Softcover, 160 pages
The third volume in the series of books dedicated to interior architecture addresses the issue of bar and restaurant design, an inexplicably neglected issue, almost totally ignored by the discipline literature. Bars and restaurants have to combine functions and features derived simultaneously from the prerogatives of private and social space. They reproduce in public confidential and individual habits, related to hospitality and conviviality. The nature of these places therefore has a dual character and expresses very clearly, the changes which have occured over the centuries within the relations between individuals, and within various societies and cultures. It is in this context that the discourse unfolds on the intrinsic characteristics of the architectural space and its furnishings.
