Meeting the new opportunities for rural living demands imaginativedesign, and many of the world’s most inventive architects arerising to this challenge. Among those featured in this book arewell-known names like Kengo Kuma, Steven Holl, Lacaton Vassal, Eduardo Souto de Moura, Baumschlager + Eberle, Niall McLaughlin andSean Godsell, as well as a host of talented architects from Russiato South Africa, Chile to China, New Zealand to the US. What makes the demand for new and challenging architecture allthe greater is the rapidly changing relationship betweencountryside and city, driven by social and technologicaldevelopment. In these circumstances, precedents from history andtradition are at best starting points: imagination, innovation andcreativity are essential to do full justice to new challenges, expectations and opportunities. As urban life becomes increasinglyrarified and stressful, so the contrast with raw nature assumes adifferent value to its status in past centuries, when architectsgenerally sought to bring nature under human control. So this bookdivides houses into sections that reflect elemental qualities oflandscape, forest, plain, ocean and mountain, as well as a sectionon houses that update the tradition of manipulating nature intotelling a story.
