Edgy Architecture Summary

Edgy Architecture: Architecture in the Most Impossible Places by Agata Toromanoff

"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 "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 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, Sunflower House in Girona and many more. Discover over 60 case studies where nature and architecture show their roughest but most beautiful side.
