This is true for landmark buildings and major public projects as well as residential and family properties. Yet architecture is also an expression of an individual's personality, needs, taste, and his or her overall take on life. Different countries, cultures, and lifestyles influence the design of structures and interiors as much as the local climate and other regional characteristics do. What does a house need to become a home? Infinite Space provides answers to this question that are as varied as the people behind the projects presented on its pages. Singles, couples, and families; clients, architects, and suppliers--they all have their own ideas of what makes a modern home. While the featured buildings have a contemporary clarity, lightness, and openness in common, they differ greatly in their details. The spectrum of materials used includes wood, stone, metal, and glass. Colors range from bright to subdued; furnishings from glamorously elaborate to tastefully understated. Their unique combination gives each house its character or, rather, reflects the character of its owners, builders, and residents. A terrace by a lake, a dramatic fireplace, a living room bathed in sunlight adjoining an open-plan kitchen, a pool amongst palm trees, a sauna in the forest, a bedroom with a sky view--Infinite Space showcases stunning projects from all around the world captured by renowned architecture and interior photographer James Silverman on his travels. In his images of living rooms, bedrooms, bathrooms, kitchens, dining rooms, working areas, children's rooms, and gardens, Silverman explores the interplay of functional and decorative space, as well as interiors and exteriors. Infinite Space takes a nuanced look at how houses are constructed today. This book will not only inspire professional architects and interior designers, but it will also prompt anyone building or renovating a house to define their own particular home in more detail--little by little, and each time slightly differently. Until their dream home becomes a reality.
Автор: Turkina, Olesya Название: Soviet Space Dogs ISBN: 0956896286 ISBN-13(EAN): 9780956896285 Издательство: Thames & Hudson Рейтинг: Цена: 14300 T Наличие на складе: Есть Описание: This book is dedicated to the Soviet Space Dogs, who played a crucial part in the Soviet Space programme. These homeless dogs, plucked from the streets of Moscow, were selected because they fitted the programmes criteria: weighing no more than 7kg, measuring no more than 35cm in length, robust, photogenic and with a calm temperament. These characteristics enabled the dogs to withstand the extensive training that was needed to prepare them for suborbital, then for orbital space fights. On 3 November 1957, the dog Laika was the first Earth-born creature to enter space, making her instantly famous around the world. She did not return. Her death, a few hours after launching, transformed her into a legendary symbol of sacrifice. Two further strays, Belka and Strelka, were the first beings to make it back from space, and were swiftly immortalized in childrens books and cartoons. Images of the Space Dogs proliferated, reproduced on everyday goods across the Soviet Union: cigarette packets, tins of sweets, badges, stamps and postcards all bore their likeness. This book uses these unique items to illustrate the story (in fact and fiction) of how they became fairy-tale idols. Monuments now commemorate their pioneering role in conquering the final frontier: their heroism will never be forgotten
