Living in the Mountains
Offering respite from urban living and a profound connection to nature, mountain landscapes present unique challenges that have resulted in innovative, resourceful, and beautiful residential architecture. The 250 colour illustrations in Living in the Mountains showcase the finest examples of architect-designed homes, whether furnished with impressive views, offering protection from harsh environments, or simply revelling in their extraordinary altitude. Featuring structures and summits in North America and Europe as well as Japan, Morocco, Argentina, Mexico, Australia, and New Zealand, the book includes houses by prominent architects well established for their designs within nature, such as Olson Kundig, Bohlin Cywinski Jackson, and Tatiana Bilbao as well as a host of lesser-known creative studios.
This survey defines the homes' one-of-a-kind architectural qualities within it's three thematic chapters: built to look at mountains; built to become one with mountains; built to conquer mountains.
