44 COHEN, JANIE (EDITOR); SAGAN, DANNY & DANN, KEVIN (ESSAYISTS). Architectural Improvisation: A History Of Vermont's Design / Build Movement 1964-1977.
University of Vermont Press / Robert Hull Fleming Museum: 2009. First Edition. s Softcover. Brand new book. 
Documents a small but seminal architectural movement that sought to create a radical, new architecture characterized by organic forms, improvisational processes, hands-on methods, and use of natural materials. Examines the work of a group of architects that converged in Vermont's Mad River Valley in the mid-1960s. Lead essayist Danny Sagan traces the development of the Design/Build movement from its roots in Bauhaus theory at Yale School of Architecture in the early 1960s to the architectural manifestations of its radical aesthetic, social, and technological experimentation. An essay by historian Kevin Dann explores Vermont's draw, throughout the 20th century, on individuals seeking creative freedoms in a rural setting. The publication includes archival photographs and drawings, new architectural photographs, and documentary materials that explicate the design-builders' theory, process, and resulting structures. The text and illustrations come together in a stunning celebration of the Design/Build movement. Janie Cohen is an art historian and director of the Robert Hull Fleming Museum at the University of Vermont.

47 CONCINA, ENNIO. A History Of Venetian Architecture.
Cambridge University Press, Cambridge: 1998. 0521573386 / 9780521573382 h Hardcover with dustjacket. Brand new book. 
The history of Venetian architecture is no less remarkable than the history of the city itself. Ennio Concina's comprehensive survey draws on extensive original research on the cultural history of Venice to offer fresh insights and an energetic approach to the architecture. Beginning with the traces of classical activity found in the territory that became ducal Venice, through its establishment as an urba magna in the Byzantine age, and the architectural glories of the Renaissance and Baroque city, Concina discusses the influence of Venice's extraordinary position in history and geography on the architectural styles to be found there. He overturns many long established theories on the development of the lagoon city, and discusses the work of many of history's most famous architects - Sansovino, Sanmicheli, Palladio, Longhena - this brings the story up to date with an examination of the twentieth-century's attempts to expand the economy, and preserve the city's heritage. The contents of the book is as follows: 1. Neptune's Walls: the myths of the origins; 2. Byzantine, ducal and communal Venice; 3. Venice and the Gothic; 4. Renovatio marciana: the early Renaissance; 5. The new magnificence: the cinquecento; 6. Baroque Venice: the age of Baldassar Longhena; 7. the eighteenth century: anti-Baroque polemics, the 'stil veneziano' and innovation; 8. Architecture and the contemporary city. Translated into English from the Italian by Judith Landry. "...excellent coverage... recommended for college-level library collections." The Midwest Book Review

Editiones Poligrafa, S. A., Barcelona: 1986. 8434303884 / 9788434303881 h Hardcover with dustjacket. Very good condition. 
This richly illustrated volume contains more colorplates than perhaps any other publication devoted to the astonishing architectural visions of Gaudi - which adds to our appreciation of his work: for unlike the majority of architects, Gaudi strongly believed that color formed an integral part of the architectural ensemble, bringing life to form and mass. The generous use of color in these pages adds extra dimension to our perception of Gaudi's fantastic constructions, and in all-over views and details the exuberant inventiveness of his fertile imagination are vividly brought to life. Translated into English from the Spanish by Kenneth Lyons.
