Andrew Alpern's Labor of Love 27. Dezember 2001
Von saskatoonguy - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
Candela and Carpenter were two of New York's most noted architects of the inter-war era, specializing in luxury apartment buildings. Architectural historian Andrew Alpern has assembled a reference text of their buildings, organized in geographic sequence. In this book, a typical building has two pages dedicated to it. One page consists of a floor plan, and the facing page has a photo or rendering of the exterior, combined with a one-to-six sentence description. Also, there are several brief essays at the beginning of the book.
I enjoyed this volume, which Alpern has directed at a very narrow segment of readers, but it's not for everyone. This is a volume for architectural enthusiasts who are intrigued by room arrangements. Others might be better served by a book broader in scope (including some by this same author).

Alpern's best work yet 4. November 2001
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Alpern has written several books about New York apartment buildings and this is his best. This time he focuses exclusively on the genius of two ground-breaking designers, James Carpenter and Rosario Candela. If you are not adept at reading floor plans (of which there are many), it might not be immediately obvious what defines the genius of these two architects. It is the innovation of their layouts and the graciousness of their spaces that made apartment house living so desireable, allowing for the migration from town house to apartment building. Regardless, everyone will still enjoy the exterior and interior views of these great New York buildings and get a sense of how the rich really live. Alpern raises our awareness of the apartment house type in the City to a higher level, just as others had focused on the greatness of NYC's commercial structures.
Each building is described in detail and there is some chatty material about who lived where, who bought what, and maybe a little more of that would have added fun to the book. There is a chronology of all the buildings and I would have liked to have seen thumbnail pictures of the buildings next to the timeline, since the book is organized geographically. It is otherwise an excellent and elegant study of the complete apartment house works of these two great designers.

Very good but could have provided better value for money 6. Juli 2008
Von OzMerry - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
Alpern continues with the format used in his "New York's Fabulous Luxury Apartments", which serves the subject matter well. This new volume is also a worthwhile extension of the earlier work for those interested in New York apartment buildings, with very little overlap. However, considering the fairly high price of this book, it would have been nice to see included current photos of at least some of the apartment buildings as they appear today. This would also have provided another level of the always fascinating "then and now" element already included in the book, where illustrations were included depicting what some of the apartment buildings replaced. This was an excellent opportunity missed, perhaps, to provide an amazing encapsulation of the ever-changing and yet at the same time remarkably un-changing landscape of New York City, without detracting from the intended subject of the book. Overall, though, a very agreeable and interesting reference work.

Grand New York 30. August 2005
Von Shannon Deason - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Let me first say that I loved the period black and white photos of the buildings, I also appreciated the fact that all of the buildings mentioned came with requisite photos, that is a must in book of this sort. I really didn't know that much about these buildings nor the architects so this book gave me a real education, I came away more knowledged and very impressed. The attention to detail the architects employed in these buildings is amazing and the fact that so many are still extant is a tribute to the artistry and talent that went into designing and building them and obviously contempory wealthy apartment seekers appreciate these attributes or else we all know these buildings would have been pulled down long ago, just like so many of the Gilded Age mansions they replaced. This publishing house puts out such finely crafted books and this one does not disappoint, I highly recommend it.

NYC Luxury Living For The Rest Of Us 27. August 2012
Von Aleks Stojanovic - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
I have owned the first edition of this book for many years and it has become a favorite in my library of Acanthus Press and other architectural books. The compilation of Candela and Carpenter apartment houses in New York City is frequently my " go-to" book at bedtime. As others have noted, it is floor plan intensive... and that is exactly what I like about it. If you're someone who sought out house plan magazines in grocery stores because you liked to study the arrangement of rooms, I'd encourage you to buy this book. Keep in mind, the arrangements reflect the lifestyle of well-heeled people at the time that Candela and Carpenter were designing... the late 1800s through the 1930s or so. Don't look for media rooms, family rooms, or expansive and innovative kitchen layouts. What you will find are elegantly and intelligently ordered accommodations that addressed the social, private, and service needs of well-to-do apartment dwellers. Many notable families conceded single family townhouses for multi-family housing under one roof in what was still a very more formal era. One of my favorite discoveries was the inclusion of spacious entrance galleries to receive guests instead of an awkward, cramped vestibule or foyer. Also take particular note of how domestics in household service fit into the traffic patterns and privacies of these residences. I have also come across apartments featured in this book and others by Alpern in new books showcasing current architects. It was fascinating to see how these adept preofessionals updated the individual apartments to meet modern needs while respecting the integrity of the original design.
