9780714837123: Voysey, C.F.A.

C. F. A. Voysey was one of the most renowned British architects from the 1890s until the outbreak of the First World War. His white-rendered houses with stone window-dressings and sweeping slate roofs combined clarity and simplicity with a sensual appreciation of natural materials. However, it was his conviction that no detail of a house was too small to deserve the attention of its architect which led him to design everything from the plan of the garden to the handles on the kitchen-dresser.
Voysey's belief that the house should embody 'Quietness in a storm, Economy of upkeep, Evidence of Protection, Harmony with surroundings, Absence of dark passages' placed him at the heart of the Arts and Crafts Movement, while the elongated simplicity of his furniture together with the fluid, undulating curves of his decorative designs made him a formative influence on Charles Rennie Mackintosh, Henry van de Velde and the Art Nouveau style.
During the 1890s Voysey's reputation spread across Europe and America, only to be revived in the 1930s by John Betjeman, Nikolaus Pevsner and others in Britain, when he was hailed as a precursor of the Modern Movement. He was awarded the RIBA Gold Medal in 1940 at the age of eighty-three.
This monograph is illustrated with photographs specially commissioned from the photographer Martin Charles. Placed throughout the text, they form a comprehensive visual record of Voysey's work, as well as individual, detailed pictorial accounts of his major houses.

Descripción Phaidon Press Ltd, United Kingdom, 1997. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. New edition. Language: English . Brand New Book. From the 1890s until the outbreak of World War I, C F A Voysey (1857-1914) was one of the most successful and renowned British Arts and Crafts architects. His elegant, white-rendered houses with stone window dressings and sweeping green-slate roofs combined clarity with a sensual appreciation of natural materials. A designer of all things domestic, as well as an architect, he was often involved in every aspect of a house s interior from wallpaper, curtains and furniture to fire grates. Moreover, the fluid curves of his decorative designs and the elongated simplicity of his furniture prove him to be a vital historical link between the Arts and Crafts and the Modern movements. The first definitive account of Voysey s architectural career, this book combines contemporary sources - photographs, quotations, original wallpaper designs and watercolour perspectives - with specially commissioned photography of his houses.
