In Search of Natural Architecture

Front Cover
Abbeville Press Publishers, 1994 - Architecture - 159 pages
Drawing on his background as an architect specializing in housing, environmental issues, and holistic design, David Pearson compiles a collection of "environmentally clean" and "spiritually healthy" buildings from around the world and across the centuries. Some are environmentally sound, some congenial to human well-being, and others spiritually powerful. He divides his discussion of these buildings, which are illustrated with 146 full-color photographs and eighteen drawings, into six thematic chapters.
