History of Architecture
History of Architecture
In a continuously running stream of events, The History of Architecture pieces together humankind's building prowess from 10,000 BCE, when humans began creating basic shelters from twigs and leaves, through to the wondrous feats of today, visible in futuristic skyscrapers and towers of concrete, steel and glass.

It covers religious and secular architecture, including places of worship, royal buildings, forts, commercial complexes, bridges, industrial buildings, transportation hubs and residences. Discover styles and sub-styles, ranging across civilisations and geographies through biographies, with great masters like Brunelleschi and Frank Lloyd Wright, whose works are considered landmarks of architectural achievement.

A famous architect once said, 'Ideally all buildings should be visited'. Practically impossible as that is, many of the more stupendous edifices can be `visited' through the pages of this book.

Home Upgrade New Homes in Remodeled Buildings
Home Upgrade New Homes in Remodeled Buildings
Upgrade 2 is the follow-up to Upgrade, Gestalten's hugely successful title on home extensions, alterations and refurbishments. While the need for housing continues to grow, so does architects' interest in responsible building practices. The renovation of old homes, or repurposing of existing sturctures for housing, occupies the convergence of these two concerns. The results are not only far more eco-conscious, but also thrillingly creative, from pre-fab housing on a budget to lush suburban residences, and even former churches or barns. Presenting both the technical aspects and the particular stories of each case, Upgrade 2 is the reference book for those who want to give the past something more than a fresh coat of paint.

Interior Landmarks Treasures of New York
Interior Landmarks Treasures of New York
The large format Interior Landmarks was the first book to survey the glories of New York's interior landmarks with carefully researched text and splendid new color photography. This updated affordable edition presents the same content, updated with current information about new ownership and uses for some landmarks. Located throughout the five boroughs of the city, the landmarked interiors include banks, theaters, office building lobbies, restaurants, libraries, civic and educational facilities, and more. Some are widely known and celebrated--Radio City Music Hall, the Great Hall at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and Grand Central Station--while others, like Loews Paradise Theater and the City Hall subway station, are virtually unknown.

Forty-six of the 117 landmarked interiors are presented, with a description of the original construction and architectural style and commentary on exceptional design, materials, and architectural details that warrant preservation. Recent restoration efforts and current use of the buildings are also included, making the book a valuable resource and reference work. A catalogue of all 117 interior landmarks, with names of their architects and locations, is also included.

Le Corbusier The Buildings
Le Corbusier The Buildings
Le Corbusier is widely acknowledged as the most influential architect of the twentieth century. As extensively researched and documented as his works are, however, they have never been exhaustively surveyed in photographs until now. Photographer Richard Pare has crossed the globe for years to document the extant works of Le Corbusier - from his first villas in Switzerland to his mid-career works in his role as the first global architect in locations as far-flung as Argentina and Russia, and his late works, including his sole North American project, at Harvard University, and an extensive civic plan for Chandigarh, India.

Le Corbusier: The Buildings provides numerous views of each project to bring a fuller understanding of the architect's command of space, sometimes surprising use of materials and color, and the almost ineffable qualities that only result from a commanding synthesis of all aspects of design. With an authoritative text by scholar and curator Jean-Louis Cohen, Le Corbusier: The Buildings is a groundbreaking opportunity to appreciate the master's work anew.
