A stunning collection of mobile homes around the world.
Author Philip Jodidio has written over 100 books on art and architecture. His TASCHEN series includes monographs of iconic architects and designers, including Tadao Ando, Renzo Piano, Norman Foster, and Zaha Hadid, among others. With Nomadic Homes: Architecture on the move, Philip Jodidio explores the variety of worldwide mobile living spaces. A modern example of the humanity’s primordial nomadic spirit, these homes include everything from tents to Philippe Starck’s high-end Motor Yacht A; from a restored Airstream mobile home to a private jet. And everything else in between.
While all designs relate to the concept of movement, the homes range from modest to sophisticated. Inside the book, readers can find floating homes, woodland cabins, urban shelters, or spherical takes on the classic hammock. The book also features refugee housing, created for those forced to embark on a journey away from their homeland. In this section, the author has also included shelters designed by Pritzker Prize–winning architect Shigeru Ban. Published by TASCHEN, this multilingual edition of Nomadic Homes: Architecture on the move has 344 pages. These include text written and edited by Philip Jodidio, as well as gorgeous photographs and illustrations. Photographs© TASCHEN.
