A+U 05:2016 SPECIAL ISSUE: Beginning with the House


The Special Issue Features the the Very First Houses Designed by 65 World-Renowned Contemporary Architects. Through the Two Questions We Asked to each of the Architects, We Explore Their Visions On
Architecture and the Era that These Houses Were Built.

Q1. What Kind of Vision Did You have for this House?
Q2. How Did this Vision Evolve Over the Years?

Houses are Good Starting Points, in Particular for Young Architects, to Create Their Works in the Real World and Express Their View of Architecture. Houses in this Book Include Both the Exact Fist Works and One of Earlier Works in Their Career. We Would Like to Introduce how Architects Tried to Connect Urban, Cultural, or Historical Contexts to Houses when they are to Realize Their Fresh View of Architecture. in Addition, After some Years, they are Now Handling Large-Scale Architecture as Well, and the Other Focus of this Book is on how they Look Back at Their Starting Points. The Included Works have a Time Range of about 60 Years and the World which each Architect Witnessed has Surely Changed. However, Nothing has Changed in Their Attitude of Struggling with Design in Order to Evoke the Joy of Living with a Small Place, Houses. it Would be Great if You Could Feel Such Energies from this Book.
