Across small cottages and lavish villas, beach houses and forest refuges, discover the world’s finest crop of new homes. This dependable global digest features such talents as Shigeru Ban, MVRDV, and Marcio Kogan alongside up-and-coming talents like Xu Fu-Min, Vo Trong Nghia, Desai Chia, and Shunri Nishizawa. The result is a sweeping survey of the contemporary house, and a stark reminder that we all have a lot more in common than might be expected.

Across small cottages and lavish villas, beach houses and forest refuges, discover the world’s finest crop of new homes. This cutting-edge global digest features such talents as Shigeru Ban, MVRDV, and Marcio Kogan alongside up-and-coming names like Aires Mateus, Xu Fu-Min, Vo Trong Nghia, Desai Chia, and Shunri Nishizawa. Here, there are homes in Australia and New Zealand, from China and Vietnam, in the United States and Mexico, and on to less expected places like Ecuador and Costa Rica.

The result is a sweeping survey of the contemporary house, and a reminder that we all have a lot more in common than might be expected. Surely because of the rise of the Internet as the most accessible form of information, talented and cosmopolitan architects are coming forward and building innovative, spectacular houses around the globe. Especially where houses are concerned, there is no longer a deep divide between developed and developing countries: great homes are being built everywhere by talented architects.
