Description

The New Modern House

The New Modern House is a comprehensive look at the emerging trend of architecture that favors substanceover style, combining functional design and sustainable processes with a straightforward, honest aesthetic. The New Modern House features 50 of the best recent residential case studies, from single family houses to self-builds, eco-friendly structures, recycled projects, and creative re-uses. All are accompanied by full details, models, sketches, and diagrams, allowing a closer look at their conception and construction. At the heart of the book is the concept of a new authenticity, which demonstrates a logical evolution of modernist design.
