Summary: The architecture firm Bohlin Cywinski Jackson believes that Â"the sensuality of place, the emotive qualities of materials, and the ability to give pleasure and insight, to comfort and to transport can produce humane and spirited architecture. Â" Whether designing corporate headquarters for Pixar Animation Studios, the Software Engineering Institute for Carnegie Mellon University, the new Apple Stores in New York, Chicago, and Tokyo, or the twelve wooded retreats shown in this book, the firm's architecture is alive to the subtleties of place, man-made or natural, and to the rich possibilities of materials and the means of construction. The houses in Arcadian Architecture are exquisitely crafted of wood and stone and other natural materials, and are all sited within beautiful wooded, mountainous, or lakeside locales, from New York State to Washington State, and from the woods of Connecticut to the mountains of Montana. One of the highlights of this book is that it publishes, for the first time, the extraordinary, huge, extremely private and secluded, residential complex in Washington State that was built for Bill and Melinda Gates. Each house is presented on at least thirty pages, and is depicted by sumptuous new color photography, richly detailed conceptual sketches, presentation drawings, and construction documents.

Reseña del editor:

Il volume, di circa 500 pagine, è dedicato allo studio di progettazione americano Bohlin Cywinski Jackson, noto in tutto il mondo per una filosofia di pensiero rigorosa che fa dell'attenzione per i dettagli, il rispetto per i luoghi e la ricerca dei materiali dei fondamenti irrinunciabili per una visione armonica della natura che sveli l'essenza più profonda delle cose. Sia nel caso della progettazione degli uffici centrali dei Pixar Animation Studios, dei nuovi Apple Stores di New York, Chicago e Tokyo, sia nel caso della progettazione delle abitazioni in legno illustrate in questo libro, l'architettura dello studio è ben consapevole delle capacità del luogo, naturale o artificiale, e delle vaste possibilità dei materiali e dei mezzi di costruzione. Attraverso fotografie, ampie descrizioni e la riproduzione dei progetti, vengono documentati 12 dei più importanti progetti per abitazioni private realizzati dalla studio a partire dagli anni '70 nel nord degli Stati Uniti. Le case di Bohlin Cywinski Jackson, che in queste pagine emergono in tutta loro straordinarietà, sono da considerarsi fra le migliori realizzate negli ultimi anni per la qualità dei materiali naturali utilizzati, la sensibilità nei confronti dei luoghi e delle persone, la semplicità delle forme e la profondità delle idee.
