Art nouveau architecture by Keiichi Tahara( Book )

13 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 323 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"One of the most significant movements in the history of the decorative arts, Art Nouveau was born of a reaction to the rise of industrialism and inspired by the pioneering idealism of such radical geniuses as John Ruskin and William Morris. Architects and designers were seized with the desire to sweep away old traditions and create functional and original forms in an environment that would satisfy the demands of modern life. The distinctive new style rapidly became recognized the world over. Although it flowered only briefly, in the closing years of the nineteenth century and the beginning of the twentieth, and while a great many of its creations have been destroyed, there still remain myriad examples of its sinuous shapes and organically inspired beauty, whether in the work of individuals such as Victor Horta, Hector Guimard and Antoni Gaudi or in that of collectives such as the Glasgow School and the Wiener Werkstatte."--Jacket
The Louvre : an architectural history by Geneviève Bresc-Bautier( Book )

3 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 299 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The recent vast expansion, transformation and reorganization of the Louvre, and the building of I.M. Pei's controversial glass pyramid in its midst, has drawn attention to the architecture of this extraordinary building - a building which for eight hundred years has been at the center of French history and culture, and to which France's greatest architects, sculptors and painters have given their most inspired work. Beneath the ground, but now easily accessible to visitors, are substantial remains of the medieval castle. It is time, for a new assessment of the Louvre's architectural history. Genevieve Bresc, provides an authoritative guide to every period, including the army of artists and craftsmen who enriched its interiors. Two hundred seductive color plates by the leading architectural photographer Keiichi Tahara reveal the Louvre in all its glory as it has never been seen before

Architecture fin-de-siècle by Keiichi Tahara( Book )

6 editions published in 2017 in English and French and held by 38 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

At the turn of the 20th century, architecture took an imaginative leap. As new construction materials and technologies met such far-flung stimuli as the Far East, nirvana, and the unleashed unconscious of Freudian psychoanalysis, buildings by the likes of Gaudí, Horta, Hoffmann, Loos, and Mackintosh instilled structure with the sinuous lines of nature, surfaces with a fairy-tale shimmer, and spaces with an ethereal wash of light or shadowy, mysterious hush. For this dramatic portfolio, printed for the first time ever in a book with five colors including gold, the late architectural photographer Keiichi Tahara traveled across Europe to present the finest examples of this Art Nouveau architecture. From the glamorous façade of the Grand Hotel Europa to the elaborate sweep of a staircase or the perfect poise of a single chandelier, Tahara captures the intricate details as much as the holistic spatial effects of these ambitious, marvelous structures. With an eye attuned to the style's organic detailing, he surveys its floral patterns, vine-like balustrades, and the soft, hollow interiors that seem to summon us into some primordial place. Drenched in sunshine or draped in dramatic shadows, Tahara's pictures excel in evoking not only the unrivaled aura of these buildings but also the particular, fin-de-siècle spirit of their age, caught on the axis of a century, and characterized by reflection and yearning, as much as technological, philosophical, and political advance. Texts by Riichi Miyake accompany Tahara's pictures to describe the buildings' floor plans, designs, and the broader context of their dreamlike environments
