‘Stephan Maria Lang. Architecture – A Journey to the Soul’ (2012) from Hirmer Publishers
Thanks to our friends at Hirmer Publishers, we’re giving away three copies of the extremely covetable ‘Stephan Maria Lang. Architecture – A Journey to the Soul’. This richly illustrated book is an impressive introduction to the work of architect Stephan Maria Lang. The volume presents six selected projects which Lang has built between 2004 and 2011. Lang’s work is, among others, inspired by Japanese thought and the Californian modernism. The quality of his state-of-the-art houses lies in the surprising views, the play of light and shadow, and in the integration of landscape, garden, and interior into a gesamtkunstwerk.
