-Architecture built in impossible locations, drawing from work by the best architects in the world -A beautiful gift and coffee table book for architecture lovers “We wanted this house to embrace its landscape, we designed a house that would not engage with its landscape and become landscape.” – Julien De Smedt in dezeen.com. “Study nature, love nature, stay close to nature. It will never fail you.” – Frank Lloyd Wright. “I do not think that architecture is only about shelter, is only a very simple enclosure. It should be, to you, to make you think.” – Zaha Hadid. This beautifully photographed book of striking buildings in impossibly difficult locations features a carefully curated selection of international projects. In more than 60 case studies, the authors profile houses built on cliffs, steep mountain slopes, and other treacherous places, like X house in Barcelona, Lookout in Norway, and the Capital Hill Residence of Zaha Hadid in Russia. The photographs were taken expressly for this book, and feature interior images and plans.
