Описание: Never Built Los Angeles explores the what if Los Angeles, investigating the values and untapped potential of a city still in search of itself. A treasure trove of buildings, master plans, parks, follies and mass-transit proposals that only saw the drawing board, the book asks: why is Los Angeles a mecca for great architects, yet so lacking in urban innovation? Featured are more than 100 visionary works that could have transformed both the physical reality and the collective perception of the metropolis, from Olmsted Brothers and Bartholomews groundbreaking 1930 Plan for the Los Angeles Region, which would have increased the amount of green space in the notoriously park-poor city fivefold; to John Lautners Alto Capistrano, a series of spaceship-like apartments hovering above a mixeduse development; to Jean Nouvels 2008 Green Blade, a condominium tower clad entirely in cascading plants. Through text and more than 400 colour and black-and-white illustrations drawn from archives around the U.S., Sam Lubell and Greg Goldin explore the visceral (and sometimes misleading) power of architectural ideas conveyed through sketches, renderings, blueprints, models and the now waning art of hand drawing. Many of these schemes promoting a denser, more vibrant city are still relevant today and could inspire future designs. Never Built Los Angeles will set the stage for a renewed interest in visionary projects in this, one of the worlds great cities.

Описание: The definitive survey of one of the great treasures of the English country landscape, and a jewel in the crown of British architectural heritage. Built in the 1720s for the first prime minister, Sir Robert Walpole, Houghton Hall remains one of England's finest Palladian houses. A collaboration between the two defining British architects of the age - Colen Campbell and James Gibbs - and with lavish interiors by William Kent, Houghton was built expressly with an eye to reflecting the wealth, taste, and power of its owner. During the eighteenth century, Walpole also amasse the greatest collection of art in Britain, and Houghton would be a museum to the collection. Guided by the present owner, the seventh Marquess of Cholmondeley, this is a tour of the house like no other. With stunning photographs by Derry Moore - some shot specially for the book, capturing the evolution and preservation of the remarkable interiors - the book explores every aspect of the house and its grounds. Supplemented with images from the Marquess's archives, the book also reveals the range of Walpole's collection and the mastery of the craftsmen who shaped the museum around it - including paintings sold to Catherine the Great, which were returned temporarily from the Hermitage in 2013 to their original positions in the state rooms for the first time since 1797. The book is timed to coincide with a travelling exhibition of magnificent masterpieces from Houghton's permanent collection, which opens in June 2014 at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, and will travel to several venues across the United States.
Описание: This scholarly publication accompanies the first major exhibition held in Britain to focus on the more intimate types of Georgian and Regency portraiture. While
oil paintings and sculpture dominated the public arena of portraiture, more private portraits were being created for domestic consumption and display. Nearly two hundred works, drawn
from the collections of the National Galleries of Scotland and the British Museum, by leading artists including Gainsborough, Ramsay, Wilkie and Lawrence, are illustrated and
catalogued within thematic sections on self-portraits, depictions of family and friends and commissioned portraits of the rising middle classes and the celebrities of the day.
two introductory essays by the co-curators Stephen Lloyd and Kim Sloan discuss aspects of the intimacy in viewing.
