The modern house today
The modern house constitutes a fascinating chapter in cultural, social and architectural history. The Modern House Today follows on from F R S Yorke's seminal book of 1934, The Modern House, which at the time was seen as a potent challenge to the dominance of the Arts and Crafts and as a portent of things to come. The Modern House Today continues this exploration and considers the impact of such influential modern practitioners as Lubetkin, Gropius, Fry, Mendelsohn, Chermayeff, Breuer, Hill and Goldfinger. The book provides a comprehensive overview of the modern house through newly commissioned photography and drawings, all authoritatively commented upon, from both a historical and contemporary viewpoint, by the architectural historian Kenneth Powell.
