Featuring more than fifty major projects designed, commenced or completed in the last four years, 21st Century House looks at diverse visions of the modern house and sets them in the context of the technologial and aesthetic concerns of today's architects. Packed with illustrations and featuring detailed architectural drawings for every project, 21st Century House covers all aspects of contemporary house architecture, from grand modernist pavilions to small urban schemes, including both the celebrated and the obscure. The book emphasies both pragmatic contemporary urban and rural architecture while also addressing the wider debates of social and environmental obligations in an examination of how the projects accommodate these increasingly important aspects of house building today.
