The Art of Living Without Walls:
Haute Couture Architecture
Haute Couture Architecture bridges the gap between Nature and Architecture and merges into sustainable living that sets a blueprint for our future existence on Earth.
" It is so much more than a book about sustainable design on tented architecture or green hotel and resort design. It is a memoir and the story of a very personal journey from the excesses of modern times to a new state of being, one in which rampant consumerism has been replace by a more thoughtful design for living sustainably and in harmony with the rhythms of the planet. She leads readers to encounter a new paradigm by showing the luxury of simplicity and the beauty of small things. The book itself is a sustainability kit for hotel interior designers, green home builders, and those interested in applying the ideas of immersive experience architecture to their lives and their work.
" From showing you a new perspective to life and the power to change the world yourself and with the surrounding community, the book teaches you about exploring undiscovered natural powers and a life of sustainability.
With a sustainable lifestyle comes sustainability in fashion, architecture and engineering.
The book teaches you about living in tents with bioclimatic architecture and biophilia design, using sustainable materials and energy-efficient construction. The book also sheds light on being independent of the system through a sustainable grid lifestyle. "
Nature Is The Outdoor Waiting Room
An Introduction To The Escape Nomade Philosophy
She was incomprehensible for, in her soul and spirit were one - the beauty of her body was the essence of her soul. She was that unity sought for by philosophers through many centuries. In this outdoor waiting room of winds and stars she had been sitting for a hundred years, at peace in the contemplation of herself.

Living In A Changing World
THE GLOBAL PARADIGM SHIFT FEELS LIKE GOING THROUGH A TUNNEL. SHIFTING FROM THE OLD LUXURY OF MATERIALISM TO THE NEW LUXURY OF SIMPLICITY.
A QUESTION WE SHOULD ALL ASK OURSELVES:
“WHAT DO WE REALLY NEED?”
Humanity is on the verge of a big change that will take us away from exploiting each other and the planet. The book Haute Couture Architecture is created to contribute to that shift by representing a simple-yet-luxurious lifestyle that unveils hidden secrets within nature. The book bridges the gap between the old luxury of materialism to the new luxury of simplicity; an elegant luxury everyone can afford.
