By Adrian Buckley, David Jenkins, Jean-Michel Dentand
Aimed at young, enquiring minds An Igloo on the Moon explores how and why we build. Beginning with the igloo, whose origins are lost in time, and culminating in the latest 3D-printing technology for building on the Moon, the book weaves together themes and ideas to create an unfolding visual story. Illustrated with a sequence of extraordinary images, specially created for the book by artist Adrian Buckley, An Igloo on the Moon ranges through history and across continents. Underlying the narrative is an awareness of environmental issues and the need to reconnect with sustainable patterns of building. It is a book to engage and excite the next generation of architects – and their parents and grandparents.
