Living in the Desert

A carefully curated and beautifully photographed selection of 50 architect-designed houses that reflects contemporary concerns about the unique challenges presented by life in the desert’s sensitive environment

The desert provides a sense of mystery and rugged beauty that attracts architects, home owners, vacationers, and anyone looking for an escape within its arid climate. This book showcases 50 works of residential architecture from across the last few decades, each with a unique connection to the desert in which it’s situated from the US, Europe, Asia, Australia and beyond.

Each building, designed by established and well-known contemporary stars as well as emerging architects, includes a short text and several exterior and interior images of its structure and surroundings.
