Natural Architecture by Alessandro Rocca
This book blurs landscape and art together, showcasing artists that carve and build sculpture from natural materials. I especially thought the Sylvan Steps by David Nash and the Root Sculpture by Nils-Udo deserved mention.
“Never has the relationship between art and nature been more complicated and more fragile, but also richer and more fascinating. The artists and architects in Natural Architecture have transformed the act of building into an art form capable of sparking new relationships with nature, landscape, and the environment. Natural Architecture presents sixty-six site-specific installations that use raw materials, manual labor, and natural stimuli to create truly green architecture that is as organic as the materials with which it is created.”
