Editorial Reviews

Review

Each of the 66 featured site-specific installations, built from found on-site materials, is carefully cataloged with photographs, drawings, and models. Ultimately, these fantastical creations allow the changing landscape to naturally overtake each structure until it finally decomposes. -- American Style, June 2008

Like many surveys of particular themes of art, this book is one of the more useful compilations, with enough breadth of images to appeal to a wide range of artists and architects. -- Landscape Architecture, September 2007

With photos, notes, postcards and maps these albums evoke not only a long-gone world of steamer ships, train travel and the grand tour, but also the boundless wonder of travel at a time when the world seemed unimaginably vast. As beautiful as it is fascinating. -- Marin, December 2007

an inspiring collection by a really diverse selection of architects and designers -- WorldChanging, September 19, 2007

"In this remarkable book, Alessandro Rocca, architect and critic at Milan Polytechnic, has assembled a world of almost surreal beauty. " --Architect, October, 2007

"In a world driven by high-tech gadgetry, creations of organic architecture--by hand, with raw materials that are truly green--are worthy competitors to the latest skyscraper in any competition for psychic reward. In this remarkable book, Alessandro Rocca, architect and critic at Milan Polytechnic, has assembled a world of almost surreal beauty." --Architect, October, 2007

"Ecologically sensitive projects make up Natural Architecture. Some, such as a water station and a chicken house, are practical; many are dazzling in their inventiveness and beauty; and all were made from materials on-site." --House & Garden, October, 2007

"each project resonates with a sense of purpose and innate beauty." --Brunswick Street Bookstore
