This book features amazing desert homes around the world. Set in extreme landscapes with limited resources around them. The owners have been inspired by the desert and range from renovated Airstreams to sprawling, modern stucco, desert has become the new beachfront.
The author says it best ´A home in the desert isn’t for everyone—you need special clothes, special wheels, and lots of moisturizer to withstand its brutality—but it’s not just for alien enthusiasts, wannabe cowboys, or hippies either. Around the world, the desert gathers expansive thinkers, dreamers who feel encumbered by the boundaries of apartment living, and builders who don’t yet know they can build. I’m no exception´
We explore classics like Georgia O’Keefe’s in Abiquiu, New Mexico, alongside more modern homes such as Michael Barnard’s Solar House in Marfa, Texas. All accompanied by amazing photography.
The author, iO Tillett Wright and his work have been featured in GQ, Elle, New York, Vogue, and The New York Times Magazine.
Casey Dunn is an Austin, Texas-based photographer. He specializes in architectural and editorial photography.
Living in the desert may not be for everyone but I enjoyed being transported to faraway places. I also enjoyed the stories of those who live in the houses and the peaceful surroundings.
This book is beautifully written and it is great to enjoy and display.
