              A guide to the styles or an architectural dictionary, though it contains elements of all three. It helps to 'come to grips with how things feel to us when we stand before them, with how architecture affects us emotionally as well as intellectually' - with its impact on our lives.

              An exhilarating, splendidly illustrated, entirely new look at the history of baseball: told through the stories of the vibrant and ever-changing ballparks where the game was and is staged, by the Pulitzer Prize-winning architectural critic. From the earliest corrals of the mid-18...00s (Union Grounds in Brooklyn was a saloon in the open air ), to the much mourned parks of the early 1900s (Detroit's Tiger Stadium, Cincinnati's Palace of the Fans), to the stadiums we fill today, Paul Goldberger makes clear the inextricable bond between the American city and America's favorite pastime. In the changing locations and architecture of our ballparks, Goldberger reveals the manifestations of a changing society: the earliest ballparks evoked Victorian society in the accommodations--bleachers for the riffraff, grandstands for the middle-class; the concrete donuts of the 1950s and 60s made plain television's grip on the public's attention and the new need for stadiums that could also accommodate football; and more recent ballparks, like Baltimore's Camden Yards, signal a new way forward for stadium design and for baseball's role in urban development. Throughout, Goldberger shows us the ways in which baseball's history--its concurrent rise with the railway system, the origins of the American and National Leagues, the first stolen base--is clued into the important architectural, material, engineering, and site details and requirements that shaped our most beloved stadiums. A fascinating, exuberant ode to the Edens at the heart of our cities--where dreams are as limitless as the outfields.

              Communitas stands in a class by itself: a fresh and original theoretic contribution to the art of building cities. Such a book does not appear often... a witty, penetrating, provocative and, above all, ... a wise book; for it deals with the underlying values and purposes, politic...al and moral, on which planning of any sort must be based...'Lewis Mumford

              This book of dream homes in and around Beverly Hills, Santa Barbara and Malibu takes readers inside contemporary castles and chalets, modern and classical manors of 15,000 to 20,000 square feet, designed and built in collaboration with clients including Kenny G, Sugar Ray Leonard..., Keyshawn Johnson, Eddie Murphy and Wayne Gretzky. Richard Landry writes of his firm's work, In a world filled with dreams, it is exciting to create residential estates that are directly inspired by the unique vision of our clients. Whether it is a contemporary compound, a French chateau, an Italian villa, an English manor or a NeoClassical estate, each Landry project shows an exquisite attention to details and a keen understanding of the client's preferences and lifestyle. The firm's creativity within the influence of architectural precedents and its inventiveness within contemporary parameters show a unique aptitude that has attracted the attention of America's movers and shakers, and will be a great pleasure to armchair designers, builders and decorators. With a foreword by the acclaimed New Yorker architecture critic Paul Goldberger, an introduction by Michael Webb, an essay by Landry himself and over 450 color photographs and drawings that convey the unparalleled versatility and the inspired vision of the Landry Design Group, Modern to Classic is a show-stopper in the world of architectural monographs, welcoming the reader behind the gates of some of today's most lavish residential estates.
