Book DescriptionFrom backpacks to luxury yachts, tents to trailer homes, the newest book from the author of Blowup, Where’s My Space Age, and Xtreme Houses follows architecture designed to follow mankind.

For most of us, "house" means stability,structure, and permanence. In an age of increasing population and technological gains, today’s mobile society has resulted in a demand for portable dwellings. As dynamic and captivating as Sean Topham’s earlier works, this eclectic mix of fortyinnovative projects illustrates how architects, self-builders, and artists are pushing the limits of form and material to answer the new demands for portability.

Surprisingly, many of the movable houses of today echo history’s earliest and most rudimentary shelters. Some reveal an unprecedented demand for luxury and comfort while others reflect a desire to lessen man’s impact on the earth. Cleverly juxtaposing the old and the new, countless eye-popping photographs of mobile homes, transformable fashions, custom vehicles, and private jets are paired with entertaining texts to explore the new nomadic lifestyle and the evolution of temporary communities. The book shows how our desire for a house that moves can be thrillingly modern, while expressing an essential part of our human nature.
