig. Hier wurden zwei der heute international erfolgreichsten Architekten, Frank Gehry und Richard Meier, zum ersten Mal vorgestellt. Mitwirkende am Magazin waren u. a. die Fotografen Julius Shulman und Ezra Stoller, die Autoren Esther McCoy und Peter Yates und die Cover-Designer Herbert Matter und Alvin Lustig.Das vollständige Faksimile von Arts & Architecture, das er von 1963 bis 1967 auch leitete. Er war Berater für Architekten wie The Architects Collaborative, William Pereira, Charles and Ray Eames sowie Daniel Mann Johnson & Architecture erschien bei TASCHEN 2008 als limitierte Collector s Edition. Diese neue Zusammenstellung versammelt sämtliche Cover und die Highlights der ersten fünf Jahrgänge des legendären Magazins und ist ein beeindruckendes Zeitdokument der modernen amerikanischen Architektur. 576 pp. Englisch, Französisch, Deutsch.

Synopsis: Welcome to Modernism: The very best of the first five years of the groundbreaking architecture magazine From the end of World War II until the mid-1960s, exciting things were happening in American architecture: emerging talents were focusing on innovative projects that integrated low-cost materials and modern design. This trend was most notably embodied in the famous Case Study House Program, which was championed by the era s leading American journal, Arts & Architecture. Focusing not only on architecture but also design, art, music, politics, and social issues, A&A was an ambitious and groundbreaking publication, largely thanks to the inspiration of John Entenza, who ran the magazine for over two decades until David Travers became publisher in 1962. The era s greatest architects were featured in A&A, including Neutra, Schindler, Saarinen, Ellwood, Lautner, Eames, and Koenig; and two of today s most wildly successful architects, Frank Gehry and Richard Meier, had their debuts in its pages. A&A was instrumental in putting American architecture and in particular California Modernism on the map. Other key contributors to the magazine include photographers Julius Shulman and Ezra Stoller, writers Esther McCoy and Peter Yates, and cover designers Herbert Matter and Alvin Lustig, among many luminaries of Modernism. The complete facsimile of Arts & Architecture was published by TASCHEN in 2008 as a limited Collector s Edition. This selection directed and produced by Benedikt Taschen brings together all the covers and the highlights from the first five years of the legendary magazine and is a comprehensive record of mid-century American architecture."

Product Description: The best years of our lives: How Arts and Architecture paved the way in post-war construction and culture From the end of World War II until the mid-1960s, exciting things were happening in American architecture. Emerging talents were focusing on innovative projects that integrated at once modern design and low-cost materials. The trend was most notably embodied in the famous Case Study House Program, a blueprint for modern habitation championed by the era's leading American journal, Arts & Architecture. The complete facsimile of the ambitious and groundbreaking Arts & Architecture was published by TASCHEN in 2008 as a limited edition. This new curation--directed and produced by Benedikt Taschen--brings together all the covers and the highlights from the first five years of the legendary magazine, with a special focus on the Case Study House Program and its luminary pioneers including Neutra, Schindler, Saarinen, Ellwood, Lautner, Eames, and Koenig. A celebration of the first brave years of a politically, socially and culturally engaged publication, this special selection is also a testimony to one of the most unique and influential events in the history of American architecture.
