Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

A funky and fascinating book about contemporary architecture for children. Have you ever seen a house without walls? Is it possible to pack a house into a suitcase? Can a house behave like a turtle? What kind of house can homeless people have? Would you prefer to live in a moon, in a nut ... or inside a sewage pipe? Architecture is amazing! HOUSE demonstrates that the space we live in doesn't have to be a dull cube. While it should meet the needs of its inhabitants and surroundings, it can also be distinctive, and sometimes utterly surprising. Witty, richly coloured drawings and concise, accessible descriptions of 35 extraordinary houses designed by the most prominent architects of the world.
