Glass Houses explores daring and dynamic glass homes all over the world as well as examples of glass as an exciting new element of interior design. The first part of the book,

Pioneers, discusses the work of architects over the last century who embraced the potential of glass, including Mies van der Rohe, Richard Neutra, John Lautner and Richard Rogers. Glass Structures looks at a range of innovative

contemporary homes where glass plays a significant role in the construction of a building. Landscape Houses and Urban Houses explore homes where glass has been used to marry the interior and the exterior through a dramatic use of windows and walls of glass. Finally, Glass Features considers the increasingly popular use of glass as an element of interior design, from screens to stairs and baths to basins. Glass Houses is essential reading for all those wanting to learn more about contemporary architecture or keen to build a house where glass plays a major role - or to simply use striking glass elements in their existing home.

. Features the work of pioneering architects plus projects by architectural luminaries.

. From award-winning author Catherine Slessor.

. Glorious photography by James Morris.
