The Iconic House - Architectural Masterworks Since 1900
Dates:01/01/2050-01/01/2999
One hundred of the most important and influential architect-designed houses in the world. See a list of architects whose work appears in 'The Iconic House' See an interview with Dominic Bradbury about the writing of the book With seminal works from such icons as Le Corbusier, Frank Lloyd Wright and Mies van der Rohe, as well as modern-day greats including Tadao Ando, Rem Koolhaas and Herzog & de Meuron, this book presents a stunning array of the past century’s architectural masterpieces. International in scope and wide-ranging in style, the houses share a remarkable sensitivity to site and context, appreciation of materials and local building traditions, and careful integration of clients’ needs. Each, however, has a unique approach that makes it groundbreaking and radical for its time. Every house has a history, and this book tells the often intimate stories of these remarkable buildings and their architects and clients. Concise, informative texts and fresh, vibrant illustrations, including specially commissioned photographs and a wealth of floor plans and drawings, offer detailed documentation, while a bibliography, gazetteer and list of houses by type offer further information. Whether Arts and Crafts or Art Nouveau, Modernist or Minimalist, High-Tech or vernacular, these iconic buildings from around the world and across the decades will inspire and delight students and professionals, design aficionados and anyone who dreams of building a house of their own some day. 28.00 x 26.00 cm Hardback 352pp 638 Illustrations, 559 in colour First published 2009
Bruxelles (Ixelles)
The Charlier museum and Victor Horta
Dates:01/01/2050-01/01/2999
In 1890, the patron of the arts Henri Van Cutsem (1839-1904) inherited a townhouse in the neoclassical style at 16 avenue des Arts in Sint-Josse-ten-Noode, a borough neighbouring the historical city centre of Brussels. To show off his art collections to best effect, Van Cutsem entrusted the works to extend his home and convert the stables and annexes to a young and as yet unknown architect: Victor Horta. Between 1890 and 1893 the latter designed two galleries topped with glass roofs with metal supports and a new facade giving onto rue de la Charité. This enlarged Hôtel Charlier provides an early example of the innovations that would later become distinctive of the work of the master of Art Nouveau: the fluidity and transparency of the interior spaces, the use and affirmation of visible metal in a private home, fruit at the base of walls to lend an organic illusion, etc. In 1928, the townhouse became known as the "Charlier Museum" in memory of the sculptor Guillaume Charlier (1854-1925), Van Cutsem's universal legatee, who donated the house and its art collections to the borough of Sint-Josse-ten-Noorde. In 1993 the museum was listed as a historical monument by the Brussels-Capital Region. 64 pages, 13 X 13 cm, 180 gramme

The Anderson Collection of Art Nouveau
Dates:01/01/2050-01/01/2999
Sir Colin and Lady Anderson were passionate about Art Nouveau and amassed a collection of furniture, jewellery, glass, ceramics, metalware and graphics that embodied the new style that swept fin de siècle Europe and America. They acquired the work of many of the leading exponents of Art Nouveau, including graphics by Alphonse Mucha, the furniture of Emile Gallé and Louis Majorelle, glass by Louis Comfort Tiffany, jewellery by René Lalique and Georges Fouquet, as well as works made for Liberty & Co by designers such as Archibald Knox. The Collection was given to the University of East Anglia in 1978, to be housed in the newly opened Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts. This catalogue celebrates the Anderson Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts. This catalogue celebrates the Anderson Collection of Art Nouveau with 175 colour images and features essays examining both the varied forms of the style and the artists and designers who made these remarkable works.

Textiles of the Wiener Werkstätte 1910-1932
Dates:01/01/2050-01/01/2999
For designers, decorators or anyone simply in search of visual inspiration, this book is a goldmine and a fitting tribute to a period of astonishing creativity. A wealth of reproductions, many in colour, are supplemented by an exhaustive catalogue and artist biographies, as well as contemporary photographs of the textiles’ uses in fashion and interior decoration. The textile patterns and prints of the Wiener Werkstätte were among the most popular and successful designs of the early twentieth century, reflecting both the tastes of Viennese high society and the general trend towards artistic abstraction. Textiles of the Wiener Werkstätte 1910–32 presents selections from the original gouache drawings, pattern books and about 20,000 samples now in the collection of the Austrian Museum of Applied Arts, Vienna – a truly remarkable archive of most of the over 1,800 recorded fabric designs. These range from the early naturalistic motifs of Art Nouveau to the later geometric designs associated with Art Deco. Angela Völker’s text gives accounts of a range of topics, including the designs by Koloman Moser and Josef Hoffmann for Backhausen and Söhne before the foundation of the textile department in about 1910, methods of production, sales policy, customers and end use. 28.00 x 20.70 cm Paperback with flaps 256pp 417 Illustrations, 306 in colour First published 2004

Taxile Doat – Maître des Grand Feu
Dates:27/02/2014-29/09/2014
Ce céramiste, surnommé "le maître du grand feu", a travaillé de 1877 à 1905 à la Manufacture nationale de Sèvres, avant d'ouvrir son propre atelier. Ses recherches sur la porcelaine, le grès et la glaçure, ainsi que son désir de renouveler les décors et les formes des vases sous l'influence naturaliste et japonaise font de lui l'un des acteurs majeurs du renouveau de la céramique en France au début du 20ème siècle. Il reçoit la médaille d'or à l'Exposition universelle de 1889. En 1909, il part enseigner la céramique aux Etats Unis, à l'académie des arts de St Louis, à la demande d'Edouard Gardner Lewis. Il revient définitivement en France en 1915. Doat publia en 1905 un livre, "Les céramiques de grand feu", dans lequel il explique ses recherches, notamment sur un type de décor dit de "pâte sur pâte", ainsi que de nouveaux types de glaçure. L'exposition du studio du musée Hetjens propose un ensemble de pièces de ce type, conservées dans une collection privée. ON peut admirer quelques exemples de son travail au musée d'Orsay, comme par exemple cette courge, qui n'est pas sans évoquer des verreries d'Emile Gallé sur ce thème, ou au musée des arts décoratifs. Taxile Doat est également présent dans les collections du V&A de Londres et dans des musées américains. Source: Véronique Baudouin, dans OFF, le blog du Musée de l'Ecole de Nancy.

Tallinn’s Art-Nouveau Architecture. Jacques Rosenbaum (1878–1944)
Dates:01/01/2050-01/01/2999
Jacques Rosenbaum was one of the most outstanding Tallinn architects of the early 20th century.

Also published in the book are a large number of Rosenbaum’s unrealised projects. The study includes new data and documents on Rosenbaum’s previously unknown activities, including those from the last part of his life in Germany during the 1930s, which the author collected in Berlin archives.

Venezia
Symposium - 2014 International Venice Architecture Biennale
Dates:18/10/2014-18/10/2014

Architectural experts are to meet in Venice to discuss the restoration of Glasgow School of Art's (GSA) Mackintosh library, which was destroyed in a fire in May.

The art school will host two meetings to explore key questions around the rebuilding of the unique library, one in the Italian city in October and the second in Glasgow next spring.

The Venice symposium will feature keynote speakers, while figures from fields such as architecture and heritage will be invited to attend. The event, on October 18, is taking place in Querini Stampalia during the 2014 International Venice Architecture Biennale. Members of the public will also be able to attend.

It will be aligned with the Scotland + Venice programme presented by Reiach and Hall as part of a residency at the UK Pavilion during the biennale.

Bruxelles
Strasbourg 1900 - Carrefour des arts nouveaux
Dates:01/01/2050-01/01/2999
A la suite de l'annexion, l'Alsace et la Moselle, devenues terres d'Empire, vont connaître un essor remarquable, dont Strasbourg, ville forteresse, fut la principale bénéficiaire grâce à la construction d'édifices aux structures et lignes nouvelles, aux ornements de façades, aux décorations intérieures innovantes, aux projets d'hygiène et de cités-jardins... Les architectes optent alors pour des formes et des matériaux nouveaux et contribuent à faire de l'Alsace et de sa capitale Strasbourg un carrefour des Arts nouveaux, aux côtés de Nancy, la ville des artistes de l'école de Nancy et du plus connu d'entre eux, Emile Gallé, et de Munich ou Darmstadt. Ce mouvement mondial appelé également Modern Style ou Jugendstil va s'incarner essentiellement dans l'architecture et les arts décoratifs. Il est porté par une éthique où le beau, dans un environnement d'art global, veut marquer de son empreinte le monde de l'utile. On s'inquiète de la production en série qui déshumanise l'objet et l'on prône un retour à l'artisanat et aux arts appliqués.

Stained Glass - Masterpieces of the Modern Era
Dates:01/01/2050-01/01/2999
The twentieth century, with its revolution in architectural methods and materials, opened up new possibilities for stained glass. During the last thirty years, a great many projects have been created in stained glass all over the world, in both new buildings and historical churches and institutions. Studies of this phenomenon have been rare until now, and this book is a pioneer in the survey of this fascinating field. From the magnificent Art Nouveau ceilings of Parisian department stores, to exuberant designs from the Islamic world, and further still to the temples and palaces of India, Indonesia and Japan, stained glass becomes a medium by which the traditional and the avant-garde come together to create sumptuous decoration. Here too are striking designs by modern artists like Marc Chagall and Fernand Léger, and glass put to skilful and subtle use by master architects such as Antoni Gaudí and Frank Lloyd Wright. 31.50 x 27.00 cm Hardback 216pp 247 Illustrations, 246 in colour First published 2007
