An exceptional villa in the south of France by Atelier Barani. Rigorous refined monumentalism overlooking the Côte d’Azur.

More photographs uncovered from the Julius Shulman archive. Tashen pays tribute to residential and commercial buildings that had slipped from public view in this three volume set.
A resident of Los Angeles since 1920, Julius Shulman has been documenting modernist architecture in Southern California and across the globe for nearly eight decades. His images of Pierre Koenig’s Case Study House No. 22 (1960) in Los Angeles and Richard J. Neutra’s Kaufmann House (1947) in Palm Springs are among the most recognizable and iconic architectural photographs of the 20th century.
