Books / By Location / Europe

Michael Graves: Images of A Grand Tour
Author: Brian M. Ambroziak
Publisher: Princeton Architectural Press
Year: 2005
Amazon Price: $29.95
ArchitectureWeek— A compilation of pencil sketches, ink washes, and photographs created in 1960 by young Michael Graves when he received the prestigious Prix de Rome and traveled through Italy, Greece, Turkey, Spain, England, Germany, and France, studying and recording masterworks, both ancient and modern. The artwork shows his deep connection to classical buildings and sheds light on his early devotion to modernism.

O'Donnell + Tuomey: Selected Works
Author: Sheila O'Donnell and John Tuomey
Publisher: Princeton Architectural Press
Year: 2006
Amazon Price: $27.26
ArchitectureWeek— Dublin, Ireland-based architects O'Donnell + Tuomey have brought a wealth of exciting buildings to the Emerald Isle for the past 17 years. Their striking modernist works show their appreciation for Ireland's rich cultural, historic, and civic identity without falling into stereotypes of pitched roofs, gables, slate, and brick. This monograph on the firm presents 15 of their institutional and residential projects through color photography, plans, and drawings.

Italy Now? Country Positions in Architecture
Author: Alberto Alessi, editor
Publisher: Cornell AAP Publications
Year: 2007
Amazon Price: $22.76
ArchitectureWeek— What does it mean to practice architecture today? Does Italian architecture exist? What characterizes it? What values and objectives do you refer to when designing your architecture, and why? These are the questions recently put to 20 leading architecture firms working in Italy today. Their answers are presented with photography of their design work.
