JUl/aug new titles Lead titleS Alberto Pinto: World Interiors Alberto Pinto ISBN 9782080200938 Flammarion Hardback: 256 pages Aug 2011 RM 242.55 An invitation to escape the everyday—to explore the world of Alberto Pinto where elegance, refinement, and luxury combine with his eclectic style to create innovative and original interiors. This sumptuous and richly illustrated book features celebrated designer Alberto Pinto’s most recent interiors. Bringing fresh inspiration to established design principles, Pinto excels at creating a perfect harmony of volume and space. In Alberto Pinto: Horizons, the designer brings together an unprecedented range of styles; he continues to defy ascribed categories and dismiss common preconceptions by translating his own style into each interior, according to the site, his client’s tastes, and his own flair for creativity. With an unobstructed view of the white sand beach and turquoise water, a sprawling apartment in the exclusive Ipanema enclave of Rio de Janiero is decorated in subdued sand tones, punctuated by animal prints and vibrant works of modern art. The interior of a classical, orientalist residence in Kuwait reveals elaborate detail in the marble, tile, and wood details, while more modern spaces are furnished predominantly in black and white with judiciously-placed accents in red. The details in a Monaco apartment subtly remind us that the home is perched above the Mediterranean Sea, while an ornate white and blue residence in New York is distinctly European in its rich use of antique furniture, ceramics, and ornate moldings. Other striking and sublime spaces include a palace in Riyadh, a home in Santa Rita, as well as grand yachts and private jets. Pinto’s own workshop in Paris, where his exceptional furniture and tableware can be purchased, is also featured.

1000x European Architecture ISBN 9783037680872 Braun Hardback: 1024 pages Aug 2011 RM441.00 Since the release of 1000 x European Architecture in 2006, the world of architecture has gone through some major changes: in the midst of a seemingly unstoppable building boom the banking crisis descended on the world economy in 2008, but since 2010 a spirit of optimism has taken hold again. A completely new impact for the world of architecture, which is gaining in significance, is the Web 2.0 and the rapidly increasing influence of social media. The vehement debates about style at the end of the 20th century have faded away, instead the questions of quality in execution, valence of the material and especially ecological sustainability have moved to the foreground of the discussions. The new edition of the bestseller 1000 x European Architecture presents the European building culture during this tumultuous time with 1000 new projects from the last five years.

Mughal Architecture and Gardens George Michell and Amit Pasricha ISBN 9781851496709 Antique Collectors’ Club Hardback: 402 pages Aug 2011 RM269.00

Mughal Architecture & Gardens gives an insight into what is undoubtedly one of the most impressive groups of monuments and gardens ever to be ascribed to a single royal lineage. Innovative and inspirational, these 16th and 17th century constructions demonstrate the staggering wealth and power of those responsible for their creation, notably the emperors Akbar, Jahangir and Shah Jahan. Mughal architecture is a remarkable hybrid that fuses building forms and decorative schemes from Iran and Central Asia with long-established Indian practice. The most famous examples are the Red Fort in Dehli and Taj Mahal in Agra. This beautifully illustrated book outlines the history of Mughal architecture and gardens, from stylistic developments under different emperors, to the geometric origins of Mughal design and decoration. Now the gardens are mostly lost, but George Michell carefully depicts how they would have been; their structures and layouts, the favoured varieties of colorful flowers and scented plants, and the laborious but innovative methods sometimes used to create running water in areas without natural springs and streams. The author gives particular attention to the major monuments and gardens in the imperial centres of Mughal power, namely Dehli, Agra, Fatehpur Sikri and Lahore. These sections are accompanied by specially commissioned architectural plans as well as over 250 stunning color photographs. Written by a leading authority on Indian architecture, this magnificent book is the quintessential guide to Mughal architecture and garden design.
