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: Painted in Paris on the eve of World War One, the Metaphysical cityscapes of Giorgio de Chirico (1888-1978) redirected the course of modernist painting and the modern architectural imagination alike. Giorgio de Chirico and the Metaphysical City examines the two most salient dimensions of the artist’s early imagery: its representations of architectural space and its sustained engagement with the philosophy of Friedrich Nietzsche. Centering upon a single painting from 1914 – deemed by the painter 'the fatal year' – each chapter examines why and how de Chirico’s self-declared 'Nietzschean method' takes architecture as its pictorial means and metaphor. The first, full-length study in English to focus on the painter’s seminal work from pre-war Paris, the book places de Chirico’s 'literary' images back in the context of the city’s avant-garde, particularly the circle of Guillaume Apollinaire. Merjian’s study sheds light on one of the most influential and least understood figures in 20th-century aesthetics, while also contributing to an understanding of Nietzsche’s paradoxical consequences for modernism.

Описание: In England, gardening and garden-visiting are national obsessions. More than 80 years ago, the National Gardens Scheme (NGS) was founded with the aim of raising money for charity by opening gardens of quality and interest to the public. In the first year, some 600 gardens were opened. Today, over 3800 gardens – many of them privately owned and opened for just a few days each year – are listed in The Yellow Book, the annual guide published by the NGS. The Gardens of England gives you the opportunity to enjoy 50 of the country’s greatest garden gems from the comfort of your armchair. Each of the five chapters is written by a different leading gardens expert, and surveys 10 gardens opened as part of the NGS during a particular period. George Plumptre, Chief Executive of the NGS, provides an engaging introduction on garden-visiting, and 12 well-known gardeners offer a personal account of their favourite NGS garden. Featuring established and new gardens of all styles, this is a book that no lover of the English garden should be without.

Описание: Green areas of all kinds have gained significance for contemporary urban planning. In addition to the importance for the structure and appearance of urban spaces, these areas have a wide range social, ecological and economic functions. For instance, they can serve as relaxation and communication rooms, or as habitats for flora and fauna they can have an extremely positive influence on the micro-climate, not to mention the increasing attention they receive from the real estate business as a factor in site evaluation. This volume presents a broad spectrum of green areas in cities like urban parks, public roof gardens greened facades, and city squares. The interplay of international trends, regional characteristics and local traditions is especially interesting. The selection of projects shows the various tendencies of this discipline at the junction of landscape architecture and urban planning.

Описание: For the first time, this book explores to the full, with dazzling visual accompaniment, the fascinating story of the Impressionist love affair with the new thinking about gardens, their flowers and design, in 19th-century France. It discusses the artists both as painters and as gardeners, and, using source material such as contemporary gardening manuals, offers exciting new interpretations of their art. It also looks at the garden, public or private, as a new kind of space with political undertones, and relates it to the Impressionists’ adoption of plein-air techniques. While the approach is to concentrate on analyses of specific works, the historical context is presented in a clear, informative and engaging manner. There is also some lively discussion of the private lives of these artists.
