This book brings together a collection of recent projects and classic architectural designs by Mario Cucinella Architects, and explores the sensitive, creative, and sustainable solutions that architecture and nature can provide in answer to global challenges. The way forward is approached via constructive strategies of the past and from the plant world, looking at how man has adapted in every latitude, climate, and culture. Buildings of the past considered resources like wind, sun, rain, and local materials, sustainable strategies that are increasingly important today. Research in the plant world inspires buildings that can adapt to the climate and resonate with the environment. Each project featured here is accompanied by a wealth of illustrations and drawings, and an in-depth analysis that interprets all aspects of construction.
