A handy resource for all lovers and enthusiasts of house design, featuring over 100 of the world’s most significant residential buildings
The Iconic House features over 100 of the most important and influential houses designed and built since 1900. International in scope and wide-ranging in style, the houses share a remarkable sensitivity to site and context, an appreciation of local materials and building traditions, and a careful understanding of clients’ needs. Each, however, has a unique approach that makes it groundbreaking and radical for its time. Concise, informative texts and fresh, vibrant illustrations, including specially commissioned photographs, floor plans and drawings, offer detailed documentation, while architect biographies, a bibliography, a gazetteer and list of houses by type provide further information.
