To Karen McCartney, the super house has nothing to do with size; instead, it is one that has a strong connection with nature, that goes well beyond the everyday, and that, through the sensitivity of both architect and client, is imbued with mindfulness.
This book was the inspiration for the exhibition at Sydney Living Museum's Museum of Sydney.
From Australia to Ireland, Italy to Morocco, McCartney's found such spiritually uplifting places. Following interviews with many of the architects and owners, she discusses each house in detail; her informed and engaging text is matched by Richard Powers' striking photography. A must for anyone interested in architecture and design.
