Mark #20

Jun/Jul 2009

Venture through the world’s newest and most unusual houses, from Metropolis’ Peruvian beach house (an ode to Stanley Kubrick) to Peter Haimerl’s Bavarian residence that he has converted from an old farm in an inhabitable dwelling. Sharon Johnston and Mark Lee discuss the home they just completed in Argentinia – their first non-US project – while Tomomasa Ueda built a home over a private parking tunnel in Yokohama. Elsewhere, Lacaton & Vassal’s new school of architecture in Nantes is all about spatial generosity. Steve Parnell thinks Valencia will be lovely when it’s finished.
