Modernist Escapes

An Architectural Travel Guide

ISBN: 9783791386348 (HB - E)

Modernist fans will want to dive right into the pages of this guide to remarkable buildings designed by famous architects - from Alvar Aalto to Charlie Zehnder. The 36 unique structures included here span the globe and cover the full spectrum of modernist principles from Brutalist to Bauhaus. Author Stefi Orazi has chosen the buildings because they are all open for visiting, with some even available for overnight stays. Full-colour photographs of the exterior and interiors of each building highlight incredible details such as the pebbled lobby and bar of Gio Ponti's Hotel Paro dei Principi in Naples, Italy, or the luxurious terrazzo, marble, and gold leaf accents in Patrick Gwynne's family villa, Homewood, in Surrey, England. Who wouldn't want to spend the night in Valentina Audrito's villa in the Balinese jungle or look out over the Wingecarribee River gorge in Harry Seidler's residential masterpiece in Joadja, New South Wales? Spectacular photographs of each building are accompanied by an informative text which offers visitor information and insights into the building's history. Whether you're looking for a unique holiday experience or a global overview of Modernist architecture, Modernist Escapes stylishly documents these unforgettable spaces.
