"Japanese architect Tadao Ando is known throughout the world for his exquisite compositions: small, carefully wrought houses; striking museums and cultural facilities. Ando's distinctive palette of materials - concrete, stone, wood, and glass - sets his work apart, as does his thoughtful consideration of the palette of materials provided by nature. Covering works built over the course of more than twenty-five years, Tadao Ando: Light and Water presents the architect's masterful meditations on the physical and metaphysical qualities of existence." "Ando selected for inclusion the thirty-five projects that best embody his belief that the interplay with nature defines architecture and the passage of time molds architecture. All are shown in spectacular, specially commissioned color photography. Among the major recent works are the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth in Texas; the Komyo-ji Temple in Saijo, Japan; the meditation space for UNESCO in Paris; the Pulitzer Foundation for the Arts in St. Louis; and the Armani/Teatro in Milan. Also included are some of Ando's most important and well-known earlier works, including the Church of the Water in Hokkaido, the Church of the Light in Ibaraki, and a series of houses throughout Japan."--Jacket

Hugh Newell Jacobsen, architect : works from 1993 to 2006 by Hugh Newell Jacobsen( Book )

4 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 236 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The work of Hugh Newell Jacobsen, one of America's most acclaimed architects, is infused with a rare sense of clarity and elegance. He his best known for his modern pavilion-based residences - compositions of simple, gabled forms that are rectangular in plan. Unlike other second-generation modernist architects who revised the iconic European houses of the 1920s or the American Shingle Style of the nineteenth century, Jacobsen draws on inspiration from the vernacular architecture of the American homestead. His grand yet intimately scaled pavilions recall the barns, detached kitchens, and smokehouses - the outbuildings of rural America." "This volume presents the architect's most recent work, including houses, university projects, and a winery, and offers a definitive look at the architect's mature skill and refined taste." "An introduction by architecture critic Paul Goldberger explores Jacobsen's significance in the world of architecture today."--Jacket
The splendor of Cuba : 450 years of architecture and interiors by Michael W Connors( Book )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 213 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An unprecedented tour of stunning and architecturally significant Cuban palacios, mansions, and private homes that have been meticulously preserved, previously un-photographed, and inaccessible to visitors. At a time when more travelers are rediscovering Cuba, this lavishly illustrated volume offers a different view of the island's cultural achievements. It presents not the Cuba of Castro's era, with its derelict buildings and peeling paint, but the opulent world of the Spanish Creole aristocracy of the colonial period, with its Mudejar craftsmanship and baroque palacios, the sugarcane plantations (ingenios) and coffee plantations (cafetales), and classically inspired grand mansions. Exceptional preservation work has kept these villas in the magnificent state in which they were first envisioned. The photographs, shot exclusively for this book, show examples in each area of the island-from the interiors and exteriors in Havana, Santiago de Cuba, Santa Clara, Cienfuegos, and Pinar del Rio to close-up details of courtyards, balconies, galleries, balustrades, grilles, and louvered doors in Trinidad, Matanzas, and Holguin. One featured home is Finca Vigia ("Lookout House"), the former residence of Ernest Hemingway. --- Book Description

Designed and constructed in the second half of the 1980s, the house also exhibits the Grottas exceptional collection of crafts and furniture."
