This monograph features twenty-five houses by the renowned Brazilian architectural firm Jacobsen Arquitetura. Most are in Brazil, but one is in Australia. Each house includes a short project text by author Philip Jodidio and a selection of drawings and plans. The book begins with an introductory essay about the significance of the work of Jacobsen Arquitetura and a brief section at the end of the book features renders of houses still under construction in Europe, the Middle East and the Caribbean. Fully illustrated with photography commissioned by the architect, the book sets each house in the context of Brazil's diverse terrains and climates.
