Summary

A breathtaking survey of contemporary homes, each with a deep connection to the landscapes and vistas of the mountains

Offering respite from urban living and a profound connection to nature, mountain landscapes present unique challenges that have resulted in innovative, resourceful, and beautiful residential architecture.

The 250 color illustrations in Living in the Mountains showcase the finest examples of architect-designed homes, whether furnished with impressive views, offering protection from harsh environments, or simply reveling in their extraordinary altitude. Each featured home includes an informative, descriptive caption.

Enjoy this definitive global tour, featuring structures and summits in North America and Europe as well as Japan, Morocco, Argentina, Mexico, Australia, and New Zealand. The book includes houses by prominent architects well established for their designs within nature, such as Olson Kundig, Bohlin Cywinski Jackson, and Tatiana Bilbao as well as a host of lesser-known creative studios.

This survey defines the homes' one-of-a-kind architectural qualities within it's three thematic chapters: built to look at mountains; built to become one with mountains; built to conquer mountains.

Embark upon an architectural adventure with Living in the Mountains, Phaidon's latest addition to the bestselling 'Inspired Living' series. This breathtaking series explores how the design of contemporary living spaces connects their inhabitants to the natural environments of forests, deserts, water, and now, mountains.
