"Wassili Luckhardt (22 July 1889 in Berlin – 2 December 1972 in Berlin) was a German architect. He studied at the Technical University of Berlin (Technische Universität Berlin) and Dresden. Luckhardt and his brother Hans worked closely together for most of their lives. Both were members of the November Group (Novembergruppe) , the Arbeitsrat für Kunst, the Glass Chain and, from 1926, the progressive architecture group Der Ring. The brothers shared an office with the architect Alfons Anker (b. 1872, d. 1952). " "In the 1920s the brothers belonged to the 20th centuries rising architects. Originally Expressionist they then turned to modernism. Their buildings are typical examples with skeletons of steel or reinforced concrete. During National Socialism the Luckhardt brothers tried initially to reconcile their architecture with the new ruling powers and joined even the Nazi Party. It quickly became apparent however that the new regime required a different architectural language. They were professionally disqualified and could only build three single-family houses in this time, the exterior of which was made to blend in with the preferred style of the regime. " (both from Wikipedia). Good .

House Beautiful January 1963
New York: Hearst Corporation, 1963. Magazine. B&W Illustrations; This is an oversized magazine with illustrated covers and a glued spine. The magazine is in Very Good condition and was issued without a dust jacket. The top front corner of the book cover has a couple of small creases.

"Begun in 1937 and expanded over 25 years, this is the first and best example of Wright's innovative hexagonal design. Patterned after the honeycomb of a bee, the house incorporates six-sided figures with 120-degree angles in its plan, in its numerous tiled terraces, and even in built-in furnishings. In American National Bibliography Frederick Ivor-Campbell wrote " (the) Honeycomb House showed how Wright's system of Polygonal modules could provide the openness that he associated with freedom of movement while gracefully integrating the house with its sloping topography. The hexagonal modules of the floor plan gave the appearance of a honeycomb; hence the name of the house." There are no right angles on the floor plan." (from Wikipedia). Very Good .

FULLER, R. BUCKMINSTER
Nine Chains to the Moon

The book and its contents are in mostly clean, bright condition. There is some light bumping and rubbing to the edges of the book covers. The text pages are clean and bright. There is a previous owner's inked initials on the half title page. "This title of this book was chosen to encourage and stimulate the broadest attitude toward thought - if in imagination, all of the people of the world were to stand upon one another's shoulders, they would make nine complete chains between the earth and the moon. If it is not so far to the moon, then it is not so far to the limits, - whatever, whenever or wherever they may be." "Fuller taught at Black Mountain College in North Carolina during the summers of 1948 and 1949, serving as its Summer Institute director in 1949. There, with the support of a group of professors and students, he began reinventing a project that would make him famous: the geodesic dome. Although the geodesic dome had been created some 30 years earlier by Dr. Walther Bauersfeld, Fuller was awarded United States patents. He is credited for popularizing this type of structure. One of his early models was first constructed in 1945 at Bennington College in Vermont, where he frequently lectured. In 1949, he erected his first geodesic dome building that could sustain its own weight with no practical limits. It was 4.3 meters (14 feet) in diameter and constructed of aluminium aircraft tubing and a vinyl-plastic skin, in the form of an icosahedron. To prove his design, Fuller suspended from the structure's framework several students who had helped him build it. The U. S. Government recognized the importance of his work, and employed his firm Geodesics, Inc. In Raleigh, North Carolina to make small domes for the Marines. Within a few years there were thousands of these domes around the world.". Very Good+ .

GARVY, HELEN
I Built Myself a House a Step-By-Step Guide to Building a Simple Country Cabin Using Post-and-Beam Construction
San Francisco, CA: Shire Press, 1975. 1st Edition; 1st Printing. Paperback. Illustrated by Susan Freeman. B&W Illustrations; This is a trade paperback book. The book is in Very Good condition and was issued without a dust jacket. The book and its contents are in generally clean, bright condition. "Post and beam construction is a building method that relies on heavy timbers rather than dimensional lumber. With roots in early Asian architecture, the use of post and beam construction methods have long since spread across the globe. Several post and beam structures constructed during medieval times are still standing—a testament to their well crafted durability. In the aftermath of natural disasters like hurricanes and earthquakes, post and beam buildings are often the only structures that remain erect. In addition to the benefit of their sturdy craftsmanship, post and beam structures can be erected relatively fast due to their lack of load-bearing walls. With fewer constraints on structural requirements, post and beam construction lends itself to highly customizable floor plans—meaning windows, doors, and horse stalls can be added almost anywhere the owner sees fit."

"Possibly the first house erected within the site was that of a Sir William Blake, around 1624. [11] The next owner was Lord Goring, who from 1633 extended Blake's house and developed much of today's garden, then known as Goring Great Garden. [12][13] He did not, however, obtain the freehold interest in the mulberry garden. Unbeknown to Goring, in 1640 the document "failed to pass the Great Seal before King Charles I fled London, which it needed to do for legal execution". It was this critical omission that helped the British royal family regain the freehold under King George III. "; Signed by Author. Very Good+ in Very Good- dust jacket .

PEVSNER, NIKOLAUS
An Enquiry Into Industrial Art in England
Cambridge, England: Macmillan Company / The University of Cambridge, England, 1937. 1st Edition; 1st Printing. Hardcover. B&W Photographs; This book is in Very Good condition and is lacking a dust jacket. The book and its contents are in generally clean, bright condition. There is a noticeable backwards slant to the spine of the book. The covers have some edge wear, bumping and noticeable fraying to the spine ends and corners. The text pages are clean and bright. "Later that year Pevsner moved to England, settling in Hampstead, where poet Geoffrey Grigson was his next-door neighbour in Wildwood Terrace. Pevsner's first post was an 18-month research fellowship at the University of Birmingham, found for him by friends in Birmingham and partly funded by the Academic Assistance Council. A study of the role of the designer in the industrial process, the research produced a generally critical account of design standards in Britain which he published as An Enquiry into Industrial Art in England (Cambridge University Press, 1937). He was subsequently employed as a buyer of modern textiles, glass and ceramics for the Gordon Russell furniture showrooms in London. By this time Pevsner had also completed Pioneers of the Modern Movement: from William Morris to Walter Gropius, his influential pre-history of what he saw as Walter Gropius's dominance of contemporary design. Pioneers ardently championed Gropius's first two buildings (both pre–First World War) on the grounds that they summed up all the essential goals of 20th-century architecture; in England, however, it was widely taken to be the history of England's contribution to international modernism, and a manifesto for Bauhaus (i. E. Weimar) modernism, which it was not. [citation needed] In spite of that, the book remains an important point of reference in the teaching of the history of modern design, and helped lay the foundation of Pevsner's career in England as an architectural historian."

"The author of this book is a builder who believes that a house is as personal a thing as a suit of clothing; that it should fit the needs and personalities of those who live in it, and that it should wear well over a long period of time. He believes furthermore that it is possible, even on a tight budget, to avoid the rubber stamp look and achieve the dream house—providing, of course, that the dream is well thought out. Most of today's housing, he contends, offers us about half the value we should be getting for every dollar we spend. This book explains how, through proper choice of plan and materials, a family can get more house for the same money.". Very Good in Very Good+ dust jacket .

His modesty, confidence, passion for life, and no-nonsense approach resonated with a generation that, like himself, came of age in the World War II era. His influence extended through four subsequent generations as a popular professor of Architecture. Straub was a professor of architecture at University of Southern California (1946–1961) and Arizona State University (1961–1988). As a senior partner at Buff, Straub and Hensman, he joined forces with his former students and USC alumni to produce an important body of work. The lifestyle magazine Sunset often featured his accomplishments, which were considered influential in shaping a post-World War II contemporary Southern California style.". Very Good+ .
