H.O.U.S.E., an acronym for Homes that are Outrageous, Unbelievable, Spectacular and Extraordinary, is a delightfully illustrated, brightly colored guide to the world's thirty-five most astounding homes.
Inside you'll find houses like Kengo Kuma's Inflatable House, Ken Shuttleworth's Moon House and Krzysztof Wodiczko's ingenious House for the Homeless. H.O.U.S.E. reveals the layouts of these houses, the radical architects who created them and the audacious homeowners who live in them.
This amazing collection defies all conventional beliefs on what a house is and what it should be, and raises the question: If these fantastic homes already exist, what houses will we see in the future?
