Say the word "Hollywood" and glamorous, sparkling, lavish images come to mind. In Hollywood Style, bestselling design and style author Diane Dorrans Saeks takes readers on a magical insider's tour of some of the most beautiful and alluring private houses, classic residences, and historic hotels Hollywood has to offer. Behind the clipped hedges, immaculate gardens, and locked doors of these palm-punctuated neighborhoods are the residences of some of the most famous movie stars and musicians in the world, designed by such star architects as Frank Lloyd Wright, Paul Williams, R. M. Schindler, and Richard Neutra. While these inspiring interiors offer opulence, they also feature witty design creativity, inventive architecture, and a chic sensibility that are a welcome respite from the razzle-dazzle of Hollywood. These are interiors that are created with not only elegance but a sense of fun. Each one is lived in and loved. Each one is beautiful yet completely original. With pictures by a selection of Hollywood's top photographers, these pages display an insider's look at the personal style of culture's most influential trendsetters. An exciting and inspiring look at glamour behind the scenes, Hollywood Style is a stunning tribute to exuberant style in all its decadence.

Sbc Aprendizaje A-728.3 IBI*spi
The definitive monograph on the ideas and work of the Canadian-born (of Norwegian ancestry), Florence-trained, Ibiza-based architect. The fusion of Ibizan traditions with modern function, form, and taste is the hallmark of Blakstad's projects, which were dedicated to conserving the cultural significance of the island within today's architecture. Rolph Blakstad exhaustively studied Ibizan architecture when it was still a living millennial tradition, with peasant builders working with rules passed down by word of mouth from father to son. The architect's study of these builders formed the basis of his research, design and building for more than 40 years. This book is a tribute to Blakstad's work in the wake of his death. In it, the reader will discover an unbroken tradition reaching back to distant origins; a design based on historical Mediterranean architecture, combining style and building techniques to suit contemporary lifestyles.

Reconsidering the status and meaning of Bauhaus objects in relation to the multiple re-tellings of the school’s history, this volume positions art objects of the Bauhaus within the theoretical, artistic, historical, and cultural concerns in which they were produced and received. Contributions from leading scholars writing in the field today – including Frederic J. Schwartz, Magdalena Droste, and Alina Payne – offer an entirely new treatment of the Bauhaus. Issues such as art and design pedagogy, the practice of photography, copyright law, and critical theory are discussed. Through a strong thematic structure, new archival research and innovative methodologies, the questions and subsequent conclusions presented here re-examine the history of the Bauhaus and its continuing legacy. Essential reading for anyone studying the Bauhaus, modern art and design.
