Top 10 Wild Architecture

Nothing beats the great outdoors — except when they involve below-freezing temps, blinding blizzards, murky fogs, and perilously rugged terrain. (Look for a story later this week on A+ juror and eco-explorer David de Rothschild, who has weathered some of the harshest conditions on his expeditions around the globe.) That’s why we love these cozy abodes — shacks, bunkers, and other shelters that provide stunning views as well as refuge when Mother Nature gets a little too wild.
