Interior Spaces Designed by Architects

Edited by Barclay F Gordon

Copyright 1974

Published by McGraw-Hill Book Company (And Architectural Record Book)

Hardcover

230 pp

From the forward:

Rooted deep in the architect’s training and self image is the conviction that he is a “problem solver” and also that interior and exterior are simply words used to describe opposite sides of the same wall. The design problems awaiting solution on both sides of the wall, he argues, are sometimes different but they are subject to the same kind of functional analysis and respond to the same rules of harmony and visual order. That, in simplied form, has been the essence of the “architectural interior” and the architect’s justification for demanding a visual reconciliation between interior and exterior design.

… The reader who thumbs these pages will find other design messages aplenty — design messages that in combination will ultimately give the interios of the ‘70s as distinctive a look as the interiors of the ‘30s. But more fundamental than the style it produces is the architect’s basic approach to design. And as long as he continues to be a problem-solver, he will have a special place in the business of interior design and his work will merit serious study. This volume collects between its covers what we believe is the most varied and comprehensive group of architectural interiors published to date and gives these handsome space the study that their excellence has rightfully earned them.

Some loss to the dust jacket. Ink on the front end page. Some color images, mostly BW images. Interior is in good condition. All vintage items are sold as is, final sale.
