Thirty of the world's leading architects, including Norman Foster, Thom Mayne, Tod Williams and Billie Tsien, talk about the houses they designed for themselves over the past decade. What inspired them, what were the constraints, how did their concepts take shape? Michael Webb explores the creative process and traces the influence of architects' houses over the past two hundred years, from Jefferson's Monticello to the creations of Charles and Ray Eames, Toyo Ito and Frank Gehry. Texts, images, sketches and plans are interwoven to illustrate houses that differ widely, in size, material, character and location. There are urban infills, rustic retreats, experiments, and fusions of new and old. They all make a statement, modest or ambitious, and each reflects the personality and tastes of its owner. These architects have accepted the challenge of doing something out of the ordinary, turning constraints to advantage. They give different answers to a crucial question: how can a house enrich lives and its surroundings? Spacious or frugal, refined or rough-edged, daring or reductive, these adventurous dwellings will inspire other architects and everyone who would like to design or commission a house that is one-of-a-kind.

Architects' Houses offers an insight into how contemporary architects live in the homes they have designed specifically for themselves and their family: from warehouses to apartments, from an entirely new build to a substantial renovation. In the absence of a 'client' and a formal brief, architects can be truly adventurous, exploring groundbreaking, unconventional ideas and materials in designing their own houses. In this lavishly photographed book, Crafti looks at the fascinating details of the process involved, as much as the end result. What were the challenges, the hardships and the problems faced? Did ideas have to be modified to suit the budget? Were there compromises along the way? What discoveries were made? Architects' Houses also explores the things that didn't quite go to plan. Their insights and journeys will appeal to those looking for fresh ideas that go beyond the traditional offerings by architects.

"This book details a selection of houses designed and lived in by contemporary architects in a capital city, giving an insight into how and why architects design as they do. It reveals the values and choices of modern designers freed from the inhibition of responsibility to an outside client." "Thirty houses, built from the end of the 1930s, have been chosen to illustrate a range of house types across half a century and representing different urban locations in London. By concentrating solely on houses in London, the constraints of land and construction costs, density, privacy and planning restrictions are comparable." "The approach of the book is both accessible and informative. A brief biography of each architect puts the design in context and a general description of each site includes history, topography, and social context. The architect's brief is considered and the design solution is fully described; external form, planning, geometry, construction, interior design and exterior spaces are all discussed and comparisons are made between the houses. The illustrations include drawn plans, sections, and original sketches or details by the architects; the photographs show elevations and interiors." "Architects' London Houses gives a view of some of the best and most unusual domestic architecture built in London in recent years. This highly illustrated book will be a fascinating and informative reference for architects, designers and interested laymen."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

With more than 40 projects from Europe, the US, Japan and Australia, this book effectively highlights the fact that strong ideas are often more valuable than unlimited budgets
