Throughout history, houses have presented architects the world over with infinite opportunities to experiment with new methods and materials for domestic living. HOUSES: EXTRAORDINARY LIVING celebrates the incredible diversity and beauty of the house as never before, from Modernist icons to feats of technological, material, and spatial innovation in the 21st century. Explore the creative imaginations of hundreds of internationally renowned architects past and present, as well as dozens of awe-inspiring houses by lesser-known and emerging talents.

Awe-inspiring. --Airows This new title celebrates the remarkable diversity of residential sites from the last 200 years... Featuring an exciting selection of visionaries past and present... A quick flick through the publication reveals a host of experimental and avant-garde projects: levitating masses, prototypes made of concrete and fibreglass, radically open-plan layouts all come together in immense numbers (and detail). --Aesthetica magazine Houses deftly scans the diversity and innovation of more than 400 domestic spaces... with a single sumptuous photograph illustrating each project. --Design Anthology
