about

Presenting a collection of 25 houses on five continents, Next Houses is a tour of the finest residential architecture of this young century. Author Ron Broadhurst has selected examples from nine countries, showcasing established superstars and emerging architects, including UNStudio, David Adjaye, and David Chipperfield, among others.
 
The products of dialogue between demanding clients and innovative designers, these houses represent the best and most innovative living spaces, including homes created with sustainability and ecofriendliness in mind--such as Werner Sobek's H16 and Krauss Schönberg's Haus W--as well as homes constructed on challenging sites--such as Tadao Ando's 4x4 House or Alvaro Leite Siza Vieira's Casa Tolo. An authoritative collection, Next Houses demonstrates uniquely of-the-moment architecture, and offers up a vision of how we will think of homes in the decades to come.
Ron Broadhurst is formerly Director of Communications for Richard Meier & Partners Architects and, prior to that, was architecture editor at Rizzoli International Publications. He is coauthor of Imagining Ground Zero: Official and Unofficial Proposals for the World Trade Center Site.
