The Art of Ruskin and the Spirit of Place

The Art of Ruskin and the Spirit of Place

English art critic John Ruskin was one of the great visionaries of his time, and his influential books and letters on the power of art challenged the foundations of Victorian life. He loved looking. Sometimes it informed the things he wrote, but often it provided access to the many topographical and cultural topics he explored—rocks, plants, birds, Turner, Venice, the Alps. In The Art of Ruskin and the Spirit of Place, John Dixon Hunt focuses for the first time on what Ruskin drew, rather than wrote, offering a new perspective on Ruskin’s visual imagination. Through analysis of more than 150 drawings and sketches, many reproduced here, he shows how Ruskin’s art shaped his writings, his thoughts, and his sense of place.

Lose yourself in the definitive collection of glorious travel sketches by our century's best loved voyager and real-life family member of The Durrells in Corfu. 'Depicts the brio of Durrell's existence with intoxicating vividness.' New York Times 'Much more than just a chronicle of his travels ... Reveals Durrell's honesty, outspokenness, warmth, and extreme sensitivity to people and to the beauty of nature ... Unusual and fascinating.' Library Journal 'Excellent, vigorous, exciting, unselfconscious, with a lively, original vocabulary ... Shot through with strength and vitality.' TLS From the moment of his birth, Lawrence Durrell was far from home. A British child in India, he was sent to England to receive an education, and by his early twenties had already tired of his native land. With family in tow, he departed for Greece, and spent the rest of his life wandering the world. He traveled not to sight-see but to live, and made homes in Egypt, France, Yugoslavia, and Argentina. Each time he landed, he rooted himself deep into the native soil, taking in not just the sights and sounds of his new land, but the essential character of the country. In this definitive collection of glorious letters and essays, Durrell exhibits the power of poetic observation that made his travel writing so extraordinary.

Spirit and Place

This book's unique arguments identify important, but often unrecognised, principles and illustrate their applicability in a wide range of situations, price-ranges and climates.

Built environment surrounds us for 90% of our lives but only now are we realising its influence on the environment, our health, and how we think, feel and behave both individually and socially. Spirit & Place shows how to work towards a sustainable environment through socially inclusive processes of placemaking, and how to create places that are nourishing psychologically and physically, to soul and spirit as well as body. This book's unique arguments identify important, but often unrecognised, principles and illustrate their applicability in a wide range of situations, price-ranges and climates. It shows how to reconcile the apparently incompatible demands of environmental, economic and social sustainability; how to moderate climate to make places of delight, and realign social pressures so places both support society and maximise economic viability. Thought provoking and easy to understand, Christopher Day uses everyday examples to relate his theories to practice and our experience.

Spirit of Place is the first monograph on the work of Chad Oppenheim and his firm, Oppenheim Architectecture, and features seven of the award-winning firm’s projects, with a focus on how the architectural design honors the natural elements of each site. Oppenheim Architecture’s first monograph, Spirit of Place, explores seven of the architectural firm’s acclaimed projects, located in beautiful settings across the globe. The book includes 120 stunning photographs and minimal text. The projects presented range in scale and location from homes in the Bahamas and Aspen to a resort in the Jordanian desert. The images, like the architecture, focus on and celebrate the natural world, illustrating Chad Oppenheim’s design philosophy that “form follows feeling.” Through passion and sensitivity towards man and nature, the firm designs monumental yet silent work that invokes a site’s inherent power. “For thousands of years, civilization has constructed its buildings on the land. We prefer to construct our buildings with the land, where architecture recedes and becomes a frame,” writes Chad Oppenheim. The projects are categorized by each site’s predominant natural element: dune, desert, stream, river, sea, canyon, and peninsula. The volume includes text by Chad Oppenheim, Val K. Warke, Antón García-Abril, and Mark Jarzombek. The Collector’s Edition of Spirit of Place maximizes the viewer’s engagement with the sites. The book’s unique format includes extra-thick pages and a lay flat binding, allowing the book to open fully. The white-on-white cover, white book sleeve, and white hard-shell slipcase emphasize that the focus is on the natural world conveyed through the images. This book will appeal to readers interested in architecture, photography, nature, sustainability, and the environment.
