Description
Drawing from the roster of residences featured in Record Houses, this revised and expanded anniversary edition of Modern American Houses showcases the most progressive and influential designs from the last half century. Each decade since the 1950s is represented by a portfolio of lauded, debated, and inspired designs. With 325 photographs of seminal works by architects such as Richard Meier, Philip Johnson, Paul Rudolph, Charles Moore, and Frank Gehry alongside contemporary creations by Rick Joy, William Bruder, Tadao Ando, and the firm Morphosis, and others, this book is an informative visual chronicle of the trends in American architecture. Professionals and laypeople alike, and especially anyone who lives in - or dreams of living in - an architect-designed home, will be captivated by this array of houses.
