Single-family homes, urban dwellings, vacation getaways, sustainable buildings, luxury prefab designs, and plans for future homes comprise this collection of breathtaking photographs and insightful commentary that celebrates the artistic contributions of almost 70 of the finest architects working today.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

Lookalike box houses belong to the past. That seems to be the subtext of this gathering of imaginative home designs by almost 70 contemporary architects. This large-scale pictorial contains works by Margaret McCurry, David Hovey, Robert Gurney, Brad Lampureux, and Richard Meier. The subjects are various, ranging from family homes and urban dwellings, to vacation getaways, sustainable buildings, luxury prefabs, and futuristic abodes.
