This mind-blowing selection of the most impossible structures on the most steep cliffs and sharp edges around the globe, shows how architects have used the challenge of slanted construction surfaces to create innovative houses. Discover in over sixty case studies how architecture and nature blend together in even the most difficult conditions.

Architecture can be many things - a per fectly functional space in which to live, work or learn: a spectacle interacting in Interesting ways with its surroundings and users or in contrast a purely minimalistic form stripped of any superflu ous elements. Today's most interesting architects prove that it can also be edgy, quite literally. Our inspirational collec tion of architecture built on the hillsides includes spectacular examples from all over the globe showing that a challenge ing building site does not necessarily mean limitations. Using some of the most picturesque locations, architects come up with ingenious solutions in both structure and materials. Regardless of whether they are achieved by employing organic, curvaceous or minimalistic, geo metric forms, the results are stunning. Slopes, be it in one of the densely inha bited Japanese cities, quiet Swiss mount tain village or in the wilderness of the Chilean mountains, offer a mind-blowing context that allows for unconventional ideas. Architecture flirts with nature in an expressive yet subtle way. The idea is to harmonize, and not to dominate the landscapes even when the architects projects embody their signature style.

While contemporary architecture speaks with many voices, they all respond to diverse needs and aesthetic preferences. As a result, buildings can create a par ticular ambiance. As stressed by Alain de Botton his book, "The Architecture of Happiness". "Houses can invite us to join them in a mood which we find ourselves incapable of summoning." Edgy houses featured in this exciting selection provide an extraordinary experience both visually as well as for their users. It is interesting to examine how slanted constructions harmonise with the steepness of natural sites and how these unusual buildings enhance dramatic scenery. Harmoni ously fusing with the uneven structure of the hill, these 'edgy' houses become fascinating elements within spectacular panoramas.
