100 Contemporary Green Buildings


Eco-friendly building in the world today The most exciting new buildings in the world are now almost all environmentally aware, sustainable, and conceived to consume far less energy than ever before. That architecture is one of the major sources of greenhouse gases in the world makes this new trend is all the more significant. This book brings together the best examples of green projects from the "Architecture Now" series together with numerous new, never-before-seen projects. Well-known architects like Frank Gehry and Norman Foster are present right alongside young, up-and-coming creators from Latin America, the United States, Europe, and Asia. This is not a technical book, nor are its contents limited to any pre-defined category. Being "green" means being aware of the responsibility implied in the construction and use of modern buildings, and there are many ways to express this rising consciousness. Some solutions, the ones generally called "passive," are as old as the history of architecture, while others are born of cutting-edge technologies. Both approaches and many more are included in this ground-breaking collection of 100 of the world's most exciting recent eco-friendly buildings.

Racinet Costume History


Togas, Turbans, Tailcoats And Top Hats. The evolution of style from antiquity to 1888. Originally published in France between 1876 and 1888, Auguste Racinet's "Le Costume historique" was the most wide-ranging and incisive study of clothing ever attempted. Covering the world history of costume, dress, and style from antiquity through the end of the 19th century, the great work - published in six volumes containing nearly 500 plates - remains, to this day, completely unique in its scope and detail. Racinet's organization by culture and subject has been preserved in TASCHEN's magnificent and complete reprint, as have excerpts from his delightful descriptions and often witty comments. Volume I contains all plates from Racinet's work, reproduced in brilliant quality and showing the original's love for detail and color. Volume 2 collects the texts accompanying the images, giving descriptions and explanations, as well as the introduction by Francoise Tetart-Vittu. Perusing these beautifully detailed and exquisitely colored illustrations, you'll discover everything from the garb of ancient Etruscans to traditional Eskimo attire to 19th century French women's couture. Though Racinet's study spans the globe from ancient times through his own, his focus is on European clothing from the Middle Ages to the 1880s and this subject is treated with exceeding passion and attention to detail.

Architecture Now! Landscape


Turning the world green. The architecture of the great outdoors. One of the hottest areas of contemporary design is clearly landscape architecture. No matter what the architectural style of the moment, the green areas around houses, stadiums or corporate headquarters have taken on a considerable importance, all the more so with the emphasis on ecology and green design. This book calls on the work of the top designers of the moment, from Ken Smith, author of the "Museum of Modern Art's" rooftop garden to West8 from Rotterdam, but also on architects ranging from Foreign Office to Tadao Ando who have long been fascinated by the environments of their buildings. There are new names like the Lebanese landscape architect Vladimir Djurovic and well-known ones like Martha Schwartz. There are established firms like the Wirtz family from Belgium or Gustafson Porter from the United States and young creators like Sophie Agata Ambroise from Lugano. The limit between architecture and landscape architecture is not always easy to define, but this new book opens the doors and windows of today's architecture into the gardens of tomorrow. Featured architects and practices include: AECOM, Tadao Ando, Balmori Associates, Patrick Blanc, Caffarena, Cobos et al, Cervino Lopez, Vladimir Djurovic, DSR, Peter Eisenman, EMBT, James Corner Field, Glavovic Studio, Carrilho da Graca, Gustaffson Guthrie, Gustaffson Porter, Zaha Hadid, Herzog & de Meuron, Steven Holl, Martin Hurtado, Raymond Jungles, Maya Lin, LRO, Giovanni Maciocco, Michael Maltzan, Mecanoo, Fernando Menis, Eduardo de Miguel, Catherine Mosbach, Sotoji Nakamura, Victor Neves, NGBM, Nieto Sobejano, Officina del Paesaggio, Okra, John Pawson, Renzo Piano, Palerm Tabares, Masuno Shunmyo, Ken Smith, Taylor Cullity Lethlean, Michael van Valkenburgh, Weiss Manfredi, West8, and Wirtz International, Work AC.

Teraz, po desiatich rokoch, SUMO ponúkame v ekonomickejšej podobe, ale so zhodným obsahom ako pôvodná verzia. SUMO predstavuje 350 fotografií, ktoré pokrývajú všetky stránky Newtonovej výnimočnej tvorby, pričom väčšina z nich je prvý raz publikovaná. Od ohromujúcich módnych fotografií, ktoré ovplyvnili celé generácie mladších fotografov, až po silné, erotické akty či dokonale vypovedajúce portréty celebrít. Výhodou čitateľov nového vydania je fakt, že už nebudú pri práci s monografiou limitovaní jej veľkosťou a s pomocou stojanu, ktorý je súčasťou knihy, si môžu pohodlne vychutnať krásu a výnimočnosť tohto knižného skvostu.

Living in Provance T25


La belle vie. The textures and tones of dreamy Provence. Nestled in the south of France, bordering the Mediterranean sea, is a magical region of the world renowned for its lavender fields, fine cuisine, golden sun, and dreamy landscapes. This land, known as Provence, has inspired such writers and artists as Alphonse Daudet, Frederic Mistral, and Vincent Van Gogh. Paul Cezanne loved the region's Mount Sainte Victoire so much that he immortalized it in his famous paintings; his Provence studio, which still looks the same as it did over one hundred years ago, is featured herein, as is the house where Mistral, 1904 Nobel prize-winner, lived and wrote. Also included are photographs of the famous Hotel Nord-Pinus in Arles where Jean Cocteau sojourned and Picasso stayed when he came to see the bullfights. Bringing together the region's most remarkable interiors, classical and contemporary, this book paints a gorgeous picture of Provencal living.

Gustav Klimt (1826 - 1918)


Jeho revolta proti akademizmu strhla koncom 19. storočia vlnu odporu. Bol terčom urážok, ale aj nadšeného obdivu. Pre jedných bol šíriteľom pornografie, pre iných zase otcom novej maľby. Rakúšan Gustav Klimt bol presvedčený, že umenie je o slobode.
Jeho maľba bola oslavou života, ale najmä ženy. On je moderným tvorcom tajomnej a dráždivej femme fatale osudovej ženy. Stal sa ikonou viedenskej secesie. Kto sa chce o mne ako umelcovi niečo dozvedieť, ten nech sa pozorne pozerá na moje obrazy a
z nich nech sa snaží poznať, čo som a čo chcem, povedal raz Klimt, ktorý zásadne odmietal autoportréty. Nerád sa opisoval. Nechával za seba rozprávať obrazy. Svojim obľúbeným témam však venoval maximálnu pozornosť. Ženy, život a smrť. Magický kalei
doskop, ktorý Klimt posunul do neznesiteľne ľahkého tanca.

Frenchman


In New York in 1948, photographer Philippe Halsman had a chance meeting with Fernandel, a French movie star from the vaudeville tradition, and asked the actor to participate in a completely original photographic experiment. Halsman would ask Fernandel questions about America to which he would respond using only facial expressions. With his wide, lovable horse-face, Fernandel mimicked the answers to such questions as “Does the average Frenchman still pinch pretty girls in a crowd?” (silly grin) and “What was your reaction to the great American game of baseball?” (perplexed). Fernandel’s reactions are laugh-out-loud funny, and the book that resulted from this unusual collaboration is nothing short of wonderful. The Frenchman has been out of print for over fifty years, but TASCHEN’s reprint thankfully brings it back to life.

All-American Ads 50


Second in a series of books featuring advertising by era, All-American Ads of the 50s offers page after page of products that made up the happy-days decade. The start of the cold war spurred a buying frenzy and a craze for new technology that required ad campaigns to match. The nuclear age left its mark all over the advertisements, with a spotlight on planes, rockets, and even mushroom clouds. Shiny, big, beautiful cars abound, styled to keep up with the space age. Editor Jim Heimann, in his essay "From Poodles to Presley, Americans Enter the Atomic Age," explains: "Car designers came up with exaggerated tail fins for automobiles to express this new accelerated speed." Modernist home interiors look slick and shiny with their molded plastic furniture and linoleum floors. While clothing and furniture styles look strangely contemporary--a testament to our current obsession with vintage--some things have definitely changed. A baby sells Marlboro cigarettes! Also included are chapters on movies, food, and travel. --J.P. Cohen
