Description

The most versatile, practical and beautiful of all the materials at the architects' disposal, glass has the power to re-energise tired and dismal buildings and to breathe life into the designs of the most spectacular new ones. From practical solutions to the growing desire for indoor-outdoor living, to the dazzling glass houses that perch in some of the world's most awe-inspiring locations, Glass House showcases the inspirational contribution of glass to the architecture of the modern home, tracing its progress from the first forays of the early modernists right up to the astonishing palaces of today.
