Product description

Make yourself at home. This title features cutting-edge private dwellings. Beyond the fundamental notion of shelter, what defines a house? The broad-ranging selection of extraordinary dwellings in the "Architecture Now! Houses" series shows the concept to be infinitely malleable: one house seems to hover above the ground, another is embedded in it; some have stark minimal lines, others have tropical gardens; some are palatial, others monastic - all of them displaying remarkable structural and aesthetic mastery. From postmodern castles to hi-tech cabins, the "Architecture Now! Houses" series is a connoisseur's choice of the world's most remarkable new houses. "Architecture Now! Houses 2" features architects and practices including: Amarterrance, Arkpabi, Eduardo Arroyo - NoMAD Arquitectos, Atelier Bow-Wow, Bellemo & Cat, Bernardes + Jacobsen Arquitetura, Alberto Campo Baeza, Casey Brown, Padraic Cassidy, Celula Arquitectura, Jose Cruz Ovalle, dRMM, dRN Architects, Thomas Fabrinsky, Fearon Hay, Carlos Ferrater, Float, FOVEA, Sou Fujimoto Architects, Alexander Gorlin, Jorge Gracia Garcia, Graft, Hangar Design Group, HHF, Jun Igarashi, Yosuke Inoue, Toyo Ito, Michael Jantzen, Johnston Marklee, Rick Joy, Stephen Kanner, Taiji Kawano, KWK PROMES, Jurgen Mayer H., McBride Charles Ryan, Richard Meier, Joeb Moore, Olson Kundig, Palerm & Tabares de Nava, Sara Pellegrini, Pezo Von Ellrichshausen Arquitectos, Powerhouse Company, PRODUCTORA, RCR Arquitectes, Rocha Tombal, Todd Saunders, Hartwig N.
