Item description for Karl Lagerfeld: Three Examples of 20th Century Modern Architecture by Gerhard Steidl...

Karl Lagerfeld has more than a passing interest in modern architecture; polymath though he is, it would be hard to imagine him doing anything by halves. His architectural photographs have always tackled much more than structure and form, and in this exquisite three-volume boxed set, he explores three quite diverse architectural gems with his highly personal and insightful vision: the poet and renowned egomaniac Curzio Malaparte's Casa Malaparte villa, Perugini's La Casa Albero Nella Pineta di Fregene and Tadao Ando's Vitra House. Malaparte's villa is examined in two parts, the first addressing its integration within the landscape, and the second documenting its interior and furniture. Lagerfeld's use of the Polaroid-transfer technique beautifully captures the antique beauty and mystical charm of this elegiac villa. Perugini's Albero Nella Pineta di Fregene is a somewhat neglected Modernist gem, hidden amongst a cluster of trees in a small village near Rome, and constructed in wood, concrete and glass; and Ando's Vitra pavilion in Weil am Rhein is renowned as an architectural masterpiece that embodies his criteria of tranquility, harmony and dynamism. Lagerfeld's sensitive photographic documentation of the building perceptively renders both the geometric details and the unique sense of place which the building imparts. Three Examples of Twentieth Century Modern Architecture is a fabulous exercise in the photographic enjoyment of architectural excellence.
