Between INSIDE and OUTSIDE

M. Sauzet
"Natural architecture"
We use this term to describe a dwelling that creates an association between man and the natural world he lives in - light, shadows, the horizon, trees, flowers ...
The author introduces us to a dimension of architecture that is practically unknown in the West, inasmuch as its design methods stem from Zen Buddhist architecture.

Between JAPON and MEDITERRANEAN sea

M.Sauzet - A.Berque - JP.Ferrier
"Architecture and presence in the world"
Beyond the universal space of modern utopia, and at the meeting point of architecture, geography and orientalism, three authors reflect upon the discovery of the meaning of places at the end of the twentieth century.

INHABITING ARCHITECTURE

M.Sauzet - C.Younès
"Between transformation and creation"
"By use of plans, sketches and photographs, we explore an architecture focused on our presence in the world, both distant and close..."
Inhabiting architecture deepens the groove made by the two previous books. It further illustrates the theory whereby man and the world are no longer in opposition.

CROSS-ARCHITECTURE

M.Sauzet - C.Younès
"Re-enchanted space"
This book, comprising forty-three words and ten houses, deals with the practical and theoretical dimensions of natural architecture. The latter stems from the enchantment felt in some of the Far eastern temples, where the use of space extols the union and communion between men and the world.
The values attached to inhabiting a place, which surprisingly have been forgotten, are illustrated here in significant ways by the use of texts, sketches and photographs.
The split between the works of men and nature, brought about by Western culture from the time of antiquity to the Modernist movement, is vehemently contested in this book, which lays claim to being an alternative manifesto for contemporary architecture.

SENSE OF SPACE IN JAPAN

A.Berque - M.Sauzet
"To live, to think, to build"
"The sense of space in Japan", deals with the way Japan has deployed its culture, from the land of its archipelago to the way in which the ego defines itself in its relationship to objects and others.
From the organisation of walkways in a garden, to room arrangements at Edo castle, the former palace of the Shogun ...
Here we learn about natural architecture, how to tun into our senses and our bodies as they interact with their natural environment.
