Description
Showcasing superlative residential architecture in some of the most dramatic coastal landscapes of South America, this book spotlights the work of a number of renowned Latin American architects, in styles that borrow heavily from tradition, express modern design principles, or blend the two in novel ways. Among the 25 houses here, seen in large color photographs and drawings, are Humberta Farias's ground-hugging Sítio Carababa house, made of natural timbers; the Cavaco Island House of Cláudio Bernardes and Paulo Jacobsen, which seems to float above the landscape like an island on an island; and sculptor Franz Krajcberg's Tree House, a wooden bungalow perched 20 feet in the air on the branch of an ancient tree.
