Описание: Timberland: The wooden structures of the 21st century Not so very long ago, some might have considered wood a material of the past, long since replaced by more modern components such as concrete and steel. The truth is radically different. Bolstered by new manufacturing techniques and ecological benefits, wood has seen afabulous resurgence in contemporary construction.This double-volume survey explores how architects around the world have created and invented with this elementary material. Featuringfollies, very large buildings, and ambitious urban renewal schemes, it celebrates the diverse deployment of wood from architects in China, Chile, and everywhere in between. We see how wood can at once transform urban spaces, as in theMetropol Parasol in Sevilleby Jurgen Mayer H, and allow for sensitive interventions in natural environments, as at theFinnish Forest Research Instituteby SARC Architects, or the Termas Geometricas Hot Springs Complexby German del Sol.True to all TASCHEN architecture tomes, the book pays tribute to many emerging international talents, as well as to such renowned figures as Tadao Ando to Renzo Piano. It celebrates each of these architect s vision and innovation, as well as investigating thetechniques, trends, and principlesthat have informed their work with wood. It examines the computer guided milling that has allowed for novel new forms, the responsible harvesting that allows wood to align with our environmental concerns, and, above all, wood s enduring appeal to our senses and our psyche, comforting hectic modern lives with a sense of Arcadian beauty and simplicity.

Название: Contemporary Villas ISBN: 0764337742 ISBN-13(EAN): 9780764337741 Издательство: Schiffer Цена: 6610 р. Наличие на складе: Есть (2 шт.) Описание: Explore over 40 contemporary villas by todays most creative architects. Their brilliant architectural designs integrate the built structure and natural environment in open countryside and urban spaces, realizing ideal places. Villas in deserts, mountains, and meadows, with seaside or lakeside vistas, and in urban locations are all revealed in informative text and 560 gorgeous color photos and plans. Using modern techniques and au courant design theories, these contemporary villas invite Nature to participate in the design process, treating light, for example, as a deliberate design element. All of these highly individualistic villas deftly blend form and function. Clean-lined interiors eschew ornamentation, placing emphasis on the exhilarating response to voluminous space inside and infinite space viewed through walls of glass that erase the boundary between interior and exterior. This response cannot be experienced in traditional architecture. Homeowners, architects, interior designers, and all who are fascinated by contemporary architecture, with its new regard for Nature as design partner, will treasure this book.

Описание: Twice Drawn brings together an eclectic range of drawings from the last half-century to explore the influence and vigor of this pervasive yet commonly overlooked practice. Providing a contextual depth often lost in large group surveys, this book begins with beautiful reproductions of two stand-out drawings each from over 50 artists. The book then mixes those drawings with hundreds more works that are thematically arranged by traditional genres and less conventional principles, offering alternative ways to examine relationships among style, contemporaneity, and chronology. Artists include mid-century stalwarts like Philip Guston and Ellsworth Kelly, established draftsmen such as Brice Marden and Lee Bontecou, and a younger generation of artists like Dawn Clements and Chris Ofili. In addition, the book focuses on the work of four artists: Lee Lozano, Ed Ruscha, Jim Shaw, and Susan Turcot.
