Title: Shelter, 2nd Edition
An amazing book just about every kind of shelter known to man.
From the Publisher;
A continuation of Lloyd Kahn’s journeys into the creative processes of owner-built homes — their innovative techniques, use of sustainable materials, and essential dedication to the natural elements surrounding their designs — Builders of the Pacific Coast explores the aesthetics and skills of three master builders in California, Washington state, and the rugged terrain of British Columbia.
The three featured craftsmen — Lloyd House, Bruce Atkey, and Sun Ray Kelley — combine imaginative architecture with innovative contexts: everything from unusual house-boats to sculptural dwellings made of driftwood are included. With stunning color and black-and-white photographs, as well as detailed black-and-white drawings of the homes, this collection of unique and progressive designs creates a template for a future filled with forward-thinking architecture.
From Builders Booksource:
Kahn's "Shelter" (1973) was one of the original "back to the earth" books. It provided inspiration and direction for a huge audience of home builders and still has a dedicated and continuing market. "Homework" (2004) added color and a worldwide look at vernacular (owner built) housing. Builders of the Pacific Coast has a much narrower and personal focus...making these homes wonderfully real. We think this book will really inspire you!
