Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Staircases are one of the most intriguing of architectural elements as well as engineering miracles. This guide showcases 50 brilliant staircase designs by today's leading architects, in locations ranging from a private home in Finland to a Chicago apartment building.

Book News Annotation:

Czech architect Jiricna presents 49 staircases constructed during the last few years in 18 countries. Following a historical overview of this architectural detail from the ancient world to the 20th century, each chapter highlights a different type of staircase (landscape, glass, minimalist, and staircases as sculpture and as a main feature or as technical masterpieces). The projects are illustrated with color photographs and drawings as well as commentary that discusses design intentions, use of materials, mode of construction, and technical features. Oversize: 9.5x11.5<">.
