Red. Architecture in Monochrome

Производитель: "Phaidon Press"

A visual exploration of red`s vivid role in global architecture over the centuries. From the earliest structures to today`s contemporary creations, red has been one of the most traditional, and, at the same time, most cutting-edge, colors in the built world. Through stunning photography with informative text, you can explore more than 150 of the most striking buildings in existence - from the deep red and stainless steel of LA`s Petersen Automotive Museum to Moscow`s red-brick State Museum and beyond. Visual pairings juxtapose striking works in a fresh, new approach to looking at and understanding architecture, including projects by some of the best architects of the twentieth and twenty first centuries. From the publisher of Black: Architecture in Monochrome.

Phaidon Press

Phaidon Press is one of the leading publishers of books on the visual arts, including art, architecture, photography, and design worldwide. Competitors include other major art publishers such as Taschen, Abbeville Publishing Group (Abbeville Press, Inc.), Harry N. Abrams, Inc., Thames & Hudson, and Rizzoli.

Phaidon was founded in Vienna, Austria, in 1923 by Dr Bela Horowiz and Ludwig Goldscheider, with the objective of delivering high-quality books at affordable prices. They were able to achieve this as pioneers of the international co-edition and with large print-runs. Their first titles were not art books, but books on literature, philosophy and history. Phaidon's large format art books first emerged in 1936 with high-quality plates on Van Gogh, Botticelli, and the French Impressionists.

The occupation of the Nazis in Vienna forced the company to move to England. After the war, Phaidon launched a program of both popular and scholarly art book publishing. This included the critical catalogue of drawings in the royal collection at Windsor Castle and the "pocket" series of art history texts (now known as the Arts and Letters series).

In 1950, Phaidon published "The Story of Art" — a one volume survey of the history of art by renowned scholar Ernst Gombrich. Since then it has become one of the best-selling art books in history, selling a total of more than 7 million copies in 16 English-language editions and in translation in more than 30 other languages.

The company changed ownership several times in the 1970s and 1980s, until being acquired by the present owner, Richard Schlagman, in 1990.

In 2006, Phaidon entered the cookbook business by publishing their English translation of the Italian cookbook "Il cucchiaio d'argento" ("The Silver Spoon"); due to the this book's success in the Anglophone markets, it was later released in French and German editions and followed up by several other cookbook releases.

Noteworthy recent titles have included:
* "Century (book)"
* "The Art Book"
* "The Phaidon Atlas of Contemporary World Architecture"
* "10x10" and the follow-up "10x10_2" (architecture)
* "Area" (graphic design)
* "The Silver Spoon"
* "1080 Recipes" by Spanish mother and daughter team Simone and Ines Ortega
* "Wallpaper* City Guides", created by Wallpaper* magazine. Twenty guides were released in 2006 and another 40 are being published in 2007
* ""
* "The Cream Series (Cream, Fresh Cream, Cream 3, Ice Cream)

Phaidon is also well-known for "The Contemporary Artists Series", which since 1995 has published monographs on important and emerging contemporary artists.

Today, Phaidon's headquarters are in London, with offices in New York, Paris, Berlin, Milan and Tokyo. The company publishes in English, French, German, Italian, Spanish, and Japanese.

After the death of Alan Fletcher (graphic designer) the art direction of the publisher is now curated by Sonya Dyakova and Julia Hasting.
