    The construction of small houses is increasing. It is an accessible option, adaptable to any environment, eliminating unnecessary elements to include only basic functions without renouncing comfort.

    Through the pages of this book, we travel to countries across the world to discover a little bit about ways of life in those countries and how this is reflected in architecture. Mountain houses, city houses or on the coast, in many different styles, but all with a common bond; careful construction and well thought out aesthetics to optimise space whilst respecting the environment and integrating the house into its surroundings.

    How Living Spaces Reduced to the Max Can Maximize the Quality of Life

    The desire for as much space as possible on as little room as necessary is neither automatically connected to an alternative lifestyle nor is it a protest against our luxury-oriented society. Sometimes it simply makes life easier, more comfortable, and more economical. The “Tiny House Movement” lifestyle trend, which began in the United States, has spread throughout the entire world, intensified by the construction and financial crisis.

    This title presents contemporary projects from around the world that take on the simple yet challenging task to develop enthralling room concepts and spatial solutions for the efficient use of the smallest living spaces. The furnishings need to be carefully designed and compact to make the most of the available space, such as a bench that can be converted into a bed. These mini interiors investigate the possibility of providing a better setting for everyday living based on what is necessary, what is desired, and what is possible.

    Whether strict and orthogonal or undulating and curved, whether rough and natural or polished and elegant…

    Wood is nature’s greatest resource, embedded in the history, culture and life of humans worldwide. And it is ingenious as building material: remarkably malleable and at the same time resilient, recyclable in many ways and reducing greenhouse gases, universally applicable and locally available, renewable and beautiful. Today, new pro-cessing technologies extend the spectrum of its possible applications and the combinability with other building materials, enabling new technical and design solutions. In short, almost anything – structurally – can be done with it. Whatever architects and interior designers think of can be realized with wood: from energy-efficient houses via multi-story academic facilities to the interiors of fashion-able bars. The traditional building material has become ultra-contemporary and increasingly cutting-edge, offer-ing exciting possibilities for architectural design.

    A dazzling dual portrait of Frank Lloyd Wright and early twentieth-century New York, revealing the city's role in establishing the career of America's most famous architect Frank Lloyd Wright (1867 1959) took his first major trip to New York in 1909, fleeing a failed marriage and artistic stagnation. He returned a decade later, his personal life and architectural career again in crisis. Booming 1920s New York served as a refuge, but it also challenged him and resurrected his career. The city connected Wright with important clients and commissions that would harness his creative energy and define his role in modern architecture, even as the stock market crash took its toll on his benefactors. Wright denounced New York as an unlivable prison even as he reveled in its culture. The city became an urban foil for Wright's work in the desert and in the organic architecture he promoted as an alternative to American Art Deco and the International Style. New York became a major protagonist at the end of Wright's life, as he spent his final years at the Plaza Hotel working on the Guggenheim Museum, the building that would cement his legacy. Anthony Alofsin has broken new ground by mining the recently opened Wright archives held by Columbia University and the Museum of Modern Art. His foundational research provides a crucial and innovative understanding of Wright's life, his career, and the conditions that enabled his success. The result is at once a stunning biography and a glittering portrait of early twentieth-century Manhattan.

Nowadays, they are no longer designed by individual solo fighters but also by renowned architects who take on the simple yet challenging task and develop the enthralling room concepts and spatial solutions that are presented in this volume.
