Embassy Residences PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Embassy Residences free pdf Diplomacy demands a certain style: no capital can compete with Washington DC for the sheer presence, the elegance, and diversity of its diplomatic headquarters. All along the boulevards representatives of world governments live and work in residences that are technically the territory of each nation. Recently, countries like Italy have chosen to build embassies and residences that project their political purpose to the passer-by. Walk through the gates of the mansions on Massachusetts Avenue and enter an array of interiors, gardens, and offices that are designs for international living. The splendid images in this book, captured by Antonio Castaneda-Buraglia, take the reader into the rooms in the heart of buildings where diplomatic history lives. The forty-five homes here are the US addresses for the best art, handicrafts, garden styles, interior decoration, and often, personal history, of diplomats who represent the world to America. These details taken together present a world of international design choices -- each room with a very worldly purpose.
