Living Under the Sun: Tropical Interiors and Architecture

Books & Magazines

Gestalten's Living Under the Sun: Tropical Interiors and Architecture questions and studies the environmental and emotional nature of physical spaces within the tropics. This strikingly beautiful coffee table book focuses on the merge of urban architecture within laid-back habitats, in which the "threshold between nurture and nature...becomes less clearly defined, not quite one or the other or else immediately convertible." Each section within the work examines the essence and beauty that is found within mankind's longing for sacred, natural settings, and nature's ability to adapt around their artificial spaces - making for opposing, but ironically compatible environments of winsome.
