    Title: Edgy Architecture: Architecture in the Most Impossible Places

    "We wanted this house to embrace its landscape, we designed a house that would not engage with its landscape and become landscape." - Julien De Smedt in dezeen.com. "Study nature, love nature, stay close to nature. It will never fail you." - Frank Lloyd Wright. "I do not think that architecture is only about shelter, is only a very simple enclosure. It should be, to you, to make you think." - Zaha Hadid. This beautifully photographed book of striking buildings in impossibly difficult locations features a carefully curated selection of international projects. In more than 60 case studies, the authors profile houses built on cliffs, steep mountain slopes, and other treacherous places, like X house in Barcelona, Lookout in Norway, and the Capital Hill Residence of Zaha Hadid in Russia. The photographs were taken expressly for this book, and feature interior images and plans. AUTHOR: Agata Toromanoff is an art and design historian.
