Homes on the move
The book by Donato Nappo edited by Ullmann (Germany)
From tents to legendary, eternally popular accommodationon wheels such as caravans and campers; from trailer homes to state of the art mobile structures for events or emergency situations, to the use of containers as ready-mades for contemporary pre-fab architecture: cheap, easy to build and environmentally-conscious. You will and all this and more in this fascinating, original book, with beautiful colour images and detailed information on some key projects and creations in the multifaceted world of mobile accommodation. This absorbing journey started at the beginning of the last century, with the Far Westpioneers and their wagons, precursors of modern caravans, up to the advent of the rst caravans pulled by motor vehicles. We explore the 30s, with the first pre-fabricated wooden houses, then the 60s, and the Utopian constructions of the Drop City hippy commune in Colorado, before coming to the present day, where practicality is combined with respect for nature and the use of materials of low environmental impact.T his book is a must for all those who succumb to the appeal of mobile accommodation, but also for those who design and construct homes on wheels, as anessential source of reference. buy The book "Homes on the Move
