Notable steel houses of the Modern Movement are assembled in this comprehensive volume.

 

Arranged in chrono­logical and thematic order, the book traces devel­opment of houses constructed with steel frames in Europe, Australia, and the United States.

Examples of steel houses from around the world, including the work of Mies van der Rohe, Philip Johnson, and Jean Prouve, demon­strate that steel structures can provide a better quality of life within a cleaner, lighter home environment.
