Über diesen Titel


Fine cloth copy in an equally fine dw. Particularly and surprisingly well-preserved; tight, bright, clean and especially sharp-cornered. Literally as new and still in the publisher's protective shrink-wrap.; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 259 pages; Physical description. : 259 p. : col. Ill. ; 29 cm. Subject: Adam, Robert, 1948-Classicism in architecture. Architecture - Great Britain - History - 20th century. Summary: 'Robert Adam: The Search for a Modern Classicism' examines the work of Robert Adam, director of the largest traditional architectural firm in Europe, ADAM Architecture. Turning to traditional design in the early 1970s, when it was unfashionable, Adam was granted a scholarship at the British School at Rome. In the following years his research, studies and writing backed up his growing portfolio of classical and traditional projects. He became one of the major spokesmen for the emerging body of traditional designers in the UK and abroad in the 1980s, defending and promoting traditional design in the face of savage opposition from the modernist architectural establishment. At the same time, he developed a unique position by drawing from the entire classical tradition - from ancient Greece to the 1930s - in a search for continuing relevance and modernity. Adam is now confident that traditional architecture and urbanism will continue to be recognised, if not actively supported, by the profession. He hopes that it will develop further to take a more prominent place as a significant participant in the improvement of the built environment and as a major challenge to the orthodoxy of modernism.


"Author Richard John's text is both erudite and illuminating; the captions for the hundreds of colour photos are similarly informative" Period Homes, November 2010

Staniland (Booksellers) was established in 1972. We occupy a small shop in the centre of a pretty market town in England's smallest county. We have two public rooms and stock antiquarian and modern books, mostly literature, philosophy, music, history, classics, architecture, applied arts, theology and topography. We have a good range of library sets in cloth and leather and, occasionally, fine bindings. We are members of the P.B.F.A., the largest booksellers' organisation in the U.K. The shop is usually open from 10.00 a.m. to 5.00 p.m., Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays; usually closed on Mondays and Tuesdays; appointments to view out of hours can almost always be made at a customer's convenience. Please telephone before setting out if you are travelling far as I cannot always get cover if attending an auction. We are always pleased to receive offers of books for sale.
