"Volume 3: Bay Area Modern" is the third in a series of compilations featuring contemporary houses by PlanetArchitecture.com Featured on this CD-ROM are four houses by four of the most thoughtful and provocative architects working in the Bay Area today. Anne Fougeron's Kuhling Wilcox House is a study in surfaces, light and tectonics. She cites Pierre Chareau's Maison de Verre in Paris as a standard in architecture, and here, certainly, that standard has been embraced. Jim Jennings' Oliver House is a museum in a home. Its formal composition and grand aura reads museum while the delicate detailing of materials and spatial organization gives it the warmth and intimacy of a home. Fernau & Hartman's Anderson Ayers House continues the Northern California tradition of Maybeck but adds a playful casualness in compositions, colors, and materials that makes it a thoroughly modern, yet unpretentious and comfortable home. Robert Swatt's Kohavi House is undoubtedly inspired by the works of R.M. Schindler. The forms, materials and relationship of indoor and outdoor spaces exudes the spirit of Schindler's finest residences. These houses all represent highly unique approaches in addressing single family residences in urban, suburban and semi-rural environments.

This CD-ROM features an intuitive, multi-referenced interface used to access the entire e-archive (electronic archive) of video interviews, photographs, writings, virtual reality panoramas, and drawings. The unique graphical interface takes full advantage of the interactive media and makes the self guided explorations both user friendly and enjoyable. This e-archive provides comprehensive documentation and virtual experiences unparalleled by any single medium. Over 60 photographs of interiors, exteriors, and details document these houses like never before. 46 virtual reality panoramas (allowing 360 degree panning) take you there "virtually." 97 minutes of video interviews with the architects allow new insights in understanding these highly unique and innovative architects and the houses they built. A comprehensive collection of drawing (plans, elevations, sections, and concept sketches), models, and computer renderings allow you to study and analyze each project.
