Glass Houses explores daring and dynamic glass homes all over the world, plus examples of glass as an element of interior design. The first chapter, Pioneers, discusses the work of the architects of the last century who embraced the potential of glass, including Mies van der Rohe, Richard Neutra, John Lautner and Richard Rogers.

Glass Structures looks at innovative contemporary homes where glass plays a significant role in the construction. Landscape Houses and Urban Houses explore homes where glass has been used to marry the interior and exterior through a dramatic use of windows and walls of glass.

Finally, Glass Features considers the increasingly popular use of glass as an element of interior design. This is essential reading for all those wanting to learn more about contemporary architecture, keen to build a house where glass plays a major role or to introduce striking glass elements to an existing home.
