More than seventy sensational properties showcase the talents of some of the world's most innovative modernist architects. Many of the homes are built on challenging sites, reaching levels of engineering sophistication that could only have been executed by the most creative design firms. Ranging geographically from Thailand to Turkey, New York to Norway, and Mexico to South Africa, these pristine homes are successful experiments in space, volume, and building materials. They also define luxury, affording their owners an unusually high level of comfort and aesthetic pleasure. Many of these stunning dwellings have never before appeared in print, and each includes a brief description of the location and how the architects solved the puzzle of client and site.
