    I think this book is really excellent All of the houses featured are small under 1,250 sq ft but extremely livable Each house has a brief description, a drawing of the house, floor plans yay , and often axonometric drawings or sections super yay Some even have construction ready sections Too many architecture books don t include floor plans so it s very difficult to get a feel for the interior space but this one really has everything you need I love the variety of styles included, from traditional to architectural although the sort of artistic architectural pieces seem a little stuck in postmodernism rather than featuring some of the newer developments I also really like the focus on sustainability and energy efficient design that many of the houses have, something which didn t seem necessarily intended but is a corollary to reasonably sized homes I really recommend this boo...

  8. says:

    I enjoyed this book I just wish there were a few photos of finished houses.
