Houses from Singapore, Thailand, Australia, Malaysia, New Zealand, and Indonesia are presented in a series of beautiful colour photographs and illustrations and are described in great detail. Each entry demonstrates innovation in building materials, urban planning, and aesthetics. This book is for anyone interested in architecture and design. The ideas presented here will revolutonize building around the world
