This first book on the esteemed decorator and tastemaker, known for beautiful interiors that are replete with tradition, saturated color, elegance, and Southern flair, will inspire and delight readers. Richard Keith Langham's all-American interiors unite a traditional approach with dashes of whimsy, beautiful tailoring, and an exuberant color palette. In this book, Langham charms and inspires with a selection of city and country projects--waterside estates on Maryland's Eastern Shore and Florida's Jupiter Island, gracious country houses in Pennsylvania and Connecticut, a grand townhouse in New Orleans, and city residences in New York, Washington, D.C., and Memphis. Langham conjures his own brand of design magic by approaching his clients' rooms with the rigors of classicism, paired with an innate Southern predilection for pared-down elegance. Signature touches include custom-painted murals, curious antiques, and couture fabrics--motifs that are uniquely Langham's but that also echo his early influences from working with design legends Mark Hampton and Keith Irvine. Langham has decorated for a glamorous clientele, including Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, Pat Buckley, and Hilary Swank. This volume presents his captivating, lush interiors--classic American with a vibrant and pattern-friendly flair--that will inspire design aficionados and fellow interior designers.

Architect Alexander D'Hooghe believes urban design has lost its way. Once among the most articulate and avant-garde of disciplines, the field now lacks, he suggests, the confidence necessary to address its most critical challengesprawl. In his provocative manifesto The Liberal Monument, D'Hooghe argues that architecture and urbanism must boldly intervene in city planning and growth management. This strategic use of architecture represents, for him, the last hope to revitalize the "quasi-endless gray carpet" spreading between theworld's urban centers. D'Hooghe's starting point requires a reassessment of discarded, sometimes disgraced, late-modern theories of placemaking. D'Hooghe points out that the very idea of top-down urban planning and monumentalized space was jettisoned due to its commonly held associations with the monumental neoclassicism andsymbolism employed by Nazi architect and urban planner Albert Speer. D'Hooghe respectfully posits that we should not allow this perversion of thought to preclude our own thinking at the scale of urban planning. D'Hooghe travels the world in search of experiments in urbanism and findsin the ruins of these failed utopiasa way forward. He discovers in the work of "second-generation" modernists Sigfried Giedion and Louis I. Kahn an effort to connect architecture, planning, and liberal politics. This becomes the seed for what he calls "the liberal monument." The Liberal Monument is a provocative, accessible work of theory that challenges all of the accepted truths of urban design. Its goal is to restore the confidence architecture will need, whether it is building cities from the ground up in China and Dubai or managing the growth of the sprawling suburbs of Phoenix and Raleigh/Durham.
