Описание: Originally published in 1980, this was the first biography of William Wilkins, the regency architect whose reputation once rivalled that of Nash and who is probably the best known today as the designer of the National Gallery in London. The commissions he executed form an important part of our knowledge of the period; Wilkins' earliest major scheme was Downing College, Cambridge (1806) which helped to spark the Greek revival in Britain. He also, however, had a taste for the gothic, as evinced in his screen for the front of King's College. Making use of letters, sketches and notebooks, Dr Liscombe studies Wilkins's career in detail. He charts his development from mathematics student at Cambridge to Professor of Architecture at the Royal Academy; he notes the technical innovations that affected his designs; he considers political and social ideas that lay behind his work; and he examines his friendships with influential figures.

Описание: Will Alsop (architect) and Bruce McLean (artist) have worked together for many years on concepts and working drawings for proposals. This book documents their collaborative process, and joins McLean's boldness of spirit and risk-taking chutzpah with Alsop's assertion of individual creativity in architecture in the belief that it can contribute to the lives of people and communities.
Описание: From sprawling houses to compact bungalows and from world-famous museums to a still-working gas station, Frank Lloyd Wright's designs can be found in nearly every corner of the country. While the renowned architect passed away more than fifty years ago, researchers and enthusiasts are still uncovering structures that should be attributed to him. William Allin Storrer is one of the experts leading this charge, and his definitive guide, The Architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright, has long been the resource of choice for anyone interested in Wright. Thanks to the work of Storrer and his colleagues at the Rediscovering Wright Project, thirty-seven new sites have recently been identified as the work of Wright. Together with more photos, updated and expanded entries, and a new essay on the evolution of Wright's unparalleled architectural style, this new edition is the most comprehensive and authoritative catalog available. Organized chronologically, the catalog includes full-color photos, location information, and historical and architectural background for all of Wright's extant structures in the United States and abroad, as well as entries for works that have been demolished over the years. A geographic listing makes it easy for traveling Wright fans to find nearby structures and a new key indicates whether a site is open to the public. Publishing for Wright's sesquicentennial, this new edition will be a trusted companion for anyone embarking on their own journeys through the wonder and genius of Frank Lloyd Wright.
