Review: World House Now: Contemporary Architectural DirectionsUser Review - Michael - Goodreads
Part of a nice series of typologies and monographs. Decent cursory text and images for the houses, more written detail for the monographs (lots of luck with reading the minuscule floor plans). Good books for the price. Read full review
