THE URBAN HOUSE: TOWNHOUSES, APARTMENTS, LOFTS AND OTHER SPACES FOR CITY LIVING. Ron Broadhurst. Rizzoli International Publications, Inc., New York, 2014. 298 pp. with 303 ills. (240 col.). 23 x 23 cm. LC 2013-950440 ISBN 9780847839551 In English.
Publisher's description: This carefully curated book presents twenty-five new and recent spaces for city living. Author Ron Broadhurst has selected projects that represent a set of ideas that can be described as belonging particularly to our time and which will shape how we think of living in the city in the future. Where the great experimenters of the last century were stripping away ornamentation and creating free-flowing spaces for the first time, today's innovators are pioneering research in the potential of new materials for both formal invention and environmental sustainability and creating bold and sophisticated essays in the adaptive reuse of spaces originally designed for other purposes. With the newest work from such design luminaries as Andree Putman, Annabelle Selldorf, and Richard Meier, as well as emergent talents like Barbara Bestor and Messana O'Rorke, The Urban House is a uniquely coherent volume on the best in new residential design.
