Carlo Scarpa, Castelvecchio, Verona

Carlo Scarpa began to come into national prominence with several designs for exhibitions. The first were in Venice: "Paul Klee" (1948) for the 1949 Biennale, "Giovanni Bellini" (1949) at the Palazzo Ducale, "Toulouse Lautrec" (1952) at the Palazzo Correr, and "Tiepolo" for the 1952 Biennale. Others followed: "Quattrocento" (1953) at Messina town hall and "Piet Mondrian" (1956) at the Galleria Nazionale d'Arte Moderna in Rome. Such commissions finally led him into the design of museum interiors: among many, his most celebrated were the Museo dell'Accademia (1952-56) and the Museo Correr (1953 to 1969), both in Venice, the Palazzo Abbatellis (1953/54) in Palermo, the Gipsoteca Canoviana in Possagno (1955-57) and the Museo di Castelvecchio (1956-64) in Verona. Scarpa's exhibit designs and museum interiors present a different way of seeing. On the one hand, seeing the object through provision of a sympathetic setting for it; on the other, seeing contemporary "modern " architecture in the context of the cultural continuum that has carried it to where it now momentarily hovers. The Museo di Castelvecchio was developed on the bombed ruins of the Scaligery family's medieval castle in Verona. First commissioned to redesign the oldest section of the building, Scarpa was later asked to complete the museum. The work is a monument to Scarpa's sensibilties about time and place. According to critic Nory Miller he "achieved an extraordinary coexistence involving architecture of different centuries, including this one ... without the crutches of neutral glass linkages, uniform materials, or historical references ... Each angle, shape, surface is chosen to engage the attention or participation of the visitor." Indeed, the symbiosis between Scarpa's work and the surviving fabric is such that differences are hardly apparent. With his infinitive capacity for fine detailing, he touched the past lightly; because he was so conscious of continuity the museum gives the "sense that construction has been supended". (After Donald Leslie Johnson and Donald Langmead.) Valeria Carullo is curator of the Robert Elwall Photographs Collection in the Royal Institute of British Architects, Paola Marini is director and Alba Di Lieto curator of the Musei d'Arte Monumenti of the city of Verona. Richard Bryant is one of the best-known architectural photographers, working all over the world. He is the only photographer with an honorary fellowship of the Royal Institute of British Architects.

Gio Ponti
10,00 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Während seiner langen und überaus produktiven Laufbahn war Gio Ponti (1891-1979) in vielen verschiedenen Funktionen tätig, als Architekt, Industriedesigner, Handwerker, Professor, Künstler und Publizist. Er war ein Allrounder, der mit seinen Entwürfen und mit der von ihm 1928 gegründeten und über viele Jahre geleiteten Architektur- und Designzeitschrift domus zum Inbegriff der italienischen Moderne wurde und über 50 Jahre lang maßgeblichen Einfluss auf das internationale Design nahm. Ob Arbeiterwohnblock, Villa, Universitätsgebäude, Kirche, Kunstmuseum oder Deckenleuchte, Freske, Vase und Bodenfliese, sein nach optischer und materieller Leichtigkeit strebender Gestaltungswille erfasste alles. Der 1958 nach Pontis Vorgaben erbaute 32-geschossige Pirelli Tower wurde zum Wahrzeichen Mailands, zahlreiche seiner Entwürfe wie der Sessel "Distex" (1953), der berühmte Stuhl "Superleggera" für Cassina (1957) oder das Conca-Besteck für Krupp-Italia wurden zu Designikonen. Pontis verspielter, bunter mediterraner Modernismus trug wesentlich zum sensationellen Erfolg des italienischen Designs der Nachkriegsjahre bei und möblierte die neu entstandene Kultur des Dolce Vita.Dieser Einführungsband zeichnet profund, präzise und pointiert Pontis lange, lange Laufbahn als Architekt, Gestalter, Vordenker und Vermittler nach, von seinen frühesten Majoliken und ersten Architekturprojekten in den 1920ern bis zu seinen letzten großen Meisterwerken, der Kathedrale von Taranto (1970) und dem North Building des Denver Art Museum (1971).

Strange Ending (eBook, ePUB)
2,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

"The poor devil's mouth was filled with feathers. An unconscious man with his mouth full of feathers wouldn't have had much chance of surviving, and this one didn't." The press gleefully dubbed it the 'Banquet Murder'. The murdered man, Hugh Newton, had apparently been making a sumptuous feast for two in his flat, before his own goose was cooked. Bobby Owen of the Yard is drawn to the cold case. Starting with the curious fact that the apartment building has experienced two break-ins since the murder, Bobby starts investigating the colourful, or faintly macabre, inhabitants. Elsewhere in London, Doreen Caine, cookery instructor, is excited that the case has been reopened. And further afield, a travel agency specializing in gastronomic tours comes under suspicion. It's a bouillabaise of a mystery, one of Punshon's finest, in which Bobby will discover whether retribution - if not revenge - is a dish best served cold. Strange Ending is the thirty-first novel in the Bobby Owen Mystery series, originally published in 1953. This new edition features a bonus Bobby Owen short story, and an introduction by crime fiction historian Curtis Evans. "What is distinction? … in the works of Mr. E.R. Punshon we salute it every time."--Dorothy L. Sayers

Edmund Hillary - A Biography: The Extraordinary...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Edmund Hillary - A Biography is the story of the New Zealand beekeeper who climbed Mount Everest. A man who, against expedition orders, drove his tractor to the South Pole; a man honored around the world for his pioneering climbs, yet who collapsed on more than one occasion on a mountain, and a man who gave so much to Nepal yet lost his family to its mountains.The author Michael Gill was a close friend of Hillary for nearly 50 years, accompanying him on many expeditions and becoming heavily involved in Hillary’s aid work, building schools and hospitals in the Himalayan region. Gill was granted access to a large archive of private papers and photos that were deposited in the Auckland museum after Hillary’s death in 2008. Building on this unpublished material, as well as his extensive personal experience, Michael Gill profiles a man whose life was shaped by both triumph and tragedy.Gill describes the uncertainties of the first 33 years of Hillary’s life, during which time he served in the Royal New Zealand Air Force during the Second World War, as well as the background to the first ascent of Mount Everest in 1953, when Hillary and Tenzing Norgay became the first climbers to reach the summit - a feat that brought the pair instant worldwide fame. He reveals the loving relationship Hillary had with his wife, Louise, in part, through their touching letters to each other. Her importance to him during their 22 years of marriage only underlines the horror of her death, along with that of their youngest daughter, Belinda, in a plane crash in 1975. Hillary eventually pulled out of his subsequent depression to continue his life’s work in the Himalayas.Affectionate, but scrupulously fair, Michael Gill has gone further than anyone before to reveal the humanity of this remarkable man in Edmund Hillary - A Biography. 1.

Nora & Kettle: A Paper Stars Novel , Hörbuch, D...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Fans of Eleanor & Park and The Book Thief will love this startling and heart-warming take on Peter Pan. What if Peter Pan was a homeless kid just trying to survive, and Wendy flew away for a really good reason? Seventeen-year-old Kettle has had his share of adversity. As an orphaned Japanese American struggling to make a life in the aftermath of an event in history not often referred to - the internment of Japanese Americans during World War II and the removal of children from orphanages for having "one drop of Japanese blood in them" - things are finally looking up. He has his hideout in an abandoned subway tunnel, a job, and his gang of Lost Boys. The world outside her oppressive brownstone calls to 18-year-old Nora - the privileged daughter of a controlling and violent civil rights lawyer who is building a compensation case for the interned Japanese Americans. But she is trapped, enduring abuse to protect her younger sister Frankie and wishing on the stars every night for things to change. For months, they've lived side by side, their paths crossing yet never meeting. But when Nora is nearly killed and her sister taken away, their worlds collide as Kettle, grief stricken at the loss of a friend, angrily pulls Nora from her window. In her honeyed eyes, Kettle sees sadness and suffering. In his, Nora sees the chance to take to the window and fly away. Set in 1953, Nora and Kettle explores the collision of two teenagers facing extraordinary hardship. Their meeting is inevitable, devastating, and ultimately healing. Their stories, a collection of events, are each on their own harmless. But together, one after the other, they change the world. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Haley Landers.

The Kennan Diaries , Hörbuch, Digital, 1, 1675min
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

A landmark collection, spanning 90 years of U.S. history, of the never-before-published diaries of George F. Kennan, America’s most famous diplomat. On a hot July afternoon in 1953, George F. Kennan descended the steps of the State Department building as a newly retired man. His career had been tumultuous: early postings in eastern Europe followed by Berlin in 1940-41 and Moscow in the last year of World War II. In 1946, the 42-year-old Kennan authored the "Long Telegram", a 5,500-word indictment of the Kremlin that became mandatory reading in Washington. A year later, in an article in Foreign Affairs, he outlined "containment", America’s guiding strategy in the Cold War. Yet what should have been the pinnacle of his career - an ambassadorship in Moscow in 1952 - was sabotaged by Kennan himself, deeply frustrated at his failure to ease the Cold War that he had helped launch. Yet, if it wasn’t the pinnacle, neither was it the capstone; over the next 50 years, Kennan would become the most respected foreign policy thinker of the 20th century, giving influential lectures, advising presidents, and authoring 20 books, winning two Pulitzer prizes and two National Book awards in the process.Through it all, Kennan kept a diary. Spanning a staggering 88 years and totaling over 8,000 pages, his journals brim with keen political and moral insights, philosophical ruminations, poetry, and vivid descriptions. In these pages, we see Kennan rambling through 1920s Europe as a college student, despairing for capitalism in the midst of the Depression, agonizing over the dilemmas of sex and marriage, becoming enchanted and then horrified by Soviet Russia, and developing into America’s foremost Soviet analyst. But it is the second half of this near-century-long record - the blossoming of Kennan the gifted author, wise counselor, and biting critic of the Vietnam and Iraq wars - that showcases this remarkable man at the height of his singular analytic 1.
