boundary sequence illusion ‑ Ian MacDonald Architect

TITLE : boundary sequence illusion – Ian MacDonald Architect

AUTHOR : Ian MacDonald Architect, Inc.

EDITOR : Brian Carter

ESSAYS : Barry Sampson, David Dorenbaum, Christine Macy

This book considers the contemporary house through close scrutiny of works designed by Ian MacDonald, and the ideas that are embedded within them. The architect explores boundary and illusion, and considers site and sightings in both the city and countryside to create houses that appear, disappear, and re-appear. Energetic explorations of land and considerations of weather provide the basis for MacDonald's designs of residential spaces that capture particular views, establish sequences of movement, and make inspiring places to live in nature. Featuring a well-illustrated selection of projects designed over the past twenty years, the book outlines Macdonald's way of working. Foreword by Christine Macy, introduction by Brian Carter, essays by Barry Sampson and David Dorenbaum, statement by Ian MacDonald.
