Kurzbeschreibung

15. Oktober 1999 Universe Architecture Series
It has been said that Peter Eisenman considers architecture a form of shock therapy; whatever his intent, Peter Eisenman has indeed created one of the most controversial bodies of work of any contemporary American architect. Eisenman's architecture, along with the complex, genre-straddling theories upon which it is built, is active and polemical, and his buildings--whether executed or not--are ingenious essays on the way humans and inert materials occupy and control space. Eisenman combines a theoretical background and a remarkable academic pedigree with a bold, uncompromising design sensibility that places him along the country's most revered architects. Diagram Diaries is an unprecedented illustrated chronicle that showcases Eisenman's work to date from his earliest house designs to the heralded Wexner Center in Columbus, Ohio, through current commissions such as the Memorial for the Victims of the Holocaust in Vienna. This volume is more than a straightforward survey of the architect's work, however; it is by its very nature an engaging exploration of the process of design. Essays and detailed descriptions are built along a central axis tracing Eisenman's career. Project profiles are organized according to their generating motif: the inside of architecture, or projects generated by the internal forces of shapes and forms; and the outside of architecture, projects governed by external forces such as site and scientific process. Through Eisenman's own essays and through extensive illustration, readers come to understand Eisenman's diagram-based approach to design whereby sites and structures can be manipulated in diagram form. Diagram Diaries offers readers a succinct, totally up-to-date exposition of Peter Eisenman's design philosophy and a meticulously illustrated presentation of this architect's groundbreaking contributions to twentieth-century American design.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Eisenman's office sketchbook? 2. August 2000
Format:Taschenbuch
This volume consist 80% of computer generated drawings. Most of the 'drawings' or 'diagrams' are 3-d drawings with lines everywhere (even back lines that should be hidden) which makes them incomprehensible. They look just um,... messy & black! Maybe just for the look of "Complexity"? Well, can't learn much from them! Maybe architects like to collect these for collection sake. A lot of the diagrams are not accompanied by any explainations, which make them even more incomprehensible. This book includes a few essays by Eisenman at the front.

Excellent and comprehensive collection of Eisenman diagrams from his early Houses to the Virtual House. Somol gives a concise summary of his influences throughout his career, probably worth the price alone. All in all an excellent example of Eisenmans's work. Excellent value, as well.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Small book, big words. 24. Januar 2001
Von Chris - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
This book is a great resource for those who want to get at what Mr. Eisenman is all about. It is a surprisingly straightforward account of what he has been up to for the past thirty years or more(Straightforward for Eisenman, at any rate). The book does require careful scrutiny, just looking at the pictures will get you nowhere.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Diagram Diaries by Peter Eisenman 10. Januar 2002
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
This is a must have for any architecture book collection. This book not only contains a linear timeline of Peter's work but amazing illustrations as well. This is a great book for an architecture student or anyone interested in theory and discourse. I was happy to (uncover and) discover Peter's personal, yet not so personal, relationship with his architecture. His distance and intimacy with his work leads to a very poetic and original linguistic creation. He is truely one of the most amazing architects; coming from someone as critical as myself, this is a great compliment to a man and his work. Read this book and see how Eisenman's work has progressed, developed, evolved, eroded, and digressed in the last 30 years. When you are done reading this book read this book again.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Complete Rubbish 16. August 2003
Von Calicrates - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
It doesn't seem to matter that Eisenman's buildings are hated by the public, fail as mature works of urbanism and are founded on an adolescent-grade ('Philosophy 101 for Juniors') theoretical basis. Eisenman's sucess is largely within the cliquey New York-European quasi-intellectual circle of professionals whose status is largely self-serving within their own limited circle. If you want to learn about architecture and urbanism, try Camillo Sitte, James Howard Kunstler, Jane Jacobs, Ada Louise Huxtable, William H. White, or any of the urban theorists who'se work is based on observation of actual human behavior, not speculations dreamed up to match a catchy diagram.
Eisenman is at best playing with himself (and we all know what a sign of maturity that is!). If you are young and impressionable, this sort of activity might grab your attention. But if you are seeking intelligent discourse, look elsewhere ... almost anywhere elswhere will do. Eisenman's books are not worth the toilet paper they are written on.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Thin & Superficial 26. April 2004
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
The title says it best. This is a series of diagrams which attempt to throw light on Eisenman's mostly superficial design ideas. Like much of his work, Eisenman fails to grasp intelligent spatial concepts, preferring instead the easy road of 2-dimensional graphic diagrams so lacking in any really meaningful or intuitive qualities that one onders whether these illustrations were intended for the design of a computer chipset or as spaces for human occupancy. Anyone who has seen (suffered?) the Wexner Center or the Columbus Convention Center will know that Eisenman is not capable of making good buildings. They have the thin, diagrammatic qualities of a full-size cardboard mock-up, not the substantive place-making associated with real architectural projects. Any casual walk around the city with your eyes open will be more instructive about the practice of architecture than reading a single page of this silly tome. Give this one a wide berth.
