"An excellent resource for educating and inspiring young minds on the subjects of architecture, engineering, and the built environment" - Architect's Toy Box
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 lunar habitation, the book weaves together themes and ideas to create an unfolding visual story. Illustrated with a sequence of extraordinary collages, specially created by artist Adrian Buckley, the book 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 the next generation of architects - and their parents and teachers. The title has won the DAM Architectural Book Award 2015 and was exhibited in Frankfurt.
