Frederick Law Olmsted : designing the American landscape by Charles E Beveridge( Book )

19 editions published between 1995 and 2012 in English and held by 924 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A man of passionate vision and drive, Frederick Law Olmsted defined and named the profession of landscape architecture and designed America's most beloved parks and landscapes of the past century - New York's Central Park, Brooklyn's Prospect Park, the U.S. Capitol grounds, the Biltmore Estate, and many others. During a remarkable forty-year career that began in the mid-1800s, Olmsted created the first park systems, urban greenways, and suburban residential communities in this country. He was a pivotal figure in the movement to create and preserve natural parks such as Yosemite, Yellowstone, and Niagara Falls; and he contributed to the design of many academic campuses, including Stanford University in Palo Alto, California." "Today there is a resurgence of interest in Olmsted's work and legacy in both the United States and Europe. This timely volume, following the format of Rizzoli's successful Masterworks series, presents the breadth of Olmsted's work in expansive, beautiful color photographs by Paul Rocheleau, who conceived this book. The engaging text illuminates Olmsted's role as an indefatigable administrator and social reformer, a man who slept a scant few hours each night and rallied around causes ranging from anti-slavery to sanitary regulation. Olmsted's career reflected a deep concern for fostering community and using the restorative effects of natural scenery to counteract the debilitating forces of the modern city."--Jacket
Shaker built : the form and function of Shaker architecture by Paul Rocheleau( Book )

15 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 655 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Paul Rocheleau has photographed Shaker places and things for more than twenty years. He brings his special sensitivity to Shaker Built, the first book on Shaker architecture in many years and the only book on the subject in full color. Together with writer and Shaker authority June Sprigg, Rocheleau has explored what remains of the Shakers' quietly magnificent "cities of peace, love, and union" to present a visually stunning portrait of Shaker meeting houses, dwellings, workshops, and barns. Sprigg's lyrical essays and informative captions combine with David Larkin's masterful design to produce a photographic book as elegantly simple as Shaker buildings themselves."--Jacket

American synagogues : a century of architecture and Jewish community by Samuel Gruber( Book )

7 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 493 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"American Synagogues is the first book to explore the exceptional works of architecture of modern American synagogues in the twentieth century. In this book author Samuel Gruber relates the fascinating history of the Jewish people in America and how it is expressed in twentieth-century synagogue design." "The book features all-new photography of synagogues in many styles from a dozen states, many never before published in any form. These include major buildings in the New York area, Los Angeles, Chicago, Miami, Atlanta, Baltimore, Cleveland, Austin, and elsewhere. The synagogues were designed by such European masters as Eric Mendelsohn, Walter Gropius, and Pietro Belluschi, who helped bring modernism to America; and the best-known modern American architects, including Frank Lloyd Wright, Philip Johnson, Harrison and Abramovitz, and Minoru Yamasaki. Many include artwork by Ben Shahn, Louise Nevelson, and other important artists. Striking but little-known synagogues of the post-war period by Percival Goodman, Sidney Eisenshtat, and Werner Seligmann are included. Visually stunning variations on Classical and Deco forms by major early twentieth-century architects, such as Arnold Brunner, Henry Hornbostel, Alfred S. Alschuler, Charles R. Greco, and Philip Trammel Schutze are also featured. Important contemporary works by Norman Jaffe, Thomas Beeby, Will Bruder, Lake/Flatow, Alexander Gorlin and others demonstrate the most recent developments in synagogue design."--Jacket
Architecture for art : American art museums, 1938-2008( Book )

9 editions published between 2004 and 2008 in English and held by 493 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This survey follows the trajectory of museum architecture in America since the birth of Modernism by examining art museums throughout the country, each described in short essays by the architects and museum directors themselves and illustrated with more than two hundred color photographs by architectural photographer Paul Rocheleau. As these examples make clear, museum architecture in the United States has become the only dependable refuge for great architects to push the boundaries of design, the one area of architectural practice in which radically new forms and cutting-edge materials have been welcomed, if not demanded by the museum-going public

Barn : preservation & adaptation : the evolution of a vernacular icon by Elric Endersby( Book )

8 editions published between 2003 and 2014 in English and held by 346 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This richly illustrated volume from leading barn historians and preservationists is a celebration of a quintessential American architectural form. Widely revered yet steadily vanishing from our cultural landscape, the barn is an expression of pastoral romance, painstaking craftsmanship, and tradition. The authors, both practitioners of historic barn restoration, offer a tribute to and exploration of the many extant forms of the American barn, following the evolution of the form from this country's earliest days to today, when these structures are repurposed as country lofts and spaces for living. They also show successful efforts to restore, adapt, and repurpose these simple, soulful structures. Barns embody the ethos of another age, one still to be found in these beautiful buildings. Due to the ravages of time, weather, and neglect, these essential American edifices are threatened as never before. Barn afficionados and enchanting storytellers, the authors demonstrate here a profound love and respect for the form. Their book reminds us that barns are as much a part of us as our love of apple pie and should be cherished for their artistry and cultural significance. This revised and updated edition of Barn coincides with the premiere of the PBS series Barnstruck and describes the process of barn preservation through relocation, focusing on the work of The New Jersey Barn Company, whose dedicated efforts over thirty-five years have saved more than 150 structures

Providing general descriptions of featured styles and building techniques, as well as intriguing personal histories of the private homes, the informative text crosses the country as it covers everything from Dutch colonial farm houses to eclectic Victorian mansions to whimsical stone cottages to modernist expressions by Frank Lloyd Wright and others.
