This book showcases some of the most exciting (and simple) architecture I have seen in either person or print. Among some of my favorite architects are Steve Harris, Annabelle Selldorf, Tom Kundig Rick Joy ( the cover shot is of his project in Vermont) and Lake/Flato. A perfect combination of world class photography and intelligent design, Diane’s exploration of “House” is broken down into two very basic themes: Farm and Factory.

Following the aesthetic dialogue in this marvelous book one can see the ways an honesty towards materials plays an important role in defining a pure form.
