Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Tropical Experience introduces a series of design stories with provocative story lines around some of de Reus Architects' most prominent projects. Each of the stories reveals the search that is inherent in the architectural design effort to evoke the spirit of each place by noting the unique circumstances for each client and property. The stories delve into planning and design aspects that reveal how spirit of place contributes to design meaning, and how creative expression can be discovered in pragmatic problem-solving. Within the stories, we uncover comparisons to older or ancient work in Hawaii, Indonesia, Mexico, and other locales, to underscore the significance of timeless principles in creating a harmonic living environment.

Synopsis:

Tropical Experience provides spirited, unique, and rare glimpse inside the mind of an architectural practice offers a platform to explore what makes a built environment — whether home, resort, or winery — succeed.
