Description:

Near-Fine condition 1st Edition/1st Printing hardcover in Near-Fine condition dust jacket. "This book is the first to focus on Ossipoff¿s career, presenting significant new material on the architect and situating him within the tropical modernist movement and the cultural context of the Pacific region. The authors discuss how Ossipoff synthesized Eastern and Western influences, including Japanese building techniques and modern architectural principles. In particular, they demonstrate that he drew inspiration from the interplay of indoor and outdoor space as advocated by such architects as Frank Lloyd Wright, applying these to the concerns and vernacular traditions of the tropics. The result was a vibrant and glamorous architectural style, captured vividly in archival images and new photography." -- Yale University Press. This 1st printing copy is in beautiful condition. The book is spotless inside and out. No creases, marks or damage to the pages. It's only flaws are two bumped corners (the lower left of the back cover and the upper right of the back cover) and just a hint of rub wear to the bottom edge of the spine. The dust jacket is not clipped. The front panel and spine are spotless but the back panel shows very slight soiling near the spine. No chips or tears. A very nice copy of this very scarce and out of print architectural gem. We will carefully pack it in bubble-wrap and ship it in a sturdy box to make sure it arrives in great condition.

Synopsis:

At the forefront of the postwar phenomenon known as tropical modernism, Vladimir Ossipoff (1907–1998) won recognition as the “master of Hawaiian architecture.? Although he practiced at a time of rapid growth and social change in Hawaii, Ossipoff criticized large-scale development and advocated environmentally sensitive designs, developing a distinctive form of architecture appropriate to the lush topography, light, and microclimates of the Hawaiian islands.

 

This book is the first to focus on Ossipoff?s career, presenting significant new material on the architect and situating him within the tropical modernist movement and the cultural context of the Pacific region. The authors discuss how Ossipoff synthesized Eastern and Western influences, including Japanese building techniques and modern architectural principles. In particular, they demonstrate that he drew inspiration from the interplay of indoor and outdoor space as advocated by such architects as Frank Lloyd Wright, applying these to the concerns and vernacular traditions of the tropics. The result was a vibrant and glamorous architectural style, captured vividly in archival images and new photography.

 

As the corporate projects and private residences that Ossipoff created for such clients as IBM, Punahou School, Linus Pauling, Jr., and Clare Boothe Luce surpass their fiftieth anniversaries, critical assessment of these structures, offered here by distinguished scholars in the field, will illuminate Ossipoff?s contribution to the universal challenge of making architecture that is delightfully particular to its place and durable over time.

Book Description:

This stunning book is the first to focus on the career of Vladimir Ossipoff??one of the 20th century?s most important tropical modernists.
