NATURAL ARCHITECTURE NOW: NEW PROJECTS FROM OUTSIDE THE BOUNDARIES OF DESIGN. Francesca Tatarella. Princeton Architectural Press, Inc., New York, 2014. Published in association with 22 Publishing, Milan. 224 pp. with 292 ills. (265 col.). 17 x 24 cm. LC 2013-33941 ISBN 9781616891404 In English.
Publisher's description: Our 2007 hit Natural Architecture introduced artists and architects who transform the act of building into a fascinating new art form. Built from humble elements--branches, twigs, straw, bamboo--and fulfilling a wide variety of intentions--sometimes structural, sometimes sculptural, sometimes sacred--their fantastical creations resonate with an innate natural beauty. Natural Architecture Now features all-new site-specific installations by an international list of contributors. From an engineered oasis and climbing structure in Joshua Tree National Park to an intricate bamboo installation on top of the Metropolitan Museum of Art to a residential mud structure prototype created by Architecture for Humanity Tehran, each project points a way forward for architects to engineer a new organic simplicity of structure and form.
