INSPIRATION

There is no doubt that the Bauhaus movement (1919 to 1933) occupies a special position in the ranks of art schools. Its uniqueness and doctrines widened the horizons of modern architecture and art. Its theories of applied art and design shaped the 20th century style: The Bauhaus made its mark. The changing economic structure had serious consequences for the trades in industrial mass products and swept aside handcrafted products. It was not the machine era that was responsible for the inferiority of modern art, but the excessive striving for maximum profit, which lowered the quality of the products. The machine was a phenomenon very much in keeping with the times.The members of the Bauhaus school of architecture migrated throughout the world and guided design theory and production. This led to a dominance of simplicity, clarity and Functionalism Optical Art within the Bauhaus movement is a form of perceptual abstraction that generates optical effects in the visual system of the viewer by use of cleanly designed patterns. Minimalism within the movement is an expression of pure form reduced to its simplest expression.The Art Nouveau involves the stylization of elongated form to its essentials. Symmetrical and rectilinear Art Deco represented the Modern style in its most extreme form.Sassoon was inspired by Bauhaus. He related hairdressing to architecture. As an architect would create a structure within the parameters of a city using its natural geographic landscape, so the hairdresser would cut hair within the confines of a human face using the natural structure of the bones.In design, Sassoon haircuts were always ahead of the times. Vidal Sassoon’s perception of the Bauhaus movement is to be regarded as a productive process. He was inspired by the aesthetic admiration for a specific aspect of the Bauhaus tradition. On the other hand, he was seeking answers to the questions that the era posed for the hairdressing craft and receiving inspiration through architecture.

L.A. ready to enact tighter green building standards

Proposed law would require large, privately built commercial and residential projects to use environmentally sound practices.

By Margot Roosevelt, Los Angeles Times Staff WriterFebruary 16, 2008

Los Angeles, known for its choking smog and fuel-burning gridlock, is poised to adopt one of the toughest green building ordinances in the nation. Two City Council committees voted Friday to require that all major commercial and residential developments slash projected energy and water use and reduce the overall environmental footprint, placing the city on the cutting edge of an international movement to address the global warming effects of buildings.Under the ordinance, privately built projects over 50,000 square feet — of which there are roughly 200 constructed annually — must meet a “standard of sustainability” by incorporating a checklist of green practices into their building plans.The checklist includes a choice of such items as low-flow toilets, paints with low emissions, use of recycled materials, efficient irrigation, solar panels and use of natural light.The average green building, according to studies, saves 36% in energy, 40% in water, and cuts greenhouse gas emissions by 40% and solid waste by 70%.The proposed ordinance has garnered unusually broad support, thanks to more than a year of negotiations and meetings between city officials and citizens’ groups.It is endorsed by some of the area’s biggest developers, along with the Los Angeles Business Council, the American Institute of Architects, several building trade unions and groups such as Global Green and the Green LA Coalition.“When you do something this big, it can be quite scary,” City Council President Eric Garcetti said.“But this has been an inclusive process. It will lead to a healthier city and a healthier planet.”Garcetti said he expects the full council to adopt the standards unanimously within a month.Nationwide, buildings account for 71% of electricity consumption, 12% of potable water used and 40% of the greenhouse gas emissions that, scientists say, are heating the planet to dangerous levels.The council’s proposed green checklist — known as the Leadership in Energy and Environment Design, or LEED — was developed by the U.S. Green Building Council, a Washington-based nonprofit group.It is rapidly becoming a national baseline standard, as more than 120 localities have adopted green building rules for public construction, and 12 cities, including Boston, Washington and San Francisco, have extended the rules to the private sector.Under L.A.’s ordinance, which would take effect six months after City Council adoption, developers who build to an even higher standard, so-called LEED Silver, would get expedited permits.The incentive has generated great interest among some developers.“Building green is good for business, building green is good for developers and building green is good for the city of Los Angeles,” Brad Cox, chairman of the Los Angeles Business Council, testified before the council committees Friday.Cox, managing partner of the local office of Trammell Crow, one of the nation’s largest developers, said his company is building six Los Angeles projects designed to meet more stringent green standards than the city proposes.However, Holly Shroeder, chief executive of the Los Angeles and Ventura chapter of the Building Industry Assn., which represents mainly residential builders, suggested that the city develop its own rules rather than relying on an outside standard such as LEED.“This is a pretty significant change in how we build in the city, at a time when the private sector doesn’t need more mandates,” she said.And Tom Gilmore, a downtown developer, said the LEED standard did not give enough credit in its checklist to buildings located near mass transit.L.A.‘s program, however, is likely to evolve under a new Green Team of city agencies set up under the ordinance, according to Claire Bowin of the city’s planning office. The team would hold public meetings every month to work out kinks and examine proposals.“This is a baby step for some, but a huge leap for others,” said Bowin.“We recognize that. The Green Team will remove barriers to innovation.”For some, the new standard doesn’t go far enough. Jane Paul of Green LA Coalition suggested that the city lower the threshold to 25,000 square feet to incorporate medium-sized buildings in the program in the next two years.And Ken Lewis, president of the architectural firm AC Martin Partners, advocated raising the baseline “to LEED Silver as the minimum.”Lewis, whose firm has designed projects for the city, local universities and private developers, said that five years ago it was more costly to build to green standards. “Today, we find no additional project cost to achieve the city’s [proposed] baseline standard,” he said.The new standard will go a long way toward meeting the city’s pledge to reduce its carbon footprint to 35% below 1990 levels by 2030. By mid-century, two-thirds of the buildings in the city will have been built between now and then.Pasadena, Santa Monica, Long Beach and West Hollywood have adopted mandatory green building standards.But Los Angeles would be the largest city in the nation to do so.margot.roosevelt@ latimes.com

What does  STYLING  really mean?

STYLIST DEFINITION

styl·ist (stīlist)noun

  1. a writer, etc. whose work has style and distinction or is characterized by a particular style;
  2. a person who designs, creates, or advises on, current styles, as in dresses,shoes,make -up, etiquette,photo soots,marketing campaings,editorials ;

    Styling is probably one of the most misunderstood professions of all. For many people, a “stylist” is merely a person who cuts hair and applies makeup. When one says, “I’m a stylist,” the first thing that comes into our mind is probably a beauty salon.

    A stylist is an expert who uses art and science to make people and objects look good in order to make a statement. If your first impression about the art of styling is merely about making a simple house cleaner looks like a million-dollar babe you are not alone.
