Book Description: OXBOW BOOKS, 2013. 162 pages. The destruction of Pompeii in ad 79 provides a unique opportunity to explore the use of everyday items. It allows us to identify the source and variety of products available within the city, and enables us to track changes in the consumption of goods over time. In this volume, Jaye McKenzie-Clark presents the far-reaching results of her examination of the red slip tableware within three regions of the city. It pinpoints the initial supply and use of Vesuvian Sigillata, and investigates factors that may have led to the popularity of this style of pottery. The investigation maps the on-going manufacture of these ceramics and identifies changes in production and consumption up to the time of the eruption. Examination of the distribution within contexts of different social use also reveals distinct patterns of consumer demands and consumption within Pompeian society. Such research helps us to explore and understand the use of goods within the city of Pompeii and throughout the Roman world, and also has the potential to shed light on patterns of behaviour in modern consumer societies.

Book Description: SCHEIDEGGER & SPIESS PUBLISHERS, 2013. 800 pages. The Zumthor monograph will indeed be published by Scheidegger & Spiess and is scheduled for release in September 2013. It is going to be a 5-vols set (in slipcase), 800 pages in total, more than 600 illustrations, 24 x 30 cm. About the Author, Thomas Durisch is an architect who worked at Peter Zumthor’s studio from 1990–94, and has owned his own firm in Zürich since 1995. He was curator of the exhibition Peter Zumthor: Bauten und Projekte 1986–2007 at Kunsthaus Bregenz in 2007. Unquestionably one of the most influential and revered contemporary architects, Peter Zumthor has approached his work with a singular clarity of vision and a strong sense of his own philosophy, both of which have earned him the admiration of his peers and the world at large. Choosing to only take on a few projects at a time and keep his studio small, Zumthor has produced a comparatively few number of realized buildings, but they rank among the world’s most stunning: St. Benedict’s Chapel in Sumvitg, Switzerland; Therme Vals in Vals, Switzerland; Kunsthaus Bregenz in Bregenz, Austria; and the Kolumba Art Museum in Cologne, Germany number among his most famous buildings. This collection, however, explores his entire body of award-winning work from 1986 to 2012 in five volumes, including his lesser-known but nonetheless critically acclaimed works such as the Field Chapel for Brother Klaus near Mechernich, Germany, and the Steilneset. Memorial for the Victims of the Witch Trials in Vardø, Norway. Peter Zumthor presents around forty of his projects, both realized and unrealized, through Zumthor’s own writing, and with photographs, sketches, drawings, and plans. A complete catalog of his works starting in 1979 rounds out the book. Richly illustrated and beautifully designed, this book serves as both an introduction to Zumthor’s work and philosophy for the layperson and a required addition to any architect’s library.

Book Description: OXBOW BOOKS, 2013. 454 pages. One of the greatest consequences of Rome's expansion across the Mediterranean world in the course of the Republic and the earliest years of the Empire was an exponential growth in the population and extent of the city itself. The emperors of the first three centuries ad faced major strategic challenges in ensuring a regular annual supply of food to the city, as well as other goods. This volume brings together various contributions, to assess how far Portus, as the maritime port of Imperial Rome from the mid-first century ad, was the principal conduit for supplying Rome and the extent to which the commercial links that fed Portus were part of a single overarching network or a series of interlinked networks that extended across the Mediterranean. The volume begins with a detailed reconsideration of Portus and its relationship to Ostia and Rome, which is complemented by studies considering aspects of the commercial roles of Portus and Ostia, and of transport up the Tiber to Rome. It continues with studies that deal with a range of broader issues concerning the relationship of Mediterranean ports to Rome, Portus and Ostia, routes of commerce, and the archaeological evidence for commercial activity at a selection of ports (in Italy, Sicily, Hispaniae, Africa and the East); before returning to more general considerations of connectivity, networks, coastal geo-archaeology and computational methods.

Book Description: THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO PRESS, 1998. 190 pages. "Churchman or merchant, soldier or sanitary engineer, everyone who lives in a city sees it differently. Envisioning the City explores how these points of urban view have been expressed in city plans. Ranging from vertical plans to bird's-eye views, profiles, and three-dimensional models, these diverse maps all show cities "the way people want to see them." Whether a Chinese vertical city plan from the first millennium B.C. or a bird's-eye view appended to a fifteenth-century edition of Ptolemy's Geography, the type of plan chosen and its focus reflected the aspects of a city that the map's creators wished to highlight. For instance, maps of seventeenth-century cities emphasized impregnable fortifications as a deterrent to potential attackers. And Daniel Burnham's famous 1909 Plan of Chicago used a distinct representational style to "sell" his version of the new Chicago. Although city plans are among the oldest maps known, few books have been devoted to them. Historians of cartography and geography, architects, and urban planners will all enjoy this profusely illustrated volume. ". Bookseller Inventory # 978-0-226-07993-6

Book Description: UNIVERSITY OF PENNSYLVANIA PRESS, 2012. 408 pages. The materials that decorate our homes and protect us from cold, light, and prying eyes reveal as well as conceal. Drapery and curtain designs tell the story of great shifts in home and work life that accompanied innovations in textile manufacturing technology and the fashion industry over the course of the nineteenth century. Capricious Fancy chronicles the changes in fashionable curtain and drapery styles in the United States and Europe during the Industrial Revolution. This unique compilation contains hundreds of illustrations, most in full color, reproduced from more than one hundred rare pattern books, workroom manuals, trade catalogues, and examples of design literature selected from the collections of The Athenoum of Philadelphia, including the Samuel J. Dornsife Collection of The Victorian Society in America. Each design is annotated with a description of its source and significance. Gail Caskey Winkler's research confirms the mastery of French upholsterers in the art of draping windows, bedsteads, and doorways. The book follows the transmission of high styles from Paris to London to North America before the middle of the nineteenth century and the development of the retail home fashion business, including the mail-order trade. Even as wealth spread, disparity continued between the upper and middle classes in adopting the newest fashions. Meanwhile, the audience for interior fashion publications switched from male building professionals and artisans to female homemakers. With 325 images and historical commentary from a leading educator and historic preservation practitioner, Capricious Fancy is a source of authentic inspiration for preservation professionals, interior designers, set designers, museum curators, and anyone with a passion for period decor.

Book Description: ELECTA, 2012. 352 pages. Architecture in times of economic crisis, through the works of the mega-stars of the architectural sphere but also through productive recovery and transformation, interpreted in a fair, ecologically sustainable way. For the Italy Pavilion at the 13th International Architecture Exhibition, organized by the Venice Biennale, architect and town-planner Luca Zevi has chosen to focus on the example of Adriano Olivetti, and his way of rooting productive growth in the culture of the country, as the key of interpretation. The catalog concentrates on four seasons of Italian production: the legacy of Adriano Olivetti’s thinking, the season of ‘individual subjectivity’ which followed industrialization, the decentralization of production to locally-based enterprise and current Italian architecture (with more than 100 charts focusing on Italian businesses which, through their achievements, have interpreted entrepreneurial responsibility in an innovative way, from Ferrari at Maranello to the Kilometro Rosso near Bergamo, from the Prada factories to the Guzzini workshops). And, finally, the shift towards green economy, with the Italy Pavilion prepared for the first time in an ecologically sustainable way, run on energy generated by the sun, water and the pedaling skills of its visitors, a prototype of possible architecture based on landscape, the environment and production.

Book Description: VERSO LONDON, 2013. 320 pages. "Hal Foster, author of the acclaimed Design and Crime, argues that a fusion of architecture and art is a defining feature of contemporary culture. While architects such as Zaha Hadid and Herzog & de Meuron draw on art to reanimate design, architecture has inspired fundamental transformations in painting, sculpture and film, subjects which are also explored here. The book includes an extensive conversation with Richard Serra. At the same time, Foster delineates a "global style" of architecture, as practiced by Norman Foster, Richard Rogers and Renzo Piano, analogous to the "international style" of Le Corbusier, Gropius and Mies. More than any art, today's global style conveys the look of modernity, both its dreams and its delusions. In these ways Foster demonstrates that the "art-architecture complex" is a key indicator of broader social and economic trajectories and in urgent need of analysis and debate. ".

Book Description: SKIRA, 2008. Book Condition: AS NEW. COMO NUEVO. 288 pages. "Il catalogo, realizzato in occasione della prestigiosa mostra organizzata nella duplice sede di Milano e Sondrio, illustra, attraverso un ricco apparato iconografico e testi di valenza scientifica, la produzione di Pietro Ligari e dei figli Cesare e Vittoria analizzandola anche in rapporto con il contesto ove essi hanno svolto la loro attività artistica. I Ligari prendono nome dall'omonima contrada posta nel territorio comunale di Sondrio. Il capostipite, Giovan Pietro, detto appunto "il Ligari", nasce da famiglia agiata nel 1686. Dodicenne viene mandato a studiare a Roma a bottega da Lazzaro Baldi, seguace di Pietro da Cortona. Da qui si trasferisce in diverse città dell'Italia centrale e a Venezia per stabilirsi poi a Milano e infine in Valtellina. La sua produzione, improntata ad una personale declinazione del classicismo arricchito da slanci coloristici, è presente in molte città e tocca tutti i temi del sacro (famosissimo il suo Battesimo della Principessa indiana), del ritratto e dei temi profani. Personalità eclettica, Pietro è anche architetto, progettista di arredi liturgici, agronomo ed anche inventore di originalissimi orologi. Cesare, oltre che allievo del padre, fu a Venezia scolaro di Giambattista Pittoni e del Piazzetta. Tornato in patria lavorò per una committenza diversificata, religiosa e privata. La sua pittura non venne sempre apprezzata dai suoi conterranei, ancora legati al classicismo del padre. Così Cesare, importante artista del Settecento lombardo, finì i suoi giorni in povertà nel comasco dove cercava quella fortuna che la sua terra gli negava. Legata al padre e poi al fratello, Vittoria, quando può agire in autonomia, offre prove di notevole livello, sia che si tratti di dipingere soavi Madonne sia quando le vengono commissionate grandi pale d'altare. Alla produzione di Pietro e dei figli Cesare e Vittoria saranno affiancate opere di altri protagonisti del Settecento lombardo e veneto, ambiti nei quali operò la celebre famiglia di artisti valtellinesi. Completano il volume gli itinerari sul territorio valtellinese e non solo, che condurranno il visitatore a scoprire e ammirare l'amplissima produzione ligariana ad affresco.

Book Description: LARS MULLER, 2011. 240 pages. Five North American Architects - An Anthology brings together five architectural practices which, while all distinct, share a particularly sensitive feeling for the impact of craftsmanship and climate on the generation of form, as well as an equally shared concern for the expressive tactility of material and the articulation of structure under the impact of light. The book is an in depth survey of recent work by Steven Holl (New York), Rick Joy (Tucson), John and Patricia Patkau (Vancouver), Stanley Saitowitz (San Francisco), and Brigitte Shim and Howard Sutcliffe (Toronto). The regional specificity of the work is considered against a larger North American context, allowing one to assess the practice of architecture across the continent today.

Book Description: RIZZOLI, 2003. 0 pages. This groundbreaking, comprehensive survey of workplace architecture of the new century captures emerging themes and ideas in office design from around the world.

Book Description: AXEL MENGES, 2012. 280 pages. José Rafael Moneo, born in 1937 in Tudela, Navarra,obtained his architectural degree in 1961 from the ETSAM (Escuela Técnica Superior de Arquitectura de Madrid). While still a student,he worked with Francisco Javier Sáenz de Oiza. When he had completed his degree, he went to Hellebæck, Denmark, to work with Jørn Utzon,»whom I saw«, says Moneo, »as the legitimate heir of the masters of the heroic period«. From 1984 to 1990 Moneo was chairman of the architecture department of the Harvard University Graduate School of Design. Moneo has won gold medals from the French Academy of Architecture and the International Union of Architects, the Arnold W. Brunner Memorial Prize from the American Academy of Arts and Letters, and the Spanish government’s highest honor, the Gold Medal for Achievement in the Arts. In 1996 he won the Pritzker Prize in architecture, and in 2003 he accepted the British Royal Medal of Architecture. Mohsen Mostafavi, chairman of the Architectural Association, noted that Moneo »is the closest embodiment we have of the idea of the Renaissance architect – practitioner, teacher, theorist, critic, deeply knowledgeable on the arts. His work does not just delight the eye, but always provokes thinking.« In Spain his mark is seen everywhere – from the airport in Seville to the high-speed-train station in Madrid, the National Bank of Spain and the Museo del Prado. These projects represent the best of Spanish efforts to build a 21st-century public infrastructure. They also exemplify Moneo’s devotion to the culture and architectural history of his native land, showing a clearly contemporary voice with a refined sensitivity to site and context. Outside Spain, Moneo’s most notable projects– the Davis Museum and Cultural Center at Wellesley, Massachusetts, the Audrey Jones Beck Building at the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston, Texas, the New Studios Building at the Cranbrook Academy of Art in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, the Museum of Modern Art and Architecture in Stockholm, and the Arenberg Campus Library of the Catholic University of Leuven in Louvain-la-Neuve – have attracted much attention. The new Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels in Los Angeles has drawn more than one million visitors in the first year it opened. Juan Antonio Cortés has a doctorate in architecture from the ETSAM and is professor of architectural composition at the ETSAV (Escuela Técnica Superior de Arquitectura de Valladolid). He is a usual collaborator to prestigious magazines and publications such as EL Croquis. Bookseller Inventory # 978-3-936681-56-7

Book Description: ROYAL ACADEMY OF ARTS, 2011. Book Condition: AS NEW. COMO NUEVO. 288 pages. This fascinating book charts the dazzling trajectory of Russian avant-garde architecture during the brief but intense period of design and construction that took place from c. 1922 to 1935. Fired by the radical new language of Constructivist artists, such architects as Konstantin Melnikov, Moisei Ginzburg, and the Vesnin brothers produced designs whose innovative style embodied the energy and optimism of the new Soviet Socialist state. Streamlined, flat-roofed, and white-walled, their extraordinarily novel buildings must have seemed like alien forms. Architectural photographer Richard Pare has spent the last 15 years documenting the remains and ruins of these structures. Here, his spectacular photographs are juxtaposed with vintage images, ephemera, and drawings and paintings by artists such as Malevich, Tatlin, Popova, and Lissitzky.

Book Description: MUSEUM OF MODERN ART, 2013. 168 pages. "Van Gogh, Dali, and Beyond: The World Reimagined" is an exploration of the myriad innovative ways modern artists have reinvented the traditional genres of portrait, still life, and landscape from the 1880s to today. By looking closely at works in a range of media, the catalogue shows how these long-established categories have expanded and transformed from Post-Impressionism to Photorealism, reflecting changes in our conceptions of individuals, objects, and spaces. The selection of works range from Frida Kahlo's confident self-representation to Gerhard Richter's blurred likeness; from Paul Cezanne's iconic tabletop arrangements to Jeff Koons' commodified objects; from Vincent van Gogh's roiling olive trees to Richard Long's land art, each demonstrating how modernism's radical new forms have continuously revitalized art history's conventional subjects. An introductory text reflects on how these artists both inherit and reject the traditions of their adopted genres, and three essays provide close readings of a key portrait (Henri de Toulouse Lautrec's "La Goulue at the Moulin Rouge"), still-life (Paul Cezanne's "Still Life with Ginger Jar," "Sugar Bowl" and "Oranges"), and landscape (Van Gogh's "The Olive Trees") from the dawn of modernism, and expand to consider subsequent works. "Van Gogh, Dali, and Beyond "is published in conjunction with the second major exhibition The Museum of Modern Art is organizing for the Art Gallery of Western Australia, Perth.".

Book Description: 5 CONTINENTS EDITIONS, 2012. 360 pages. An elegant 17th-century house on Cuenca Street in the historic centre of Quito, long known as the Casa del Alabado (the House of Praise), is today an important museum of the same name. The Casa del Alabado Museum conserves some 5,000 archaeological objects created by the ancient people who occupied the territory known today as Ecuador; a finely honed selection of 500 pieces makes up the museum's permanent exhibition. Here, through superb photographs and expert texts, this book brings the unique collection of Pr-Columbian art to a wider public, explaining the worldview and philosophy of indigenous Americans, in particular the importance of preserving life by maintaining the flow of cosmic energy and spiritual communication between the distinct worlds that made up their universe. The objects themselves, amazing in their aesthetic and technical excellence, are masterworks created by ancient artists in a range of raw materials. Bookseller Inventory # 978-88-7439-596-5
