The very mention of a tower conjures images of the thick-walled turrets of medieval castles, of bell towers atop magnificent cathedrals, of towering skyscrapers, and of ranger stations rising above the dense forest. The tower can be a familiar marker in the landscape, a place of solitude and security, or a locus for meditative thinking.
The 14 projects featured in this luxuriously photographed volume range from completely self-contained homes, to towers affording panoramic vistas for quiet contemplation, to those functioning as home offices, to innovative adaptations and renovations of existing structures.
They include examples from Connecticut, Chicago, Montana,Washington DC, Colorado, Kansas,Virginia, California, and even Japan.
