Modern architecture is a story of movements, styles and genres. But what of the work that remains defiantly unique, refusing to submit to a label? The New Modern House is a comprehensive look at the emerging trend of architecture that favours substance over style, combining functional design and sustainable processes with a straightforward, honest aesthetic.
The book features around 50 projects, 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. The emphasis is on unselfconscious, modest architecture – projects that are at odds with contemporary obsessions with high concept design, big names and brand identity.
The New Modern House is an inspirational guide to this new architectural concept, describing a diversity of new forms and approaches to the modern house.
