Paris: An Architectural History [Englisch] [Gebundene Ausgabe]

Anthony Sutcliffe


Erhältlich bei diesen Anbietern.



Kurzbeschreibung

Oktober 1993
Paris's reputation as one of the most beautiful capital cities in the world is long-standing, and owes much of its impact to the harmonious architecture. In this illustrated book, the author examines the origins and development of Paris and attempts to identify exactly how that architectural harmony has been achieved. The emphasis of the book is on street architecture, but Sutcliffe also discusses major buildings in relationship to their influence on the city as a whole. The persistence of visual harmony is linked to the classical tradition of French design created in the 17th Century, but extensive consideration is also given to the effect of building regulations, the property market, and the training and mentality of French architects on the creation of the Parisian landscape. The author also looks at the various periods of French history in which departure from the familiar architectural traditions was threatened - the 1790s, for example, and the Second Empire. He concludes by examining some of the most recent architectural features that have been built in Paris since the 1970s, and the result is a fascinating urban history which fully explains Paris's origins and growth.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Fascinating! 1. Juli 2009
Von Pierre Gauthier - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
This book presents a fascinating historical survey of Parisian architecture over the centuries.

The author clearly loves Paris and demonstrates without any pomposity how well he knows it.

He does not shy from giving his opinion which spices up the book and prevents it from being academic or strictly descriptive.

One should be aware however that the city's history or that of its urban development are not really expounded here and thus that a certain level of previous knowledge is required to fully appreciate the book.

By the same token, this is by no means a travel guide but rather a work that will allow Paris connoisseurs to further their understanding of the city's architecture and its evolution.
