What is "good" architecture? This seemingly simple question is connected to a wide range of criteria--just like the radical quest for "good" food, which has produced a wealth of insights over the past few decades.
This book showcases buildings whose construction has been based on simple technology, good craftsmanship and careful choice of local and natural materials, as well as local development initiatives that demonstrate excellence in building quality, landscape restoration and community revitalization.
The selection of case studies is broad and definitely unconventional: it encompasses Europe and Japan, and privileges lesser-known authors, unobtrusive works and marginal localities where radically fresh attitudes have been able to develop.
