The spectacular houses of Marmol Radziner merge interior and exterior life as they engage the built and natural environment. With lush photography and an expansive format, Site: Marmol Radziner in the Landscape focuses on the evolving relationship between house and landscape, revealing what the architects describe as the gradual erasure of boundaries between indoor and outdoor spaces. This collection of nineteen houses, shown in over two-hundred full-color photographs that will make readers swoon, is organized by habitat-desert, urban, canyon, and woodland-and includes projects in Arizona, Southern California, Utah, Nevada, and the Netherlands. A foreword by novelist Mona Simpson provides a personal reflection on her experiences in a Marmol Radziner house, while an interview with Leo Marmol and Ron Radziner and detailed descriptions of their projects offer insights into the architects' philosophy and process.
