Living in the New Millennium showcases housing buildings from around the world, built already in the 21st century. There are few pages for each project, but the richness of examples you get is a great advantage. It is not a detailed book about each work, so you should expect just a few photographs and the main drawings. It contains some well-known projects but also integrates unknown works from the beginning of the century.
- Wide selection of houses throughout the world
- Short texts introducing each project allow for a quick contextualization
- Collection of unusual projects, providing new ways to look at housing design
This book contains several private houses from around the world, which means that a wide variety of examples are present. Each project deserves around 4 pages where some photographs and the main plans and sections help the reader to understand the house quickly. The main advantage of this book is its diversity, as it collects some of the most innovative and carefully-designed houses existing at the time of the publication of this book.
The book as object
Living in the New Millennium is a small coffee-table book, with soft beige paper and matte ink, making it an excellent book to read in a relaxed way. Far from being a technical or detailed book, it is however a good companion to show what has been done around the world in the beginning of this millennium and a good book to enjoy.
