Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

'

A volume that spans nearly 250 years of architecture, this handsome publication features projectsknown as Diploma Worksby some of the most illustrious members of the Royal Academy of Arts. Diploma Works were presented by the architects upon their election to the Academy and represent the scope and vision of their creative process. They include Sir John Soanes designs for a new House of Lords, Sir Robert Smirkes reconstruc­tive interpretation of the Acropolis at Athens, William Wilkinss designs for the gateway and screen at Kings College, Cambridge, Alfred Waterhouses Manchester Town Hall, Sir Edwin Lutyenss work in New Delhi, and Sir Nicholas Grimshaws Waterloo International Terminal. The incisive text illuminates each work.'

Synopsis:

In recent years, mid-century modern furniture, glass, ceramics, and textiles have become hugely popular among those who appreciate the stylish contribution these pieces make to the contemporary home. Modern Retro will inspire you to create a look that combines modern classics by such visionaries as the Eameses, Bertoia, and Aalto with thrift -store finds and the best contemporary design. Created by modern classics dealer Andrew Weaving and design commentator Neil Bingham, with photography by Andrew Wood, Modern Retro is not about slavishly recreating a period feel. Instead, it shows how to take the best designs of the 1920s through 1970s and use them throughout your home in a relaxed and individual way, allowing you to make the most of the gloriously eclectic forms, colors, and patterns available.
