How Much House?
Thoreau, Le Corbusier and the Sustainable CabinThe space we live in, reduced to a minimum, has been fascinating us for generations - the writer Thoreau lived in a self-built hut in the forest from 1845 -1847. In 1952, Le Corbusier built a hut at the Cote d'Azur for himself and his wife. Inspired by this, Urs Peter Fluckiger, together with his students, built an ecologically and economically sustainable cabin in the Texan prairie. All three projects share the idea of minimal space and its relationship with the surrounding nature. In text, drawings, and photographs, this book analyses the three projects and shows parallels and similarities. Inspired by Tolstoy's story How Much Land Does A Man Need?, the author asks: "How much house does a man need?", thereby providing a pointed contribution to the current discussion on the requirement for housing.

How Much House? is an excellent synopsis of the issues involved and gives a coherent overview of the three cabins as well as details of their design and construction. The distillation of images provided - both drawings and photos, historic and contemporary - is the perfect accompaniment to the text in setting tone and providing explanation. W. Mark Gunderson in: Texas Architect 5/6 2017, pp. 20-21
