The 20 houses in this book represent a cross-section of the most innovative residential design completed worldwide since the 1990s by some of the most talked-about architects working today. Included are celebrated architects such as Rem Koolhaas, Steven Holl, and Richard Meier, as well as emerging talents such as fABRica de Arquitectura in Mexico and Graham Phillips in England. Houses are located in widely diverse areas - from the heart of Manhattan to the seaside in Greece, and from the Spanish countryside to the suburbs of London. Beginning where Modernism left off, these architects are using the private house as a laboratory to explore new issues in domestic living. The book begins with an introduction that discusses the profound changes that are now taking place in the institution of the family, in its makeup, in the rhythms of its daily life and in the forms of its leisure and work. Each house is showcased on 12 pages that open with a brief project description, biographical profile of the architect, and project data. The following spreads present plans, elevations, and sections, and full-colour photographs.
