9780823030774: Minimalism Maximalism

The history of architecture, like that of all art forms, has fluctuated over the years between two very marked trends: austerity and opulence of form and concept. Styles have alternated from simplicity to exuberance, eventually reaching an eclectic period in which rationalist works coexist with postmodern structures, minimalist interiors, and crowded atmospheres. Minimalism/Maximalism presents a resplendent collection of buildings that illustrate these two very dissimilar styles. The creators of these projects—among some of today's most prestigious architects—demonstrate that after a long period of austere work it's time for a new, cutting-edge design—one that is more complex, with an enriching mixture of materials, forms, and functions. Filled with 370 lavish color images and 50 architectural plans, this guide compares and contrasts an array of minimalist and maximalist examples. Readers will find impressive homes, offices, and shops created by Frank O. Gehry, Zaha Hadid, Rem Koolhass, Ettore Sottsass, and 20 other designers. Plus, clear, descriptive text details how minimalism/maximalism influenced other disciplines such as graphic design. Whether one is an architect, interior designer, contractor, or homeowner, Minimalism/Maximalism is a never-ending source of style and inspiration.
