Special houses attract special people. Some houses were mere ruins, others were factories or railway stations, when their current owners fell in love with them. Some are old, others brand new, some both. Remarkable forms and sculptural visions, as well as pragmatic solutions can be found. Architecture can be diverse, adventurous and exhilarating. The 31 houses featured in this edition are the proof.

In four accompanying essays, William Menking, Cornelia Haff, Jochen Paul and  Ansgar Steinhausen offer their unique perspectives to the diverse relationships between buildings and holidays. The book also includes overview maps which locate all the properties featured on holidayarchitecture.com. 

HOLIDAY ARCHITECTURE - Selection 2017 is one of the winners in the category Books & Calenders of the German Design Award 2018.
