Item description for Single Family Housing: The Private Domain by Jaime Salazar r...

Having investigated the topic of single-family housing over many years, the editors of this volume now provide an in-depth survey of their findings. Numerous examples are used not only to illustrate the various projects but also to demonstrate new possibilities. The latest research is examined in a theoretical essay, followed by three chapters: The House as a Box; the House as a Device; The House as a Landscape. These explore topics including abstract residential programmes, prefabrication, low-budget housing and low energy housing. Around 40 buildings, (mostly realised) from architects including MVRDV, K. Sejima, T. Ishida, B. van Berkel, F.O. Gehry and W. Burnette are documented in detail. The findings are complemented by quotations and comments by many famous architects such as Jos Bosman, Rem Koolhaas, Josep Llinas, Dietmar Steiner and Mark Wigley.

Reviews - What do customers think about Single Family Housing: The Private Domain?

Housing in the new millennium  Oct 25, 2000
While this book's fragmented, multiple-quote format can at times obscure the overall threads of the content, it's a very good overview of what is being discussed pertaining to issues of building and domesticity across the world right now. The overall organization of the book through an analogy with physical structure (exo-, endo-, etc.) puts an interesting spin on the collections of writing and architects' quotations that make up each chapter. Overall, I'd highly recommend Single-Family Housing, especially if you're interested in the connections between domestic architecture and the changing forms of today's society.
