The public and private worlds of Elizabeth I by Susan Watkins( Book )

12 editions published between 1998 and 2007 in English and held by 650 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An intimate account of a remarkable national transformation: how Queen Elizabeth I set out to capture the hearts of her people. A brilliant picture of Queen Elizabeth I's life emerges here, beginning with her birth--her father Henry VIII had desired a male heir--punctuated by conspiracies, and endangered during the period of rule by her Catholic half-sister Mary, whom she succeeded in 1558. It gave her an enduring sense that to remain on the throne she must encourage the love of her people. In plays and pageants, in cameos, medallions, and portraits, and through the furnishings and gardens of the great country houses, the royal image was specifically tailored to evoke devotion. To love Elizabeth was to love England, and the Queen personified both an era and a national style. Watkins skillfully recreates court life in the palaces along the Thames, and in the nearly sixty royal houses that were Elizabeth's inheritance. An important part of the spectacle was the royal progress to the great country houses of her subjects. An Elizabethan house was not just an architectural achievement: it was often the literal embodiment of a relationship with the monarch. Throughout, Mark Fiennes' inspired photography, together with portraits, paintings, tapestries, and personal objects, give visual expression to the nation's evolving love affair with its queen. 157 illustrations, 154 in color

Building with history by Paul Goldberger( Book )

4 editions published between 2005 and 2014 in English and held by 88 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book offers a critique of Foster + Partners' work in the context of historic structures or sensitive historical locations. Foster + Partners' work is rooted in a belief that there is no conflict between a passion for structures from the past and anticipation of the architecture of the future: old and new can coexist with integrity and without apology. Per Norman Foster, "Each age produces its own vocabulary. ... In buildings that have evolved over time the original layers of history can often be understood more readily when seen alongside the new." Critic Paul Goldberger explores the practice's approach to "building with history," culminating with the remodeling of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. Complementing the study is a pictorial record of projects that illustrate different strands of Foster + Partners' work in this field, photographed by the distinguished Richard Bryant and the late Mark Fiennes
Church of the Sacred Heart : Jože Plečnik : [Prague 1922-1933] by Ivan Margolius( Book )

Externally the church is enclosed by dark brown brickwork punctuated at regular intervals with vertical rectangular slabs of grey granite; above the brick wall a totally different architecture of classical proportions appears, faced in white render. The massive 42-metre high clock and bell tower further adds to the contradictory nature of the church, and offers a further striking contrast with the simple interior

1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cloaked in its brilliant mantle of brick, fiery terracotta and red sandstone, the University of Pennsylvania Library stands as the mature-period masterwork of Philadelphia's premier Victorian-era architect, Frank Furness. Conceived in consultation with two eminent library theoreticians, the library plan evolved from practical experience with the inadequacies of nineteenth-century library buildings; the result was a modern factory for learning, a machine for the use and storage of books
