The design of the house has been a source of endless experimentation and innovation for modern architects, a means to try out new theories, styles, forms and materials. This volume gives a detailed, comprehensive treatment of the history of the modern house, covering all the key examples together with many others that are less well known but equally important. Chapters are arranged thematically and it is through these themes that the author tells the story of innovative domestic architecture from the Arts and Crafts period in the late 19th century up to the beginning of the 21st century. Each chapter covers a wide range of houses, while key examples are examined in greater depth. As well as providing a formal analysis of the buildings, Weston considers how the designs of houses both reflect and influence changing lifestyles.
