Publisher: Braun Publishing 
Published Year: 2012

The design freedom of the contour and the plastic volume of the blob have long since superseded the purely orthogonal towers of the past. In addition to the most significant projects of recent years, the most spectacular towers still under construction, as well as path-breaking experimental sketches are presented by means of texts, planning material and illustrations. Comprehensive tables give the most important performance markers and provide information about the central subjects specific to this type of building, like the vertical development, safety and energy concepts.

Publisher: Thames & Hudson Ltd,  
Published Year: 2013.

The homes featured are from all around the world, whether in Europe, America, Asia or Africa, and will inspire readers to create their own unique style. From a modern house near Cape Town to an innovative Indonesian home-office, an 1830s barn purchased in New Jersey and then transported in pieces to Martha's Vineyard, or the home of a Norwegian collector of African artifacts in Ibiza, the homes vary enormously in location, size and style. There are ten chapters, taking you through each area of the home. This book has a refreshingly original approach and will appeal to everyone who is seeking inspiration for their own spaces.
