Reviews

"With exciting photographs that convey expanses of space and frame jaw-dropping elements such as courtyard swimming pools and stairwells that seem to levitate, McGillick's book highlights powerful elements of International Modernism: transparency, texture, protection, and integration with the landscape. An appreciation of cultural heritage, use of eco-smart materials, and the strategic capture of natural ventilation are elements that make these elaborate home." -Paul McGillick, Publishers Weekly
"I have gotten a glimpse today of The Sustainable Asian House by Paul McGillick and Masano Kawana as the Photographer. This book has been popular in Southeast Asia, specifically Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, and the Philippines. The book includes representation of tropical architecture and its growing interest in traditional materials and craftsmanship. It includes an emphasis on fresh air, natural light, and spatial variety. It has also talked about how designers are considering issues such as orientation to the sun and prevailing winds to reduce energy consumption and carbon footprint. There are about twenty-seven houses featured in this fascinating and stunningly photographed study which will give interest, learning and inspiration to all." -AishaKristine.com
