What today’s design and architecture professional must learn is how to dominate the seemingly endless options in material resources and design technology, rather than be dominated by them. This professionally documented sourcebook on “The New House” is a select sampling of the latest in residential architecture – projects chosen for their proven mastery in spatial engineering and their expert use of the latest advances in materials and technology. Included are designs from around the world, each explained by the designing architects themselves. Floor plans, sketches and detailed diagrams complete the technical explanations, while hundreds of full-color photographs make for a volume that is attractive as it is useful.
