Jean Tschumi : Architecture at Full Scale

£17.99

Product description

Book is as new still in shrink wrap. (The shrink wrap is partly ripped at the bottom and part way up the back seam, but the book has clearly never been removed from the wrapper.)

A lovingly book devoted to the too-brief career of a Swiss architect who stood outside the conventions of the post-war. Jean Tschumi, Architecture at Full Scale is the first book on a Swiss architect who, after his training at the Ecole des Beaux Arts in Paris, entered the polemical field of modernity and its technological expression. Interrupted by his tragic death in 1962 at the age of 57, Tschumis work is rich in theoretical questions. What is the meaning of the design at full scale, not only for carpets, tables or armchairs? Why does the architect study his compositions at the minimal scale of a postage stamp? Is furniture the starting point of architecture? Why should the project be studied through the systematical use of variants? Does the future of the city lie in the planning of deep underground systems?

Oxfam Books & Music Beeston

The Beeston books and music shop is situated near to Nottingham University, close to the city of Nottingham. There is a train station nearby. We offer a wider selection of books than most shops, from modern fiction and leisure interest to more specialist subjects, academic books, and rare or collectable items. There is a wide variety of music, including sheet music and a good selection of high quality classical, rock and pop vinyl. The volunteer team is a diverse mix from the local community, and University. We are currently recruiting for a quality control volunteer. We always welcome good quality, saleable donations which can be delivered to our rear entrance.
