Описание: With Silicon Valley in the north and Hollywood in the south, California has become a magnet for creative and entrepreneurial types from within the United States and around the world. Architects have not been immune to the Golden State's aesthetic and cultural draw. Here, in the melting pot of world cultures and native talent, modern residential architecture has been reborn.
From the seaside towns of Los Angeles to the rolling hills of San Francisco and the wine country of the Napa and Sonoma Valleys, California's adventurous architects have reached back to the cultural and economic optimism of the 1950s to give modern architectural design a new look. With its mild climate and sun-filled days, California has always been a natural fit for modernism's tenets of open plans, indoor-outdoor living, and expansive window walls. There modernist design concepts have adapted easily to the 21st Century's demand for green architecture and energy conservation.
Many of the houses in California Cool are energy independent and built using either recycled or sustainable materials. California Cool includes contemporary work from some of modern architecture's progenitor's from the mid 20th century along with designs from the young practitioners of the 21st century, who can be found working out of converted warehouses and lofts in Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Berkeley. From north to south, this beautifully illustrated book captures the rich, creative vibrancy of California's modern architectural presence.

Наличие на складе: Есть (1 шт.) Описание: The ecologically inspired planning and innovative architecture created at The Sea Ranch in the mid-1960s caused a quiet revolution in architecture. When the region, a former sheep ranch and lumbering area, was rediscovered for its beauty in the 1960s, it was radically developed as a community that would exist in harmony with its environment. This revised and updated edition of the now-classic monograph contains ten additional projects without sacrificing any of the originally included, lavishly illustrated work. New projects include work by many of the same renowned architects. Also including an updated account of the ongoing development process and land management issues, the revision proves the continued relevance of The Sea Ranch as it enters its fiftieth year--and this monograph remains its definitive portrait.
