H.O.U.S.E., an acronym for Homes that are Outrageous, Unbelievable, Spectacular and Extraordinary, is a delightfully illustrated, brightly colored guide to the world's thirty-five most astounding homes.

Inside you'll find houses like Kengo Kuma's Inflatable House, Ken Shuttleworth's Moon House and Krzysztof Wodiczko's ingenious House for the Homeless. H.O.U.S.E. reveals the layouts of these houses, the radical architects who created them and the audacious homeowners who live in them.

This amazing collection defies all conventional beliefs on what a house is and what it should be, and raises the question: If these fantastic homes already exist, what houses will we see in the future?

Synopsis:

A brightly colored, beautifully illustrated guide to the world's most astounding homes—as well as their audacious owners and the radical architects who created them. An illustrated treat thats equally captivating for its quirky, cartoonish design as for the bizarre and wonderful architecture it illuminates, H.O.U.S.E. immediately stands out from other architecture books, appealing to curious minds, inspiration-seeking artists, and parents looking to creatively engage their children. An international award-winner from the famous polish design studio, Hipopotam, H.O.U.S.E. is a window into a more vibrant, surprising, and delightful world—one where the imagination can become as real as the place you call home.
