Summary "World House Now" is the sequel to "America House Now "and "European House Now" in Universe's popular and affordable architecture series, books that are the leading surveys of their field. This volume showcases international talent, including such well-recognized architects as Tadao Ando (Japan), Glenn Murcutt (Australia), Samuel Mockbee (US), and rising stars like Shigeru Ban (Japan), TEN Arquitectos (Mexico), and Edge/Gary Chang (Hong Kong). Domestic architecture is constantly changing; "World House Now" showcases over twenty houses all built in the last three years to illuminate current trends in domestic architecture and house styles. Part of the perennial appeal of modernism is its adaptability to local climates, geographies, and construction methods. These houses illustrate how contemporary design is successfully translated across international borders.
