About this item
This beautifully illustrated book takes the reader on a journey through a number of outstanding contemporary houses designed and built across the richly varied and extraordinary European landscape.Philip Jodidio presents his expertise and knowledge on the most profound influences of contemporary residential architecture in this region. This book pairs images of unique architecture and interior design and a comprehensive analysis of each project, set within full-color photographic portraits that all together reflect the strength of drive and progressive thinking that inspired these designs.Though progressive, the architect s designs draw heavily on the local vernacular of the buildings of this region. Ordering principles borrow from the building's context and often relate metaphorically to the surrounding natural landscape, connecting the building to its site in a meaningful way. Sustainability and green energy efficiency features are also crucial components in the house design objectives and are seamlessly integrated with the architecture and these influences are clearly illustrated in this impressive volume.
