Glass Houses presents 50 fantastic architect-designed homes that utilize glass to maximum effect. The international selection includes early 1930s modernist houses such as Philip Johnson's, Glass House, Mies van der Rohe's, Farnsworth House, and glamorous mid-century LA villas such as Pierre Koenig's, Case Study #22. The book also offers modern examples where new innovations have, if possible, created even more daring glass structures. The book offers a wealth of photographs that show the dynamic, light-filled living spaces that only glass can provide.
A large number of architects are represented: Tatiana Bilbao, Lina Bo Bardi, Ofis Arhitekti, Herzog & de Meuron, Hiroshi Nakamura, Kazuyo Sejima, Philip Johnson, Mecanoo, John Lautner, Richard Rogers and Ludwig Mies van der Rohe.
