Dissappointing Mar 14, 2008
BIG BOOK. Picture book. Text is minimal, but is in five different languages. This is probably a clever way to publish books to communicate with a linguistically diverse audience.
The content: Architecture is heavily judged on personal taste, and I confess to having VERY narrow tastes. The "homes" that are presented in this book are generally stark, barren, empty, uninviting: STERILE in my opinion. If I had to live in one of those structures, I would probably curl up and die within a few months. 700 pages and almost no curves to be seen anywhere. I found ZERO ideas to incorporate into the home that I am designing.
I really hope that this book does not represent "the future" of home design. This book inspired only a quiet sigh.
Get inspired Oct 23, 2007
Great book to get inspired for your new home. I already spent many hours with this book, for my own ideas, but also with friends to help them get inspired for their new place to be.
The whole book is one big stack of high quality pictures about residential architecture. It delivers exactly according to its title; Architecture Inspirations.
One of my favorites!
Beautiful Idea Book of Contemporary Homes Jun 25, 2006
This is a giant idea book about designing houses. It basically consists of several hundred photographs of houses from around the world. The houses are broken into categories: City Houses, Mountain Houses, Houses in Small Towns, Country Houses, Suburban Houses, Waterfront Houses. The styling is almost entirely contemporary with a with a an emphasis on novel, innovative designs showing technical advances in construction technology as it is applied to single family homes.
The book is almost wordless. The format is to show a couple of outside pictures of the home followed by a few pictures of inside rooms. Most of the homes appear to be quite small although it is difficult to tell from just pictures. Some of the homes are definitely not small.
There is no identification of the location of the homes. But I found that this didn't matter. Sometimes you see a sign in Spanish, or another language, but it doesn't really matter. A home is the suburbs of Madrid, or Washington, DC, it's all the same. The homes are striking in appearance, clearly reflecting the best that today's architects can do. Beautiful idea book.
