Architecture and cars: not only does this combination generate beautiful pictures – eye candy for both architecture lovers and car freaks – but it is also a fascinating marriage. Where, for instance, did the idea come from that every self-respecting architect automatically drove a Saab? Why could Le Corbusier just as  well have been called Le Carbusier? And is Frank Lloyd Wright really the inventor of the carport?

Carchitecture answers these questions and many more alongside gorgeous photography on a journey through iconic architecture and car design. Starchitecture meets supercar across six chapters: Classical Gas, Brutal Power, Contemporary Carchitecture, European Modernism, Space Rage, and Case Study Cars.
