Carchitecture: Houses with Horsepower
Lifestyle journalist Thijs Demeulemeeste finally unites our passion for architecture and automobiles in Carchitecture: Houses with Horsepower. The book finds the common ground between architects and luxury carmakers, both sharing an appreciation for the elegance of design, attention to materials, and solid construction. With these design philosophies in mind, Demeulemeeste pairs iconic dwellings with their car equivalents throughout a series of chapters ranging from "Classic Gas" to "Case Study Cars." Its drool-worthy photos are accompanied by a collection of essays that includes "How the car became Frank Lloyd Wright's ultimate muse."
