    The islands of Naoshima, Teshima, and Inujima in Japan's Seto Inland Sea are places of pilgrimage for friends of contemporary art and architecture. Alongside works in public spaces as well as site-specific installations, the islands are also full of numerous museums and collections of contemporary art.

    Title: Interior Landmarks

    Some are widely celebrated--Radio City Music Hall, the Great Hall of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Grand Central Station--and others virtually unknown, all warrant preservation. This book is the first to present great landmarked interiors of New York in all their intricate detail, in a visual celebration of space that captures the rich heritage of the city.

    In the fifty years since it was established in 1965, the New York City Landmarks Law has preserved for generations to come a remarkable number of significant buildings that represent New York City's cultural, social, economic, political, and architectural history. Not only do the exterior facades of these buildings fall within the law's purview, but, since 1973, many of their stunning interiors as well.
    This book tells the colorful stories of 47 interior landmarks from the oldest to the youngest--from the grand Italianate and infamous Tweed Courthouse, the centerpiece of the largest corruption case in New York history, and the glamorous Art Deco Rainbow Room, constructed shortly after the repeal of the Prohibition--to the modernist 1967 Ford Foundation Building, whose garden-filled atrium exemplified sustainable design well before the concept became fashionable, and was hailed as "one of the most romantic environments ever devised by corporate man."
    Located throughout the five boroughs, the interior landmarks include banks, theaters, office building lobbies, restaurants, libraries, and more--spaces in which New Yorkers have worked, learned, governed, been entertained, and interacted with their communities for decades.
    Readers will learn about their original construction and style, their exceptional design features, materials, and architectural details--then of the challenges to preserving them--whether they were unanimously accepted or hotly contested in legal battles--the restorations or re-imaginings that took place, and the preservationists, philanthropists, politicians, and designers who made it possible. Combining strong visuals and thorough research, this valuable reference work will fascinate all readers with an interest in the city's history.

    The Master of Modern. & Discoveries from the Julius Shulman vaults
    The buildings burned in our memories, which to us represent the spirit of '50s and '60s architectural design, were those whose pictures were widely published in magazines and books; but what about those that got lost in the process, hardly or never appearing in publication?

    The exchange of visual information is crucial to the development, evolution, and promotion of architectural movements. If a building is not widely seen, its photograph rarely or never published, it simply does not enter into architectural discourse. Many buildings photographed by Julius Shulman suffered this fate, their images falling into oblivion. With this book, TASCHEN brings them to light,& paying homage to California Modernism in all its forms.

    The& abandoned files of Julius Shulman& show us another side of Modernism that has stayed quiet for so many years. Bringing together nearly 250 forgotten masterpieces,& Modernism Rediscovered& pays tribute to these lesser known yet outstanding contributions to the modern architectural movement. It's like sneaking into a private history, into homes that have rarely been seen and hardly appreciated as of yet.

    Title: Kahn
    Author: ROSA JOSEPH

    Louis Isadore Kahn (1901-1974) treated each building like a temple. Across the United States, in India, Bangladesh, Pakistan, and Israel, his designs combined the sleek, utilitarian surfaces of modernism with a devotion to geometric forms and a reverence for natural light that suffused his stuctures with a monumental and breathtaking spirituality.

    This essential introduction brings together 17 of Kahn's most important buildings across his cultural, governmental, religious, and residential repertoire. Plans, views, descriptions, and quality photographs trace the context and development of each project, while an introductory essay explores Kahn's unique architectural ideology and his legacy as one of the most important 20th-century American architects since Frank Lloyd Wright.

    Through Kahn masterworks, such as the National Assembly Building in Dhaka, Bangladesh, or Kimbell Art Museum in Fort Worth, Texas, we'll explore Kahn's his "back to basics" grammar inspired by ancient sites in Italy, Greece, and Egypt; and his unique vocabulary of mass, void, and light that suffused the International Style with a near-celestial luminescence.

    Title: Let's Go Out Again Interiors for Restaurants, Bars, and Unusual Food Places

    Interior designers and architects worldwide are using new concepts to make going to a restaurant a multisensory experience. Eating is more than a basic physical process. It is a social, aesthetic, and cultural need. We go out to meet friends or business partners, to try a new culinary trend, to relax in the familiarity of our favorite restaurant, or to revel in the multisensory experience of the latest tasting temple. It is always about more than just eating and drinking. We seek dramaturgy, emotion, and adventure. Whether clean sculptural lines, mirrored facades, old industrial fittings, or cozy retro furnishings, Let's Go Out Again shows how interior designers combine at times unusual ingredients to arrive at a tasteful setting for a range of culinary tastes and occasions. Chefs on sabbatical, for example, are given a creative boost at a restaurant Numero 7 in Morocco. In a historical hotel in Sweden, the designers from Stylt Trampoli have created Gotthards Krog by melding plush with the raw history of a mariner. Casa Negra in the Shoreditch district of northeast London not only serves Mexican fare, but also couples Mexican style with British Townhouse elements. The scope of the eateries presented in this book includes classic and unusual restaurant concepts as well as organic food markets, open-air cooking events, and experimental supper clubs that cater only to registered guests. In Let's Go Out Again, the emphasis is on the inspiring, unconventional architecture of the featured restaurants, bars, and cafes. At the same time, the interior design provides a taste of the food and drinks that are served. Interior designers, artists, architects, and restauranteurs around the world design individual event spaces--whether in New York, London, Berlin, or Fes. These inspiring examples illustrate how taste, emotion, and epicurean delights come together to form a congenial entity.

    Title: Lost & Found: The Mansions of Bengal & Bangladesh
    Author: SCOTT KIP

    The Partition of India in 1947 tragically ripped Bengal apart with a large proportion of the Hindu population departing Dhaka for India. The borders of the new countries were to follow religious lines; India would be for Hindus , Pakistan for Muslims. What is now known as Bangladesh, previously East Pakistan, saw many of it rajbaris or mansions abandoned, a situation further compounded by the independence war of 1971. In Kolkata, and regional Bengal the family owners of lavish colonial houses also experienced dramatic upheaval and a loss in fortunes following Independence.Both the nation of Bangladesh and the Indian state of Bengal are a treasure store of little visited architectural wonders that seem lost in an earlier time. Photographer Kip Scott, noted for his architectural images, here captures the lavish mansions of Bangladesh and Bengal in all their glory. Ruined , restored , lost and found, the magnificent mansions are an often eclectic blend of Mogul and Classical styles. And here those images are so often accompanied by the street life, work or nature that surrounds and sometimes threatens to encompass them.A foreword on the architecture of the amazing mansions is also included.

    Title: Lost Vanguard Russian Modernist Architecture 1922-1932
    Author: PARE RICHARD

    The Lost Vanguarddocuments the work of modernist architects in the Soviet Union during the years following the 1917 revolution and civil war. In little more than a decade, some of the most radical buildings of the twentieth century were completed by a small group of architects who developed a new architectural language in support of new social goals of communal life. Rarely published and virtually inaccessible until the collapse of the Soviet regime, these important buildings have remained unknown and unappreciated. Richard Pare's photographs reveal the powerful forms of these structures, some still in use but many now abandoned and decayed. Massive industrial complexes like the Dnieper River Dam and MoGES, which supplies electricity to the city of Moscow; vast communal houses for workers, including Ginzburg's Narkomfin; commercial buildings and government offices; and smaller clubs and theaters were all built in this brief period.In an incisive essay, architectural historian Jean-Louis Cohen surveys the history of the period, providing a context for the emergence of this startling new architecture in parallel to contemporary experiments in Europe.
