Now in pb! This book explores twenty-five contemporary buildings that radically experiment with the architectural parameters of the house, examining the various ways in which architects have tried to create striking new solutions to familiar problems such as form, function and materials. These single family houses will astonish the reader by virtue of their structural qualities and the repertoire of sensations they offer. Each house represents today's innovation and tomorrow's classicism. The volume offers a timely picture of the new housing style for the next century. Architects who have featured work include Lipmann Associates (UK), Dirk van Postal (Holland), Eric Owen Moss (USA), Fulvio Moruzzi (Spain), Sandell Sandberg (UK), Shuei Endo Architect Institute (Japan), Hariri & Hariri (Japan), Jo Crepain Architect NV (Belgium), Marques & Zurkichen (Switzerland), Koen van Velsen (Holland), Pool Architecture (Austria), Artec (Austria), Shigeru Ban (Japan) and David Salmela (USA).
