American house now: contemporary architectural directions
An updated and expanded edition of the hugely successful 1997 book "American House Now," this richly illustrated volume showcases twenty-six of the most extraordinary examples of residential architecture designed in the United States in the last twenty years. The collection represents established American architects, such as Richard Meier and Charles Gwathmey; such internationally known contemporaries as Stephen Holl, Mark Mack, and Arquitectonica; and newcomers Carlos Zapata and UKZ. Superb exterior and interior photographs, as well as plans of each house, are accompanied by individual essays and captions.
