Описание: William T. Baker’s work is inspired by the bounty of classical architecture found in the grand homes of the southern United States, particularly the state of Georgia. The hallmarks of his architecture are extraordinary attention to details of craftsmanship and construction, and a keen eye for scale and proportion.
Throughout the pages of this richly illustrated book, we meet the families who have entrusted him with their dreams and visions and whose trust has been rewarded with classically inspired homes of grace and beauty. His work contributes greatly to some of the most aesthetically pleasing residences being built in the United States today.

Описание: As with the first in the series, this close-up of contemporary domestic architecture in the USA focuses on a select group of living units, and analyzes each one's
various aspects of function, distribution, composition and visual impact, with an eye also to each home's rapport with its surroundings. This rich selection of new designs for single-family
homes, whether located in the countryside or on the East Coast shoreline,
whether the brainchild of famous or less well-known architects, provides an overview of American interior design today and a cogent confirmation of the extraordinary opportunities
afforded by single-family home design in the United States.
Описание: This architectural monograph showcases some of the most refined and elegant new classical residences of the last decade in America, an increasingly popular form for new homes, restoration, and renovations.
Описание: The work shown at the U.S. Pavilion at the 2010 Venice Biennale is vital and proactive, suggesting solutions, describing the possibilities of new techniques or technologies, or re-framing the problems of the city, and, in the process, defining a new model of architectural practice. From John Portman's architectas-initiator model to cityLAB's research-based, innovative community-driven proposals, these works seek to define their own problems, audiences, and missions. The can-do spirit of each of these projects echo the collaborative, team-based methodologies of 306090 Books, co-presenters of the U.S. Pavilion with Atlanta's High Museum of Art. The impressive scale, reach, and beauty of the participants' projects makes their ground-up formation all the more inspiring.
Описание: In 1798 Robert Morris - "financier of the American Revolution", confidante of George Washington, recent US Senator - plunged from the peaks of wealth and prestige into debtor`s prison and public contempt. Setting Morris` tale in the context of the nation`s founding, this title focuses on an essential yet nearly forgotten American figure.
Описание: For more than 60 years, passersby have strained to catch a glimpse of maverick architect Harry Gesner's houses in Southern California. This is the first book to examine Gesner's architecture, tracing his career from 1945 to the present and opening the doors to 15 of Gesner's intriguing homes, all located in or near Los Angeles and built in the 1950s and 1960s. An insightful and revealing text accompanies new photography by Juergen Nogai along with historical photographs and Gesner's own drawings, floor plans, and blueprints drawn from his remarkably rich archive. Gesner's utterly unique, often eccentric and unorthodox designs are outside the canons of doctrinaire modernism, yet he is undoubtedly a Modernist, and one whose romantic, quixotic nature has caused his truly extraordinary body of work to be overlooked by many--until now. Praise for Houses of the Sundown Sea "Harry Gesner's life story is so exciting that a new monograph on his work reads like a John Buchan tale, or the next Laura Hillenbrand project, instead of the usual jargon-infested coffee-table book about a venerable architect." --New York Times "As soon as design junkies get a glimpse of Gesner's soaring creations, they're sure to be wild about Harry." --Los Angeles Times Magazine "The stories about Gesner] life's adventures are almost as glorious as the nature-inspired homes he builds, and both are detailed in an about-to-be released coffee table book" --The Huffington Post
"A compelling mix of prose and photos" --Los Angeles magazine
