Werner, Frank R.
This work contains text in English and German. Julia Bolles-Wilson and Peter L Wilson have built a large number of striking, thoroughly detailed cultural and commercial buildings in recent years, all sharing the characteristic that they stubbornly resist superficial stylistic categorisation. Their buildings are articulated and positioned in an unmistakable way in their respective urban spaces, thanks to pointed breaks with rational space configurations, sculptural shapes for architectural silhouettes and the use of polychrome surfaces. 59pp.
Edition Axel Menges, 2003, Cloth, Book Condition: New, Jacket Condition: New. First Edition. . 4to - over 9" - 12" Tall.

Biegman, Niek
To date, Nicolaas (Niek) Biegman has published nine photo books, all concerned with people: in the streets of Amsterdam, New York, Egypt and Haiti, performing Sufi rituals in Egypt, Macedonia, Kosovo, Bosnia and Syria, oil wrestling in Macedonia and the painter Rein Dool. His work has been exhibited in Aleppo, Amsterdam, Cairo, Paris, Rotterdam, Skopje and Zagreb. This tenth book is the result of four years of walking and cycling around Amsterdam's streets and canals while mainly looking upward. Up there are the gables topped with exuberant wigs that are the trade mark of the city. The stone wigs contain the main living elements to be found in these photos: gods, dolphins, dogs, and lions. Additionally, the houses themselves show a human face to whoever wishes to see it. Biegman presents them as parts of the urban landscape, which attracts millions of visitors from all over the world, every year. Eventually, the visitors go home again. This book may help them to remember Amsterdam's peculiar architecture along with the canals and the streets where they discovered it. 133pp. N.B. Slight crease to spine edge of front cover.

Holzinger, Johannes Peter
This book features text in English and German. Linking art and architecture is one of the great Utopias of our century. Art has been released from its traditional bonds and sees itself faced with a world that has made systems independent to the extent that a link between art and building based on the idea of unity is no longer admissible. The collapse of our 'world into pieces' also typifies that situation of the arts looking for new orders. Now, artist-architect Johannes Peter Holzinger, in co-operation with artists Eberhard Fiebig, Ottmar Horl/Formalhaut, Leonardo Mosso, Norbert Muller-Everling, Ansgar Nierhoff and Andreas Sobeck, working on the government buildings on the Hardthohe in Bonn, has succeeded in creating 'an avant-garde landmark that shows in the interplay of the arts that the avant-garde can also work positively in a team', as Dieter Ronte, director of the Stadtisches Kunstmuseum Bonn, put it in a contribution to this book. Holzinger links heterogeneous artistic positions in attempting an order of the different. The art in the outer areas of the complex mediates between the surroundings and the buildings. The visual signing system leads further into the centres, which are the same shape, of the existing administrative buildings, and creates some thing that is unmistakable there. The special structures designed by Holzinger, an intermediate form of architecture and landscape developed from the relief, include the earth itself, and in the casino architecture and art combine to form an indissoluble unit. 71pp.N.B.Slight mark on front d/j.
