Synopsis: "House design is a matter of care—care on the part of the clients who generate the need for houses and greater care on the part of the people with expertise, the architects and builders of houses."—from the Introduction
Throughout his distinguished career as one of America's leading residential architects, Alfredo DeVido has brought enormous care to both the aesthetics and livability of his houses. Influenced by the architectural traditions of Scandinavia and Japan, where he has lived and worked, DeVido's own work is renowned for its combination of good design, good value, and economic operation.
In House Design: Art and Practice, DeVido shares his personal design methodology, his innovative "modular system," and insights into the technical, aesthetic, and social dimensions of house design. Writing in a lively, engaging style, he examines virtually every aspect of a house, inside and out, from design and planning to construction and furnishing. He offers fresh insights into the basic human needs of comfort, privacy, and safety, and also sheds new light on the classic intangibles that contribute to good architecture—intellect, beauty, and emotion.
