This book is a dazzling compilation of dream houses with a view, photographed by James Silverman on his travels. Whether of a remote mountain cabin in Norway, a sensuous desert oasis in Morocco, or a monolithic concrete home in Switzerland, Silverman’s photographs capture the seemingly uninterrupted flow between interiors and exteriors. The featured architecture is defined by elements that absorb, reflect, or deliberately break with their surroundings.
Silverman’s images play with perspective and sight lines. They underline the harmony of perfectly composed juxtapositions of built structures and natural landscapes. Collected here, they also show how “infinite space” has established itself as a key precept of contemporary architecture around the world.
