Описание: Interior designers and architects worldwide are using new concepts to make going to a restaurant a multisensory experience. Eating is more than a basic physical process. It is a social, aesthetic, and cultural need. We go out to meet friends or business partners, to try a new culinary trend, to relax in the familiarity of our favorite restaurant, or to revel in the multisensory experience of the latest tasting temple. It is always about more than just eating and drinking. We seek dramaturgy, emotion, and adventure. Atmosphere makes a difference and we increasingly want it to be all-consuming. Let s Go Out Again is an eclectic showcase of atmospheric eating spaces from around the world from New York, London, and Berlin to Haifa, Sydney, and Hong Kong. The featured projects represent state-of-the-art collaborations among architects, artists, designers, restaurateurs, and chefs that target not only all of our senses, but our identities and values too. Whether clean sculptural lines, mirrored facades, old industrial fittings, or cozy retro furnishings, Let s Go Out Again shows how interior designers combine at times unusual ingredients to arrive at a tasteful setting for a range of culinary tastes and occasions. The book is comprised of six chapters, each of which exemplifies an aesthetic and conceptual point of view: Understatement, Modern Musings, Rough and Local, Progressive, Graphic Spaces, and Dramatic. Each of these approaches goes beyond the visual to buoy and amplify the philosophies of the kitchens or bars that they help define. The result is a congenial synergy between flavor and atmosphere, place and taste.

Описание: Animal Earth is an unbiased tour of the animal kingdom in all its staggering diversity. Animals that most easily spring to mind the tigers, elephants, eagles and crocodiles, or perhaps amphibians, fish and even humans account for only a tiny proportion of known species. Whats more, there are estimated to be many tens of millions still unknown to science. Animal Earth highlights the bizarre appearances, hidden lives and mostly small scale of the creatures we share our planet with. The bewildering number of animal species are all offshoots from a relatively small number of lineages, all sharing a common body plan and evolutionary history. This book provides a broadly equal summary of each of these lineages, and is structured according to the latest research on the evolutionary relationships of the animals. How they all fit on the tree of life is a topic that has been debated for decades, not least because new species are being discovered and described all the time and some lesser-known lineages, such as Chaetognatha (arrow worms) and Xenoturbellida (strange worms) continue to defy classification. As humans, we are in a uniquely privileged position as the only species that can appreciate and marvel at our fellow animals. But, as this book makes plain, we are very far from being above nature we are utterly dependent on it. Every species is an integral component of the ecosystem we live in, and as intelligent beings it is our duty to protect and understand animal diversity not only for its own sake but also to maintain the natural systems that keep us and everything else alive.
