Pierre Chareau: Designer and Architect (trilingual edition)

£7.99

Product description

This book is in very good condition, with only slight foxing to the top of the spine. Otherwise, all pages and the cover are clean and intact. Includes numerous photographs in black and white and colour and black and white illustrations. Trilingual edition. Text in French, English and German.

La Maison de Verre (House of Glass) in Paris by Pierre Chareau (1883-1950) has become a Mecca for contemporary designers and architects. Upon its completion in the 30s, the facade of glass bricks and numerous items of movable built-in furniture caused a furore. The international press compared it to the courtyard houses of Morrish Andalusia, a ship or even an Eskimo igloo. Today it is regarded as a classic. This unique achievement in the history of architecture is portrayed here in detail, along with the other houses, furniture, designs and projects by Pierre Chareau. Here, for the first time his complete works are accessible to a wide readership.
