  • About the Edition

    These are no case studies of the shoemaker"s son, but rather houses architects have designed and built for themselves, preserving the most daring, sensual, and clever design moves, details, and materials for the spaces they and their families occupy. Thirty world-famous architects, from seventeen countries on four continents, open their doors and invite us in for an intimate tour of their own homes. In the process, they offer a treasure trove of ideas for home owners, practitioners, and interior designers, where professional experimentation intersects with day-to-day living in contemporary spaces showcasing diverse design concepts tailor-made to specific locations, costs, and materials, detailed in 400 photographs, drawings, and plans. This lavishly illustrated book brims with ideas and inspiration from many of the world"s best architects, from Thom Mayne and Jim Olson to Jennifer Benningfield, about where and how they live and how we can all live more comfortably, too.
