ISBN: 0789310597

Condition: As New

This text surveys houses that defy expectations and explode the notion of what constitutes experimental in residential architecture. The buildings selected for this book have little in common, they come from different cities across the globe, they represent the work of different architects, often with vastly different outlooks and they break the mold of what the notion of a house is. Each project is profiled with images of the completed construction, reproductions of the layouts and floorplans and a description of how the design came to be. View more info
