The modern House reflects upon the complicated relationship architecture has with the terms "Modernist", "Modernism" and "Modern" specifically in relation to the potent concept of the home, reflecting in part the narrative of how some of the most important examples of Modern houses were commissioned and built in the UK. These special examples of British Modernism include such progressive experiments on communal urban living as London's Isokon Building, completed in 1934 by eminent architect Wells Coates, and Berthold Lubetkin's Highpoint, which is today considered one of the most prominent examples of the early International Style. Compared with these urban enormities are private houses, such as the Laslett House in Cambridge, 1958, by the architect Trevor Dannatt, or the Winter House, designed by John Winter as his own residence. Included are an extended introductory essay by acclaimed architectural journalist Jonathan Bell, former architecture editor for Wallpaper* and contributing editor at Blueprint, and projects such as those designed by renowned architect Carl Turner, responsible for the low energy Slip House, a cantilevered sculptural abode of translucent glass, steel and concrete. With images of yet to be seen interiors and restorations, The Modern House illuminates the convergent characteristics of functionalism, truth to materials, flowing space and natural light within the Modern home as a space for living.

* * * 'Informative and entertaining, this publication is a feast for the eyes, while also thought provoking, and offers excellent inspiration for daydreaming about what makes the perfect, modern house.' Wallpaper 'A fascinating selection of innovative homes....this is a thoughtful journey through the evolution of domestic architecture.' Sunday Express Over the last century the way that we live at home has changed dramatically. Nothing short of a design revolution has transformed our houses and the spaces within them - moving from traditional patterns of living all the way through to an era of more fluid, open-plan and modern styles. Whether we live in a new home or a period house, our spaces will have been shaped one way or another by the pioneering Modernists and Mid-century architects and designers who argued for a fresh way of life. Architectural and design writer Dominic Bradbury charts the course of this voyage all the way from the late 19th century through to the houses of today in this ground-breaking book. Over nineteen thematic chapters, he explains the way our houses have been reinvented, while taking in - along the way - the giants of Art Deco, influential Modernists including Le Corbusier and Frank Lloyd Wright, as well as post-war innovators such as Eero Saarinen and Philip Johnson. Taking us from the 20th to the 21st century, Bradbury explores the progress of 'modernity' itself and reveals the secret history of our very own homes.

Volume 4 of the book series 'Scandinavian modern houses' contains Per Nagel's new photographs of some of the most significant Scandinavian private houses built during the twentieth century to elucidate the distinctive character of Nordic architecture, and its fine interplay with the vast nature. Nordic architects have developed a special awareness and sense of clarity concerning one of the most important elements for Northerners: the light! This sensibility for the different tonal qualities of light, and the extremely conscious use of light as the most important form producing and space-defining element, is perhaps the most remarkable common feature of Nordic architecture: The Spirit of Nordic Light! The houses featured are very different in plan, materials and construction.

This volume presents twenty-seven contemporary residences, spanning the entire stylistic spectrum and thoroughly documented with color photography. The United States has always had a great number of stone houses, subject to regional and stylistic variations, as author Lee Goff writes in her comprehensive introduction. That history and variety are alive today, as houses of stone continue to appear in myriad guises - classical, modern, vernacular, postmodern - throughout the country. In fact, Goff concludes that a new renaissance of stone houses is at hand. The exceptional residences in this book, by such renowned architects as Hardy Holzman Pfeiffer, Will Bruder, 1100 Architect, Bohlin Cywinski Jackson, Lake/Flato, and Kohn Pedersen Fox, provide ample evidence of this renaissance. Goff discusses with each architect the design of each house, focusing on the decision to use stone, the building process, and other related choices, while color photographs illustrate both exteriors and interiors.

Modern House 3 is an overview of the most innovative houses built around the world in recent years, following the successful publication of Phaidon's Modern House (1993) and Modern House 2 (2000).
