The modern house constitutes a fascinating chapter in cultural, social and architectural history following on from FRS Yorke's seminal book of 1934, The Modern House. The Modern House Today continues this exploration and considers the impact of such influential modern practitioners as Lubetkin, Gropius, Fry, Mendelsohn, Chermayeff, Breuer, Hill and Goldfinger. The book provides a comprehensive overview of the modern house style through newly commissioned photography and drawings, all authoritatively commented upon from a historical and contemporary viewpoint by the architectural historian Kenneth Powell. Nominated for the John Kobal Foundation Photography Book Award, 2003.
