Stunning Houses features 50 world-class projects that will take your breath away. The architectural masterpieces are perfectly situated in a wide variety of topographic locales and climatic zones such as forests, mountain ranges, and seaside cliffs. Some are hidden amongst lush vegetation while others stand exposed for all to see. Featured whimsical designs include houseboats, tree houses, a house that resembles an intergalactic spaceship that has just landed on the surface of a lake, and another that looks like 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 inclusion of rooftop gardens. Modern design elements include the dramatic use of glass and open space, which balance the presence of imposing materials such as steel and concrete. Prepare to be amazed. Includes plans and work by Architects Collective, Studio Arthur Casas, Bercy Chen Studio, Feldman Architecture, JHG _ Jorge Hernšndez de la Garza, Hans van Heeswijk Architects, Kotaro Ide, David Jameson, Olson Kundig Architects, Drew Mandel Architects, MHM Architects, Robert Harvey Oshatz, Sagan Piechota Architecture, Ibarra Rosano Architects, TACT Architecture and Idis Turato/Turato Architecture.
