Art Deco
Art Deco
Art deco is the 20th century's most glamorous architectural style, and the one that shaped popular ideas of modern luxury. With over 200 photographs, this is a visual celebration of this very popular style. Unlike most other books on the subject that tend to be regionally specific, this book highlights Art Deco buildings from all over the world, from Australia to South America, with an emphasis on London, Los Angeles, New York, Chicago, Miami, and Paris. Art Deco features much careful and exacting detail, and of special interest in this book are photos that zoom in on murals, mosaics, flooring, ironwork, and other ornamental flourishes.

Art Deco began in 1925 and quickly swept the globe becoming the style epitomising Jazz Age glamor and sophistication. It drew from a variety of influences including ancient Egyptian, Moorish, and Mayan motifs but also modernist movements like Cubism, Fauvism, and De Stijl. Its influence was felt everywhere, from the skylines of New York to Shanghai, and it gained prominence not only with architects and designers but enjoyed a passionate following among the public as well.

Art of Architectural Daylighting
Art of Architectural Daylighting
During the past decade there has been a tremendous growth in daylighting analysis methods, allowing designers to meet ever higher standards. But in relying too heavily on these methods, there is a risk of reducing daylighting design to a quantitative exercise, overlooking the qualitative, aesthetic, and experiential aspects of design. This book reveals how architects have bridged the poetic and practical potential of daylighting to create exquisitely illuminated spaces.

In the book, 12 buildings are examined, using photographs, drawings, and plans. Each case study also includes technical analysis diagrams, specially created using specialist software. Featured architects include Renzo Piano, David Chipperfield, and Steven Holl.

The Art of Architectural Daylighting will be invaluable for professionals and students alike.

Art of Landscape Architecture
Art of Landscape Architecture
Artistic interpretation of the landscape was transformed when artists started working directly in the landscape itself. At the same time, architects explored strategies aimed at integrating humans and habitats within the environment. This book showcases the ways in which designers have created living spaces within the built and natural environments - areas of harmony between man and nature.

Axel Vervoordt Portraits of Interiors
Axel Vervoordt Portraits of Interiors
Eighteen recently-designed homes demonstrate how Axel Vervoordt incorporates nature, art, and timeless interiors to create living spaces that encourage self-reflection, inspiration, and happiness.

For a half century, Axel Vervoordt's vision has been defined by a continual quest for harmony, beauty, and the creation of interior atmospheres that are rooted in the past, connected to the future, and imbued with today's comforts. Here, the designer reveals his guiding philosophy and pursuit to uncover the profound sense of well-being that a home can evoke.

These eighteen residences-from an urban New York penthouse or Moscow apartment to a waterfront estate in New England, and from a Tokyo dwelling to a Bordeaux wine chateau or a Wabi farmhouse-reveal how art complements architecture and the elements of nature in an alchemy of Vervoordt expression. Portraits of each residence-including the Vervoordts' own homes in Venice and Belgium-feature sweeping vistas of the surrounding landscape and a tour through the interiors. Each detail-from the materials used to the graceful placement of a well-chosen object-offer deep insight into the Vervoordt design approach and abiding principles for living and working well.

A home should be an oasis, a haven that fosters a sense of well-being and joy. Axel Vervoordt demonstrates how-through the creation of timeless interiors-a home can convey a spirit of generosity, love, and emotion to all who cross the threshold.

Battle for Modernism
Battle for Modernism
The other side of twentieth-century architectural history in Italy and Europe. The short-lived cultural journal Quadrante transformed the practice of architecture in fascist Italy. Over the course of three years (1933-36), the magazine agitated for an "architecture of the state" that would represent the values and aspirations of the fascist regime, and in so doing it changed the language with which architcts and their clientele addressed the built environment. Quadrante rallied supporters and organized the most prominent practitioners and benefactors of Italian rationalism into a coherent movement that advanced the cause of specific currents of modern architecture in interwar Italy. Through a detailed study of Quadrante and its circle of architects, critics, artists, and patrons, the book investigates the relationship between modern architecture and fascist political practices in Italy during Benito Mussolini's regime (1922-1943).
