Description

From Mayan lime stone huts, to the balance and symmetry of homes in a Chinese village, to the modern functionality of today's city dwellings, home means many things to many people. No matter the period of history, or the environment in which it is built, design is an intricate part of creating a living space. Home is a complete illustrated guide to the history of home and how architects design a living space to suite the occupants and the community in which they live. Whether it's a loft apartment in the city, a relaxing house by the ocean, a cool retreat in the tropics, or a snug chalet in the snow, home looks at them all! With text from a team of international architects and designers, the title examines how our homes are influenced by our environment - locality, weather, and lifestyle - with a focus on homes designed and built in this decade.show more
