    Antoni Gaudi has a reputation as monastic, mad and hermetic. But the architect of many of the buildings that define Barcelona's cityscape was no mad eccentric. He was a genius inspired by his faith in nature and the divine. Picking up the same strands of eclecticism and art nouveau current in fin de siecle European architecture, he transformed them into an idiom unique to himself and Barcelona to create a series of buildings as revolutionary in their engineering as they were astonishing for their spaces. For Gaudi his work was his life, and this book reveals the exuberant world and groundbreaking work of this unique figure in the history of modern architecture.

    How Living Spaces Reduced to the Max Can Maximize the Quality of Life

    The desire for as much space as possible on as little room as necessary is neither automatically connected to an alternative lifestyle nor is it a protest against our luxury-oriented society. Sometimes it simply makes life easier, more comfortable, and more economical. The “Tiny House Movement” lifestyle trend, which began in the United States, has spread throughout the entire world, intensified by the construction and financial crisis.

    This title presents contemporary projects from around the world that take on the simple yet challenging task to develop enthralling room concepts and spatial solutions for the efficient use of the smallest living spaces. The furnishings need to be carefully designed and compact to make the most of the available space, such as a bench that can be converted into a bed. These mini interiors investigate the possibility of providing a better setting for everyday living based on what is necessary, what is desired, and what is possible.

    Whether strict and orthogonal or undulating and curved, whether rough and natural or polished and elegant…

    Wood is nature’s greatest resource, embedded in the history, culture and life of humans worldwide. And it is ingenious as building material: remarkably malleable and at the same time resilient, recyclable in many ways and reducing greenhouse gases, universally applicable and locally available, renewable and beautiful. Today, new pro-cessing technologies extend the spectrum of its possible applications and the combinability with other building materials, enabling new technical and design solutions. In short, almost anything – structurally – can be done with it. Whatever architects and interior designers think of can be realized with wood: from energy-efficient houses via multi-story academic facilities to the interiors of fashion-able bars. The traditional building material has become ultra-contemporary and increasingly cutting-edge, offer-ing exciting possibilities for architectural design.
