Описание: From Jack the Ripper Stalks His Victims, his 1992 graduate collection, to Plato's Atlantis, the last show before his death in 2010, Lee Alexander McQueen was as celebrated for the meticulous craftsmanship and stunning originality of his designs as he was notorious for his theatrical — and often controversial — runway shows.
Taking his inspiration from sources as diverse as his own Scottish ancestry, Alfred Hitchcock movies and Yoruba mythology, McQueen brought together exquisite tailoring and avant-garde performance art. Combining gripping narrative and vivid photography with quotes from the designer and those who knew him best, this book brings each of the designer’s runway shows to life, including a look at the pieces and inspiration behind Angels and Demons, the show he was working on before his untimely death.
This is the definitive, immersive account of a unique career and a fitting tribute to the enfant terrible of British fashion.

Описание: The sleek lines and gleaming facades of the architecture of the late 1940s and 1950s reflect a culture fascinated by the promise of the Jet Age. This work draws on a vast range of sources to argue that the aesthetics of mid-century modern architecture reflect an increasing fascination with `glamour`.
Описание: This richly photographed volume is a celebration of what is, at once, an ancient symbol of shelter and harvest and, as well, a quintessential American architectural form. Widely revered yet steadily vanishing from our cultural landscape, the barn is an expression of pastoral romance, honest effort, painstaking craftsmanship, and tradition - a tradition that we are in danger of losing. Barn: Rescue and Adaptation, Revised and Expanded is a magnificent, abundantly illustrated volume that examines the remarkable story a true architectural icons. In this authoritative exploration, the authors, both practitioners of barn restoration and historic-barn moving, offer a tribute and guide to the many extant forms of American barn, following the evolution of the form from this country's earliest days, and, as well, tell the story of their efforts to restore, adapt, and repurpose these simple, soulful structures. Barns embody the ethos of another age and harken back to those days when the world moved more slowly, an ethos still to be found in these beautiful buildings - yet, due to the ravages of time, weather, and neglect these essential American edifices are threatened, as never before. This volume reminds us that barns are as much a part of us as our love of apple pie, and as such should be cherished for their artistry and cultural significance. This revised and expanded edition of Barn coincides with the premier of the PBS series Barnstruck and describes the process of barn preservation through relocation, focusing on the work of The New Jersey Barn Company, whose dedicated efforts over 35 years have saved more than 150 structures.

Описание: Barcelona can be regarded as a prototype of a European Mediterranean city with a long urban tradition. As such, it has undergone a specific process of historic formation: density and compactness of urban form, evolution by extension rather than by reform, etc. A history of urban planning necessarily includes a summary of the territorial and urban experience, and pays particular attention to the physical dimensions of the city that condition its cultural and economic development. This book centers on the construction of Barcelona, taking as its basis the most important planning operations and city projects, and drawing on various sources for the different phases. Its urban development was very varied, even without taking into account the interventions of royalty or aristocrats that produced large avenues and parks. The local scale of many of the projects contrasts with the cosmopolitan aspirations that have made some of these interventions so innovative; these might include some of the major projects carried out for special events, such as the events in 1888 (World Exhibition), 1929 (Electrical Industries Exhibition) and 1992 (Olympic Games). Now, in the 21st century, new prospects are opening up thanks to the recent European institutional framework, particularly changes in the economic system to a post-industrial phase, during which the various means of communication are coming to the fore. It is difficult to gauge the spatial repercussions, but the urban planning history of Barcelona shows how it has already overcome major contradictions in recent centuries.
