Not what I expected July 12 2013
By LA - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Most of the architects are from Japan. Not very many designs that I can relate to or pass ideas on to my clients here in the US. Good table top book to browse through once or twice.

Good but not great March 18 2013
By Victor Amaral - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This set has A LOT of houses. It covers some of the main starchitects working on a less glamourous approach, since they had to shift from public and monumental spaces to the intimate and particular programs which is implied in the unifamiliar house.

Still, there is a LOT of information missing. There are some projects in the book that have 2 or 3 pictures... no sections, plans, they don't have anything.

After all, I'm happy with it. It has a good price and it is gonna help me out throughout my life.

Great product for the Price! Jan. 1 2013
By Emiliano J. Marquez Jr. - Published on Amazon.com

I honestly thought this was a smaller book. I was more or less getting it to qualify for Super Saver Shipping on another item =P. Discovering that it was a 2-volume, large pictured, high quality books I was excited to go through it. I would definitely recommend this item to anyone with an architectural career, background, or even just an enthusiast.

Total page-turner. Dec 29 2012
By Dana - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
It's two volumes of beautiful pictures and descriptions of both the architect(s) and the design itself. I own many design books, some more for learning purposes, and others because I simply enjoy architectural eye candy. In this case, the books are larger with big color-print photos, and there are houses featured that I haven't seen before. It's not the ultimate best I've ever seen, but it's certainly far from the worst.

Excellent March 6 2013
By Paul Drinkwine - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This collection of contemporary houses has given me ideas for retirement as well minor redecorating projects for now. Granted most homes in the collection are a bit out of my range right now but it gives me aspiration when cracking the books open.
