Editorial Reviews

Review

"Stern ably tells his stories, as do the spectacular photographs and drawings in this weighty tome. Unlike many neo-conservatives who genuflect at a monolithic altar of the past, Stern has a playfully pluralistic relationship to architectural history and contemporary design. And unlike the hippest of the hip, he has no need to dadaistically defy or defame the architectural canon . . . For that and more, this book warrants our appreciative attention."
—Norman Weinstein, ArchNewsNow

By Shannon Deason on January 6, 2006
Format: Hardcover
This book on Robert Stern, the latest in a series, is very well executed. Mr. Stern really has a knack for anachronistic grand homes, they are a throw back to another time, but with all the modern luxuries money can buy. Stern has a real feel for the kind of gardens that complement each type of home, and the interaction between the two is often quite breathtaking. The images in this book are first rate and the homes are amazing. If you appreciate excellent photography, elegant architecture, and spectacular homes and gardens then you will love this book

I simply loved this book. Houses are full shown, both inside, with architectural details and out. All projects come with their floor plans, of all floors. The pictures are vivid and well taken. I highly recommend

I thoroughly loved his first residential book "Houses." With the amount of work he has done I expected this book to focus on new work but many of the same projects and pictures from the first book were used in this one.

Magnificent photographic assemblage of master architect Robert A.M. Stern's iconic homes. Each page is a museum quality work of art. No detail appears trivialized. Recommend this book as a perfect gift for anyone who appreciates great talent.
