American contemporary houses
The American home, resolutely modern, enjoys all the refinements of comfort. These houses are spread over a vast territory of contrasting landscapes: city and plain, desert and seaside. The architects and designers express their imaginations and fantasies with a liberty that combines stubborn pragmatism with aesthetic daring. The forceful and original results of these works are featured in this spectacular book.
