Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Blick auf die (Sozial-)Geschichte Venedigs aus der Sicht einer Architektin. Guilia Foscari geht dabei nicht chronologisch oder architekturhistorisch vor. Vielmehr nimmt sie sich nacheinander verschiedene Elemente venezianischer Architektur vor: Das Fenster, die Treppe usw. Sie beschreibt ihre Entwicklung als Spiegel der Entwicklung der venezianischen Gesellschaft. Weitgehend auch für Nicht-Historiker und Nicht-Architekten verständlich, faktenreich und außerdem gut bebildert und illustriert. Nachteil: Dank des kleinen Formats passt das Buch zwar in die Hosentasche. Doch dadurch sind Schrift und Abbildungen sehr klein. Das Buch verlangt nach großem Format!

HASH(0x9abdaab0) von 5 Sternen Excellent Read! 8. April 2015
Von C. S. Curtiss - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This is an excellent read and very unique survey on Venice. I could not recommend it more highly and bought it originally during the opening of the Venice Architectural Biennale in 2014. This book uses the guiding theme established by Rem Koolhaas (Curator of the Venice Architectural Biennale in 2014) "Elements of Architecture" and focuses that theme just on Venice in a way that is visually captivating and stimulating but also with impressive original writing and ideas. The book is sizable around 400 pages, but I still carried it with me in hand as I walked around Venice so you can use it as a sort of guide but I have also delved into it further when I was back home with more time to read it closely. I thoroughly enjoyed it and this should be done with many cities in the world !
HASH(0x9abe0084) von 5 Sternen Beautiful Images & Interesting Text 28. Februar 2016
Von Seven Hills - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This book respects Venice's uniqueness, not by following a chronological format, but by being divided into architectural elements, such as facade, stair, floor, roof and balcony. For example, Foscari explains how staircases could be symbols of wealth, a concept today's visitors may not consider, and how floors and walls had to flex to survive in Venice's marshy, often "man-reinforced" soil, using pounded-in wooden pilings. Both the text and the numerous color images are captivating.

HASH(0x9abe00e4) von 5 Sternen Venice seen uniquely in its finer points. 15. Mai 2015
Von Curious - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I haven't yet finished the book, but the material, though perhaps a bit in small print for many is still abundant and not at all the fare of tourist books.
Most people may just be interested in the history of families owning or taking over the houses, or perhaps might want to know a history of construction logistics that has been noted for Ca Pescaro at the most.
This work shows various interesting detail options and give rather interesting information about the unique consequences of the Venetian Republic in both its location and its philosophy.
Those interested in the compromises of building housing on a loamy semi-solid base and the thinner walls and altered construction techniques that compensate for possibly shifting 'foundations' that are based on wood pole plantings to make some attempt at a fixed base may find interesting points in construction.
Similarly, the small areas of land available dictated external stairways and central courts rather than yards as well as very narrow passages due to high population density and scarce housing room.
Venice might well have become a setting for the tenements seen in NYC in the early Twentieth Century but for the inability to build more than 4 stories on the material forming the foundations available.
Additional points concern the need for personal housing and business to often be share the same building due to spatial concerns.
Further, the details noted show the need to compromise style to show some individuality while at the same time having a quasi-proletarian appearance. Style variety was limited to certain lesser degrees of display for even those of the upper crust with the exception of the Churches, Scuola and the Doge's Palace.
Architectural design was intended to be flexible and occasionally a bit unique, but within somewhat rigid tolerances of what the collective government felt was not overly showy.
Most books show the pictures of some more prominent houses or Churches, but the nature of different solutions to roofing, entryways or floors is bypassed. Some may feel too much attention is given to these in this work, but it certainly allows somebody seeking details to get the full breadth of variations or to skip past these details.
A clear miss are the maps at the end of the work. The small medallions that contain various numbers, these seemingly intending to highlight locations within the pages of the work are quite difficult to read. The size of the print and the coloration make for uncertain discrimination of what highlight is where.
Another area for more comment might have been with respect to construction about the Jewish Ghetto, mostly housing converted from former use and not either brilliantly designed, nor carefully reworked. The buildings may not have much in particular to say about the best of Venetian Architecture, but they do speak, along with the Synagogues in that district, to the signifcant historical concerns of that area and of the Jewish minority of the city. Having virtually no text to discuss this area seems to show some missing element.
