Conceptual Architecture

225,75 zł Cena
As Sanford Kwinter once said, “Concepts are the architecture of hope.” In the modern world, conceptual architecture has only become possible due to modern man’s increasing tendency towards individualisation. Concepts, in contrast to theories, do not demand absoluteness or intellectual consensus, but rather allow for a playful and singular approach to designing and building. The works featured in Conceptual Architecture possess sensual and atmospheric qualities that can be attributed to a delicate handling of materials and details. Unlike much conceptual architecture, most of the projects in this book have been realized, a testament to the advances in construction techniques and materials that have enabled these high-concept projects to come to fruition.

Since the beginning of the housing boom of the 1950s, the size of the average North American house has steadily grown while the size of the average family has decreased. Today, a growing number of homebuyers seeking smaller, more efficient residential designs are rediscovering a centuries old housing prototype: the narrow house. Measuring twenty-five-feet wide or less, these "infill" or "skinny" houses, as they are often called, are on the rise in cities and suburbs around the world. The benefits of building small and narrow are numerous: greater land-use efficiency, less building material, fewer infrastructure costs, lower utility bills, and flexible layouts. This building type creates environmentally sensible houses that allow homeowners to live within their means. Narrow Houses presents a thorough overview of the practical considerations of designing a narrow-front home, including siting, floor arrangements, footprint, and interior and exterior finishing. The book documents twenty-eight innovative examples of narrow houses from around the world designed by today's foremost architects. Project data including floor plans and extensive interior and exterior photography demonstrate the inherent flexibility of this housing model and the many possibilities for adapting these homes to the constraints of site, climate, budget, family size, and other needs.

The secrets behind the work of chameleon designer Pierre Yves Rochon, who has devoted thirty years to the quest for "absolute comfort." Is there a signature Rochon style? At first, it is difficult to tell because the designer always adapts his work to the environment in which it unfolds, bringing out the location’s unique spirit. A great traveler, he blends international styles, borrowing from both modern and classical influences. Hailed as a "visionary designer" and "master of grand luxe" by the Financial Times’ How To Spend It, Rochon’s most prestigious commissions include Four Seasons Hotels—in Paris, Florence, Washington, Shanghai and Cairo, for example—and restaurants for several Michelin-starred chefs. His residential work includes sumptuous private homes he has designed across Europe, America, and the Middle East. This monograph—Rochon’s first—reveals the designer’s trademark approach to interior splendor. For him, "the quality of the object and the hand that made it," is essential for creating a sumptuous interior. He devotes attention to every detail, from the architecture, to the furniture, the lighting, the fabrics, and art objects. Where he inserts a new structure into a space, such as a fireplace or a column, it feels like it has always been there. His interiors thus exude harmony and comfort, while retaining a strong sense of the location’s culture, geography, and history.

Dostępność: na zamówienie "Grand Batik Interiors" unravels the historical trajectory of batik. It records batik's transformation from its traditional context into the world of modernity. It examines the way this cloth with its deeply embedded, multi-layered meanings has been re-created to become relevant to a modern lifestyle, including its use in the garment/fashion, and interior design industries. The book's mastermind, Joop Ave, was the first person to encourage Indonesian batik masters to venture out into interior design by commissioning them to create enlarged batik motif wall hangings. In the 1970s designers like Iwan Tirta, Ardiyanto and Harry Soeharyo, to name the pioneering individuals, responded to Joop Ave's call and were creating innovative and original batiks for interior design. By the 2000s, a new generation of batik designers had emerged, treading the path once opened by their seniors, and which led to the blossoming of a new local industry. The old pioneering masters, meanwhile, consolidated their works. The book examines the way that these designers have adapted batik motifs to silver, ceramic, wood and leather.
