Multiple generations of the same family living under one roof is not a new idea. But what is new is the way architects around the world are re-embracing this form of living, back by increasingly popular demand. While the 20th century experience emphasized a single-family home for the nuclear family and bachelor pads, we are now seeing more tiers of the family unit choosing to live together. Come Together explores the why, the what, the where and, perhaps most importantly, the how of the homes that succeed to be livable for all generational tiers - with designs that are not only architecturally stunning, but balancing private and communal spaces to come together.

Nestled in thriving woodlands, overlooking bodies of water, or even exposed to the elements on a mountain's peak, architects are contending to create high-impact spaces on a small scale. Cabin Fever takes a broad look at remote retreats designed to make the most of their natural surroundings and illustrates why the call of the wild is louder than ever. A desire to escape the commotion of the city without sacrificing creature comforts is something felt by many; especially in today's interconnected world. Featuring rustic timber cabins on stilts, mirrored pods in the woods, and otherworldly off-grid getaways, Cabin Fever showcases a new wave of modern hideaways, all remotely positioned and away from the hustle and bustle.

Humans have been building their homes out of wood for thousands of years. Its tactility and warmth has influenced countless architectural movements, dating back to historic Japanese houses all the way up to the recent craze for cozy Scandinavian interiors. It's one of the world's oldest architectural materials and it just might be the future of how we build. Timber is fast emerging as a sustainable material of choice, and thanks to recent technological advances, it's a safe and sturdy alternative to concrete. This book explores the innovative and inspiring ways architects are using this universal building material. Spanning grand Alpine escapes to tropical getaways, plywood penthouses to mass timber high-rises, Out of the Woods celebrates a material that is both ancient and extremely versatile - and more topical than ever.
