What brings a home to life is the quest underlying the spectacular houses in this volume. Hundreds of color photographs and floor plans show how the personality of each design is as important as its technical aspects. This collection takes us behind the façades into the minds of the architects, leaving no facet unexplored. Unashamedly contemporary, these projects have been chosen for their ability to inspire, and for their fresh originality. Every project in this book is thoroughly documented and profusely illustrated with full-color photographs, offering a wealth of information for architects, builders, or anyone else who is interested in new forms of domestic architecture.
