Annotation

A funky and fascinating illustrated book about contemporary architecture for children, based on 33 real life houses.

Publisher Description

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. The text manages to be both "child" and "adult"; it's aimed at children but is just as interesting for adults because it's a mixture of facts and quirk. It's amazing these houses exist. 'Everyone I've shown it to wants one, from 12 year old boys to adults. Who could not choose this book?' Julia Marshall, publisher
