Les informations fournies dans la section « Synopsis » peuvent faire référence à une autre édition de ce titre.
This book emphasises details in the work of Greene & Greene as well as their gestalt design philosophy (designing house, furniture, decorative arts) and the important influences on their work. As was the case with their work, the author pulls together disparate influences such as the Arts & Crafts movement, Japanese architecture and philosophy, Chinese furniture and the environment and topography of California (a sometimes overlooked but crucial element). The three main chapters address history and influences; details in the broader view: architecture and unifying themes; and, details in the micro view: furniture and interiors (which were indistinguishable from furniture). Numerous new photographs together with historical photos, provides context and perspective.Biographie de l'auteur :
