Item description for Digital Eisenman: An Office of the Electronic era (The Information Technology Revolution in Architecture) by Luca Garofalo...

Wie verhlt sich heute ein innovativer Architekt angesichts der elektronischen Revolution, die im Gange ist? Die vorliegende Monografie sucht relevante Antworten auf diese Frage am Beispiel von Peter Eisenman (*1932, seit 1963 Bro in New York), der durch sein Denken und Wirken zu den einflureichsten Protagonisten der gegenwrtigen Architekturdebatte gehrt. Anhand eines Gesprchs Eisenmans mit dem Autor, einer erhellenden Auswahl von entsprechenden Passagen aus seinen Schriften, einer exakten Analyse von Projekten von Eisenman Architects, die sich gezielt mit diesem Themenkreis befassen - wie etwa Virtual House -, ergibt sich eine faszinierende Darstellung, die durch weitgehend unpubliziertes Bildmaterial ergnzt ist.

Reviews - What do customers think about Digital Eisenman: An Office of the Electronic era (The Information Technology Revolution in Architecture)?

55 illustrations on 96 pages 7.6 x 4.8 inches  Aug 19, 2006
This small size book is copiously illustrated with 55 extremely high quality photos (most in color) of models, computer generated renderings, schematics (including plans, sections, perspectives, site plans), office at work, graphics, etc. The text is very clear, sharp, and easy to read despite a small print of part of it, and as expected from Birkhauser. From the publishing technical point of view this book is perfect, but its small size is not an advantage. It is a solid review of a character of Eisenman's works on example of some particular ones, or rather of some methods to produce his works. It is not a monographic review of his works, but rather a handbook with snapshots showing some techniques employing computers and models similar to those used by Frank Gehry.
is it worth the fight?  Oct 22, 2001
This book is so tightly bound you will fear ripping it to shreds just trying to open it. Once open, and it is a struggle, you will be awe-struck at the beautiful reproductions of the near-impossible structures designed by Eisenman. Galofaro cuts the architect's excessively thick theory, asking simply, "how has digital production affected his theory based practice?" As tiny as this book is, it is BIG on content and imagery. The author has not spared us his investigations - unearthing some of the architect's little known projects (many unbuilt to date). And while it is not the singular authority on the work of Peter Eisenman, it is definately an essential addition to any collection on contemporary architecture.
