The Iconic House

The Iconic House

The Iconic House features one hundred of the most important and influential architect-designed houses from around the world. With seminal works from such icons as Le Corbusier, Frank Lloyd Wright and Mies van der Rohe, as well as modern-day greats including Tadao Ando, Rem Koolhaas and Herzog & de Meuron, this book presents a stunning array of the past century's architectural masterpieces.

International in scope and wide-ranging in style, the houses share a remarkable sensitivity to site and context, appreciation of materials and local building traditions, and careful integration of clients' needs. Each, however, has a unique approach that makes it groundbreaking and radical for its time.

Every house has a history, and this book tells the often intimate stories of these remarkable buildings and their architects and clients. Concise, informative texts and fresh, vibrant illustrations, including specially commissioned photographs and a wealth of floor plans and drawings, offer detailed documentation, while a bibliography, gazetteer and list of houses by type offer further information.

Whether Arts and Crafts or Art Nouveau, Modernist or Minimalist, High-Tech or vernacular, these iconic buildings from around the world and across the decades will inspire and delight students and professionals, design aficionados and anyone who dreams of building a house of their own some day.
