5.0 out of 5 stars Koenig, January 17, 2008

This review is from: Pierre Koenig: 1925-2004: Living with Steel (Taschen Basic Genre Series) (Paperback)
Pierre Koenig was one of the finest architects of the mid-20th Century. His 1960 Stahl House (well illustrated here) has been seen by millions of people in movies, television and especially, television ads. It's the glass enclosed living room/pavilion with a swimming pool in the foreground and all of Los Angeles as a background. This small Taschen book, part of a rather large series, talks about his career and buildings and is well worth the purchase price of $9.99. If your're a fan of the Arts and Architecture Case Study houses, as I am, you will love this little book.

This review is from: Pierre Koenig: 1925-2004: Living with Steel (Taschen Basic Genre Series) (Paperback)
Good, short and reasonably priced overview of a Southern California architect who would have been largely unknown if not for Julius Shulman's great nightime picture.

Gives you a distinct feel not only for Koenig's signature architecture, but for the man as well. Highly recommended book.

Esteban Montero (Miami, Florida United States) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Pierre Koenig: 1925-2004: Living with Steel (Taschen Basic Genre Series) (Paperback)
Simplemente asombroso, un pequeño libro que nos muestra cómo la mente de un hombre se adelanto prácticamente un siglo al diseño y arquitectura contemporánea.
Muy bien precio para este pequeño viaje.
