See-Through Houses explores daring and dynamic glass homes all over the world, plus examples of glass as an exciting new element of interior design. The first part of the book, Pioneers, discusses the work of the architects over the last century who embraced the potential of glass, including Mies van der Rohe, Richard Neutra, John Lautner and Richard Rogers. Glass Structures looks at a range of highly innovative contemporary homes where glass plays a significant role in the construction of a building. Landscape Houses and Urban Houses explore homes where glass has been used to marry the interior and the exterior through a dramatic use of windows and walls of glass. Finally, Glass Features considers the increasingly popular employment of glass as an element of interior design - from screens to stairs and baths to basins. This is essential reading for all those wanting to learn more about contemporary architecture and the cutting edge of interior design, or keen to build a house where glass plays a major role - or simply use some striking glass elements in their existing home.
