From the Publisher:

Breathtaking organic structures designed by a visionary architect

This is the first monograph featuring the work of architect Mickey Muennig.
Muennig is an important proponent of organic architecture, creating highly individualized structures and spaces that express the dreams and needs of his clients, while complementing the natural environment. He has designed buildings, most notably in the Big Sur area of California’s Central Coast, that blend with their surroundings, incorporate passive energy features, and utilize natural materials in original ways. Maintaining a daring balance between past and future, Muennig’s unique work captures the iconoclastic spirit of Big Sur.

From Builders Booksource:

Big Sur provides a spectaular location for the growth of "organic" architecture. The unspoiled coast and redwoods add context to these amazing homes and the photography is extraordinary!

Mickey Muennig studied architecture under Bruce Goff at the University of Oklahoma. Upon graduating, he worked on various architectural projects around the country until a fortuitous vacation to Big Sur on California’s Central Coast in 1971 changed his life forever. He subsequently moved there, and has lived and worked in Big Sur ever since. Muennig was recognized by Architectural Digest as one of the top 100 architects in the United States in 2000 and 2002.
