With more of us working from and on our homes longer, due to the pandemic, our house and wander lusts are beginning to collide.
No problem. Thames & Hudson is here to satisfy both. On Oct. 20, the publisher will release “CASA TROPICAL: Houses by Jacobsen Arquitetura,” an illustrated exploration of architectural works by the Brazilian firm.
Established by Paulo Jacobsen – who was voted one of the 100 most important architects by Architectural Digest in 2001 and one of the 100 most influential designers by Wallpaper magazine — and his son, Bernardo, Jacobsen Arquitetura creates houses that incorporate water, vegetation and transparent walls to bring outdoors and indoors into harmony. From dense urban sprawl to lush beach havens, “Casa Tropical” showcases 25 houses that underscore the firm’s approach of building homes that let nature in. Each featured project is discussed by architecture critic Philip Jodidio and illustrated with drawings, plans and photographs commissioned for this book.
