Shelter Cookbook

American publisher and DIY architect Lloyd Kahn made a name for himself in the 1970s with publications on the self-build movement. As an eclectic meta-manual, Shelter Cookbook explores the content of these now iconic publications and relates their ways of thinking and working to the contemporary practices of Swiss architect Leopold Banchini and curator Lukas Feireiss. Shelter Cookbook is intended as a document recording a personal search for unexpected relationships and networks tied in with historical documents and contemporary architectural projects. The volume includes interviews and photo spreads and follows lines of mycological investigation. [publisher’s information]
