Responding to increasing client and designer interest in urban dwellings, this volume features a well-documented selection of thirty of the best apartment designs in the United States completed over the past decade.

Each case study includes context-setting exterior photos, lavish photographs of interiors, and clearly annotated drawings ranging from design sketches to construction drawings and details of special features. The illustrations are accompanied by concise, lucid texts that highlight the ideas, as well as the technical and material decisions underpinning each design. Included are works by some of the best-known and most inventive design practitioners in the country, such as Tod Williams and Billie Tsien, Hariri & Hariri, George Ranalli, Krueck & Sexton, and Machado and Silvetti, among others

22 editions published between 2002 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 300 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
Arcadian architecture : Bohlin Cywinski Jackson - 12 houses by Oscar Riera Ojeda( Book )

19 editions published between 2004 and 2007 in English and Italian and held by 273 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Arcadian Architecture takes us into a world in which the lines between nature and architecture have been dissolved. In its presentation of twelve extraordinary homes, this lavish book guides the reader on a coast-to-coast tour that ranges from New York State to Washington State, and from the woods of Connecticut to the mountains of Montana. Whether it is a diminutive cottage hidden in a forest or the elaborate lakeside compound of Bill and Melinda Gates, the American architectural firm of Bohlin Cywinski Jackson has designed each project with an unusual sensitivity to its natural environment. Hundreds of colour photographs, richly detailed conceptual sketches, presentation drawings and construction documents reveal the sheer brilliance and artistry of this work. An eighteen panel foldout portrays four decades of the built and unbuilt residential work of Bohlin Cywinski Jackson
Hariri & Hariri : essays by Kenneth Frampton( Book )

8 editions published between 1995 and 1999 in English and held by 266 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hariri & Hariri exemplifies the spirit of the emerging generation of architects. Gisue Hariri and Mojgan Hariri, Iranian-born, Cornell-educated sisters, opened their New York City practice in 1986. At that time, writes esteemed architectural historian Kenneth Frampton, their work "first broke upon the New York scene, with the publication of a single spiral staircase executed in bent steel plate ... an archetypal modern image set in a different key." Since then, the Hariris have designed a great variety of projects that add tonal and thematic variation to the unique notes in that "different key." They are working, says one commentator, "in a twenty-first-century, space age mode." Thirty of their works are shown in this book, including a number of apartment renovations in New York, several houses throughout North America and Europe, competition entries (for both theoretical and commissioned projects), and custom furniture and lighting for many of the interiors, some of which are now in production. The projects are organized around a number of important themes that have influenced the design and practice of the architects: politics and power; global culture; new technology; gender and identity; composition, construction, and materiality; paradoxical reality; and otherness. The themes are also discussed in a dialogue between the Hariris that runs throughout the book, highlighting their philosophy and thoughts on architecture and contemporary culture: "What is important in terms of cultural connection is the spirituality of Eastern thinking, which we are evaluating in the West, or rather from which we are evaluating the West."--Front flap
Colors : architecture in detail by James McCown( Book )

20 editions published between 2004 and 2006 in English and Italian and held by 264 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 )

20 editions published between 2003 and 2006 in English and Italian and held by 262 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

Buildings & landscapes : Lake/Flato by Lake/Flato (Firme)( Book )

5 editions published between 2002 and 2005 in English and held by 208 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Lake Flato has produced an extraordinary range of buildings and landscapes that respond to local climates and ecologies, that use local materials and products, and that refer to local traditions and forms. Through their sensitive re-interpretations of the places in which they build, Lake Flato has designed structures that seem inseparable from their prairie, desert, bayou, and mountain sites. At the same time, the work has universal appeal as an example of truly sustainable architecture, low in its resource use and well-loved by its users."--Jacket
