This volume inaugurates a new series, aimed at a broad readership, and focuses in particular on the configuration of domestic space while also paying attention to the different modes of living that are beginning to emerge in the twenty-first century. The book presents twenty houses designed by the most celebrated architects of the moment, in a wide range of countries. Technical data, plans and a biographical profile of the architect are presented for each of the twenty homes, along with the project report. Located in very diverse geographical settings and designed by figures with an established international reputation-including Glenn Murcutt, Steven Holl, Tod Williams and Billie Tsien, Richard Meier and Rem Koolhaas-as well as by emerging young architects, the twenty houses represent a significant moment of crystallization in contemporary architectural research. The discussion of the architecture also raises an investigation of the profound changes that are now taking place in the institution of the family, in its makeup, in the rhythms of its daily life and in the forms of its leisure and work.
