Quincy Jones: Building for Better Living ISBN: 3791352652 ISBN-13(EAN): 9783791352657 Издательство: Prestel Publishing Limited Рейтинг: Цена: 3202 р. 4574.00-30% Наличие на складе: Есть (1 шт.) Описание: While A. Quincy Jones is most recognised as an architect of glamorous homes owned by Los Angeles' cultural elite, he was equally dedicated to less prosperous clients - middle-class families who were quickly populating the postwar Southern California landscape. As this fascinating book reveals, Jones and his collaborators were truly ahead of their time. Their vision of creating affordable, sophisticated and aesthetically pleasing structures prefigured the advent of several important architectural trends such as innovative and sustainable building designs, maximization of available space, careful detailing, and sensitive site planning. Filled with images from noted photographer Jason Schmidt, as well as with period photographs by Julius Shulman and others, this volume looks at every aspect of Jones' career. Original drawings, models, and furniture designs from the architect's personal archives illustrate a wide variety of projects featuring the hallmarks of Jones' style: soaring interior spaces, the blurring of indoor and outdoor spaces, laminated timber construction, angled walls, and innovate use of concrete, redwood, and glass. Essays explore Jones' quintessentially collaborative nature as he consulted with other noted architects, landscapers, interior designers, developers and city planners to create buildings of lasting beauty and importance.
Описание: For anyone who is in the process of building or renovating a home, sustainability is a critical issue especially since energy is likely to remain costly for the foreseeable future. Choosing to use resources responsibly makes as much of a statement about a home as the selection of floor plans, building materials, or furniture. Ideally, our homes should be sustainable and look good at the same time. Building Better showcases single-family homes from around the world whose architecture proves that sustainable and attractive are not contradictions. The book s selection of outstanding, top-quality work provides feasible examples for a new generation of homeowners with a discerning sense of style and environmental responsibility. The spectrum of featured projects ranges from energy efficient restoration and the construction of intelligent extensions to the planning and building of new low-energy or passive homes. The book introduces the latest building forms and materials as well as case studies examining the best division of space, architectural planning, and the use of innovative technologies to control and improve heating and air conditioning. Consequently, Building Better not only provides a striking overview of the topic of sustainable building, but also insightful information on details from technical data to blueprints. In the book, both architects and homeowners have their say. Families talk about their ideas, desires, motivations, and real experiences. Against this background, Building Better is both a practical and inspirational guide for anyone who sees sustainability not as limiting, but rather as a creative opportunity. As such, it is an essential reference for everyone who wants to build a better home.

Описание: Brassae, born in Hungary as Gyula Halasz in 1894, began his artistic apprenticeship in Berlin before moving to Paris and launching a career that would establish him as a key figure in the evolution of photography. Brassae's importance as a photo-grapher was recognized early in his career, affording him a privileged position from which to witness the varied aspects and milieus of Parisian life during the 1920s and 1930s. During and just after the war, Brassae collaborated with other artists and writers, and displayed his own artistic proficiency in multiple domains including theater, cinema, sculpture, drawing, and writing. The late 1940s marked the beginning of a new period in Brassae's life, during which he married and became a naturalized French citizen. In the 1950s and early 1960s, he traveled extensively and executed his original graffiti compositions that would acquire international fame. Toward the end of his life, the artist returned to reading and writing.Brassae, who remained at the cutting edge of avant-garde, refused to espouse a single style; his rich body of work exceeds definition. This illustrated biography is based largely on unpublished documents and photographs from the artist's personal archives. The author shares stories told to her by Brassae's wife Gilberte and by several of the artist's friends, including Henry Miller, Mire, Henri Michaux, and Raymond Queneau. Filtering a rich variety of sources, Brassae offers a detailed and multifaceted view of the artist's life and of the bonds that link him and his legendary images to Paris.

Описание: The Pentagon has been called good and evil by many people, but for those who work there it is simply "The Building". This instantly recognizable five-pointed
structure covers twenty-nine square acres of recovered swamp land, has five stories, and six million feet of floor space. From the beginning there has been more to the Pentagon than
merely concrete and steel, and this is the inside story of the men and women who have walked the corridors of power and brought this building to life.
From General George
Marshall, and Secretary of War Henry Simpson - both charged with defeating Germany and Japan in World War II - to the whiz-kid generation bought in by Robert McNamara under
John F Kennedy to combat the Communist threat, up to modern times and the restoration after the 9/11 attack, this book details the progress of this extraordinary building: the
personalities, a full analysis of the politics at work both inside and outside the building, and the evolving role that the Pentagon plays in National Security - a story inextricably linked to
the story of strength and power not only in America but across the world.
