I've had this book most of my life called: Handmade Houses. A Guide to the Woodbutcher's Art. By Art Boerick and Barry Shapiro, published in 1973.
There is a house with a hyperbolic parabaloid roof, timber (log) frame and beautiful.
I can't find any information about this place anywhere.
Does anyone know where this house is? Is it still up? Are there any other images of the place? I'd like to see more of this. I'm thinking to build a house and this is lovely, and I think it could be close to zero energy and nice to be in.
Anyone know about this?
