Maison--Christian Liaigre
Christian Liaigre's epoch-defining interiors include the Mercer Hotel in New York, offices for Valentino Couture in Paris, and Selfridges department store in London, as well as private residences for Calvin Klein, Karl Lagerfeld, and Kenzo.
His luxurious dark-wood minimalism and masculine palette of creams, browns, and grays have redefined modernism, supplanting the Scandinavian blond timbers on white that just a few years ago were the sine qua non of the modern interior. Working in close collaboration with Liaigre, Herbert Ypma set out to capture and document eight recent and previously unpublished residential projects. They are incredibly diverse: a modernist retreat on the Galician coast belonging to the family of Spanish fashion designer Adolfo Dominguez; a former artist's atelier in Montparnasse; Rupert Murdoch's capacious SoHo loft; an eighteenth-century Bavarian timber farmhouse owned by the proprietor and designer of Germany's fashion label Strenesse; and Liaigre's own fisherman's cottage retreat on the Ile de Re.

The integrity and pervasive calm of Liaigre's spaces reflect an instinctive aversion to the clamor of modern life. His materials are luxuriously authentic—exotic African timbers such as ebony; linen, silk, and wool; marble and natural stone; and his signature bronze hardware. And, as every project demonstrates, he makes deep connections with the tradition of each location, whether it be the industrial heritage of downtown Manhattan or the wild coastal landscape of Corsica. 500 color illustrations

Barbecue sous une petite pluie chaude de juillet. On dejeune donc dans la salle a manger tout en examinant nos effets de pierre qui sechent et en discutant des prochaines etapes a faire. Nanou et Christian soignent les artistes. Je le savais qu'on serait chouchoutes, et je dois dire, ce n'est pas commun. C'est bien pourquoi j'avais accepte exceptionnellement de realiser un chantier de decoration. Non seulement j'avais donc l'opportunite de rencontrer un jeune artiste doue (Jerome, le jeune cousin de Nanou) avec qui je pouvais donc entreprendre quelque chose d'un peu complique, mais je savais qu'on serait comme en famille, qu'on dejeunerait jovialement. Chose qui ne m'arrive pas beaucoup en temps normal, car a Saint Clair sur Epte ou j'ai mon ecole de peinture il n'y a plus de restaurants, et meme le cafe local ne fait pas de sandwiches. Le boucher non plus. Le boulanger jamais. Le boulanger dit qu'il ne veut pas faire concurrence au boucher, le boucher dit qu'il ne veut pas faire concurrence au cafe, le cafe dit qu'il ne veut pas faire concurrence a l'epicier, et l'epicier lui vend des sandwiches genre autoroute sous cellophane. je suis considerablement irrite de cette situation. L'un de mes seuls regrets par rapport a ma vie anterieure aux Etats Unis est que la bas, on peut manger (delicieusement d'ailleurs contrairement a ce que vous pensez) presque partout a toute heure du jour et de la nuit, pour seulement quelques dollars, et sans que le commercant vous regarde d'un air desagreable parce que vous ne venez pas a midi 30 precise. Bon, mettons ce commentaire aigre de cote, et vive la convivialite des amis, merci a Nanou et Christian pour leur hospitalite.

Par exemple, a une echelle de 1/10ieme Jerome va etudier la maniere de geometriser les arcades qui supportent le toit de notre pergola en trompe l'?il. Il faut que ca ai l'air solide, logique, et en meme temps leger. Puis il faut tester sur papier comment on va faire pour retracer tout cela a la main et avec les compas, ficelles, regles…

Early Christian Chapels in the West: Decoration, Function, and Patronage
Chapels were among the important types of buildings that evolved during the first four centuries of organised Christianity in the West. They were originally developed in connection with the cult of the saints, commemorating both their gravesites and their places of martyrdom. But the chapels rapidly found other uses among the ever-expanding Christian population as places of prayer and pilgrimage, and were chosen by the faithful for their own burial beside the saints.
With little in the way of contemporary written records, the decorative programme of each chapel is now often the only way to determine the function, patronage, and meaning of the building. Gillian Mackie examines the decorative schemes of the surviving chapels built in Italy and Istria from AD312-740 in the context of numerous chapels known from archaeological sites or from later medieval texts. Using the decoration as the primary source of evidence on the buildings' use and meaning, this survey includes chapels, imperial mausolea, and the oratories of the popes and bishops, from Rome, Milan, Ravenna, and the smaller centres of the upper Adriatic. The author begins with an overview of the various types, and then discusses several of the most complete monuments in considerable detail. Unique in its scope and approach, Mackie's survey of the functional context of early medieval chapels is the most complete work ever published in its field and will be an important reference work for anyone interested in medieval art and architecture.
