100 Years, 100 Buildings

Производитель: "Prestel"

The founder of the blog A Daily Dose of Architecture, John Hill, is obsessed with his subject and determined to expose his fellow citizens to the glorious structures that shape our environment. In this beautifully designed compendium Hill presents his selection of the most significant building to be built each year from 1916 to 2015. Each two-page spread includes one or two large color photos and text that explains the importance of each structure. Starting with H. P. Berlage`s Holland House in London and closing with Diller Scofidio + Renfro`s newly completed Broad museum in Los Angeles, Hill has combed the globe for iconic buildings. Notable inclusions are Helsinki Railroad Station; the Solimar Building in Cuba; Le Corbusier`s Mill Owners`Association building in Ahmadabad, India; Habitat 67, a housing complex in Montreal; and Tadao Ando`s Church of the Light in Osaka, Japan. What makes this collection so extraordinary is Hill`s criteria for the buildings included: each must be able to be seen, approached, or explored by the average person. An introductory essay and a timeline that highlights important architectural events round out this engrossing survey that demonstrates the underlying themes and developments in the world of architecture today.

Hill, John

▪ British author and botanist
born c. 1714, Peterborough?, Eng.
died Nov. 21, 1775, London
 English writer and botanist who compiled the first book on British flora to be based on the Linnaean nomenclature.

      After serving as an apprentice to an apothecary, Hill set up his own apothecary shop in London and studied botany in his spare time. Employed by the Duke of Richmond and Lord Petre to arrange their collections of plants, he travelled extensively to collect rare species for them. When these efforts failed to increase his income, he turned to writing plays, novels, and papers on natural history, medicine, astronomy, and geology. He edited the monthly British Magazine from 1746 to 1750 and contributed a daily society-gossip column to The London Advertiser and the Literary Gazette. His satirical writings often involved him in bitter quarrels.

      Hill's most lasting work was in botany. In 1759 the first of the 26 folio volumes of his Vegetable System was published. This work, containing 1,600 copper plate engravings, represented 26,000 different plants. Although not completed until 1775, it won for him the Order of Vasa from the king of Sweden. Thereafter he called himself “Sir” John Hill.
