Organized thematically within chapters focusing on ecological awareness, changing patterns of living, and building in both urban and rural environments, the author examines approximately thirty houses from Europe, North and South America, Australia, Asia and the Far East. A final chapter also discusses recent international competitions and commissions for concept houses offering a view into future possibilities for domestic architecture." "The architects featured include among others Marcos Acayaba (Brazil), Gunter Behnisch (Germany), Thom Craig (New Zealand), Foster and Partners (UK), Herzog & de Meuron (Switzerland), Glenn Murcutt (Australia), Office for Metropolitan Architecture (The Netherlands), Patkau Architects (Canada), Gabriel Poole (Australia), Kazuyo Sejima and Ryue Nishizawa/SANAA (Japan) and Williams and Tsien (USA)."--BOOK JACKET
