Small Houses: Contemporary Residential Architecture


This book proves that bigger isn’t always better. Now all we need to do is distribute it to anyone thinking about building or buying a home.

“Small houses are no longer synonymous with cheap houses and lack of privilege. Instead, they symbolize a range of culturally coded values: compactness, efficiency, discrimination, discreteness, minimalism. Opening with a detailed exploration of the social and historical background behind compact housing in the twentieth century, this book goes on to feature thirty-seven illustrated case studies that represent some of the best examples of small houses built worldwide within the past decade.” [posted by katie]
