Preview: Architecture Now! Houses. Vol. 3

The beautiful and popular Architecture Now! Houses series is back with a third instalment that includes 60 of the most outlandish residencies around the world.  The Turtle House, located in Biriwa, Ghana and designed by artists Carsten Höller and Marcel Odenbach, is an exciting feature. Japanese architect Tadao Ando’s dramatic house in Monterry, Mexico and Bernardo Rodrigues’ Flight of Birds house in the Azores add to the spectacular homes that appear in this book.

More intimate than a magazine or website, this book allows you to take an in depth look on these private worlds as all the houses that feature are presented with photos and drawings. Written by Philip Jodidio, internationally recognised as one of the most popular writers on architecture, this book opens the door and allows you to tour some of the most exciting new residencies from around the world.
