Book Description

There is probably no more revealing route to understanding the evolution of 20th-century architecture than to examine it through the focus of the individual home. A handful of remarkable houses act as signposts to the shifting preoccupations of the century. From Charles Rennie Mackintosh's "Hill House" in Helensburgh to Charles and Ray Eames' own house in California, the home has been a powerfully resonant reflection of the essence of architecture. Capturing the revolutionary reinterpretation of space that characterized the beginning of the century, and the adoption of imagery of the machine age, the houses included span from Europe to North and Latin America, India, Japan and Australia.

UK Kirkus Review » This is an examination of one of the things in life we identify with most seriously: where we live. Varied notions of public and private are expressed here through houses that range from the early 20th century: the now classic machine aesthetic of Le Corbusier's Form and material exploration mark important changes throughout the 20th century and are presented in the radical iconography of Gaudis Casa Mila, Frank Lloyd Wright's Falling Water, and more recently Ron Arad's carbon-fibre Amiga house. The quality of images and text communicate much of the energy originally underlying the design of the houses. An exciting and accessible book about the evolution of the 20th century house and an insight into how we might be looking at ourselves and how we choose to live at the end of one millennium and the start of a new one. Review by SIMON MILLER (Kirkus UK)
