Henri Labrouste Structure Brought to Light, MOMA, Signed 1st Ed

$150

About

Henri Labrouste: Structure Brought to Light MOMA Mar 10–Jun 24, 2013 Exhibition Catalog. New York Museum of Modern Art 2012. Signed by the author, Barry Bergdoll, 1st Ed hardcover with dust jacket. This was the first solo exhibition of Labrouste’s work in the US. It established his work as a milestone in the modern evolution of architecture. The exhibition included over 200 works, from original drawings—many of them watercolors of great beauty and precision—to vintage and modern photographs, films, architectural models, and fragments. Labrouste made an invaluable impact on 19th-c architecture through his exploration of new paradigms of space, materials, and luminosity in places of public assembly. His two magisterial glass-and-iron reading rooms in Paris, the Bibliothèque Sainte-Geneviève (1838–50) and the Bibliothèque nationale (1859–75), gave form to the IDEA of the modern library as a temple of knowledge and as a space for contemplation. Labrouste also sought a redefinition of architecture by introducing new materials and new building technologies. His spaces are at once overwhelming in the daring modernity of their exposed metal frameworks, lightweight walls, and brightness, and immersive in their timelessness. Also featured were works by an international array of architects, such as Labrouste’s pupils in France, Spain, the Netherlands, Peru, and the United States, and projects with more distant relationships by architects such as; Louis Sullivan, Frank Lloyd Wright, and Richard Rogers, were also featured. NPT Books, a division of Trent Antiques, has a large collection of used and out of print books on art, architecture, decoration and antiques with a focus on 1st editions, signed and limited editions.
