  • 2G 14 Building In The Mountains, International Review (2G International Architechture Review, 14)


    2G 14 Building in the Mountains. Rústica 30 x 23 cm 144 pp pages illustrated in colour text: english/español Quarterly ISSN: 1136·9647 The attention Swiss architecture has received in recent years has mainly focused on a small number of architects whose work has appeared on the covers of the specialized press. Extending throughout the Modern Movement, this is an architecture with its roots in a rich building tradition. In Graubünden, under the attentive gaze of maestro Peter Zumthor, a group of young architects educated at the ETH in Zurich, many of whom are former assistants in Zumthor’s studio, demonstrate the extraordinary quality of the architectonic production of this small German-speaking region of Switzerland.

  • 2G 18 Architecture & Energy (2G International Architecture Review, 18)


    Paperback 30 x 23 cm 144 pp color illustrated pages text: english/español Quarterly publication ISSN: 1136·9647 This issue investigates which energy architectures shape and express the world in which we live, and how they do so. Present and participate in the energy discourse -which is central to industrialized societies- and discover a world that had been hidden for a long time: the territory where energy is produced and transported. There are many reasons to address this issue at this time: negative reasons that reflect the state of the world, a state that -as we all know since the Rio summit- is due to energy policy decisions; and positive reasons that are related to a recent phenomenon: the new energy architecture. This -that is, the architecture of transformer stations, substations, hydroelectric plants, etc.- has increased in importance in the last decade. Several projects, mostly European, combine high architectural quality and the desire to “be seen” (aspects that are naturally related). Its new visibility recalls the “golden age” of the architecture of electricity that took place between 1900 and the end of World War II, and that is presented as a vigorous alternative to the anonymous

  • George Inness and the Visionary Landscape


    The essential book on the innovative American landscape painter, with a new preface by the author. A “rare, valuable and luminously illustrated monograph.” (Booklist)

    This eloquent examination of Inness’ most important paintings illuminates the artist’s philosophical and religious preoccupations. It provides an overview of his life and situates Inness within the contexts of key issues in American history, such as the Hudson River School, Transcendentalism, Swedenborgianism, and the work of William James. It explains for the first time how Inness treated landscape painting as a form of philosophical inquiry that could communicate his holistic belief in the unity of nature and spirit. “Bell’s handsomely illustrated, eloquently written, and well-documented text considerably expands previous scholarship. ..[A] first-rate study. Highly recommended.” (Choice)

  • Heroes: Mortals and Myths in Ancient Greece


    This handsome volume explores the integral role of heroes in ancient Greek art and culture. More than a hundred stunning statues, reliefs, vases, bronzes, coins, and gems drawn from major American and European collections highlight how heroes were represented, why they were important, and what encouraged individuals to seek them out.

    Featuring essays by leading authorities in the field, this book draws on recent archaeological, literary, and art historical research to explore such issues as gender, cult, and iconography, as well as overlooked aspects of familiar (Herakles, Achilles, and Odysseus) and unfamiliar heroes (Helen of Troy).


  • Hitonatsu


    Hitonatsu JP Oversized – January 1, 1995
    Japanese Edition by George Hashiguchi (Photographer)

    Photographer Hiroshi Sugimoto (Japanese, b.1948) is known for his explorations of the illusionary properties of photography. Born in Tokyo, Sugimoto initially studied politics and sociology at St. Paul’s University in Tokyo, but in 1970 he enrolled at the Art Center College of Art and Design in Los Angeles to study Fine Art. He subsequently moved to New York, where he established himself as a photographer interested in the representation of reality. Influenced by Dada and Surrealist techniques and aesthetics, Sugimoto photographed movie and opera houses, natural history dioramas, and wax figures, using long exposures to create eerie scenes with unnatural lighting. Sugimoto is also a practicing architect and has designed specific spaces to exhibit his photography; his interest in architecture is also evident in his numerous photographs of old buildings. His work is highly esteemed and has been shown at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Museum of Modern Art in New York and the Hara Museum of Contemporary Art in Tokyo, among other institutions. He has also received fellowships from the Guggenheim Foundation and the National Endowment for the Arts. Sugimoto currently divides his time between Tokyo and New York. He is represented by many galleries such as The Pace Gallery and the Gagosian Gallery.

  • Wagner Pinto Antena


    Wagner Pinto Antena Wagner Pinto’s artwork is developed through mixed and threatening forms of drawing and painting. Wagner’s research is based on elements and symbols of umbanda, candomblé, indigenous graphics, religious dressings, alchemical elements and folklore forest. These elements are translated through his pictorial vocabulary in the form of layers of lines, profusion of intense and contrasting colors, abstract symbols and graphs. His research has as objective creation of unknown pictures and the gestalt of shapes and colors. “Antena” compiles all his recent works and takes abstract art to a new level.
