With a foreword by Michael Webb this large landscape formatted book is beautifully laid out with striking photographs depicting not only the finished works, but some showing the unique construction process’ as well. Each residence has a detailed project description and select drawings that explain the design process and how modern materials can be exploited to create self–sustaining homes, which work to restore not just the environment around them, but the people who call them home.
