How might an architecture for the future address our current ecological crisis? Borrowing materials from the environment and offering attentive respect to nature and culture, adobe architect Didi Contractor’s buildings both inspire us and reconnect us to our heritage.
Joginder Singh’s evocative photography transports us to these adobe buildings, sharing the aesthetic experience of viewing their exteriors, interiors, and small details of choice. In the accompanying text, Contractor discusses the roots of her vision and her work, which came late in her long life, emerging from a deep concern for our planetary future.
