Newly available in PLC, Landscrapers is a stunningly designed and illustrated exploration of global 'geotecture' - the way in which architects are building into the earth, merging man-made form with the contours of the land. Four central chapters explore the different ways in which geotecture responds to, interacts with, becomes a part of and is integrated into our natural landscape. A reference section includes useful project and architect information, along with further reading.
