More Houses Architects Design for Themselves by Walter F. Wagner; Editors of Architectural Record Magazine
9780070023659 Rear dust jacket notes: "Houses designed by architects for themselves, like the houses in this book, have a special interest for anyone interested in houses - because an architect approaches a house-design problem with more options and more ideas, based on years of education and training and experience, than most families dream of. And those options and ideas are explored in this book. This is a book in which to search for ideas, for forms and shapes, for room arrangements, for ways of siting, for finishes, for details that please you and therefore strengthen your own ideas about a house. It is also a lavishly illustrated picture book - each of the 41 houses is shown in carefully chosen photographs, many in color, and by floor plans and other drawings that will help you understand why the house was designed as it was."
