The New Modern House is a comprehensive look at the emerging trend of architecture that favors substanceover style, combining functional design and sustainable processes with a straightforward, honest aesthetic. The New Modern House features 50 of the best recent residential case studies, 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. At the heart of the book is the concept of a new authenticity, which demonstrates a logical evolution of modernist design.

Book Description Laurence King Publishing, United Kingdom, 2010. Hardback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. 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 or genre? 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 New Modern House features around 50 residential case studies, 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. At the heart of the book is the concept of a new authenticity, and how an emerging anti-aesthetic approach demonstrates a logical evolution of modernist design. The book contains work from around the world, including France, Germany, Spain, Portugal, Belgium, Sweden, Switzerland, Japan, Norway, and more. 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 new approaches to the modern house. Bookseller Inventory # AA29781856696845
