Format: Hardcover
Enhanced with an informative Foreword by architectural expert and author Victor Papanek (who once worked with Frank Lloyd Wright), In Search Of Natural Architecture by London-based architect David Pearson is a world wide survey of buildings that embody the new ideas about the impact of architecture upon the ecological environment, as well as human health and spiritual well-being. Ingenious technological solutions to architectural problems ranging from the use of solar panels to sculptured designs are showcased with 300 illustrations -- 200 of which are in full color. In Search Of Natural Architecture is a seminal and enthusiastically recommended work, especially for its architecturally visionary ideas, imageries, and insights.
