A dynamic new trend in residential architecture is documented in this important volume that shows how today’s designers are boldly reinterpreting the work of Le Corbusier, Mies van der Rohe, and other modernist masters. Continuing a trend that became evident during the last five years of the twentieth century, architects working at the beginning of the new millennium are looking anew at modernist plan types and styles, taking advantage of new and lighter building materials, and working with a fresh range of colors to enhance the sense of space in a wide variety of residential building types. These new looks are shown in thirty case studies, each recorded extensively through splendid color photographs, detailed plans and drawings, and full descriptions of the concept and design process, written by the project architects themselves. Among the distinguished designers are Peter Gluck, Gisue Hariri and Mojgan Hariri, Hank Konig and Julie Eizenberg, and Antoine Predock.
