Book Description

25 May 2013 Architecture Now
No place like home. This title features new houses of elegance and distinction from around the world. 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. Here is a connoisseur's choice of the world's most remarkable new houses. Architecture Now! Houses features architects and practices including: 3LHD Architects, Abalos & Herreros, Ricardo Bak Gordon, Shigeru Ban, Blank Studio, Gianni Botsford, Nancy Copley, Correia/Ragazzi Arquitectos, Durbach Block, Eastern Design Office, Fuhrimann & Hachler, Terunobu Fujimori, Sou Fujimoto Architects, Kotaro Ide, Carlos Jimenez, Jouin Manku, Kamayachi + Harigai, Mathias Klotz, Kengo Kuma, Leven Betts Studio, MOS, Mount Fuji Architects Studio, Plasma Studio, Antoine Predock, Laurent Savioz, Shim + Sutcliffe, Alvaro Siza Vieira, Philippe Stuebi, Zhang Lei, Rene van Zuuk and many others.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great if you know what to expect 2 Oct 2013
By Mr. Fenster - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
If you want a coffee table book that gives a snapshot of a bunch of projects it does a great job. The photos are beautiful.

If you are doing research on contemporary architects it is a good place to find architects. If you need to extensive information on the architects or buildings it falls short.
For my needs as a professional it would get 2 or 3 stars. To be fair I gave a 5 star rating based on what it is.
