The New 100 Houses x 100 Architects is a celebration of diversity. Satisfying our natural and abiding curiosity about how other people live, and our endless quest to improve our own homes, this superb volume showcases architectural trends, provides insight into vernacular residential architecture, and is a rich source of ideas for every house designer- professional or armchair. Many of the houses portrayed in this book turn conventional notions of appearance and design upside down in their quest for perfection, while many reflect the emerging trend toward sustainable design while proving energy efficiency and style are not mutually exclusive concepts.
The 100 houses featured, (designed by 100 different architects) range from deceptively simple to over-the-top gorgeous. Among the awe-inspiring projects in this book are contemporary houses slotted into traditional settings, such as a modern project on a cobbled street in Ljubljana, Slovenia; a utilitarian structure nestled in a vineyard in pastoral New Zealand; a concrete polyhedron incised into a minuscule spot in the Tokyo metropolis; and a house on the Indian Ocean in Mozambique, whose colours contrast against the azure blues of sea and sky.
