Contemporary Follies
Title: Contemporary Follies

ISBN: 9781580933407

From Builders:

The Small House movement continues strong. Although not focused on homes, "Contemporary Follies" ends up being this amazingly inspiring look at small (some VERY small) structures throughout the world. Many of these "Follies" are designed by internationally renowned architects and artists, really great fun!

From the Publisher:

The book features fifty structures, including work by internationally recognized firms such as Arata Isozaki & Associates, Heatherwick Studios, Patkau Architects, Steven Ehrlich Architects, TEN Arquitectos as well as innovative young studios in all parts of the world: Norway, United Kingdom, Austria, Chile, Germany, Ecuador, Finland, Taiwan, Spain, Canada, Netherlands, United States, Czech Republic, France, and Switzerland. International in scope and focused on design excellence, this collection of exquisite buildings will appeal to all who yearn for a place of their own, a retreat in which to regroup and reprioritize. Together these small structures are the contemporary interpretation of the folly, the small building nestled in the landscape, a place apart.
