Synopsis: As architect, designer and especially author, Swiss master Werner Blaser has always asked, ''What is good architecture?'' In this copiously illustrated, comprehensive book, Blaser - author of books on Mies Van Der Rohe, Aalto, Meier, Piano, Jahn and Ando, among many others - offers his answer. Drawing on photographs from his impressive archive, which he accompanies with short explanatory texts, Werner Blaser vividly demonstrates the basic foundations of architecture and perception. In a few fascinating sections, for example, he describes the relation between the Finnish landscape and the works of Aalto; shows how Calatravas uses natural principles in his architecture; reveals how Piano works with light. He also considers traditional Chinese and Indian architecture, and the relation between archetype and
image and the element of silence. A brilliant summing-up by one of architecture's
great thinkers.

Book Description Niggli Verlag Jan 2012, 2012. Buch. Book Condition: Neu. 246x233x20 mm. Neuware - 'Was macht gute Architektur aus ' Diese Frage wurde Werner Blaser immer wieder von Freunden, Lesern, Weggefährten und Studenten gestellt. Mit diesem umfassenden Werk begibt sich der Autor zahlreicher Publikationen auf die Suche nach der Beantwortung dieser grundlegenden Frage. In der Auseinandersetzung mit besonderen Bauwerken werden verschiedene Aspekte und Zusammenhänge deutlich, die für sich genommen oder in der Kombination eine Qualität erzeugen. Es sind die immer wieder grundlegenden Aspekteder Architektur und Wahrnehmung, die Werner Blaser anschaulich aufzeigt. In Form ausgewählter Fotografien aus seinem beeindruckenden Archiv und erläuternder Kurztexte stellt er jene Grundlagen vor. So setzt er die finnische Landschaft mit Arbeiten von Alvar Aalto in Bezug oder zeigt, wie Prinzipien aus der Natur in die Architektur Santiago Calatravas einfliessen oder wie Renzo Piano mit Licht arbeitet. Auch die Anlehnung an lokale Bautraditionen und die Verwendung regionaler Materialien im Bauen von Jørn Utzon, Frank Lloyd Wright oder bei traditionellen chinesischen und indischen Bauwerken wird deutlich gemacht. Den Aspekt der Übertragung althergebrachter Konstruktionsprinzipien veranschaulichen Fotografien der Werke von Mies van der Rohe, Norman Foster oder Helmut Jahn dies oft verbunden mit den eigenen Bauten und Projekten des Autors. Die letzten Kapitel des Buches widmen sich schliesslich dem Bezug von Urbild und Abbild und dem Aspekt der Stille im Bauen. 176 pp. Englisch, Deutsch. Bookseller Inventory # 9783721207972
