Arcadian Architecture: Bohlin Cywinski Jackson - 12 Houses - Oscar Riera Ojeda

Rizzoli (RCS MediaGroup) / —
The architecture firm Bohlin Cywinski Jackson believes that “the sensuality of place, the emotive qualities of materials, and the ability to give pleasure and insight, to comfort and to transport can produce humane and spirited architecture.” Whether designing corporate headquarters for Pixar Animation Studios, the Software Engineering Institute for Carnegie Mellon University, the new Apple Stores in New York, Chicago, and Tokyo, or the twelve wooded retreats shown in this book, the firm’s architecture is alive to the subtleties of place, man-made or natural, and to the rich possibilities of materials and the means of construction.
The houses in Arcadian Architecture are exquisitely crafted of wood and stone and other natural materials, and are all sited within beautiful wooded, mountainous, or lakeside locales, from New York State to Washington State, and from the woods of Connecticut to the mountains of Montana. One of the highlights of this book is that it publishes, for the first time, the extraordinary, huge, extremely private and secluded, residential complex in Washington State that was built for Bill and Melinda Gates. Each house is presented on at least thirty pages, and is depicted by sumptuous new color photography, richly detailed conceptual sketches, presentation drawings, and construction documents.

Mark Seliger In My Stairwell - Mark Seliger

Rizzoli (RCS MediaGroup) / —
The stairwell of New York photographer Mark Seliger may be unadorned, decidedly offstage, and very small, but the creativity of so many talented people jammed into one space is enormous. Each artist, dancer, and writer brings a different personality to the room, and Seliger captures that spirit in each photograph. From Paul McCartney to Susan Sarandon, from Tom Wolfe to Lou Reed, all of the participants in this project demonstrate the greatest integrity and highest creativity in their crafts. Other memorable portraits include those of Tony Hawk, Richard Serra, Bill Irwin, Laurie Anderson, and Lenny Kravitz. All 75 photographs were printed with a turn-of-the-century platinum palladium photographic process, a procedure that results in a highly detailed, rich texture. The images are printed in tritone. Fred Woodward, the prominent New York designer of Rolling Stone and such ground-breaking books as Crazy, Sexy, Cool, is the mastermind behind the book’s cutting-edge design.

Radical Classicism: The Architecture of Quinlan Terry - David Watkin

Rizzoli (RCS MediaGroup) / —
Often described as Prince Charles’s favorite architect, Quinlan Terry is at home in every traditional style, from Classical Greek to Roman, Gothic to Renaissance, and Baroque to Neo-classical. With intense new interest in classical design, there is a high demand for a compilation of Terry’s work, a volume that showcases the ideas and creations of one of the world’s most daring traditionalist designers. At the pinnacle of his career — this year’s winner of the Driehaus Prize, classical architecture’s highest honor — Quinlan Terry is one of the most celebrated practitioners of the form and also perhaps the most radical. Radical Classicism contains hundreds of lavish color illustrations and thirty of Terry’s designs, including state rooms at #10 Downing Street, a library and residential building at Cambridge University, a cathedral in Essex, a church in Bishopsgate, four buildings in Williamsburg, Va., townhouses in London, and ten large country houses in England, Germany, and the U.S. Buildings featured include Juniper Hill in Buckinghamshire; Ionic Villa, Corinthian Villa, and Regency Villa in Regents Park, London; Abercrombie House in Kentucky; Latourette Farm, New Jersey; Highland Park House, Dallas, Texas.

Louise Brooks - Peter Cowie

Rizzoli (RCS MediaGroup) / —
Louise Brooks has become one of the most spectacular icons of early cinema. Her distinctive «bob» haircut looks as modern as they did when she first appeared in films in 1925. Louise Brooks was born on November 14, 1906 in Cherryvale, Kansas, and by eighteen had established herself as a dancer with the Ziegfeld Follies, and was receiving film offers from both MGM and Paramount. In 1928, she starred in William Wellman’s Beggars of Life. Meanwhile she was mingling with the high and mighty of Hollywood, having a passionate affair with Charlie Chaplin, spending weekends at William Randolph Hearst’s castle and captivating such men as William S. Paley, the founder of CBS. Her brief, yet spectacular role in Howard Hawks’ A Girl in Every Port impressed G.W. Pabst, the German maestro who was seeking an actress for his upcoming production, Pandora’s Box. He rejected Marlene Dietrich in favor of Brooks, who went to Berlin and made not only Pandora’s Box but also Diary of a Lost Girl, forever ensuring her status as a screen icon.This exquisitely produced album celebrates Lulu with rare film footage stills, private photos, letters, interviews, and text by renowned film critic Peter Cowie, exploring this influential cult figure and abiding symbol of the Jazz Age.
