Craig Ellwood´s career was extensive, including over one hundred documented buildings. Houses were Ellwood`s beginning and the origin of his experimentation. And since he designed domestic architecture up to the later years, the houses provide a comprehensive view of his career. Ellwood´s residential work also benefited from the experimentation in his commercial architecture. The selection has been marked by the state of conservation of the houses. Fortunately, the number of them in good shape represent the breadth of Ellwood´s career. The publication of all this material, rather than undermining the tale that Ellwood told of himself, demonstrates the high standard he maintained throughout his production.
