Interest in contemporary domestic life has exploded in the past few years, with magazines, museum exhibitions and television showcasing the latest experiments in residential architecture. "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). This book presents 33 houses in 15 countries, by both distinguished architects and up-and-coming young designers, including David Adjaye (London), Tadao Ando (Japan), Carlos Ferrater (Spain), Sean Godsell (Australia), Kengo Kuma (China), Richard Meier (United States), Julie Snow (Canada), and Werner Sobek (Germany), among others.
The houses are organized in three thematic sections that address integrating architecture and landscape, negotiating unusual programs and client needs, and building with new materials and energy-saving technologies. Each house exemplifies a unique approach to contemporary livings and design, such as the Small House in Tokyo )Kazuyo Sejima / SAANA), designed to accommodate a family of three on a tiny, 60-square-meter lot; the Carter Tucker House in Australia (Sean Godsell) and Nenning House in Austria (Cuckrowicz.Nachbaur), which interpret and update vernacular wood styles; and the Koehier House in Canada (Julie Snow) and Weiss House in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico (Steven Harris), both vacation getaways that take advantage of rigged, beautiful sites.
