Title:The Modernist House
The Modernist House presents a global survey of 100 iconic houses. Organized chronologically, this exciting collection begins in the early twentieth century and traces the development of architecture's response to living in an industrialized world. The selection includes key works from the 1920s and 1930s, and goes on to explore the International Style they inspired. Later works are influenced by architectural debates about regional influences and responses to globalization. Every aspect of the Modernist house is explored: the concern for new materials and technology, the rejection of ornament and a predilection for plain surfaces and open-plan living. Here is the chance to compare the work of the world's best-known Modern architects, through their most significant houses. The Modernist House is an essential guide to this period of architectural history.
