This is a coherent and authoritative collection of the best and most innovative house designs for the twenty-first century. Presenting a collection of thirty houses on five continents, Next Houses is a tour of the finest residential architecture of this young century. Author Ron Broadhurst has selected examples from nine countries, showcasing established superstars as well as the work of emerging architects, including SANAA, David Adjaye and David Chipperfield, among others. The products of dialog between demanding clients and innovative designers, these houses represent the best and most innovative living spaces, including homes created with sustainability and eco-friendliness in mind such as Werner Sobek's H16 and Krauss Schonberg's Haus W as well as homes constructed on challenging sites such as Tadao Ando's 4X4 House or Alvaro Leite Siza Vieira's Casa Tolo. A coherent and authoritative collection, "Next Houses" demonstrates uniquely of-the-moment architecture and offers up an idea of how we will think of homes in the decades to come.
