Présentation de l'éditeur

There are few images of 20th century architecture more iconic than the nighttime view of Case Study House No. 22 set on its eagle's-nest site high above the lights of Los Angeles. With his two innovative houses for the famous project of the "Arts and Architecture" magazine, American architect Pierre Kcenig (1925-2004) became one of the leading figures of the Modern movement in America. While still a student of architecture, he designed and built his first exposed steel house in 1950, proving that the use of prefabricated materials could allow for spatial freedom in affordable houses. Koenig's houses, like the Johnson House (1962) or the Oberman House (1962), are a direct response to Southern California's extremely warm and dry climate. His work is deeply marked by his commitment to environmentally and socially responsible design. His houses have thus become characteristic of the spirit of a whole generation: they perfectly capture the excitement and optimism of the American postwar society. 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.

Quelques réalisations de Koenig. De belles images qui permettent de découvrir des batiments moins connus. Quelques plans. L'analyse reste courte mais le rapport qualité/prix est très correct

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Koenig 18 janvier 2008
Par Jamie Cannon - Publié sur Amazon.com

Pierre Koenig was one of the finest architects of the mid-20th Century. His 1960 Stahl House (well illustrated here) has been seen by millions of people in movies, television and especially, television ads. It's the glass enclosed living room/pavilion with a swimming pool in the foreground and all of Los Angeles as a background. This small Taschen book, part of a rather large series, talks about his career and buildings and is well worth the purchase price of $9.99. If your're a fan of the Arts and Architecture Case Study houses, as I am, you will love this little book.

Par Santa Barbara Jim - Publié sur Amazon.com
Good, short and reasonably priced overview of a Southern California architect who would have been largely unknown if not for Julius Shulman's great nightime picture.

I wish that it was bigger, but it is still nice to have. Check the dimensions before buying so you know what you are getting. I have enjoyed having it, but bigger is better with this type of book.

Gives you a distinct feel not only for Koenig's signature architecture, but for the man as well. Highly recommended book.
