The Architecture of Happiness, Alain De Botton
3 Alain De Botton The Architecture of Happiness
Hamish Hamilton 231442 Great Britain 2006 First Edition 0241142482 / 9780241142486 Hardcover Fine Condition Fine What makes a house beautiful? Is it serious to spend your time thinking about home decoration? Why do people disagree about taste? And can buildings make us happy? In "The Architecture of Happiness", Alain de Botton tackles a relationship central to our lives. Our buildings - and the objects we fill them with - affect us more profoundly than we might think. To take architecture seriously is to accept that we are, for better and for worse, different people in different places. De Botton suggests that it is architecture's task to render vivid to us who we might ideally be. Turning the spotlight from the humble terraced house to some of the world's most renowned buildings, de Botton considers how our private homes and public edifices - from those of Christopher Wren to those of Le Corbusier and Norman Foster - influence how we feel, as well as how we could learn to build in ways that would increase our chances of happiness. "The Architecture of Happiness" amounts to a beguiling tour through the philosophy and psychology of architecture. 280 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 1-2 kilos.

Andrea Palladio - Unbuilt Venice, Antonio Foscari
6 Antonio Foscari Andrea Palladio - Unbuilt Venice
Lars Muller 231482 Switzerland 2010 First Edition 3037782226 / 9783037782224 Hardcover (Embossed Cloth) Near Fine Condition No Dust Jacket After the successful conclusion of the centenary celebrations of Andrea Palladio's birth, there are still many unanswered questions about his work. Antonio Foscari retraces Andrea Palladio's life and offers new perspectives on the architects built and unbuilt work. The author reveals an image of Venice that differs from the one we all know: a city that projects herself into the modern age by abandoning the accepted principles of late medieval culture that had so profoundly influenced its formation. 287 pages.

Town Houses, Arian Mostaedi
7 Arian Mostaedi Town Houses
Carles Brota i Camermo 232309 Barcelona 8489861099 / 9788489861091 Hardcover Good Condition Good As the frontier between between the street and intimacy of the interior, the facade concentrates the most interesting aspects of the composition and construction of the project. It is the face of the building, a privileged view onto the exterior, which connects with the neighboring buildings, in order to weave the urban fabric and close the profile of the street. Through recent examples by renowned international architects as Tadao Ando, Klaus & Kaan, Seth Stein, Vincent van Duysen and Bjarme Mastenbroek, among others, this monographic work analyzes the difficulty of integrating new residential volumes into sites that are particularly narrow and difficult due to their situation and environment, and making them connect with the context through exemplary technical and formal solutions. 180 pages. Illustrated with colour photographs. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 1-2 kilos. Category: Architecture; Architecture; ISBN: 8489861099. ISBN/EAN: 9788489861091. Inventory No: 232309.

Castelli del Ducato di Parma e Piacenza, Daniela Guerrieri [Text]
19 Daniela Guerrieri [Text] Castelli del Ducato di Parma e Piacenza
NLF 232782 2006 First Edition Hardcover Near Fine Condition Near Fine Large Book - between A4 and A3 Giancarlo Bertuzzi,Nicoletta Perazzoli, Renzo Marchionni [Photographs] This book is a collection of beautiful images from three skillfull photographers of the castles of Parma and Piancenza. "The Duchy of Parma and the Duchy of Piacenza were defined right from the Longobard era but the ruling dukes were always foreign. The two duchies were finally united under the single rod of order held by the Visconti family, Piacenza in 1335 and Parma in 1346, thus following the fate of first dictated by Milan, and then by the papacy. Castles therefore were both a dream and a failure. They bore witness to conflicts between local feudal lords hoping to affirm an impossible supremacy, playing with all the cards that ruthless and courageous men could put on the table: audacity, alliances, matrimony, relationships, hazardous adventures, quick and easy accumulation of wealth, no strategy was excluded. This volume presents each one {castle} with a brief description and rich images to illustrate how each castle has its own unique form, built with wisdom, elegance and taste, because apart from the strategic aspects which led to its creation and fortification, the symbolic value each castle had was linked to the feudal lord's family, the territory and its own particular traditions. Each heir felt he was under an obligation to modernise keeping these statements of elegance and taste, while still leaving the mark of his own era. " Italian and English text.
