"...this stirring collection assembles beautifully sited modern and contemporary structures chosen with a bracingly hard-edge sensibility... Photography and printing are exemplary." ~Interior Design
"[T]imely…In Houses: Modern Natural, Natural Modern
(Rizzoli, $60), author Ron Broadhurst presents beautiful structures well meshed within landscapes that range from areas around balmy, humid Mumbai to crisp Alpine heights in Switzerland. Plan, section and elevation drawings as well as photographs amplify the lucid text and make the coffee-table book a useful tool with which to design an eco-friendly - albeit expensive - home." ~San Francisco Chronicle
