Overview

A dynamic new trend in residential architecture is documented in this important volume that shows how today’s designers are boldly reinterpreting the work of Le Corbusier, Mies van der Rohe, and other modernist masters.

Continuing a trend that became evident during the last five years of the twentieth century, architects working at the beginning of the new millennium are looking anew at modernist plan types and styles, taking advantage of new and lighter building materials, and working with a fresh range of colors to enhance the sense of space in a wide variety of residential building types. These new looks are shown in thirty case studies, each recorded extensively through splendid color photographs, detailed plans and drawings, and full descriptions of the concept and design process, written by the project architects themselves. Among the distinguished designers are Peter Gluck, Gisue Hariri and Mojgan Hariri, Hank Konig and Julie Eizenberg, and Antoine Predock.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
ea.vol: Watson-Guptill. illus. index. pap. $55.ARCHITECTURE These two new books on cutting-edge design offer sumptuous photographic layouts and generous helpings of plans and drawings but speak to very different audiences. Trulove and Kim showcase 30 projects by the hottest names in contemporary design. Like The New American Cottage, another Trulove-Kim collaboration, this glossy tome offers an irresistible peek into private showplaces designed by virtuoso architects for wealthy, trend-setting clients. Readers of Interior Design and Architectural Record will recognize Olson Sundberg, Wendell Burnette, and other top firms. In this third installment of The New American House, the editors emphasize the architects' heightened interest in environmental sustainability. In contrast, Pople devotes only one chapter to the detached house as upscale design statement. Mobile, prefab, multiple-dwelling, and urban infill housing are among his chief concerns. Forty-one projects from 16 countries illustrate a spirit of authentic innovation in response to current ecological, societal, and technological conditions. The architects' names appear far more often in progressive art and architecture journals than in fashionable design magazines. A senior lecturer at London's South Bank School of Architecture, Pople limits his readership by employing the rarefied language of post-structuralist critique, in which houses become texts "for reading the myths and realities which drive different cultural environments." For large public and academic libraries that hate to deny patrons another gorgeous but soon-to-be-dated picture book, The New American House 3 is not a bad choice; Experimental Houses is highly recommended for academic and architecture collections.--David Solt sz, Cuyahoga Cty. P.L., Parma, OH Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
