Essential for the artist, architect, or anyone interested in the nature and construction of art studios, this book includes detailed yet easy to understand how-to guides for artists seeking to build a high quality studio of their own. This unique exploration into the design of art studios—ranging from the workspaces of the Old Masters, through the nineteenth century academies, to the most high tech visual arts spaces on earth today—delves beneath the paint-spattered surfaces to reveal key architectural principles that optimize the successful art studio. Technical criteria for architects designing large studio arts facilities are published here for the first time. Safety and health guidelines and typical equipment lists are provided for each studio type, explained through photographs, architectural plans and programming criteria tables. “Here, for the first time, is an opinionated yet empathetic look at the architectural workings of some of the world’s best studios. ATELIÉR reveals the power of architecture to energize human creativity so convincingly, it’s hard to believe this book’s topic has been overlooked for so long. No interior decorating book, this is a serious architectural study that uncovers the practical and psychological secrets at the core of a great studio—and shows you how and why they work.” David Dalton, author of Pop: The Genius of Andy Warhol “ATELIÉR: Building the Visual Arts Studios of the 21st Century gives us an insider’s look into the private spaces where artists work. It’s a privileged insight and Tony Winters is our personal architect and guru, as he guides the reader from pre-historic caves to the most sophisticated art buildings in the world today. Winters deconstructs art studios and shares an architect’s useful tips and secrets with his readers.” Mark Wakely, executive producer, The Comfort Zone, ABC Radio National, twice recipient of award for excellence in architectural journalism from the Royal Australian Institute of Architects “This is a rare look into artist studios that touches upon art, architecture, history, and the use of light and space. I think this would be of great interest to people designing and building studios, and ways to configure existing spaces.” Brandon Soloff, artist and owner of the teaching atelier Chelsea Classical Studio
