3 steel houses
Since 1970, the architect Barton Myers has constructed three custom-designed steel residences in addition to developing a flexible prototype for standardized, mass-produced housing. Each project represents a unique approach to a radically different set of client, site and building requirements, demonstrating the versatility that steel construction holds in urban, suburban and semi-rural contexts. Viewed collectively, Myers' work creatively envisions the potential that mass production, using exposed steel frame construction and standardized off-the-shelf industrial components, can hold for environmentally sensitive design. This book is a unique, in-depth study of three major residential projects. Each project is presented in remarkable detail, with full-colour photographs, sketches, plans and text, including the architect's own thoughts on the creation of each home.
