Most widely held works by James McCown
Colors : architecture in detail by James McCown( Book )

18 editions published between 2004 and 2006 in 3 languages and held by 260 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Colors looks at ways in which leading architects exploit the possibilities of the chromatic spectrum. The subtle way in which black is applied to frame and organize space, the daring punctuation of red and orange, the ways in which natural materials are used and altered in unexpected ways, all suggest not just the attention of the designer but the presence of a passion for subtle gestures, that taken together form powerful spatial images. Designed by Oscar Riera Ojeda and featuring the photography of Paul Warchol, Colors chronicles recent work in residential, civic and commercial buildings. An introductory essay by James McCown places the subject of architectural color within an historical perspective."--Jacket
Spaces by James McCown( Book )

16 editions published between 2003 and 2006 in English and Italian and held by 256 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The fourth book in the Architecture in Detail series, Spaces is a pictorial exploration of interior and exterior enclosures in both the private and public realms. Details - small and large, subtle and powerful - suffuse the work presented. What emerges is a sense of the imperative of crafting spaces for human shelter, commerce, entertainment and culture. Designers at once draw on venerable architectural wisdom in arranging room layouts, while transgressing and erasing boundaries. Designed by Oscar Riera Ojeda and featuring the photography of Paul Warchol, Spaces chronicles recent work from some of the top architects and interior designers in practice today. An introductory essay by James McCown, entitled "The Enduring Room," explores how the ideas of space, ritual and sequence evolved, from the earliest periods in human history to the heroic modernist era of the early twentieth century to the present day. The dichotomy between inside and outside, public and private, sumptuous and spartan - the diverse and talented group of architects and interior designers featured herein use the three dimensions as their canvas, and in so doing continue to engage, surprise and inspire."--Jacket
Materials by Oscar Riera Ojeda( Book )

8 editions published between 2002 and 2006 in English and Italian and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Materials, the first of two volumes in the series Architecture in Detail, examines a wide spectrum of architectural palettes, from traditional products used innovatively to the testing of newer substances, from elegant applications of inelegant materials to experimentation with unconventional construction practices. Each photograph demonstrates the capacity of details to be mesmerizing expressions of quality and craft through techniques of pattern, texture, color, and surface. Together, all of these characteristics ingeniously contribute to the vitality of the architecture surrounding them. Book jacket."--Jacket
