The Hidden Architecture of Big Sur Text by Lisa Crawford Watson Photography By Doug Steakley
de Introduction By Clint Eastwood
The Hidden Architecture of Big Sur explores and documents many of the striking residences that are tucked away, out of sight, along the Big Sur coastline. In addition to the documenting the homes, we interviewed the architects and include bios of all of them. Unfortunately the person who hired us for this project did not publish the book, so we have published it through Blurb.com.
This book is a beautifully arranged documentary of many of the most beautiful and unique residences along the Big Sur coastline.
