A breathtaking survey of contemporary homes, each with a deep connection to the landscapes and vistas of the mountains
Whether snow-capped, rocky, or covered with verdant forest, the sublime wilderness of mountains has inspired humans for millennia.

Offering respite from urban living and a profound connection to nature, mountain landscapes also present unique challenges that have resulted in innovative, resourceful, and beautiful residential architecture. Living in the Mountains is the definitive global tour, showcasing the finest examples of architect-designed homes, whether furnished with impressive views, offering protection from harsh environments, or simply reveling in their extraordinary altitude.

Enjoy this definitive global tour, featuring structures and summits in North America and Europe as well as Japan, Morocco, Argentina, Mexico, Australia, and New Zealand. The book includes houses by prominent architects well established for their designs within nature, such as Olson Kundig, Bohlin Cywinski Jackson, and Tatiana Bilbao as well as a host of lesser-known creative studios.
