Contemporary Houses. 100 Homes Around the World

Hardcover, 9.8 x 13.4 in., 8.44 lb, 592 pages

Enter 100 of the most beautiful and pioneering houses of the past 20 years. Featuring architects such as Daniel Libeskind, Herzog & de Meuron, and Zaha Hadid, this is a global digest of the nuances, challenges, and opportunities of turning all the emotional and practical requirements of “home” into reality.

Domestic Bliss

Innovative, intimate architecture from China to Chile

Designing private residences has its own very special challenges and nuances for the architect. The scale may be more modest than public projects, the technical fittings less complex than an industrial site, but the preferences, requirements, and vision of particular personalities becomes priority. The delicate task is to translate all the emotive associations and practical requirements of “home” into a workable, constructed reality.

This publication rounds up 100 of the world’s most interesting and pioneering homes designed in the past two decades, featuring a host of talents both new and established, including John Pawson,Shigeru Ban, Tadao Ando, Zaha Hadid, Herzog & de Meuron, Daniel Libeskind, Alvaro Siza, and Peter Zumthor. Accommodating daily routines of eating, sleeping, and shelter, as well as offering the space for personal experience and relationships, this is architecture at its most elementary and its most intimate.
