|Описание:||Images is delighted to present this third volume of 100 fabulous architect-designed houses from around the world. We've found some remarkable homes, tucked away in off-the-beaten-track locations like Dakar, Senegal; Ко Samui, Thailand; the Brazilian countryside; Shanghai, China; Andalusia, Spain; and in more well-travelled locations, including the United States, Australia, New Zealand, the UK, Brazil, Finland, Mexico, Europe, and Japan. Our research uncovered some delightful gems like the 19th-century Belgian castle that has been brought into the 21st century with the use of photovoltaic cells to provide energy; the Tokyo residence that incorporates technology developed by NASA as a coating for its unusual fagade; an experimental prototype using structural insulated panels in the Michigan countryside; an ultra-modern family home built on the footprint of a tennis court in suburban Melbourne; a sprawling, ultra-modern home in central Bangkok, and many more unique residences.
Each of the 100 featured houses is described in the architect's words, accompanied by superb architectural photography and in most cases, plans that assist in a comprehensive understanding of each project.
Like its two predecessors, 700 of the World's Best Houses and Another 100 of the World's Best Houses, this book will provide abundant ideas and inspiration for your own home, and plenty of food for thought for your fantasy home, too.|
