Présentation de l'éditeur

The mechanics of lightness. The wide-ranging career of the Italian virtuoso. "The array of buildings by Renzo Piano is staggering in scope and comprehensive in the diversity of scale, material, and form. He is truly an architect whose sensibilities represent the widest range of this and earlier centuries." Such was the description of Renzo Piano given by the Pritzker Prize jury citation as they bestowed the prestigious award on him in 1998. Whereas some architects have a signature style, what sets Piano apart is that he seeks simply to apply a coherent set of ideas to new projects in extraordinarily different ways. "One of the great beauties of architecture is that each time, it is like life starting all over again," Piano says. "Like a movie director doing a love story, a Western, or a murder mystery, a new world confronts an architect with each project." This explains why it takes more than a superficial glance to recognize Piano's fingerprints on such varied projects as the Pompidou Center in Paris, the Kansai airport in Osaka, Japan, the Tjibaou Cultural Center in Noumea, New Caledonia, The New York Times Building in New York, the Zentrum Paul Klee in Bern, Switzerland, and the Morgan Library in New York. Every book in TASCHEN's "Basic Architecture Series" features: approximately 120 images, including photographs, sketches, drawings, and floor plans; introductory essays exploring the architect's life and work, touching on family and background as well as collaborations with other architects; the most important works presented in chronological order, with descriptions of client and/or architect wishes as well as construction problems and resolutions; and, an appendix including a list of complete or selected works, biography, bibliography and a map indicating the locations of the architect's most famous buildings.

Beautiful Photos, Greatest Hits, Quick Overview 14 juillet 2014
Par Anne Mills - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
This agreeably compact Taschen review of the work of Renzo Piano is mostly about the photos, which are beautiful and evocative of the buildings they present. Otherwise, the book provides a quick introduction to Piano's career and works. For serious study one would need more, but this is great to take along if you are travelling to the places where these buildings are located.

Pretty good! 26 juillet 2013

This is a pretty good book about Renzo Piano but it is more of a basic overview of his more well known work. There are more extensive books about him and his work out there but this is a good introduction to his work.

Solid 22 février 2013
Par Densify - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Good info and plenty of projects covered. Could have stood to be a little longer and go a little more in depth.
Beautiful 10 juin 2013

Gorgeously photographed, terrific little coffee-table book.

Small in size,and thinner than I expected, but full of amazing photographs that not only give me a greater appreciation for Renzo Piano's body of work but also puts my imagination in over-drive.

Almost every page has a small blurb describing the building or some part of the process but it's hardly meant to be an exhaustive in-depth look at his work.

Think of this as a pretty "cliffs notes" version.

Well written, excellent photography with easy to read documentation on the architect Renzo Piano. A welcome addition to anyone's collection of great 20th century architects. Taschen reigns supreme, recommend!
