The article on the book “Ecological Buildings”

The article about Shell House on the “Ecological Buildings: New Strategies for Sustainable Architecture” by Dorian Lucas

This English language book is a collection of ecologically themed works from around the world over the last few years.

The projects range in scale and use from tiny houses to residences, schools and factories, and cover a wide range of regions from Europe and America to Asia and South America. Three works from Japan, including our firm, are introduced in the book. It is not a uniform expression of international architecture, but rather a collection of works in which the local materials and characteristics of each region are used in the architectural concept and design.
