What is the relationship between a building and its location, and what should that relationship be? Inhabitat writer, passive house consultant and author Andrew Michler tackles that question with his new book: [ours] Hyperlocalization of Architecture: Contemporary Sustainable Archetypes. In the past, a building was imposed on the landscape, on it but not a part of it. Today, innovative architecture weaves into its environment and the people who live in it. In his book, Michler speaks with renowned architects to better understand this hyperlocalized architecture and how it is influencing today’s most forward-thinking, sustainable designs. [ours] Hyperlocalization of Architecture just hit stores, and you can pick up a copy through Amazon or the eVolo shop.
