Architecture : Nature
One of the recommended books in the KCLS infoGreen program is Architecture : Nature. This book by Philip Jodidio explores the relationship between contemporary architecture and nature. From Frank Lloyd Wright's residential house Fallingwater in Mill Run, Pennsylvania to the Miho Museum in Japan built by I.M. Pei, Jodidio demonstrates the many forms that the interplay between built structures and their environment can take.
The following image from the Miho Museum illustrates the interplay between structures and their environment:
