Overview

Beautiful contemporary homes displayed in all of their grandeur

Single-family homes, urban dwellings, vacation getaways, sustainable buildings, luxury prefab designs, and plans for future homes comprise this collection of breathtaking photographs and insightful commentary that celebrates the artistic contributions of almost 70 of the finest architects working today. From classical to avant-garde, all of the featured homes are stylistically diverse but have a distinct timelessness about them, a tribute to the foresight of their creators’ vision. The inspirations of such professionals as David Hovey, Robert Gurney, Brad Lamoureux, Margaret McCurry, and Richard Meier are revealed, as is the amount of work and dedication that went into each project. Spanning British Columbia, coastal California, Chicago, New England, the South, and many scenic destinations in between, 21st Century Homes includes a helpful resource index with short biographies of the architects.
