Item description for Urban Houses by Pilar Chueca...
Every city site is a puzzle. How does a new house into the dizzying jigsaw of surrounding buildings? Urban Houses answers that question with almost 300 full-color photographs and full information on innovative city homes. Narrow sites, challenging locations, technical questions--these houses confront the most difficult urban problems. Special attention is given to facades, the public face of a private home, and how each project was joined to the urban fabric of its area.
