Ruins covered by sand in Namibia where used to be flourished by the Diamond-industry, the Dovecotes in the Aegean Islands, the licensed quarters and hearses of Japan - this HOUSE compiles the photographs richly depicting characteristic architectures taken in 5 countries, 6 places. From old times, people have casted their reflection of dreams, frames and even vanity on their "house". Beyond the category of merely the architecture-photograph, the momentary emotions and organic transitoriness are uniquely and beautifully co-existing in this photo book "HOUSE".
