Founded in 2006, Rafael de Cardenas's firm Architecture at Large was created after a roundabout route to architecture. His experience as a menswear designer at Calvin Klein and a creative director at the special-effects production house Imaginary Forces led him to study architecture and blend his multidisciplinary background to create spaces that are artful and highly conceptual. He is known for his bold and eye-popping projects spanning commercial and residential interiors, art objects and furniture, and pop-ups. With thematically organised chapters dedicated to his most inspirational projects and a decade of his work in vivid detail, this book is a must-have for those interested in modern spaces. From highly sculptural and geometric commercial interiors to the most sophisticated homes in Manhattan, de Cardenas and his firm infuse their work with an energetic spirit that is less about a particular style than about a mood. The book includes stunning photography alongside three insightful essays by some of the leading authorities on style and interior design.

This publication traces the curatorial methodology behind the Museum of Arts and Design (MAD)'s institution-wide exhibition, NYC Makers: The 2014 MAD Biennial. Marking a new chapter for the Museum, NYC Makers surveys the work of approximately 100 twenty-first-century makers who have flattened traditional hierarchies and escaped rigid categories of production through post-disciplinary practices as well as innovative application of skill and technique. From world-renowned cultural leaders to emergent enfants terribles, those included demonstrate the highest level of skill in their respective field, whether by fabricating furniture or fashion, creating artworks, cinema and architecture, inventing new possibilities for food, or reshaping educational and social gatherings. Marking a unique moment in time as the museum and the city are reshaped by the cultural production of these inventive individuals living and working within a single city, this publication acts as a process book for NYC Makers: The MAD Biennial by combining analysis and comments on culture within New York, transparent documentation of the curatorial process, as well as plates from the 100 makers in the exhibition.

What began as a small mining camp during the Colorado Silver Boom of the late nineteenth century has since become the preferred getaway of the world's elite. Treasured for what's above ground rather than below, Aspen, Colorado has a storied history almost as dense as the directory of A-listers who have adopted the jewel of Pitkin County as their second home, or who have settled in its slopes indefinitely. With an introduction from longtime resident Aerin Lauder, Aspen celebrates and pays homage to the stark glamour, the working-class history, and the romance of the virtually untouched landscape that gives the town the unique charisma that continues to draw new devotees with each season. Exploring the rustic-chic atmosphere of the Hotel Jerome, the architectural excellence of Herbert Bayer's restored Wheeler Opera House, and local culture found at Schlomo's Deli & Grill, to name a few, this deluxe volume is brought to life with stunning current and historical imagery capturing the prodigious evolution of this mountain town over the last century.

In the Sixties, architect Horace Gifford executed a remarkable series of beach houses that transformed the terrain and culture of New York's Fire Island. Growing up on the beaches of Florida, Gifford forged a deep connection with coastal landscapes. Pairing this sensitivity with jazzy improvisations on modernist themes, he perfected a sustainable modernism in cedar and glass that was as attuned to natural landscapes as to our animal natures. Gifford's serene 1960s pavilions provided refuge from a hostile world, while his exuberant post-Stonewall, pre-AIDS masterpieces orchestrated bacchanals of liberation. Celebrities lived in modestly scaled homes alongside middle-class vacationers, all with equal access to Fire Island's natural beauty. Blending cultural and architectural history, this book ponders a fascinating era through an overlooked architect whose life, work and colorful milieu trace the operatic arc of a lost generation, and still resonate with artistic and historical import.

The first and only monograph to celebrate Ward Bennett, the leading American interior and furniture designer. Ward Bennett (1917-2003) was a leading American designer whose career spanned more than five decades. Born in New York, he left home at thirteen and got his start in the city's garment district. He eventually left the fashion world and began to reinvent himself as the Ward Bennett we know today: designing architecture, interiors, furniture, textiles, and objects, all with his vision for simple form paired with elegant materials. His reputation earned him some of the day's most affluent clients: David Rockefeller and Chase Manhattan Bank, Gianni and Marella Agnelli, Tiffany & Co., and Rolling Stone magazine cofounders and publishers Jann and Jane Wenner, among others. Even after his death, his signature rich minimalism continues to be recognized and awarded. This, the first and only comprehensive monograph covering Bennett’s career, brings to life his work through previously unpublished materials, including an interview with Bennett.

A House Is Not Just a House

Projects on Housing

Publisher: Gsapp Transcripts

A House Is Not Just a House argues precisely that. The book traces Tatiana Bilbao's diverse work on housing ranging from large-scale social projects to single-family luxury homes. These projects offer a way of thinking about the limits of housing: where it begins and where it ends. Regardless of type, her work advances an argument on housing that is simultaneously expansive and minimal, inseparable from the broader environment outside of it and predicated on the fundamental requirements of living. Working within the turbulent history of social housing in Mexico, Bilbao argues for participating even when circumstances are less than ideal--and from this participation she is able to propose specific strategies learned in Mexico for producing housing elsewhere. A House Is Not Just a House includes a recent lecture by Bilbao at Columbia University's Graduate School of Architecture, Planning, and Preservation, as well as reflections from fellow practitioners and scholars, including Amale Andraos, Gabriela Etchegaray, Hilary Sample, and Ivonne Santoyo-Orozco.

- Patrick Sutton is well known for his evocative, story-telling work- Sutton's projects, especially the Sagamore Pendry Hotel, have received wide recognition and numerous awardsBaltimore-based interior designer Patrick Sutton grew up touring the world with his travel journalist father and fashion model mother. The golden light of Rome, the colorful spices of Marrakesh, the polished marble floors of a Paris hotel: the young voyager developed a vivid visual library of the world's beautiful spaces. Following his love of design to a career in architecture and interiors, Sutton today draws upon this store of memories to craft unique designs intimately related to his clients and their dreams. Storied Interiors, Sutton's first book, offers glamorous presentations of 10 residences and four hotels and restaurants, including the award-winning Sagamore Pendry Hotel in Baltimore, but so much more. Each project is accompanied by the designer's narrative of a family, an historic estate, a restaurant. In addition, he details the eight design principles, from proportion and balance to the effect of different ceiling treatments, through which he translates this narrative, or story, into a complete, evocative interior. Contents: Finding Your Story; Crafting Your Story; The Happy Tension Between Invention and the Familiar; The Framework of Architecture; The Power of Proportion and Balance; Texture; Don't Forget to Look Up; The Push and Pull of Light and Dark; Details, Details, Details; The Art of Art; Stories I Have Told; 10 Residences; Creating Experiences: The World of Hospitality; 1 hotel, 3 restaurants.
