Changing of the Avant-garde by Paola Antonelli

Book Description

What would it be like to live in R. Buckminster Fuller's hexagonal Dymaxion House? To visit Arata Isozaki's project for Hiroshima? To grow up in John Hejduk's Wall House? There are only fictional answers to questions such as these, but what imagination wouldn't ponder them upon seeing the drawings assembled in The Changing of the Avant-Garde? Featuring 165 expertly reproduced visionary architectural drawings from The Museum of Modern Art's Howard Gilman Archive, this collection brings together a selection of idealized, fantastic and utopian architectural drawings, mainly from the 1960s and 70s. This publication, the first to consider the drawings since the archive was established in 1998, is accompanied by essays exploring the significance of the works, and an interview with Pierre Apraxine, the former curator of the collection, by Paola Antonelli.

Bio Design by Paola Antonelli Bio Design, Hardback (October 2012)

Pasta by Design by Paola Antonelli Pasta by Design, Hardback (September 2011)

Takes a fresh look at pasta, one of the world's most popular foods. It compiles and profiles 92 different kinds of pasta, classifying them into types using the science of phylogeny (the study of relatedness among natural forms). It presents a pasta family tree, revealing unexpected relationships between pasta shapes, their usage and common DNA.

Talk to Me by Paola Antonelli Talk to Me, Paperback (August 2011)

Published in conjunction with an exhibition at The Museum of Modern Art, this title thrives on an important late 20th-century cultural development in design: a shift from the centrality of function to that of meaning.
