Beschreibung

Milano, 2009; hardcover, pp. 224, 237 ill., cm 24x28. A lovingly book devoted to the too-brief career of a Swiss architect who stood outside the conventions of the post-war. Jean Tschumi, Architecture at Full Scale is the first book on a Swiss architect who, after his training at the Ecole des Beaux Arts in Paris, entered the polemical field of modernity and its technological expression. Interrupted by his tragic death in 1962 at the age of 57, Tschumi's work is rich in theoretical questions. What is the meaning of the design at full scale, not only for carpets, tables or armchairs? Why does the architect study his compositions at the minimal scale of a "postage stamp"? Is furniture the starting point of architecture? Why should the project be studied through the systematical use of variants? Does the future of the city lie in the planning of deep underground systems? Key Sales Information - This book makes the reader discover a great polymath whose breadth of talent and interests spanned many areas and skills. It includes feather-light pencilings by an artist who designed furniture and the interiors of the famous ocean liner, the Normandie, at the same time as he developed grand plans of urbanism for Lausanne. Author Jacques Gubler taught as a visiting professor at New Jersey Institute of Technology in Newark, New Jersey and the University of Pennsylvania. Buchnummer des Verkäufers 1872840
