The cabin is undoubtedly one of the most widely reproduced housing structures due to its simplicity and flexibility. This building played a crucial role in the formation of American culture and was the practical, snug dwelling choice for settling new lands. Travel back to the colonial era when Germans and Scandinavians developed the first log cabins. Read about how quickly the idea evolved and spread across the continent and, eventually, the planet. Bahamon analyzes the form, materials, and building process of this ubiquitous and malleable structure, and offers a sampling of recent projects conceived by architects and designers from all corners of the world including Brazil, Norway, and Slovenia. See this classically minimalist design in traditional and creatively modified forms, from a romantic, isolated shack to a crystal greenhouse palace. Architects and woodworkers, as well as pragmatic and environmentally-minded folks, will fall in love with this assortment.
