Summary
Who Built That? Modern Houses takes readers on a fun-filled tour through ten of the most important houses by the greatest architects of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. Beginning with a brief biographical sketch of each architect, illustrator Didier Cornille uses a light touch to depict the various stages of construction, paying special attention to key design innovations and signature details. Cornille s charming drawings and accessible text unlock the secrets of modern classic houses, ranging from Le Corbusier s Villa Savoye (1931) and Frank Lloyd Wright s'Fallingwater (1939) to Shigeru Ban s Cardboard House (1995) and Rem Koolhaas s Bordeaux House (1998). Readers of all ages will delight in this colorful introduction to modern architecture s most extraordinary homes
