Beautifully illustrated with stunning photographs, sketches, working drawings, and perspectives of more than 150 extraordinary works, the book also features an in-depth discussion with founder Ernesto Bedmar, and an introductory essay by the design critic Byron Hawes. Volume Two - ‘Singapore' - introduces ten of the most recent houses completed by the firm in this invigorated country, offering a unique understanding of the tenets of tropical residential architecture through Bedmar & Shi's cultural and aesthetic interpretation of the vast socio-cultural melting pot that is that the majestic Garden City.Collectively, these two volumes provide a cohesive look at the wide-ranging output of one of Southeast Asia's most prolific, and highly respected, architecture and design firms.
