HBL Book of the Week: Arcadia

Wednesday, 6 April 2011

Chicken Point Cabin, Northern Idaho, USA, by Olson Sundberg Kundig Allen Architects
Focusing on an idyllically rustic approach to living, 'Arcadia: Cross-Country Style, Architecture & Design' (Gestalten, Berlin 2009, ISBN 9783899552577) serves as fantastic visual inspiration for WGSN-homebuildlife's A/W 12/13 macrotrend Eco Hedonism. The book is divided into four sections: Off Shore, Cross-Country, Deep in the Woods and The Mountain Calls.

WGSN loves: the detailed research that obviously went into each section. Architecture, furniture, lighting, products, installations and quotes are used to illustrate each lifestyle, and you're guaranteed to find an amazing designer you'd never heard of before within its pages.
