Abstract

In ""Between Garden and City"", Dorothee Imbert examines the career of Belgian landscape architect Jean Canneel-Claes (1909-1989), firmly establishing his place in the modernist movement. Canneel's theoretical positions and innovative designs sought to align the emergent landscape profession with architecture and urbanism while demonstrating its potential to address the needs of modern society. Canneel studied at La Cambre (Belgium's equivalent to the Bauhaus) under landscape urbanist Louis van der Swaelmen and graduated as the school's first landscape architect in 1931. Dedicated to connecting architecture and garden design, he commissioned a house from Le Corbusier and collaborated with prominent Belgian modernist architects Louis Herman De Koninck, Huib Hoste, and Victor Bourgeois. Seeing the garden as part of a larger design environment, Canneel expanded the scale of his interventions to urban greening and the planning of cities. In 1938, Canneel joined forces with Christopher Tunnard to found the International Association of Modernist Garden Architects and further the cause of landscape modernism across Europe. Two years later, Canneel applied his theory of the functionalist garden to postwar reconstruction with designs for cemeteries, sports grounds, and town squares. Imbert examines the social context and the aesthetic and theoretical influences that shaped Canneel's work. She positions him as a major figure at the confluence of art, architecture, and urbanism in the early twentieth century and opens new avenues for understanding the relationship of modernism to gardens, nature, and the city.

Abstract

Iñaki Ábalos and Juan Herreros established the renowned architectural firm Ábalos & Herreros in Madrid in 1984. At the time, Ábalos and Herreros's melding of design with a range of publications and curatorial projects presented a remarkable challenge to assumptions about the role of an architect. In 2012, the Canadian Centre for Architecture obtained the Ábalos & Herreros archive, which contains documents related to more than 160 projects. The material comprises sketches, slides, models, collages, and drawings. The archive presents a compelling opportunity to reconstruct Ábalos and Herreros's planning and design process. This book is the first to draw on the firm's archive to offer a new take on this important architectural practice.

Abstract

Aldo van Eyck (1918-1998) is one of a small group of Dutch architect for whom writing was as important as designing. His work can be described as a thought expressed in images and in words. In historical overviews he is seen as having an important role in post-war architecture. The authors consider him to have made a significant contribution to architectural theory and a key resource person in Team. Van Eyck was one of the few modernists who subjected architecture to serious reflection. The second part is a collection of Van Eyck's writings from the years 1947 to 1998. This texts cover a wide range of subjects, and include his polemic on postmodernism and his articles and lectures about artists and architects such as Carel Visser, Joost van Rooijen, Jaap Bakema, and Jan Rietveld.
