內容簡介top Living Architecture 簡介 When architects design private homes, they have the freedom to take risks and to articulate more thoroughly their stylistic and philosophical visions.Living Architecture is a grand-scale tour of the iconic houses of American architecture of the twentieth century.Designed by visionaries as diverse as Robert Venturi and Philip Johnson, the masterpieces selected for this edition blur the lines between dwellings and art, tracing a century of progression.Photography director Lucy Gilmour has chosen some of the world's most talented photographers to poetically capture the feel of these homes, giving readers rare, intimate glimpses into the architects' unique points of view.Author Dominique Browning guides us through a range of styles, eras, and innovations, from James Deering's Vizcaya (an Italian Renaissance-inspired villa in Miami) to postwar marvels by Bauhaus practitioners Ludwig Mies van der Rohe (Farnsworth House) and Marcel Breuer (Hooper House II) to more recent constructions, such as Marwan Al-Sayed's mirage-like House of Earth + Light in the Arizona desert.Floor plans of the homes and biographies of the architects complete this remarkable edition.
