From backpacks to luxury yachts, tents to trailer homes, the newest book from the author of Blowup, Wheres My Space Age, and Xtreme Houses follows architecture designed to follow mankind. For most of us, house means stability, structure, and permanence. In an age of increasing population and technological gains, todays mobile society has resulted in a demand for portable dwellings. As dynamic and captivating as Sean Tophams earlier works, this eclectic mix of forty innovative projects illustrates how architects, self-builders, and artists are pushing the limits of form and material to answer the new demands for portability. Surprisingly, many of the movable houses of today echo historys earliest and most rudimentary shelters. Some reveal an unprecedented demand for luxury and comfort while others reflect a desire to lessen mans impact on the earth. Cleverly juxtaposing the old and the new, countless eye-popping photographs of mobile homes, transformable fashions, custom vehicles, and private jets are paired with entertaining texts to explore the new nomadic lifestyle and the evolution of temporary communities. The book shows how our desire for a house that moves can be thrillingly modern, while expressing an essential part of our human nature.
