Dominic Bradbury

Each, however, has a unique approach that makes it groundbreaking and radical for its time.

Concise, informative texts and fresh, vibrant illustrations, including specially commissioned photographs, floor plans and drawings, offer detailed documentation, while a bibliography, gazetteer and list of houses by type provide further information.

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