‘Hide and Seek’

Those of us who dream about living in a house nestled in the great outdoors will find a wealth of ideas in “Hide and Seek: The Architecture of Cabins and Hide-Outs” (Gestalten). With dozens of photographs highlighting interiors and exteriors, “Hide and Seek,” edited by Sofia Borges, Sven Ehmann, and Robert Klanten, is an international survey of one-of-a-kind and prefabricated abodes. There’s a garage that was turned into a glass house, a spherical “tent” suspended from trees, a summer cottage with circular windows that looks like an upside down “V,” a mobile sauna, and an egg-like shelter inspired by the architecture of nomadic people.
