James Steele — Ecological Architecture. A Critical History, 2005 год

Ecological Architecture. A Critical History - James Steele

Thames & Hudson / —
The ecological approach to building is the great untold story in the architectural history of the past century. This book is essential reading for architects and students. As an urgent wake-up call on the state of our built environment, it will be of interest to everyone who cares about the future of our planet.
In the past, many of the key tenets of the ecological philosophy — sustainability, energy efficiency, harmonious relationship with the environment – appeared to stand contrast to the sweep of science-led ‘progress’ that characterized the modern movement. Today, however, past visionaries are vindicated and yesterday’s eccentricities are today’s legal requirements: every architect has an obligation to the environment as well as to his or her client.
After an introduction to the terminology of ecological architecture — including terms such as ‘green’ and ‘sustainable’,
Part one identifies recurring themes in ecological architecture. Part two features twenty-five case studies each focusing on a specific architect, movement or topic. Some of the names are familiar in this context — Rasem Badran, Hassan Fathy — but there are also plenty of surprises — Le Corbusier, Buckminster Fuller, Rudolf Schindler. Part three looks to the future as ecological architecture struggles to deal with global urbanization.

Tim Clayton — Hogarth, 2007 год

Hogarth - Tim Clayton

Thames & Hudson / —
William Hogarth (1697-1764) is an artist whose popularity has never waned since his own day. He has been characterized variously as a witty satirist, stern moralist, aggressive self-promoter, detached observer, and man of the people. His celebrated patriotism and ‘Britishness’ were shaped, paradoxically, by the remarkably cosmopolitan character of the artistic environment in which he lived. His distinctive urban and political themes reflect the concerns of an increasingly metropolitan society. Hogarth’s contribution to the development of modern British art was unique and his influence has been enormous, his multi-faceted output ranging from elegant conversation pieces to salacious brothel scenes. His reputation has been based almost entirely on his numerous prints and engraved works, including famous series such as «A Rake’s Progress», «A Harlot’s Progress», «Marriage A-la-Mode», «Industry and Idleness», «Gin Lane», «Beer Street» and the «Four Stages of Cruelty». This attractive book reproduces a selection from these and other representative prints, introduced by a brief overview of the artist and his times.

Neoclassicism in the North: Swedish Furniture and Interiors 1770-1850 - Hakan Groth

Thames & Hudson / —
When Crown Prince Gustaf returned from Versailles in 1771 to ascend the throne of Sweden, he was determined to give his country a leading place in Europe culturally as well as politically. He fostered the international movement of Neoclassicism, which in Sweden took on a freshness distinctive to the country, alongside the influences of France, England and Germany.
Neoclassicism in the North presents twenty houses and apartments in marvellously evocative, specially commissioned photographs, alongside plans and original drawings. From royal salons with exquisite Pompeian ornament to modest spatter-painted Biedermeier halls, the beautiful Neoclassical houses of Sweden are of unique value today not only because of their superb craftsmanship but also as a stimulus to contemporary decorators.
