Houses Architects Design for Themselves
Edited by Walter F. Wagner and Karin Schlegel
“What kind of houses to architects build for themselves” ask the authors of this book. Well, we can tell you: not the kinds of houses they build for the rest of us, that's for sure! They are tailor made for professionals, by professionals. And so every detail, from the site, to budget, to lifestyle needs as well as the luxury of experimenting with forms, plans and structures were considerations in shaping the designs of these incredible homes. Awe-inspiring aesthetics aside, this is a super interesting and informative reference for architects, students and layman alike, who can learn from the big guns as they describe alternative approaches to the design and building of their own homes. Steal their plans, steal their ideas and make yourself a house you actually want to live in!
