This generously illustrated examination of architectural photography from the 1930s to the present shows how the medium has helped shape familiar views of iconic buildings. Photography has both manipulated and bolstered our appreciation of modern architecture. With beautiful photographs of private and public buildings by Julius Shulman, Candida H�fer, Andreas Gursky, Thomas Struth, and others, this book examines the central and active role that photography plays in defining and perpetuating the iconic nature of buildings and places. This volume shows how different photographers represent the same building, offers commentaries on the "American dream," and explores changes in commercial architectural photography. Placing decades-old images alongside modern ones, Image Building depicts the idea of the comfortable middle-class home and the construction of suburbia as an ironic ideal. It presents the ways that public spaces such as libraries, museums, theaters, and office buildings are experienced differently as photographers highlight the social, cultural, psychological, and aesthetic conditions to reveal the layered meanings of place and identity. Looking at how photography shapes and frames our understanding of architecture, this volume offers thought-provoking points of view through an exploration of social and cultural issues.

An important resource for scholars of contemporary art and architecture, this volume considers contemporary art that takes architecture as its subject. Concentrated on works made since 1990, Contemporary Art About Architecture: A Strange Utility is the first to take up this topic in a sustained and explicit manner and the first to advance the idea that contemporary art functions as a form of architectural history, theory, and analysis. Over the course of fourteen essays by both emerging and established scholars, this volume examines a diverse group of artists in conjunction with the vernacular, canonical, and fantastical structures engaged by their work. I? Manglano-Ovalle, Matthew Barney, Monika Sosnowska, Pipo Nguyen-duy, and Paul Pfeiffer are among those considered, as are the compelling questions of architecture's relationship to photography, the evolving legacy of Mies van der Rohe, the notion of an architectural unconscious, and the provocative concepts of the unbuilt and the unbuildable. Through a rigorous investigation of these issues, Contemporary Art About Architecture calls attention to the fact that art is now a vital form of architectural discourse. Indeed, this phenomenon is both pervasive and, in its individual incarnations, compelling - a reason to think again about the entangled histories of architecture and art.

Camera Constructs reflects critically on the varied interactions of the different practices by which photographers, artists, architects, theorists and historians engage with the relationship of the camera to architecture, the city and the evolution of Modernism. Including twenty-three essays by a wide range of historians and theorists this book provides a rich and highly original analysis of the relationship of photography to built form from the early modern period to the present day.
How are building types such as skyscrapers, mosques or living history museums imported, adapted and contested in different societies? Our urban landscapes are reshaped by the global circulation of models drawn from elsewhere. This original collection examines how architectural ideas, social models and building forms circulate round the world and become adapted to local conditions.
Welchen Status hat die Architekturfotografie heute? Einerseits sorgen die Bilder für die massenhafte mediale Verbreitung von Bauwerken. Andererseits schaffen die Fotografinnen und Fotografen durch ihre Haltung, ihre Interessen und ihren Stil sehr individuelle Bilder dieser gebauten Wirklichkeit. Sie erzählen eigene Geschichten der Gebäude, entscheiden, ob sie diese belebt oder unbelebt in Szene setzen, inszeniert oder naturalistisch, mit oder ohne Kontext, als Neubau oder im Gebrauch. Welche Auswirkung hat dieser fotografische Blick auf die Vermittlung der Gebäude und ihrer Architekten? Viele Architekten verbindet eine langjährige Zusammenarbeit mit einzelnen Fotografen. Wie stark prägen mögliche Bilder schon den Entwurf? Welche Bilder schaffen Aufmerksamkeit, welche neue Blickwinkel? Gerade in Zeiten der Bilderflut, in der sich Fotos und Renderings scheinbar kaum mehr unterscheiden lassen, holt die Publikation den Beitrag der Architekturfotografie vor den Vorhang und ermöglicht gleichzeitig einen Blick hinter die Kulissen. In acht bildreichen Kapiteln werden die Beziehungen zwischen Architektur und Fotografie einem Sichtwechsel unterzogen. Die unterschiedlichen Positionen treten dabei in einen spannungsvollen Dialog. Erkenntnisgewinn und Schauvergnügen gehen Hand in Hand. Mit Essays von: Angelika Fitz, Elke Krasny, Gabriele Lenz und Philipp Ursprung Mit Fotografien von: Markus Bstieler, Peter Eder, Gisela Erlacher, Pez Hejduk, Eduard Hueber, Hertha Hurnaus, Markus Kaiser, Angelo Kaunat, Bruno Klomfar, Alexander Eugen Koller, Zita Oberwalder, Pia Odorizzi, Stefan Olah, Paul Ott, Lukas Schaller, Manfred Seidl, Margherita Spiluttini, Rupert Steiner, Dietmar Tollerian, Günter Wett

With the recent international proliferation of architectural projects, expansions, and renovations––particularly in the art and museum worlds––critics have accused architecture of entering too fully into the “society of the spectacle,” yielding to consumerist display, and trading its historical aims, ambitions, and obligations for celebrity and ostentation. This important and timely volume examines the current state of contemporary architecture worldwide and the ways in which it is caught between the art of display and the accommodation of use. Eleven distinguished scholars from the fields of architecture, art history, and architectural criticism explore the problems and possibilities of contemporary architecture in the light of the history of its modern reception, new approaches to design technologies, and philosophical issues about the “meaning” of architecture. They also consider whether the new buildings, projects, and ideas that have generated such excitement and public interest are a creative response to society’s fundamental social, cultural, and economic needs.
Fifteen leading architects are hailed as 'Masters of Light' in this new take on residential architecture. Writer and architectural photographer Peter Hyatt shows how light, in the hands of these masters, is used to shape, create, transform, heal and regenerate. This book illustrates how architects' often experimental, and highly individual, responses to the brief, site and environment of housing projects can be transcended by the manipulation of light. Just as light can increase worker productivity and satisfaction in an office, it can be shaped to fit a family's lifestyle and enhance its sense of well-being. Each of the features architects demonstrates an impeccable ability to capture the evanescent world of light and shade, and to use it not just as an architectural building block, but as navigation, interior design and artwork. Their skills in shaping light are explored in the more than 60 residential projects examined in this book.

One hundred years ago, architects found in the medium of photography—so good at representing a building’s lines and planes—a necessary way to promote their practices. It soon became apparent, however, that photography did more than reproduce what it depicted. It altered both subject and reception, as architecture in the twentieth century was enlisted as a form of mass communication. Claire Zimmerman reveals how photography profoundly influenced architectural design in the past century, playing an instrumental role in the evolution of modern architecture. Her “picture anthropology” demonstrates how buildings changed irrevocably and substantially through their interaction with photography, beginning with the emergence of mass-printed photographically illustrated texts in Germany before World War II and concluding with the postwar age of commercial advertising. In taking up “photographic architecture,” Zimmerman considers two interconnected topics: first, architectural photography and its circulation; and second, the impact of photography on architectural design. She describes how architectural photographic protocols developed in Germany in the early twentieth century, expanded significantly in the wartime and postwar diaspora, and accelerated dramatically with the advent of postmodernism. In modern architecture, she argues, how buildings looked and how photographs made them look overlapped in consequential ways. In architecture and photography, the modernist concepts that were visible to the largest number over the widest terrain with the greatest clarity carried the day. This richly illustrated work shows, for the first time, how new ideas and new buildings arose from the interplay of photography and architecture—transforming how we see the world and how we act on it.
