Synopsis: Open house: Tour the world's most exceptional recent homes The third installment in our popular Architecture Now! Houses series includes 60 of the most dramatic new residences around the world. See the extraordinary House Turtle designed by the artists Carsten Höller and Marcel Odenbach in Biriwa, Ghana; visit Tadao Ando?s dramatic House in Monterrey, Mexico, or take off to see the Flight of Birds House in the Azores by Bernardo Rodrigues. Unrivalled by any magazine or website, this new book allows you to explore the most beautiful and spectacular houses, both inside and out. Open the door into these private worlds, designed by some of the most talented architects of the moment. As in all the Architecture Now! books, the houses are presented with photos and drawings, alongside the architects? project lists and addresses, for those who may be tempted to ask Shigeru Ban to design an 800-square-meter house on a cliff in Sri Lanka for them (Villa Vista). But even if the budget for such extravagance is lacking, curiosity will surely see you delving into Architecture Now! Houses 3. Text in English, French, and German
