Single-Family Housing follows the highly successful publication Housing. This volume explores the concept of contemporary innovative housing with particular reference to single-family housing using numerous international examples. Having investigated the topic of single-family housing over many years, the editors of this volume now provide an in-depth survey of their findings. Numerous examples are used not only to illustrate the various projects but also to demonstrate new possibilities. The latest research is examined in a theoretical essay, followed by three chapters: "The House as a Box"; "The House as a Device"; "The House as a Landscape." These explore topics including abstract residential programmes, prefabrication, low-budget housing and low energy housing. Around 40 buildings, (mostly realised) from architects including MVRDV, K. Sejima, T. Ishida, B. van Berkel, F.O. Gehry and W. Burnette are documented in detail. The findings are complemented by quotations and comments by many famous architects such as Jos Bosman, Rem Koolhaas, Josep Llinas, Dietmar Steiner and Mark Wigley.

"Like the exhibition of residential architecture currently on view at MoMA, a new book by a pair of perceptive critics from Barcelona showcases single-family houses. But editors Jaime Salazar Rükauer and Manuel Gausa do something more, investigating ways that houses can relate to the individual body, to interior spaces, and to exterior environments. Tapping into a wealth of new residences around the world (all sixty buildings in the book were completed during the 1990s), the editors explore the idea of private houses as laboratories of innovation." -- Oculus
