Villa NM by Architect Ben Van Berkel

An iconic little building in upstate New York by Dutch architect Ben Van Berkel of the firm UN Studio was destroyed by fire in 2007. This house known as the VilLA NM was one of the first elegantly executed and internationally recognized reinterpretation of the Glass House and immerged at the dawn of the internet age as a prelude to an era of sculptural modernism. The cover of Edition29 Architecture Issue 006 pays tribute to this little gem that has temporarily fallen, but now lives on through the stunning photographs by Christian Richters.

Edition29 Architecture Issue 006 continues in the rhythm of the earlier Issues with a visual showcase of stunning, minimal and modern personal habitats from Portugal, North America, Japan, Finland to Mexico City. Featuring audio interviews with, Dutch architect Ben Van Berkel, American designer Michael Janzten, architect Pedro Reis from Portugal, Canadian architect Brian Mackay Lyons, Mexican architect Derek Dellekamp and more.

Also, Architect Ville Hara tells us about his Four Cornered house built to enjoy the acetic life on a remote Finnish Island, with no running water or indoor toilet, this solar powered modern building lets the habitants live in the middle of nature putting to use nature’s abundant resources. Japanese architect Kazunori Fujimoto talks to us describing the House in Nasu and its unique cement walled enclosure. Link in iTunes.
