House by Cathy Lang Ho

Book Description

"House" profiles new directions in American residential architecture, focusing only on houses that have been built since 1998. The structures in the book represent the new ideas about how to build houses, how they are lived in, and how they are rooted to their local. The 20 houses featured have been designed by architects such as Rick Joy, Daly Genik, Toshiko Mori, Public, RoTo, Shim-Sutcliffe and Barton Myers. While profiling these buildings, the authors explore a number of issues central to contemporary architecture: the use of unusual materials and innovative building techniques; the relation of a house and its design to the environment; and designing a home that fits the constantly changing structure and way of life of modern families.
