The Architecture of Edwin Lundie
The Architecture of Edwin Lundie
Paperback      ISBN: 0873513142

"This book fills one of the many gaps in our knowledge of twentieth-century architects who were not Modernists. Lundie's more or less Traditional work is enhanced by its ferocious exploitation of rough materials, and, in the cabins especially, by what seems to be primordial Scandinavian references quite at home in the north woods of Minnesota" Vincent Scully, Sterling Professor Emeritus of the History of Art, Yale University

"Edwin Lundie was the great romantic among Minnesota architects, and this lovely book at last gives his work the recognition it so richly deserves." Larry Millett, author of Lost Twin Cities

"This book reveals Edwin Lundie to be an architect imbued with a passion for his art that few attain, let alone sustain for a lifetime. His buildings, as did those of the architect Sir Edwin Lutyens, attained an instant patina. This was the product of a mind that created character and composition by means of an extraordinary attention to the craft and construction of architecture. To realize that I received my architectural education at the University of Minnesota in the late 1950s without an awareness of Mr. Lundie's presence, to say nothing of his mastery of architectural form, leaves me incredulous." William Peterson, Kohn Pederson Fox Associates PC, Architects & Planning Consultants, New York City

Throughout a fifty-year career in St. Paul, architect Edwin H. Lundie (1886-1972) designed more than three hundred projects, predominantly residences, many utilizing either Northern European or Earl American themes. His architectural designs, along with the Prairie School inventions of Purcell and Elmslie and the modernist themes of Ralph Rapson, are collectively considered the best work of Minnesota architects in the twentieth century. What set Lundie apart from his colleagues was his devotion to detail and love of fine craftsmanship.

Long overlooked as architects moved away from picturesque themes in favor of modernism, Lundie's designs are now enjoying a resurgence of attention concurrent with revived interest in postmodernism, regionalism, and a sense of place. For the first time, the significance of this unique body of work is presented in The Architecture of Edwin Lundie for architects, art historians, designers, builders, craftspeople, students, and the general public.

Author Dale Mulfinger undertook this book after a decade of studying and recording Lundie's buildings and lecturing at local, regional, and national forums. Here he brings together a foreword by David Gebhard that sets Lundie in a national context; a biographical essay by Eileen Michels; his own piece assessing Lundie's design principles; outstanding color photographs by Peter Kerze; and beautiful rendering in pencil and ink by Lundie himself. In addition, the book offers thirty profiles of individual buildings with photos, floor plans, and drawings to highlight feature demonstrating Lundie's genius.

The Complete Works
Hardcover      ISBN: 1568983220

Mexican architect Luis Barragan (1902-88) was one of the twentieth centurys most creative designers and one of its best-known architects. Self-taught, he achieved international renown for his remarkable personal artistic vision. Using vegetation, water, primary geometric forms, and vivid colors, Barragan created a poetic and painterly yet elegantly simple architectural style that transformed the Mexican building tradition into an abstract architectural language.
This revised edition of our best-selling monograph the first comprehensive compilation of Barragans work (102 buildings and 12 additional projects) contains new photographs and an updated bibliography. Its intelligent analyses and superb illustrations demonstrate the complexity and scope of this genius, as both an architect and a landscape designer.
Barragan The Complete Works collects over 300 illustrations including Barragans drawings; photographs of his work; re-drawn plans, elevations, and scale models of important projects; texts by Alvaro Siza, Antonio Toca, and J. M.

Beyond the West: New Global Architecture
Beyond the West
New Global Architecture
Hardcover      ISBN: 3899558790

Beyond The West inspires a fresh understanding of global contemporary architecture beyond the Western Countries. Architects throughout the world work against a backdrop of rapidly growing cities, changing societies and climate, and emerging economies. But while Western architecture has largely dominated the discourse, architecture firms from non-Western countries have been establishing local and global -recognition for themselves, often finding strikingly different solutions to local requirements, including sustainability, transportation and migration, construction materials, and traditions. Beyond The West journeys across Asia, Africa, and the Americas to under-stand how local architects respond to a changing world, and focuses its wide lens on inspiring and truly global architecture.
