Description

The issue of residential housing is becoming central to the contemporary situation, characterized by large cities, urban sprawl, and general fragmentation in spaces of the home and collective life. The home speaks of a world that is changing rapidly and the selected projects can be seen as attempts to give shape to ways of experiencing the home in the future. Through an analysis of some one hundred works--including projects by Hertzberger, Arets, Holl, Sanaa, Chipperfield, Mecanoo, and Baumschlager & Eberle--this book traces themes such as density, flexibility, constructing on the constructed, and the image of the house. Each project is presented with a technical summary and refers the reader to a complete bibliography. Analysis is made in essays written by leading authors in the field.show more
