The American House


This beautiful overview of historical and influential home  styles is perfect for the architectural dilettante. Each pages features a large photo with a short paragraph on the chosen house, architect and influences.  Most are highly liveable styles – though are a few houses,  like one by Buckminster Fuller – are quite impractical. Most were highly unique when they were built.  Now some samples seem so ubiquitous that it  feels odd to see them in a design collection. A lovely, quick browse.
