Описание: Interior designers and architects worldwide are using new concepts to make going to a restaurant a multisensory experience. Eating is more than a basic physical process. It is a social, aesthetic, and cultural need. We go out to meet friends or business partners, to try a new culinary trend, to relax in the familiarity of our favorite restaurant, or to revel in the multisensory experience of the latest tasting temple. It is always about more than just eating and drinking. We seek dramaturgy, emotion, and adventure. Atmosphere makes a difference and we increasingly want it to be all-consuming. Let s Go Out Again is an eclectic showcase of atmospheric eating spaces from around the world from New York, London, and Berlin to Haifa, Sydney, and Hong Kong. The featured projects represent state-of-the-art collaborations among architects, artists, designers, restaurateurs, and chefs that target not only all of our senses, but our identities and values too. Whether clean sculptural lines, mirrored facades, old industrial fittings, or cozy retro furnishings, Let s Go Out Again shows how interior designers combine at times unusual ingredients to arrive at a tasteful setting for a range of culinary tastes and occasions. The book is comprised of six chapters, each of which exemplifies an aesthetic and conceptual point of view: Understatement, Modern Musings, Rough and Local, Progressive, Graphic Spaces, and Dramatic. Each of these approaches goes beyond the visual to buoy and amplify the philosophies of the kitchens or bars that they help define. The result is a congenial synergy between flavor and atmosphere, place and taste.

Описание: Robert Adams: Perfect Places, Perfect Company is a two-volume reworking of a series of photographs that Robert Adams (born 1937) made in the mid-1980s at Colorado's Pawnee National Grassland. First published in 1988 under the title Perfect Times, Perfect Places, these photographs powerfully convey the deep sensory pleasure of walking in vast, open spaces. With Kerstin, his wife, and Sally, their dog, Robert Adams would drive out to the reserve to experience silence, stillness and affection; his walking companions occasionally appear in the frame, set against the Grassland's scrubby ground and infinite horizons. Although he is perhaps best known for picturing a damaged or modified American geography in publications such as The New West (1974) and From the Missouri West (1980), here Adams has recorded scenes that are flawless, efficiently implying the necessity of maintaining and fighting for these spaces. A New York Times article about the photographer published in 1989 immediately comprehended the stakes of Adams' project: "Robert Adams' pictures are not designed to be overtly political, but like any deeply felt images they are capable of reorganizing the way we perceive the world." With Perfect Places, Perfect Company, Adams shows us what we stand to lose.
