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.

The Four Books of Architecture, Andrea Palladio; New Introduction by Adolf K. Placzek
6 Andrea Palladio; New Introduction by Adolf K. Placzek The Four Books of Architecture
Dover Publications 231819 New York 0486213080 / 9780486213088 Softcover Near Fine Condition Andrea Palladio was one of the most influential figures that the field of architecture has ever produced. For classical architects, the term Palladian stands for a vocabulary of architectural forms embodying perfection and beauty. Of even greater significance than Palladio's buildings is his treatise "I quattro libri dell'architettura" (The Four Books On Architecture), the most successful architectural treatise of the Renaissance and one of the two or three most important books in the literature of architecture. First published in Italian in 1570, it has been translated into every major Western language. This is the first English translation of Palladio in over 250 years, making it the only translation available in modern English. Until now, English-language readers have had to rely mostly on a facsimile of Isaac Ware's 1738 translation and the eighteenth-century engravings prepared for that text. This new translation by Robert Tavernor and Richard Schofield contains Palladio's original woodcuts, reproduced in facsimile and positioned correctly, adjacent to the text. The book also contains a glossary that explains technical terms in their original context, a bibliography of recent Palladio research, and an introduction to Palladio and his times. The First Book discusses building materials and techniques, as well as the five orders of architecture: Tuscan, Doric, Ionic, Corinthian, and Composite. Palladio describes the characteristics of each order and illustrates them. The Second Book discusses private town houses and country estates, almost all designed by Palladio. The Third Book discusses streets, bridges, piazzas, and basilicas, most of ancient Roman origin. The Fourth Book discusses ancient Roman temples, including the Pantheon. Over 200 engraved plates. Unabridged, unaltered republication of 1738 Isaac Ware edition. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 1-2 kilos. Category: Architecture; United States; Architecture; ISBN: 0486213080.

Andrea Palladio - Unbuilt Venice, Antonio Foscari

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. With colour and black and white illustrations . Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram. Category: Architecture; Architecture; ISBN/EAN: 9783037782224. Inventory No: 231482.

Town Houses, Arian Mostaedi
10 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.
