The spectacular houses of architecture firm Marmol Radziner merge interior and exterior life as they engage the built and natural environment. With lush photography and an expansive format, Site: Marmol Radziner in the Landscape focuses on the evolving relationship between house and landscape, revealing the gradual erasure of boundaries between indoor and outdoor spaces.
The book has a collection of 19 houses, shown in over 200 full-color photographs that will make readers swoon. The houses are organized by habitat, including desert, urban, canyon, and woodland, and includes projects in Arizona, Southern California, Utah, Nevada, and the Netherlands. A foreword by novelist Mona Simpson provides a personal reflection on her experiences in a Marmol Radziner house, while an interview with Leo Marmol, FAIA, and Ron Radziner, FAIA, and detailed descriptions of their projects offer insights into the architects’ philosophy and process.
Marmol Radziner, a California-based architecture firm established in 1989 by Marmol and Radziner is known equally for its own designs and its restoration of modern masterworks, including homes by Richard Neutra, R. M. Schindler, and John Lautner. The design-build practice is the recipient of numerous local, regional, and national awards. www.papress.com
