Pictures

By Michael Sutton, Architect

In English. Soft cover, 29X32 cm, 276 pp., ill.: pictures, architectural drawings; net weight 2200 gr. Michael Sutton - A long life briefly In helping to assemble this book which includes most of my work over the past sixty years, I’m left with one overriding emotion – gratitude. For so many things – people (family, friends, clients), so many circumstances (luck, if you will) – that have helped and guided me through a long and happy life. In a way luck started from birth (2.6.1928). ..................................................................................... Even before university I had been working for Steffen Ahrends, who has remained a big influence on my work. He was a product of the famous Bauhaus and had to flee Nazi Germany before the war. His insistence on honest materials, basic simplicity, and good proportions based on human scale, remained with me. Wits University (1951 to 1956) was a great experience. The help and kindness of fellow students, lecturers and Professor Fassler made it possible for me to graduate easily. In 1956 I shared a flat with Tom Russell, then a film and music critic on The Star. Since then and off-and-on for neigh on 60 years, he has remained my best friend, companion – and architectural critic. We built or renovated at least 7 houses together. In 1961 Tom persuaded me to start on my own – up till then I had only occasional small commissions from friends. My practice had its ups and downs like all businesses. First partner was John Griffiths whom I knew in Steffen’s office. Then came David Walker who was a great help in running the office, organizing and supervising building work thus leaving me time for design work. His command of the office allowed me to travel overseas often, including 6 months inIndia and Nepal in 1971 and many months at a time in Greece. In the sixties, after a failed two-year marriage, I belatedly enjoyed sowing a few wild oats. It was the time of the hippy - flower power - Timothy Leary - joss sticks - "joints" - yoga. I joined three Spanish friends in India in spite of only a 72 hour transit visa and an airport sign "No Dogs and South Africans allowed". Then I went on my own following a sadhu on foot, train or bus from Kashmir to Rajasthan, sleeping in caves, shrines, on station platforms. Tragedy struck when my very dear Spanish friend ended his life in Delhi. I came to Greece because Tom, as a journalist, had had enough of apartheid politics in South Africa and had emigrated. His criticism of the junta in Greece landed him in trouble. He fled to Cyprus taking his caique yacht with him. When he decided to sell it I jumped at the chance. "Sofia" became my new love. A year later – drama! The day after we sailed out of Kyrenia harbour every boat there was sunk by the invading Turks. That was in July 1974. Luck, again. I spent more and more time on "Sofia" exploring the islands of Greece, fascinated and inspired by their beautiful architecture. Then came one commission after another to design houses for wonderful Greek clients. The office in South Africa closed when David with his family emigrated to Australia. In 2000 Tom and I returned to the new South Africa. We built a lovely house in Stanford which we enjoyed but we missed Greece. Five years later we moved back. "My architectural philosophy (or whatever you call it) is best stated by Sri Lankan architect, Geoffrey Bawa: I have always enjoyed seeing buildings but seldom enjoyed explanations about them – as I feel, with others, that architecture cannot be totally explained but must be experienced … this book includes most of my work over the past sixty years…" - The author. . . ================================================================== IMPORTANT: The shipping cost is an important parameter of this order; it is in NOT included in the price and depends on the actual weight and destination; you will have to approve it after the confirmation of the order.

Crete 1913-2013: Architectonike kai poleodomia meta ten Henose

By Collective

[Crete 1913-2013: Architecture and City-Planning After the Union with Mainland Greece] After the Unification of Crete with Greece in 1913 an architectural challenge emerged: the architects had to preserve the rich historical past - as it was crystallized in byzantine, venetian and ottoman castles, monuments and buildings - and also to cover the needs of the 20th century with contemporary houses, hotels, and public buildings. This book is an illustrated narrative of this procedure: the most part of it is pictures and architectural drawings. In greek.

HELLENISCHE RENAISSANCE - The Architecture of Theophil Hansen (1813-1891)

By M.Z. Kassimate & G.A. Panetsos (eds.)

Bilingual (Greek-English) illustrated edition. Soft cover, 27Χ21 cm, 368 pp., ill.: more than 180 original architectural drawings, most of them unpublished; net weight 1490 gr. Theophilus Hansen (1813-1891) was born and educated in Copenhagen. During the nine-year stay in Athens (1837-1846) he composed the architectural language that characterized Athens in the 19th century, i.e. essentially he was the main creator of the Athenian Neoclassicism. In 1859 he conceived the so-called "Athens Trilogy" -  the complex of buildings of the University, the Academy of Athens and the National Library - which is the most important architectural ensemble of the country after the Acropolis. He also designed the Observatory, the Zappeion Palace, etc. At the same time, he excelled in Vienna, where he designed a series of buildings, such as Parliament, the Academy of Fine Arts, the Greek Church, the Hall of the Friends of Music, etc. The work of Th. Hansen is characterised by an architectural idiom with "retroactive" characteristics, which he himself called «Hellenische Renaissance» (Greek Renaissance).

Astike kai laike katoikia sten hellenike paradosi

By C.E. Ecomomou

[Urban and Folk Houses in Greek Tradition] In greek. Soft cover, 29 cm, 368 pp., ill. H αστική και λαϊκή παραδοσιακή κατοικία στον ελληνικό χώρο έχει την αφετηρία της στην κλαδόπλεχτη κυκλική καλύβα, η οποία αποτέλεσε την πρώτη κατοικία του ανθρώπου, που μέχρι πριν μερικές δεκαετίες αναπτυσσόταν σε πεδιάδες και σε περιοχές με χαμηλό υψόμετρο. Συνέχεια αυτής, κατά τη γνώμη μας, αποτέλεσε η ορθογώνια στενομέτωπη και η πλατυμέτωπη κατοικία με μεγάλη ποικιλία τύπων και μορφών, των οποίων η διαδρομή καταγράφεται από την αρχαιότητα, την ελληνιστική και ρωμαϊκή εποχή έως την οθωμανική κατάκτηση. Ακολούθως, η έρευνα επικεντρώνεται στην αστική και λαϊκή παραδοσιακή κατοικία του 18ου και 19ου αιώνα, της οποίας σχετικά μεγάλος αριθμός παραδειγμάτων έχει διασωθεί. Παράλληλα, από το τέλος του πρώτου τρίτου του 19ου αιώνα, αναπτύσσεται στα μεγάλα αστικά κέντρα η νεοκλασική κατοικία, που συνυπάρχει με την αντίστοιχη παραδοσιακή για μερικές δεκαετίες και την επηρεάζει σε επιμέρους στοιχεία, χωρίς η πρώτη να αποτελεί αντικείμενο του παρόντος έργου. Στα αστικά κέντρα η παραδοσιακή κατοικία απαντάται σε ορισμένες συνοικίες, οι οποίες έχουν αναπλαστεί σχετικά πρόσφατα (το Βαρούσι στα Τρίκαλα, η Καργιώτισσα στη Βέροια, ο Ντούλτσος στην Καστοριά, η παλιά πόλη της Ξάνθης). Νοτιότερα, στην Πελοπόννησο, μεμονωμένοι Πύργοι ή ομάδες Πύργων (Μάνη) έχουν επίσης αποκατασταθεί. Στις αγροτικές περιοχές η λαϊκή παραδοσιακή κατοικία έχει αντικατασταθεί από «σύγχρονες κατοικίες» και μόνο σε μεμονωμένες περιπτώσεις ή σε απομακρυσμένους οικισμούς διασώζονται αυθεντικές μορφές που και αυτές τείνουν να εκλείψουν λόγω της εγκατάλειψής τους. Στο παρόν έργο οι αστικές κατοικίες διάφορων ελλαδικών περιοχών υποβάλλονται σε εκτενείς συγκριτικές παρατηρήσεις. ============================================================== IMPORTANT: The shipping cost estimated by the system covers books weighing up to 750 gr.; a surcharge depending on the actual weight and destination applies for heavier books.
