Having investigated the topic of single-family housing over many years, the editors of this volume now provide an in-depth survey of their findings. Numerous examples are used not only to illustrate the various projects but also to demonstrate new possibilities. The latest research is examined in a theoretical essay, followed by three chapters: The House as a Box; the House as a Device; The House as a Landscape. These explore topics including abstract residential programmes, prefabrication, low-budget housing and low energy housing. Around 40 buildings, (mostly realised) from architects including MVRDV, K. Sejima, T. Ishida, B. van Berkel, F.O. Gehry and W. Burnette are documented in detail. The findings are complemented by quotations and comments by many famous architects such as Jos Bosman, Rem Koolhaas, Josep Llinas, Dietmar Steiner and Mark Wigley.
