Overview

Although Antoine Predock's practice is international, his roots are in the American southwest. His architecture draws from the elemental forces in any location, but in the desert it draws from the monolithic topography, expansive cerulean sky, and sparse geometric flora. Known for the way he incorporates references to the elemental forces--air, earth, fire, water--Predock's bold, fluid structures evoke the mythic nature that is rooted in regional culture and forms.

This is the first book to put together all of the extraordinary houses designed by Antoine Predock. Each of the twelve remarkable private houses featured here--ten from Texas, Arizona, and New Mexico, and two from California--harmoniously blend with their landscape in ways for which Predock is now so renowned. Characterized by environmentally conscious design, the houses display both exquisite refinement and an ingenious level of invention.
