Dream houses by Murray Grigor( Visual )

2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 264 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A person's home is his self-image, his autobiography as ghost-written by the architect. Mark Twain's house suited him so well that he became convinced he had himself designed it. A more imposing self-portrait is Fenway Court, which ignores the Colonial past and industrial present to recreate a Venetian palazzo in Boston; the American industrialist as Renaissance Italian prince is seen in Vizcaya, built in a drained mangrove swamp. William Randolph Hearst's mother would't buy him the Louvre, so when he grew up he built his own: San Simeon-the ranch to end all ranches, half the size of Rhode Island, a distinctly Californian place that combined glory on the refectory walls with ketchup in bottles on the table. Other houses visited in this program are Wright's Hollyhock House for Aline Barnsdall, Saarinen's Cranbrook House for George G. Booth, Henry Davis Sleeper's Beauport, and Peter Eisenman's House 6, whose thesis is that the good old days are tomorrow. (58 minutes)
Resorts : paradise reclaimed( Visual )

2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 263 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

American pioneers had to overcome the dangerous wilderness; Americans at rest want to return to nature-not the wilderness, but a tamed and peaceful nature. Having cut down nature to build cities, we bring back the country through parks: New York's Central Park gives us a dreamlike, idealized New York with forests, lakes, hills, meadows, foot and bridle paths, and architecture to complement the picturesque settings; vacationers sought rusticity with comfort, and nature brought indoors became the fad. The ultra-rich built a private resort town around a country club (The Newport Casino, R.I.- both classical and colloquial, the first example of the Shingle Style); they found shelter in marble palaces (they called them cottages)-the Vanderbilts contributed to this genre; Addison Mizner concocted Palm Beach for it. Postwar Florida resorts bear the strong imprint of Hollywood-in the great hotels of Miami Beach and in the fantasy of Disney World, which gives us the elemental, mythically American
Suburbs : Arcadia for everyone( Visual )

2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 262 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Americans dream of owning a single-family home - ideally in some leafy Arcadia not too far from the city workplace. There are many shapes to this dream - Gothic cottages and mini-castles surrounded by manicured wilderness, like the first planned suburban development in Llewellyn Park, N.J.; detached dwellings in sylvan surroundings, with restrictive land use and minimum cost regulations (Olmstead and Vauz' Riverside); the company town, whose prototype is Pullman, IL.; a suburb like Forest Hills successfully inserted into the very heart of New York: a totally designed community that combines quaintness and modernity, compact enought to be served by a single school and having a civic focus; Oak Bluffs on Martha's Vineyard, which grew from a religious tent city into a planned resort village. Levittown addressed the problem of affordable individual housing for large masses and their automobiles. Some of the solutions became problems in themselves. Still, though in places it turned nightmare - Slurbia, spreading like ooze between and even within cities - the dream of owning one's own home is the glory of American life, the most persuasive exemplar of our democracy
The Places within( Visual )

2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 262 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The corridors of power, in business and government, lead to heroic interior spaces, and business has frequently appropriated the architecture of powerâ₂?that is, of government. Interior spaces symbolize as well as contain function. The ambiguous relationship to nature is seen in the American desire to bring a scaled-down outdoors inside; the incorporation of the past takes different shapes. The town square concept reappears in guises as diverse as the great interior space under the Capitol dome and the glazed-over shopping mall that is Houston's Galleria; hotels and museums with indoor plazas seek to provide the same sort of community meeting space. Grand Central Terminalâ₂?with twinkling stars painted on its concourse ceilingâ₂?is both the nexus of a transportation network and a grand bazaar. The Pennsylvania Academy of Art demonstrates how the effort to combine tradition, function, and the symbols of industrial modernity may wind up a mixed metaphor. It took Frank Lloyd Wright to reconcile the dome of the pantheon and the arcaded market in the Marin County Civic Center
The Campus : place apart( Visual )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 260 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Thomas Jefferson's University of Virginiaâ₂?the first American campusâ₂?is like its founder in exemplifying the national capacity for self-invention. Palladio's shade hangs over the individual house-temples which line the landscaped mallâ₂?a uniquely American idea. University builders have sought to separate the campus, by locating it in the country or by erecting wallsâ₂?walls of stone or of style. Since universities teach the past, they often reflect architecturally the sources of Western civilizationâ₂?the past America itself lacks: the invented medieval past of Yale's Gothic buildings or St. Paul's; the monumental classicism of the U.S. Naval Academy; and classicism updated in Chicago's I.I.T., where I-beams replace Doric columns. Whether in the futurism of G.M. Tech or the Air Force Academy, the integration of city and campus at the University of Chicago or the Roman Forum re-invented for the Loyola Law School, today's campus seeks to combine the dream of the past with the materials and problems of today
