The work of Gian Lorenzo Bernini (1598-1680) has virtually defined the Baroque style in the visual arts. Bernini's famous Square of St. Peter's and Scala Regia at the Vatican transformed the forecourt of the basilica and the vestibule of the Papal Palace into breathtaking theatrical sets. While Bernini is famous for his masterly integration of painting, sculpture, and architecture in one site -- in the Chapel of St. Teresa, for example -- most specialists tended to focus exclusively on his sculpture. T.A. Marder is the first to create an extensive narrative considering all of Bernini's architectural achievements and his art at these sites, along with an interpretation of their meaning. Full-color photography specially commissioned for this project shows the sites as they were meant to be seen in the 17th century; these pictures are complemented by relevant drawings and photos of related buildings by other architects. Professor Marder's lively text discusses the political and personal causes that shaped each commission, well as problems of construction, questions of interpretation, and consideration of the sculpture programs in each commission.

The Pantheon is one of the most important architectural monuments of all time. Thought to have been built by Emperor Hadrian in approximately AD 125 on the site of an earlier, Agrippan-era monument, it brilliantly displays the spatial pyrotechnics emblematic of Roman architecture and engineering. The Pantheon gives an up-to-date account of recent research on the best preserved building in the corpus of ancient Roman architecture from the time of its construction to the twenty-first century. Each chapter addresses a specific fundamental issue or period pertaining to the building; together, the essays in this volume shed light on all aspects of the Pantheon's creation, and establish the importance of the history of the building to an understanding of its ancient fabric and heritage, its present state, and its special role in the survival and evolution of ancient architecture in modern Rome.

The first global history of architecture to give equal attention to Western and non-Western structures and built landscapes, Architecture since 1400 is unprecedented in its range, approach, and insight. From Tenochtitlan’s Great Pyramid in Mexico City and the Duomo in Florence to Levittown’s suburban tract housing and the Bird’s Nest Stadium in Beijing, its coverage includes the world’s most celebrated structures and spaces along with many examples of more humble vernacular buildings. Lavishly illustrated with more than 300 photographs, plans, and interiors, this book presents key moments and innovations in architectural modernity around the globe. Deftly integrating architectural and social history, Kathleen James-Chakraborty pays particular attention to the motivations of client and architect in the design and construction of environments both sacred and secular: palaces and places of worship as well as such characteristically modern structures as the skyscraper, the department store, and the cinema. She also focuses on the role of patrons and addresses to an unparalleled degree the impact of women in commissioning, creating, and inhabiting the built environment, with Gertrude Jekyll, Lina Bo Bardi, and Zaha Hadid taking their place beside Brunelleschi, Sinan, and Le Corbusier. Making clear that visionary architecture has never been the exclusive domain of the West and recognizing the diversity of those responsible for commissioning, designing, and constructing buildings, Architecture since 1400 provides a sweeping, cross-cultural history of the built environment over six centuries.

Die Bildhauer des römischen Barock, darunter Meister wie Gian Lorenzo Bernini, Alessandro Algardi und Giuliano Finelli, erreichten eine beispiellose Lebendigkeit ihrer Werke. Dem augenscheinlichen Leben widerspricht jedoch beharrlich die harte Materialität dieser Skulpturen. Weiches, bewegtes Fleisch, dramatische Bewegungen und flatternde Stoffe sind in hartem, leblosem Marmor gefangen. So fordert die Skulptur den Betrachter heraus und sorgt für Verwirrung oder auch Enttäuschung. Anhand zeitgenössischer Poesie und anderer Quellen, welche die Interaktion zwischen Betrachter und Skulptur reflektieren, untersucht diese Studie, wie Zeitgenossen mit diesem Doppelcharakter der Skulptur umgingen. Dabei werden auch Ansätze der modernen Psychologie miteinbezogen. Das Ergebnis ist ein neuer Zugang zu einigen der höchstgeschätzten Meisterwerke europäischer Kunst.
