§15§Zum ersten Mal in der Menschheitsgeschichte leben mehr Menschen in Städte als auf dem Land. Doch zur gleichen Zeit sehnen sich immer mehr von diesen Städtern nach dem Bauernhof in der Provinz, der Hütte in den Bergen oder dem Haus am Meer. Solche Zufluchtsorte versprechen dem modernen Menschen das, was die Stadt nicht bieten kann: Ruhe, Entspannung, Unerreichbarkeit, Konzentration auf das wenig wirklich Wichtige, wieder Mensch werden. §Rock the Shack zeigt einen Querschnitt solcher Sehnsuchtsbauten aus aller Welt. Sparsam aber anspruchsvoll eingerichtete Hütten, Datschen, Zweithäuser, Baumhäuser, Umbauten, Unterstände und Zufluchtsorte in der Natur finden sich in diesem Buch. Was all diese Projekte gemein haben, ist ein besonderer Geist des Ortes, der die Einmaligkeit einer geographischen Begebenheit mit dem individuellen Charakter der Bewohner und Architekten verbindet. Der Anblick der Behausung von außen ist dem Bewohner dabei ebenso wichtig wie der Ausblick von innen. §07§Das kleine Wochenendhaus, die Hütte in den Bergen, der Kotten am Meer oder das Baumhaus im Wald. Die Architektur der Sehnsucht nach dem Leben mit der Natur. §16§From weekend homes to get-away cabins in the mountains, by the sea, or in the woods, this architecture embodies our longing for lounging in nature. For the first time in the history of humankind, more people live in cities than in the country. Yet, at the same time, more and more city dwellers are yearning for rural farms, mountain cabins, or seaside homes. These kinds of refuges offer modern men and women a promise of what urban centers usually cannot provide: quiet, relaxation, being out of reach, getting back to basics, feeling human again. Rock the Shack is a survey of such contemporary refuges from around the world-from basic to luxury. The book features a compelling range of sparingly to intricately furnished cabins, cottages, second homes, tree houses, transformations, shelters, and cocoons. The look of the included structures from the outside is just as important as the view from inside. What these diverse projects have in common is an exceptional spirit that melds the uni §16§queness of a geographic location with the individual character of the building's owner and architect.
