Hyperwest: American residential architecture on the edge
The American West has long stood for adventure and opportunity, wide open spaces, the new frontier. From this wellspring of limitless possibility comes the inspiration for some of today's most innovative residential design, attesting to the creativity and imagination that define western architecture.
Hyperwest chronicles the unique ingenuity and beauty of these structures by placing them within a thematic context - organic, technological, or historical. The splendor and idiosyncracy of these private homes, many of which are being published for the first time, are captured in lavish color, while provocative text outlines the concepts on which they are based. Featured in hyperwest are works by John Lautner, Antoine Predock, Ace Architects, Bart Prince, and Ed Niles among others.
At once a design reference and inspirational sourcebook, hyperwest provides both professionals and enthusiasts a firsthand look at the cutting edge in western residential design.
