STUNNING HOUSES. {Title from cover.} Gingko Press Inc., Berkeley, 2014. Published in association with Loft Publications, Barcelona. 492 pp. with 622 ills. (477 col.). 32 x 28 cm. ISBN 9781584235583 Multilingual in English, German, French and Spanish.
Publisher's description: Stunning Houses features 50 world-class projects that are quite literally breathtaking. Architectural masterpieces that are perfectly sited in a wide variety of topographic locales and climatic zones, from forest or mountain range to perched on a seaside cliff. Some are hidden in the landscape, nestled in amongst the trees and vegetation, others boldly present for all to see. Flights of fancy are given free reign, from houseboats to tree houses. One resembles an intergalactic spaceship that has just landed, on the surface of a lake, another, a gigantic fossil gastropod that has just been unearthed. The natural world is incorporated through the use of organic materials such as wood and stone or the creation or rooftop gardens - some with water features - the modern, through the dramatic use of glass and open space, which lighten the presence of such dense materials as steel and concrete. Prepare to be amazed. Includes plans and work by: Architects Collective, Studio Arthur Casas, Bercy Chen Studio, Feldman Architecture and Hans van Heeswijk Architects.
