Outside Architecture shows how architects are transforming outdoor spaces into places of habitation with the design of courtyards, pool houses, terraces, porches, and roof gardens, in response to peoples' desire to spend more leisure time outdoors. Lavish color illustrations, architects' drawings and illuminating text take the reader on a visual tour of these beautiful spaces. Depicted within these pages are many examples created by architects for themselves: William Turnbull and Mary Griffin's own home in the Napa Valley where the lawn serves as a large living room the terraces, pool pavilion and hammock room designed by Buzz Yudell for his home in southern California Walter Chatham's New York City roof garden created with potted plants and reflecting pool to provide a play-ground for the family's children and a pleasant retreat for summer dining within a major metropolis a 127-foot bridge that rises to fourteen feet off the forest floor and runs through a house on the Olympic Peninsula designed by James Cutler a swimming pool in Florida designed by Hugh Newell Jacobsen that extends from the living room to a pool house, and many, many, more. Just as Inside Architecture revealed the renaissance of architects designing interiors, Outside Architecture illustrates the infinite variety of contemporary outdoor rooms being designed by top architects today.
