How Much House? Thoreau, Le Corbusier and the Sustainable Cabin



This product is currently unavailable.

In 1952, Le Corbusier built a hut at the Cote d'Azur for himself and his wife. Inspired by this, Urs Peter Fluckiger, together with his students, built an ecologically and economically sustainable cabin in the Texan prairie. The projects share the idea of minimal space and its relationship with the surrounding nature. In text, drawings, and photographs, this book analyses the projects and shows parallels and similarities. Inspired by Tolstoy's story How Much Land Does A Man Need?, the author asks: How much house does a man need?, thereby providing a pointed contribution to the current discussion on the requirement for housing.
