“Better Living Through Architecture”

Der Spiegel is the latest publication to weigh in on Living Architecture, the nonprofit design organization created by author and philosopher Alain de Botton, profiled here previously. In short, according to the article, “de Botton wants to improve the lives of the British population and teach them to appreciate modern architecture. He is hoping to transform society with a series of avant-garde vacation homes designed by top architects.” Click here to read the full article, “Better Living Through Architecture.”

The Living Architecture home featured above is called the Dune House, sited along the seaside, near Suffolk. It was designed by the Norwegian practice of Jarmund/Vigsnæs Architects.
