Finne Architects – nature`s elegance

The architecture studio Finne Architects has an established style, all their own, deeply rooted in the craftsmanship of carpentry and largely influenced by the great modernist, Frank Lloyd Wright. Strangely enough, their buildings bear witness to how a specific architectural signature evolves by following one`s own style and attitudes.

Finne architects` houses are highly specific, beautiful works of art and each is unique. Their uniqueness is derived from an interactive relationship with the natural surroundings. A perfect example of really good architecture should be placed in the nature.

I came across these pitures of Bolivia, seen and photographed by a traveler, and had to share – the beauty of nature is exceeded by the humanness of man-made object and scenes.
