Philip Jodidio has collected numerous examples of the partnership between architecture and nature from throughout history and the world and presents them in one copiously illustrated volume. From Frank Lloyd Wright's residential house Fallingwater in Bear Run, Philadelphia, to the Miho Museum in Japan built by I.M. Pei, and from the Olympic Stadium built for the 1972 games in Munich to the MoMA roof top garden in New York by Ken Smith, Jodidio demonstrates the many forms that the interplay between built structures and their environment can take. He examines aspects of the relationship between nature and architecture such as nature as inspiration; the imitation and mimicking of natural patterns; landscape design; ecologically sensitive structures; and artificial realities, among others. Professionals, students, and fans of architecture and design will find this wide-ranging book an entertaining read and a valuable resource.

Architecture: NatureUser Review - Book Verdict
As the title implies, this book examines the relationship between contemporary architecture and nature. In Jodidio's (Architecture: Art ) wide-ranging introduction, which references fine art and literature, he mentions the way that some designers are merging buildings and landscapes. He also points out that nature is being analyzed and synthesized in many ways-future buildings, he writes, may actually be grown as living entities. He then briefly presents 62 such examples. Some are actually gardens, sculptures, or photographic essays associated with architecture. Represented are works by world-renowned architects, including Tadao Ando, Santiago Calatrava, Frank O. Gehry, I.M. Pei, Renzo Piano, SITE, and West 8. The relationship to nature in these works is diverse and not necessarily obvious; Jodidio articulates it with the help of quotes from the designers. This rather esoteric book is an optional purchase for academic libraries with comprehensive architecture collections.-David R. Conn, Surrey P.L., B.C.
