This latest volume in the The New Classicists series features the work of renowned architect Marc Appleton and his Santa Barbara, Los Angeles, firm, Appleton & Associates, which has established a reputation for designing some of the country's most beautiful residences. Unlike many architects who strive to attract media attention by creating 'signature' designs that make instant headlines, Appleton and his firm prefer that their houses retain a certain understated sophistication, and as a result, design homes that look like they have evolved from the landscape rather than intrude upon it. Appleton & Associates Architects features a selection of projects by the firm, including a working olive ranch in California, a grand estate in Los Angeles inspired by a Renaissance Tuscan-style villa, a quintessential 'Hollywood' house that includes a glamorous pool pavilion and of course a superb staircase to make the all-important entrance, and a writer's pavilion in Connecticut that would charm any writer.

Artistic Interiors is an extraordinary volume featuring the work of prestigious architectural interior designer Suzanne Lovell. Hundreds of full color photographs feature her unique approach toward designing couture environments that create an expressive home through the integration of architecture, sophisticated materials, and fine art. Exploring more than a dozen residences, Lovell takes the reader on a journey through homes with sumptuous interiors, finely crafted details, and exceptional collections. A lifestyle architect practicing at the intersection of architecture and interiors, design and art, Lovell's work incorporates an expansive array of paintings, drawings, and photography, ceramics and sculpture, textiles, custom furnishings, and antiques. Suzanne Lovell is the go-to designer for the passionate collector and Artistic Interiors offers a glimpse into her distinct design process through striking images of her work. Praise for Artistic Interiors: “For Suzanne Lovell, a well-designed room serves as a frame for the art it displays. In more than twelve featured projects, Lovell tailors her aesthetic to highlight her clients’ collections, resulting in graceful, harmonious spaces that are enhanced with works by Kara Walker, Vik Muniz, and Henri Matisse, among others.” —Architectural Digest “Perfect for gift giving; the holidays fast approach.” —Ebony “An instant education in how art and furniture can live in harmony.” —Chicago magazine “This book will have a special appeal to those looking for a sophisticated point of view in Midwestern abodes.” —Library Journal !--StartFragment-- “Although unmistakably modern, Suzanne Lovell’s carefully detailed style has a classic quality, frequently incorporating antiques as well as furniture by early-twentieth-century luminaries. She displays whimsical folk art with as much sophistication and integrity as highly important works by celebrated artists, past and present, and the book’s text is adept at explaining the thinking behind her designing.” —House & Garden (UK) “The book—beautifully designed by Doug Turshen, with David Huang, using the work of a handful of photographers led by Tony Soluri—makes her mastery of dimension, volume, material, form, color, scale, period, and detail exceptionally vivid.” —1stDibs.com “A sumptuous new volume by celebrated architect-designer Suzanne Lovell. Lovell offers intimate access to fourteen couture environments in which she has temptingly integrated architecture, materials, fine art, and the client's ‘soul and sensibility.’”—Private Clubs

Research outside Japan on the history and significance of the Japanese visual arts since the beginning of the Meiji period (1868) has been, with the exception of writings on modern and contemporary woodblock prints, a relatively unexplored area of inquiry. In recent years, however, the subject has begun to attract wide interest. As is evident from this volume, this period of roughly a century and a half produced an outpouring of art created in a bewildering number of genres and spanning a wide range of aims and accomplishments. Since Meiji is the first sustained effort in English to discuss in any depth a time when Japan, eager to join in the larger cultural developments in Europe and the U.S., went through a visual revolution. Indeed, this study of the visual arts of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries suggests a fresh history of modern Japanese culture—one that until now has not been widely visible or thoroughly analyzed outside that country. In this extensive collection, which includes some 190 black-and-white and color reproductions, scholars from Japan, Europe, Australia, and America explore an impressive array of subjects: painting, sculpture, prints, fashion design, crafts, and gardens. The works discussed range from early Meiji attempts to create art that referenced Western styles to postwar and contemporary avant-garde experiments. There are, in addition, substantive investigations of the cultural and intellectual background that helped stimulate the creation of new and shifting art forms, including essays on the invention of a modern artistic vocabulary in the Japanese language and the history of art criticism in Japan, as well as an extensive account of the career and significance of perhaps the best-known Japanese figure concerned with the visual arts of his period, Okakura Tenshin (1862–1913), whose Book of Tea is still widely read today. Taken together, the essays in this volume allow readers to connect ideas and images, thus bringing to light larger trends in the Japanese visual arts that have made possible the vitality, range, and striking achievements created during this turbulent and lively period.

Global City Blues

Global City Blues

"This is a book about the making of cities and the buildings that compose them.

Author: Daniel Solomon

Publisher: Island Press

ISBN: 1559631848

Category: Architecture

Page: 253

"This is a book about the making of cities and the buildings that compose them. It is about the conditions under which an architect engaged in those activities now works, how those conditions evolved and why they are changing. It is about the qualities of life that are threatened by the ways cities are built at the beginning of the 21st century and intelligent response to those threats. It is about why the city planning ideas and the cultural cuisinart that came in the box with modern architecture are a lingering menace." -- from Global City Blue. Much of the architecture and town planning of the past fifty years has been based on an unsubstantiated optimism about the promise of modernity. In our rush to embrace the future, we invented new ways of building that rejected the past and sent people headlong into a placeless limbo where they are insulated from each other and cut off from such basic experiences of location as the weather and the time of day. Despite calamitous results, many architects and planners remain enamored of the modernist ideals that underlie these changes. In Global City Blues, renowned architect Daniel Solomon presents a perceptive overview and an insightful assessment of how the power and seductiveness of modernist ideals led us astray. Through a series of independent but linked essays, he takes the reader on a personal picaresque, introducing us to people, places, and ideas that have shaped thinking about planning and building and that laid the foundation for his beliefs about the world we live in and the kind of world we should be making. As an alternative, Daniel Solomon discusses the ideas and precepts of New Urbanism, a reform movement he helped found that has risen to prominence in the past decade. New Urbanism offers a vital counterbalance to the forces of sprawl, urban disintegration, and placelessness that have so transformed the contemporary landscape. Global City Blues is a fresh and original look at what the history of urban form can teach us about creating built environments that work for people.

In 1914, celebrants marked the anniversary of the founding of Belleville, Illinois, by observing the progress the city had made since it was established a hundred years before. In that time, it had become a regional hub for surrounding communities, with robust commercial, manufacturing, coal-mining, and agricultural sectors. Over the next century, the automobile, wars, economic depression, and technological innovation transformed daily life in ways unimaginable to those citizens of 1914. Bellevilleans civic volunteerism would serve the city well as Belleville approached its bicentennial. In 2011, the National Civic League designated it an All-American City."

This book stems from the seminal work of Robert Venturi and aims at re-projecting it in the current cultural debate by extending it to the scale of landscape and placing it in connection with representative issues. It brings out the transdisciplinary synthesis of a necessarily interdisciplinary approach to the theme, aimed at creating new models which are able to represent the complexity of a contradictory reality and to redefine the centrality of human dimension. As such, the volume gathers multiple experiences developed in different geographical areas, which come into connection with the role of representation. Composed of 43 chapters written by 81 authors from around the world, with an introduction by Jim Venturi and Cezar Nicolescu, the volume is divided into two parts, the first one more theoretical and the other one which showcases real-world applications, although there is never a total split between criticism and operational experimentation of research.
