Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments

Architect Irving J. Gill (1870-1936) is widely considered the first and preeminent architect of the Modernist era. In her groundbreaking work Five California Architects, Esther McCoy asserts that, along with Bernard Maybeck, Charles and Henry Greene, and R.M. Schindler, Gill is one of California’s most important architects. Gibbs Smith, Publisher, is proud to present this definitive monograph on the life and architectural achievements of Irving Gill, with insightful text by respected architectural critic Joseph Giovannini and brilliant photography by Marvin Rand. As one of the most influential architects of the late nineteenth to early twentieth century, Gill is said to have been so far advanced for his time that there was yet no discussion of modernism–it simply had not emerged as a movement or a consciousness. Gill followed no one, choosing instead to lead a paradigm shift from crafts construction to mechanic building, particularly in light of the development and evolution of concrete as material of choice. Giovannini discusses Gill’s personal and professional background, the evolution of his work, his epiphany in the period from 1907 through 1910, and the application and development of Gill’s vision through his remaining work in the Los Angeles area. This book is a must-own for any serious scholar or fan of Gill, California architecture, modernism, and turn-of-the-century development in building. Joseph Giovannini has written numerous books and articles on urban design. Currently, he is the architecture critic for New York Magazine, and also writes for Architectural Record, The New York Times, Art in America, ArtForum, Architecture Magazine, Metropolis, Domus, and InternationalDesign. He is the principal of Joseph Giovannini Designs. He holds a Masters of Architecture from Harvard University; attended the Academy of Fine Arts in Rome, and La Sorbonne in Paris; and holds a Bachelor of Arts in English Literature from Yale University. He has held teaching positions at the University of Southern California, Pratt Institute, University of California-Los Angeles, and Columbia University Graduate School of Architecture. Marvin Rand has tried to extend architecture to an art, showing the quality of emotion through light and shadow, by using what is in the subject matter–strong line and form. He has been published in numerous books and magazines throughout the world and has been showcased in major exhibitions. He is the author of Greene & Greene (Gibbs Smith, Publisher, 2005). Rand lives in Marina del Rey, California.

Synopsis

Architect Irving J. Gill (1870-1936) is widely considered the first and preeminent architect of the Modernist era. In her groundbreaking work Five California Architects, Esther McCoy asserts that, along with Bernard Maybeck, Charles and Henry Greene, and R. M. Schindler, Gill is one of California’s most important architects. This book looks at the life and architectural achievements of Gill, with brilliant photography by Marvin Rand and McCoy’s insightful text from Five California Architects, s well as her essay for an exhibition catalog for the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. Additionally, Gill’s own writings–reprinted here from The Craftsman (1910) and a magazine article in the early part of the century–describe his architectural and design philosophy. As one of the most influential architects of the late nineteenth to early twentieth century, Gill is said to have been so far advanced for his time that there was yet no discussion of modernism–it simply had not emerged as a movement of a consciousness. Gill followed no one, choosing instead to lead a paradigm shift from crafts construction to mechanic building, particularly in light of the development and evolution of concrete as material of choice. The stunning combination of Rand’s photographic art and McCoy’s writing makes Irving J. Gill an important addition to the library of any serious scholar or fan of Gill, California architecture, modernism, or turn-of-the-century development in building.Marvin Rand gained his photographic education at Los Angeles City College, the U.S. Air Force Photographic School, and Art Center College of Design. He has made a career as an architectural photographer, and his clients have includedCharles Eames, Cesar Pelli, Louis Kahn, Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, Gwathmey/Siegal & Associates, William Pereira & Associates, the Museum of Modern Art and Metropolitan Museum of Art, to name a few. His photographs have been featured in twenty exhibitions–from Los Angeles to Washington, DC, and New York–and in twenty-three books, including seminal books on Greene and Greene authored by Randell L. Makinson and Five California Architects by Esther McCoy. His first monograph, Greene and Greene, was published in 2005. Rand lives in Marina del Rey, California, with his wife, Mary Ann Danin.
