Описание: This volume celebrates the warmth and easy elegance of traditional Southern architecture and interior design, featuring houses of unpretentious and old-fashioned grace that showcase the talents of the South s finest design professionals. Comfort and hospitality are words that express the spirit of simple Southern style. Featured in tantalizing photographs is a discerning selection of residences decorated by Bobby McAlpine, Ken Tate, Ryan Gainey, Jackye Lanham, Amelia Handegan, and others. Located in old Southern cities such as Atlanta, Charleston, Savannah, and New Orleans, as well as seaside and mountain retreats, these intimate dwellings are steeped in architectural tradition. The residences profiled illustrate fresh design interpretations of romantic Southern style, such as a New Orleans double-shotgun with a modern all-white palette, a nineteenth-century summer cottage with updated coastal decor, and a Louisiana plantation house with handsome Creole antiques. Two sections, "Pure and Simple" and "Simply Elegant," explore the varied ways that Southerners express their love of comfort and gracious living. Dating from the eighteenth century to the present, the houses featured exemplify historic styles that evolved in response to their natural settings, inviting families to live in harmony with their surroundings. Integrating time-honored lessons of the past, these cozy dwellings also incorporate contemporary design sensibilities, making them especially appealing for today s lifestyle.

Описание: La Scala, the Bolchoi, le Palais Garnier--opera houses are mythical places that evoke dreams and creativity. For centuries, these temples of the arts have been dedicated to the creative work of Mozart, Verdi, Tchaikovsky and Nureyev, and have been designed to allow brilliant performers to display their talents amidst sumptuous costumes and sets. Created by some of the most talented architects, builders and designers of their generations, opera houses have inspired veneration from audiences for centuries, from royalty and commoners alike. Moving from Sydney to Covent Garden, from Beijing to Saint Petersburg, from Oslo to Manaus, from le Petit Trianon to New York and San Francisco, photographer Guillaume de Laubier and journalist Antoine Pecqueur explore twenty-five of the world's most beautiful opera houses. They offer us a greater understanding of their architectural role, as well as their place in history. Whether baroque, romanesque, or minimalist, opera houses bear witness to the tides of history and to the ideals of those who built them. In addition to the sweeping views of ornate auditoriums and facades, the book opens doors normally closed to the public, entering the artists' dressing rooms, rehearsal halls, scenery workshops and more, presenting a wide-ranging and compelling look into the spectacular world of the opera.

Описание: The way we work is currently undergoing fundamental changes. Thanks to globalization and digitalization on the one hand and evolving corporate cultures, collaboration methods, working procedures, and hierarchical structures on the other, a range of new opportunities are opening up for both employers and employees. These promising possibilities, however, bring along significant challenges for the architecture of our workplaces and those who would like to use them. WorkScape reveals how the architecture of our working world is changing to keep up with these new developments. The book features an outstanding selection of examples from world-famous architects, who are implementing projects for large, innovative firms and pushing architectonic and aesthetic boundaries in the process. These include Meyer Scherer & Rockcastle for the Urban Outfitters campus in Philadelphia, Hofman Dujardin Architects for the Eneco s headquarters in Rotterdam, and 3XN for Saxo Bank in Copenhagen. This comprehensive survey showcases individual workplaces from executive suites to open-plan offices as well as conference rooms, spaces that facilitate teamwork, representative foyers, and functional surfaces. The book includes key locations for the more informal exchange of information including kitchenettes, lounges, and break rooms. In addition to documenting working environments, WorkScape also explores unconventional parameters that can make a workplace more attractive and that reflect new developments in the business world such as company-run childcare facilities, lunchrooms serving organic food, and corporate parking lots with charging stations for electric vehicles. WorkScape features compelling examples from global corporations, innovative medium-sized enterprises, and small creative studios. The book even includes extensive documentation of the specific features of temporary structures such as incubators for start-ups or co-working spaces for freelancers. Its thought-provoking overview of working environments for today and tomorrow makes WorkScape an invaluable reference for architects, interior designers, and product designers as well as companies and employees, who are looking to redefine their workplaces, impress their partners and clients, and inspire their staff.
