If You Lived Here: Houses of the World (2011)
Step into unique homes from around the world and discover the many fascinating ways in which people live and have lived. With intricate bas-relief collages, author and illustrator Giles Laroche uncovers the reason why each home was constructed the way in which it was, then lets us imagine what it would be like to live in homes so different from our own.
If you lived in the mountains of southern Spain, your bedroom might be carved out of a mountain. If you lived in a village in South Africa, the outside of your house might tell the story of your family. And if you lived in a floating green house in the Netherlands, you could rotate your house to watch both the sunrise and sunset.
