Where are the modern cabins? Nov. 29 2009
By millymolly - Published on
Format: Hardcover
The other reviews aren't wrong when they say this book is filled with lovely photos and helpful floorplans. However, as a contemporary architecture buff, I bought this book based on its title and the deceiving photograph on the front cover. To be honest, the front cover is almost an exercise in false advertising as one finds it fairly difficult to find too many 'modern' designs in this book itself. The designs are nice enough, but they could not be classed as exciting or terribly modern and mostly rather conventional. It takes a lot for me to dislike a book on architecture and design, usually I find at least something within the pages to study, pour over and get excited about. However this book bored me from cover to cover and I would have been better investing my money elsewhere. I was very disappointed when it finally arrived and found that it had nothing of interest to offer me. I will definitely steer clear of this writer in the future as she has a relatively suburban take on modern design. This book has been allocated a spot in the deepest, darkest corner of my architecture library and I can't promise that it will see the light of day ever again.

Modern Cabins Dec 17 2007

This pictorial review is very well done. The pictures are clear. In combination with architectural floor plan drawings and explanatory text they give one an excellent understanding of the space, circulation, features and finishes. Included is an extensive variety of contemporary styles from the small to grand, retreats to dwellings, eco friendly to luxurious, thought provoking to simply variations on a theme. If the reader is keen on more than just an out building this is a good read, a coffee table must to stimulate conversation or simply a way to spend vicarious time in another place.

An awesome publication! July 25 2007
By Lynn Sherman - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Each of the 23 "modern cabins" included in this book is unique, beautifully designed and crafted for the specific site upon which it is built.
The photography is spectacular and turning pages elicited many "ohs" and "ahs"!
Kudos to Ms. Kodis!

Purchased for an architecture firm's library. Will be a moderately useful reference, I expect. The houses featured vary enormously in materials and style, from rustic log homes to metal-sided buildings with extreme cantilevers. A few are quite large, and perhaps stretch the notion of "cabin." The only theme these houses have in common is that they're in rural locations. The book is fine as a source for photos of different materials and types of interior space. Faint, but labeled floor plans are included, which is a plus.

This was one of the better cabin books. We are looking to build a new home and this was concisely put together and has great descriptions of each home. Really loved the book!
