CABINS

CABINS

SFr. 59.00


Ever since Henry David Thoreau’s described his two years, two months, and two days of cabin existence at Walden Pond, Massachusetts in Walden, or, Life in the Woods (1854), the idea of a refuge dwelling has seduced the modern psyche. In the past decade, as our material existence and environmental footprint has grown exponentially, architects around the globe have become particularly interested in the possibilities of the minimal, low-impact, and isolated abode.

This book combining insightful text, rich photography and bright, contemporary illustrations by Marie-Laure Cruschi, explores how this particular architectural type presents special opportunities for creative thinking. In eschewing excess, the cabin limits actual spatial intrusion to the bare essentials of living requirements, while in responding to its typically rustic setting, it foregrounds eco-friendly solutions. As such, the cabin comes to showcase some of the most inventive and forward-looking practice of contemporary architecture, with Renzo Piano, Terunobu Fujimori, Tom Kundig and many fresh young professionals all embracing such distilled sanctuary spaces.

The cabins selected for this publication emphasize the variety of the genre, both in terms of usage and geography. From an artist studio on the Suffolk coast in England to eco-home huts in the Western Ghats region of India, this survey is as exciting in its international reach as it is in its array of briefs, clients, and situations. Constant throughout, however, is architectural innovation, and an inspiring sense of contemplation and coexistence as people return to nature and to a less destructive model of being in the world.

Essays within the book are as varied as the food and are the sort of writing that you'll want to read over and over again... The images of the food, chefs and locations are outstandingly beautiful - the photography is artwork and no mere accompaniment... Dotted amongst the writing and photography are quotations by some of the greatest chefs in the world about the process and the food itself... A wonderful gift for anyone who loves food, even if they already have enough recipe books... A fantastic insight into cooking, ingredients and the chefs who use them... Beautifully written and visually stunning, a lovely read and a great source of inspiration.

For the most ardent food lover comes a fulfilling companion called Cook it Raw - Phaidon's beautiful, sideways look at cooking. The large book records the four Cook it Raw events - conducted somewhere remote in Denmark, Italy, Finland and Japan with some of the best chefs in the world (such as Noma's Rene Redzepi and Momofuku's David Chang). Their mission is to create dishes made with the ingredients available to them in their surroundings. Free from the constraints of their kitchen the results range from failure to the orgasmic, but what binds them all is that common love and respect for what grows around us. Utterly spellbinding.
