Synopsis: Robert A.M. Stern is one of the country's most prolific and inventive architects. Working within a historical tradition of domestic architecture, he has created rich and evocative designs that call on the forms of the past and the values of American culture while responding to contemporary needs.

The American Houses of Robert A.M. Stern presents thirty-one of his most significant houses in the United States. This diverse group, which ranges in location from the seaside to the mountains to the city, displays the important characteristics of Stern's architecture: a sympathetic relationship to the site, a richness of plan and spatial complexity, a distinctive use of natural light, and elegant interior detail. As demonstrated by the projects presented here-- generously illustrated through color photographs, drawings, and watercolors-- the architect has created in each house a complete domestic world for his clients to inhabit. The visual presentation of the houses is accompanied by an introduction which provides an overview of the common themes in the architect's work, and a project list, which includes detailed information about each project.
