Rick Joy: Desert Works: The Desert Works (New Voices in Architecture) [Englisch] [Taschenbuch]

Rick Joy , Steven Holl , Juhani Pallasmaa


Erhältlich bei diesen Anbietern.



Kurzbeschreibung

1. Juni 2002 New Voices in Architecture
Rick Joy builds with remarkable sensitivity, precision, and grace. The allure of his architecture is often quietly and seductively hidden in the sensual qualities of one's experiences: the sounds, smells, tactile qualities, and moods of his work. Granite crunching underfoot, the gentle trickle of water, and the lacy shadow of a mesquite tree all stir the viewers' sensations. 'The simplest things can evoke the deepest feelings,' Joy says. 'The silence in great music is often more profound than the sounds.' The nine buildings shown in thins, the first monograph on Joy's work, express his interest in making places that are transcendent moments of space, light, and matter. In each of the projects the physical landscape, its specific environment, and its rich history are revealed and celebrated. While many of the projects here use sustainable materials like rammed earth, Joy's primary interest is in the quality of the spaces he makes. He shows us how efficient and environmentally sensitive architecture can emerge as a by-product from a quest for the timeless qualities that are always associated with great architecture. Presented in the form of lush photography, insightful narratives, and revealing descriptions of his highly collaborative process, this book will bring one to a closer understanding of one of the most interesting architects practicing today.

Synopsis

The nine buildings shown in this, a monograph on the architecture of Rick Joy, express his interest in making places that are transcendent moments of space, light and matter. In each of the projects the physical landscape, its specific environment, and its rich history are revealed and celebrated. While many of the projects here use sustainable materials like rammed earth, Joy's primary interest is in the quality of the spaces he makes. He shows us how efficient and environmentally-sensitive architecture can emerge as a by-product from a quest for the timeless qualities that are always associated with great architecture. This volume contains photographs, narratives and descriptions of Joy's work.

When I first walked the site, it was essentially a ruin, in fragile condition and in a fragile place. Lesen Sie die erste Seite

5.0 von 5 Sternen Rick Joy 23. Oktober 2002
Von Michael Webb - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
A musician from Maine, who headed west and apprenticed to Will Bruder, the godfather of new Arizona architecture, Joy has built little in his ten years of independent practice, and only around his home base of Tucson. And yet, as this delectable monograph shows, he is a master designer. His houses-of raw steel or rammed earth-respond to the brutal beauty and intense light of the Sonoran desert, and, like Glenn Murcutt, he uses the simplest materials and forms to satisfy all the senses. In Pallasmaa's eloquent tribute and the superb color photos, you can feel the heat of the desert wind, run your hand over a rugged wall, and watch the earth change color as the sun sinks beneath the mountains.

4.0 von 5 Sternen From Spain, a fan of Rick Joy 20. März 2006
Von Diego Gamazo Roux - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
The book is very complete. Although nothing substitutes the visit of the buildings themselves, it is great to have such information about the very interesting work of Rick Joy: great pictures completed by texts and drawings.

For those who do not know his work but are interested in good architecture, where space, light, materiality ang gravity are so beautifully present, I advise you to buy the book and to travel to Arizona (I wish it was not that far away from Madrid!).

I hope the most recent work of Rick Joy will be published in the future so I can keep on enjoying from his architecture.

Un saludo: Diego G. de R., arquitecto.

A great book, beautifuly assembled, that provides an inspiring overview of the work. Numerous photos of the built work come along clear and elegant graphics. Simplicity and beauty of Rick Joy's work seem to come through the little book. Thank you.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Desert Works 24. Januar 2008
Von Nee - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
This is a most beautiful coffee table book with almost every page a work of art.
Personally I have a great interest in the subject matter but found the introduction interesting and the architects comments pleasantly short winded.
