Vegetarian Architecture: Case Studies on Building and Nature

Andrea Bocco Guarneri

Jovis, 2020


What is “good” architecture? This seemingly simple question is connected to a wide range of criteria—just like the radical quest for “good” food, which has produced a wealth of insights over the past few decades. This book showcases buildings based on simple technology, good craftsmanship, and careful choice of local and natural materials, as well as local development initiatives which demonstrate excellence in building quality, landscape restoration, and community revitalisation. The selection of case studies is broad and definitely unconventional: it encompasses Europe and Japan, and privileges lesser-known authors, unobtrusive works, and marginal localities where radically fresh attitudes have been able to develop.
