Architecture Now! Houses

The latest in Taschen’s ever-growing Architecture Now! series (does Philip Jodidio ever sleep?), this volume takes us on a fantastic visual voyage around the world to some of the most stunning structures designed for dwelling: Cantilevered quarters jut out from fields in front of mountain quarries, stone residences emerge from rocky silhouetted cliffs, and modern glass palaces disappear into the horizon of the seas they overlook. We love these modern houses so much you might recognize some straight from the pages (and covers) of Dwell, like the Floating House by MOS.
