  • The C.G.A. was founded by William Broomhall in 1893 as a society of landowners, land agents, farmers and others interested in the land. He was managing director at the time of publication of this volume which stands alone but was part of a series of publications of the same name. The works department of the association was located at Letchworth Garden City. These whole series of publications were produced to advise members about good architectural design practices and formed part of their range of publications for members on all aspects of estate management. They are particularly interesting as they reveal predilection for the arts and crafts movement designers by Broomhall and his contemporaries. Hard to find.

  • [TSCHUMI, Bernard] DERRIDA, Jacques and VIDLER Anthony [ essays by]
    Bernard Tschumi: La Case Vide La Villette

    London Architectural Association Folio VIII 1985

    20 drawings + 28pp text in stapled booklet. A little faded on the spine else internally a very good copy. With an interview with Alvin Boyarsky. La Villette has been hailed as the first major piece of Deconstructivist architecture and this box concerns the follies constructed there on a grid like structure. The title means literally "The Empty House" but the formal constructs at La Villette are certainly not lacking in meaning even if they arguably were functionless. A fascinating box of images which have become iconic in their own right. Hard to find. Incidently, Tschumi's winning entry for the 1982 Parc de la Villette Competition in Paris became his first major public work.

Box is a little dusty with small nick on lower edge else very good copy. The 18 plates are each composed of nine Polaroid images that can be assembled in any arrangement to form a composite work, called Nine Times. The images on these plates were the most controversial of Holmes' work at the time of publication, in both form and content: unlikely combinations of fragments of contemporary living -- urban waste, trucks, flowers, animals and images culled from the TV screen.
