VIA ARQUITECTURA Via 17 - Summer 2007

Pap. Valenica, 2007

Book ID: 76805

Sensitive to both human intervention and natural elements, such as waves and wind, coastlines around the world pose interesting challenges to architects who must increasingly balance aesthetic issues, with environmental and cultural concerns. Eighteen projects, ranging from private houses to community facilities, are examined through photographs, plans and introductory texts. Highlights include: Chipperfield's America's Cup Building', Valencia; Sean Godsell's St. Andrews Beach House', Victoria; Toyo Ito's Relaxation Park,' Torrevieja; and Nouvel's Porto Senso, Altea.
