1 Kennon, Kevin; Gandelsonas, Mario; Butler, Ruth The Rodin Museum, Seoul
1568982356 / 9781568982359; This museum was intended to house two major works and is, therefore, not very big. But the beauty is in the design - one gets the feeling that there is light all around because the small building is made of varying amounts of translucent glass. This book shows not only photographs of the beautiful finished product, but of the steps taken and drawings of the proposed museum. It is tucked into a corner over which there is a tall building, but it is not affected by the building, nor the 8 lanes of expressway traffic zooming past (there's an amazing photo of this! ) . It is meant to be a place of quiet contemplation. A beautiful book, an interesting read, and a striking museum are all contained in this volume. This 11 1/2" wide book is bound in grey cloth, and the heavy dust jacket folds over at the top and bottom, as well as the edges. 95 pages, including several full-color photographs which are marvelous! 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall.

2 Miotto, Luciana Henri E. Ciriani
8886502885 / 9788886502887; One of the Pocket Architecture series. Henri Edouard Ciriani studied architecture at the University of Lima, where he became familiar with the theory and methods of the Modern Movement, which he has followed throughout his life. After an intensive professional training he moved to France, where he received his first important commission: The Noisy II quarter at Marne-la-Vallee (1980) . This became the prototype for a new architecture, capable of engendering a new civic condition. The Children's Centre at Torcy, the Peronne Memorial and the Museum at Arles were the masterpieces of his maturity, Ciriani reveals an architecture based on disciplined design and renewal within the terms of the Modern Movement and these buildings reveal his extraordinary work on space, natural light and color. Includes photographs and drawings, color and black & white. ; 96 pages

3 Moore, Rowan Vertigo: the Strange New World of the Contemporary City
1856691535 / 9781856691536; Includes a foreword by Jaques Herzog. Essays by Aaron Betsky, Paul Davies, Brian Hatton, Martin Pawley, Irenee Scalbert and others. This book "is an enquiry into the state of the millennial city, this 'new world' loosely composed around consumerism, finance, culture, politics and entertainment. Comprising ten highly individual statements from some of the world's most erudite - and often controversial - architecture writers, Vertigo critiques a disparate selection of buildings currently in the public eye and in various stages of completion, ranging from the reconstruction of Berlin to Yokohama International Port Terminal. Fully illustrated with 233 illustrations, 200 in color, these include photographs, plans and tour de force computer renderings. Vertigo is compelling reading for architecture students, practitioners, critics and anyone at all interested in the urban environment. " Includes an index. The jacket has very light edgewear.; 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall
