WILLIAM TURNBULL JR. | BUILDINGS IN LANDSCAPE

NZD$85 - RESERVE NOW


-------------------

Date of Edition: 2000
Pages: 250
Size: 335 x 260 mm
Publisher: William Stout
Text: English

This architectural monograph documents twenty of American architect William Turnbull's most well known and beautiful buildings and houses, ranging in scope from the Sea Ranch Condominium 1(1965), designed by Turnbull in collaboration with Charles Moore, Donlyn Lyndon, and Richard Whitaker (MLTW), to his own house in Napa Valley, CA (1991).

Turnbull's buildings are set into their landscape - each with a very relaxed feel - contrasting the work of his modernist peers. They are closely connected to the vernacular architecture of the everyday landscape.

Joseph Esherick was arguably the foremost San Francisco architect from the 1960s until his death in the late 1990s, following in the wake of William Wurster. Esherick established his own practice in the late 1940s and the firm produced a continuous stream of laudable buildings, among them houses appropriate to their site and times. Affected less by national and international fashion than by the exigencies of local climate, social demands, and suitable technology, Esherick produced a large number of truly classic residences.

Size: 180 x 135 mm
Publisher: William Stout
Text: English

Increasingly, technology seems to be de-materializing our world. Yet our ideas and experiences (both physical and cultural) remain fundamentally patterned by the complex material interplay of brain, body, and world. With support from pioneering research in the cognitive and neurosciences, Sarah Robinson combines philosophy, poetry, and personal narrative to offer a poignant study of the many ways in which our built environment shapes us as significantly as we have shaped it. Nesting: Body, Dwelling, Mind explores how our very being is sculpted by our interactions in an environment that we ourselves have fashioned, making us our own greatest artifact.

PIERRE CHAREAU | LA MAISON DE VERRE

NZD$135 - SOLD OUT


-------------------

Date of Edition: 2002
Pages: 177
Size: 270 x 260 mm
Publisher: Toto
Text: English / Japanese / French 

An indepth look into La Maison de Verre, in english 'The House of Glass', designed by Pierre Chareau (a furniture and interiors designer), Bernard Bijvoet (a Dutch architect working in Paris from 1927) and Louis Dalbet (craftsman metalworker). 

The house is notable for its splendid architecture, but it may be more well known for another reason. It was built on the site of a much older building which the patron had purchased and intended to demolish. Much to his or her chagrin, however, the elderly tenant on the top floor of the building absolutely refused to sell, and so the patron was obliged to completely demolish the bottom three floors of the building and construct the Maison de Verre underneath, all without disturbing the original top floor.
