Philip Jodidio has collected numerous examples of the partnership between architecture and nature from throughout history and the world and presents them in one fully illustrated volume. Jodidio demonstrates the many forms that the interplay between built structures and their environment can take, in projects such as: Frank Lloyd Wright's residential house Fallingwater in Bear Run, Philadelphia; Miho Museum in Japan built by I.M. Pei; The Olympic Stadium built for the 1972 games in Munich; and MoMA roof top garden in New York by Ken Smith. He examines aspects of the relationship between nature and architecture such as nature as inspiration; the imitation and mimicking of natural patterns; landscape design; ecologically sensitive structures; and artificial realities, among others. Professionals, students, and fans of architecture and design will find this wide-ranging book an entertaining read and a valuable resource.
