Críticas:

""Handmade Houses: A Century of Earth Friendly Home Design" (Rizzoli; $45), by Richard Olsen, a former editor at Architectural Digest, is a breezy history of the genre, tracing its roots from Henry Thoreau to Carl Jung, and from Helen and Scott Nearing, whose mid-century subsistence living experiment in Vermont and Maine prefigured the '70s-era back-to-the-landers, to Lloyd Kahn, once the shelter editor of The Whole Earth Catalog, and the dean of the hand-built movement." "New York Times

""What Richard Olsen has assembled is an attractive and engaging book, suitable for coffee table, bookshelf, or drawing board. Through interviews, research, and the collaboration of his photographers Lucy Goodhart and Kodiak Greenwood, he has created a beautifully tactile storybook about a passion to build." "New York Journal of Books

""This tale is a lot more than hippies and hot tubs, however. Olsen provides a thorough history of the owner-built, woodbutcher movement from places like Big Sur, California, and Prickly Mountain, Vermont. And he addresses the sources of handcraft construction: Buddhist architecture of Japan, Norwegians cabins, Sea Ranch in California, Gaudi, Maybeck, and Jung, to name a few). Works from Europe and Australia provide an international context." "Architectural Record

""If you are like me, interested in environmentally friendly design and unique style in the home, you will appreciate this book." Mid-Century-Modern.net

Reseña del editor:

Showcasing one hundred years of innovation and environmental sensitivity, "Handmade Houses" celebrates some of the world's most idiosyncratic homes from Big Sur to Sardinia. Author Richard Olsen unveils the components used for their construction, including driftwood, boulders, and even old wine vats.
The first study of the handmade-homes phenomenon since its inception in the late 1960s, "Handmade Houses" revisits the subject's roots and history, exploring how these homes and their owners paved the way for the architectural-salvage business and the reclaimed, industrial look ever-popular today. As fascinating as the structures are themselves, their owners--professionals and amateurs who personally designed and built each residence--offer their inspirations and stories behind the convention-defying homes. Design lessons are gleaned from each home--some examples of environmentally aware construction with applicable tips for use in more mainstream scenarios. "Handmade Houses" is an important and relevant volume to be appreciated by anyone interested in environmentally friendly design, craft, and the expression of personal style in the home.
