Close to Architecture

In stock (50 items available)
This impressive international survey addresses a broad selection of contemporary architecture in three hefty sections: commercial, residential and public cultural spaces. The buildings and structures have been selected based on the way they've successfully addressed their core functions while remaining inviting and stimulating. A portable music pavilion, a tree house restaurant and gallery renovation rub elbows in the commercial section. In the Public Spaces section, an innovative nursery school layout in Sweden keeps good company with the training center for an Argentinian football club and a Slovenian chapel. Residential dwellings include a Finnish villa, a 'Bamboo Forest House' in the UK and a hillside residence in Seattle designed to make the best of a difficult site.
