9780714838649: Venice: The City and Its Architecture

Examines the way in which Venice's unusual topography has influenced the form and type of the city's buildings. The text looks at the city's most important monuments such as the Rialto Bridge and the Basilica of San Marco, discusses important building types such as churches and palaces, and also looks at the urban fabric of the middle-class and working-class districts of the city. The buildings are set in their historical context and the text is illustrated with photographs, and paintings and prints by some of the artists who have recorded the canals and building of Venice, from Carpaccio and Bellini to Ruskin.

About the Author :

Goy is a practising architect and architectural historian.

Review :

"A handsome volume that far surpasses the routine tributes to "La Serenissima" that appear every season."-The New York Times "Published in 1997, this book immediately became the benchmark. A book that does full justice to the richness and density of the Venetian cityscape - and the design and choice of pictures are exemplary."-Rough Guide to Venice and the Veneto "Wonderfully illustrated."-The Evening Standard "Goy's beautifully designed Venice: The City and its Architecture... is a master-work... The next best thing to being in the Serenissima."-The Sunday Times "Be transported by... Venice: the City and its Architecture."-Building "ichard Goy's thorough history certainly fills a gap."-The Architect's Journal "Colour photographs, original plans, contemporary drawings and paintings by Venetian masters combine to reflect the visual wealth of an extraordinary city. With a detailed text, the book is a full exposition of the enduring attraction of one of the world's greatest and most beautiful cities."-The Good Book Guide "The visual wealth of the city is reflected in this sumptuous book. The text is scholarly yet accessible; the clear layout and beautiful photographs will appeal to lovers of art history, literature and students alike."-Irish Homes "[This book] offer[s] more than a standard overview... In its serious intent to instruct, historian/architect Goya... presents a history of the city neatly entwined with a history of the art... Pictures in the inside margins serve to highlight important points, and definitions appear in the margins as well. The spectacular photographs of the city, often taken at unusual angles, are about as far from typical touristy pictures as you can get."-Library Journal "Far more than just a visually lush coffee-table book... Elegant volume... Illustrating his extensive text with hundreds of photographs, drawings, paintings, and historical maps and plans."-Journal & Courier, IN "But surely irresistible is Venice, which has found the book to do it justice in Richard Goy's Venice: the City and its Architecture."-The Good Book Guide
