Great houses of the South by Laurie Ossman( Book )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 188 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The 'great house' of the South inhabits a place of the imagination as much as it does any particular geographic terrain. Margaret Mitchell's Tara from 'Gone with the Wind', though fictional, stands even now for many Americans as the epitome of the type, with its stately white-columned porticos, shady verandahs, and elegant interiors with graceful proportions. Yet the Southern great house is much more than this. From the bookish if slightly irregular Neoclassicism of Mount Vernon to the aristocratic European splendor of Biltmore, Great Houses of the South documents through vibrant new photography the many manifestations that this mythic, highly individualized architecture has taken while richly nuanced text narrates a great American story of tradition, aspiration and reinvention."--Front flap

Napa Valley style by Kathryn Masson( Book )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 114 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"California's Napa Valley is as renowned for its beauty as it is for being America's preeminent region for growing and producing America's highest-quality wines. Although there are many guidebooks, cookbooks, and publications for connoisseurs available on this immensely popular region, there has been no book that shows the Napa way of life -- until now. Napa Valley Style takes us on a private tour of the houses and magnificent gardens that make Napa Valley so extraordinary. This lively trip through the wine country illustrates for the first time, and in lavish color, Napa Valley's extraordinary Italianate villas, hillside cottages, lived-in restored barns, hand-made houses, wineries, and custom-designed residences. Featured here is work by such luminaries in architecture and design as Michael Graves and Ricardo Legorreta. A uniquely revealing tour of this incredible region, Napa Valley Style is a fascinating, beautifully photographed extravaganza. Book jacket."--Jacket

3 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 96 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The revitalization of Miami's South Beach Art Deco District is one of the great success stories of twentieth-century architecture and urban design. In the wake of this success, a mdoernist building boom resulted to complement the existing Art Deco gems, and the development Aqua is the culmination of this urban transformation. The brainchild of the developer Craig Robins, Aqua is the first New Urbanist community that features exclusively modernist work - with a star roster of architects, such as Alison Spear, Hariri & Hariri, and Alexander Gorlin. The result is an unprecedented residential enclave the combines the best of neo-traditional urbanism with cutting-edge modernist designs. In addition, specifically commissioned artwork by internationally renowned artists Richard Tuttle, Guillermo Kuitca, and Mark Handforth further engages the senses and activates Aqua's community spaces. Aqua - a realized vision for living in both Miami Beach and beyond - provides a compelling model for the future of growing communities worldwide. -- from dust jacket
