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.

Beautiful books, and an absolute bargain for the price! Stunning photos of many striking and original modern houses, and the floor plans/architects drawings are included as well which is a great touch. Highly recommended.

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 !!

Two large volumes of inspirational designs around the world. Complete with plans and superb images. Lovely quality printing in a box.
For the price this is a truly bargain set of books.

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.
