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.
