H.O.U.S.E.

By Aleksandra Machowiak
Illustrated by Daniel Mizielinski

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! H.O.U.S.E. 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.

  • Houses that look like pears, inflatable houses, igloos, tea houses and tree houses, from New York to Copenhagen, Tokyo to the south of Chile, and Iran to Australia
  • Explains the inspiration behind each design and the materials used - including ecological options
  • Display in the children’s section and the architecture section - this book is equally suitable for kids and adults
