ENRIQUE BROWN: BRINGING NATURE BACK TO ARCHITECTURE. Enrique Browne. Images Publishing Group Pty Ltd, Mulgrave, 2016. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Antique Collectors' Club, New York. 276 pp. 23 x 23 cm. ISBN 9781864705713 In English.
Publisher's description: This highly anticipated monograph focuses on the architectural output of Enrique Browne, a talented and prolific Chilean architect and co-founder of Browne & Swett Arquitectos, based in Santiago. Over the last 40 years, this South American architect has been trying to reconcile natural and artificial worlds through architecture. They are one indissoluble unity. This book showcases in rich photographic detail how his innovative projects incorporate multiple environmental aspects that result in a complex, layered response to the challenges of place, form and identity in Chile. Browne's practice has developed architectural designs in a diverse range of scales, with emphasis on sustainability and energy efficiency. This volume delves into Browne's processes, such as developing variations of the "grapevine structure typology" to create a "double green skin" as a green wall (or roof), to protect dwellings from the region's strong westerly sun; or combining vegetation and its oxygenation benefits with building to counter pollution; or using both artificial and natural light as a material for illuminating spaces or volume.
