Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Modern architecture is a story of movements, styles, and genres. But what of the work that remains defiantly unique, refusing to submit to a label or genre? The New Modern House is a comprehensive look at the emerging trend of architecture that favors substance over style, combining functional design and sustainable processes with a straightforward, honest aesthetic. The New Modern House is an inspirational guide to this new architectural concept, describing a diversity of new forms and approaches to the modern house.
