More About This Title Houses for Sales


Between expectations that need to be scaled down and striking architectural choices, the search for a home can prove to be a long and complicated issue. In Houses for Sale, architects Michael Meredith and Hilary Sample of MOS Architects transform this quest into an itinerary through a series of houses designed by great names in architecture and show us the peculiarities of each of them through drawings that are full of details. Houses with a roof-garden and unconventional front doors, houses that look like letters of the alphabet, houses that remind us of other houses, houses that don’t seem to be made to live in, houses that float on the ground... After having visited so many of them, why not start building a new one? Published together with CCA – Canadian Centre for Architecture, Houses for Sale is "a metaphor for the architectural discipline and its constant search for architecture”.
