A revealing look at new city living, featuring seventy of the world’s most innovative, extreme and ingenious houses

Featuring some of the world’s most innovative, extreme and ingenious urban interventions, The Contemporary House looks at the many ways in which modern residential design is integrated into the existing urban fabric. Every house represents a challenge, from new takes on traditional typologies through to radical proposals for unconventional sites. As well as the houses themselves, the book provides an insight into the conditions that shape the architecture of some of the world’s major cities, through recent history, signature styles and current conditions on the ground.

With seventy spectacular houses from around the world, including London, New York, Paris, Tokyo, Cape Town, Sydney and beyond, this is a vital look at new city living.
