Описание: A follow-up to the successful series Rooms to Inspire, this inspirational design guide presents a selection of novel urban interiors by the leading interior designers of our time.
City living evokes cosmopolitan sophistication and artistic expression. This presentation of trend-setting ways to design residences by leading tastemakers such as Muriel Brandolini, Peter Dunham, Jonathan Adler, and Mary McDonald, shows an impressive mix of styles—from eclectic and exotic to neo-traditional. The variety of beautifully photographed dwellings—from townhouses and apartments to lofts in such vibrant locales as New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Paris, London, and Jakarta—were chosen for their fresh design perspectives. This inspiring medley ranges from Carolina Irving’s Upper East Side–chic New York apartment with custom molding influenced by Gothic architecture to Robert Couturier’s elegant residence with curved walls, decorated by Paulin Paris. Universal design issues fundamental to living quarters are addressed, including color and comfort, as well as innovative approaches to tight spaces such as kitchens and bathrooms. Sections devoted to bookshelves, home entertaining, and tabletop display, along with a useful resource list, complete this guide to city style. For professionals and novices alike, Rooms to Inspire in the City encourages us to decorate our urban living spaces with panache.
Описание: This book is the result of pioneering research work at the Deutsches Architekturmuseum (DAM, German Museum of Architecture) in Frankfurt-on-the-Main. Investigated is the architectural model as distinct means and method of creating and presenting architecture or architectural ideas and concepts, rather than the model merely representing a specific building e.g. as part of an architect's oeuvre. While architectural photography and drawing has been subject of countless exhibitions and publications, no comparable research on the architectural model has been done so far. This book coincides with an exhibition at the DAM in summer 2012. The authors and curators have drawn from the museum's own vast collection of models created by over 400 architects from 25 countries. The book presents 100 models, featuring works of renowned architects such as Norman Foster, Arata Isozaki, Louis I. Kahn, Rem Koolhaas, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, Frei Otto, Aldo Rossi, Skidmore Owings & Merrill and James Stirling. The images are complemented by detailed descriptions of each item and by comprehensive essays on the results of the entire research project.
