Inspiring... Jan 14, 2008
The photos and drawings are captivativing. I felt like I was able to clearly visualize the living experience that Rosazk enjoys in his glass house. While an "all-glass house" may not be right for everyone, the book is wonderfully inspiring for how glass can be incorporated into the home design process.
Fascinating perspective Jan 9, 2008
Glass house gives us an inside perspective on the quest to create a home that truly reflects - in form and function - how families live today. Tom Roszak, the author, provides great insight into the concept and design process, the realities of living in a transparent home, and how technology can simplify our lives. Glass house will make you question the "normal" conventions of interior and exterior residential design - a fascinating read.
Love It! Jan 7, 2008
What a fascinating book. Roszak does a great job telling the story of his family, as well as the work that went into building an extremely nice, and surprisingly warm-looking, home. You'll enjoy it whether you're an architect, family-man or casual observer; the window into the home is crystal clear.
