Overview

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. From classical to avant-garde, all of the featured homes are stylistically diverse but have a distinct timelessness about them, a tribute to the foresight of their creators’ vision. The inspirations of such professionals as David Hovey, Robert Gurney, Brad Lamoureux, Margaret McCurry, and Richard Meier are revealed, as is the amount of work and dedication that went into each project. Spanning British Columbia, coastal California, Chicago, New England, the South, and many scenic destinations in between, 21st Century Homes includes a helpful resource index with short biographies of the architects.

Editorial Reviews

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.
