New Releases from Rizzoli

Monday, April 7, 2014

Following my review of Allan Greenberg: Classical Architect, the kind folks at Rizzoli (the book's publisher) have continued to keep me in the loop of design driven new releases. Two such titles are now on my bookshelf and used as go-to reference guides....  BARN: Preservation and Adaptation, The Evolution of a Vernacular Icon (lower left) and How to Read Houses: A Crash Course in Domestic Architecture (lower right).

BARN: Preservation and Adaption is a revised hardcover edition from its original 2003 printing. The content explores the reinterpretation of this timeless design from its practical beginnings to the choice of a 21st century home. The pages are filled with detailed photographs documenting early & current designs. The book's release corresponds with the premier of the PBS's Barnstruck, a series that highlights the barn saving work of The New Jersey Barn Company. Watch the video below for more....

How to Read Houses is almost a pocket size resource of sorts, to be carried with and used in determining period detailed designs when confronted with important architecture. Styles discussed range from historic to contemporary in nature. The author, Will Jones, has translated his hands-on construction experience into a journalism career, publishing a number of articles and books dealing with architecturally significant subjects.
