I am in love…
With a book.
Sitting here in prague, I discover that I am surrounded by all of these amazing little summer houses, and that the author of the book, Veronika Zapletalova, lives right here.
what it’s about:
SUMMERHOUSES – Devoted to original self-build summerhouses, a disappearing Czech phenomenon.
The Czech “chata” – or “summerhouse” – is a simple, small, out-of-town dwelling, often improvised and self build by it’s owner. This project documents summerhouses, that mirror the extraordinary personalities of their builders, in both negative and positive way. These summerhouses dot the Czech landscape in their thousands, yet, very often they are forgotten, unseen and very seldom analyzed.
