Book Description

1 Jan 2012 25
This title deals with exceptional contemporary houses from Chile to Croatia to China. Designing private homes offers architects more freedom than corporate projects to express their ideas and try out new concepts. Conceiving living spaces is not without its own set of challenges, for which architects are forever looking for innovative solutions-rethinking the way we inhabit our home and live our daily lives is all part of the job when designing a house. Nowadays environmental concerns have become crucial in building sustainable structures, changing the playing field quite profoundly. This two-volume publication rounds up 100 of the world's most interesting and pioneering homes from the past decade, featuring a host of talents both new and established, including John Pawson, Richard Meier, Shigeru Ban, Tadao Ando, and Zaha Hadid.

5.0 out of 5 stars 2 books 26 April 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is one of the best architectural books of this category you can have in your library. Worth the price I paid as Taschen Books are known for the quality and good photography. Some are projects which appear in other books but there a quite a few new houses which I have not seen before. There are also new angles captured of existing projects. The 2 volumes comes in a cardboard book case, very well done and this cover is of an Ando House.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic 22 Feb 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Awesome set of 2 large books filled with fabulous pictures and details of fantastic properties - would recommend to anyone who has even the beginnings of interest and curiosity for cool & modern homes, architecture and interiors. Truly inspiring and excellent value. Even my family who normally have no interest in such things went through every page of both books !!

1.0 out of 5 stars Nice big books BUT.............. 27 April 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I'm currently researching for building a contemporary style villa in Spain and looking for ideas and inspiration. For me these books are not it.
The books are themselves impressive in that they are large hard cover volumes in a box set (coffee table perfect).
However it will depend on what you are looking for whether the content is any use to you. To me practically all the houses in the volumes hark back to and age (possibly 60'-70's) when contemporary meant 'ugly' and 'industrial'. Its a matter of taste of course but with the contemporary buildings around now showing sleek lines and huge efforts made in aesthetics, this book disappoints. Corrugated steel roofs, block reinforced concrete, the cover picture on the book shown is for me as good as it gets.
