"In Detail: Single Family Housing" presents fifteen international examples, reviewing the most important aspects of construction including the use of wood, steel, brickwork and concrete which have all become established materials for this type of building. All plans and details from the base to the roof have been painstakingly researched and the uniform presentation makes the information immediately accessible, inviting comparison and analysis. The authors provide explanatory introductions to the fundamental aspects of planning, from the design of the floorplans to the realization, and they set this type of building within the context of the 20th century, pointing towards the potential developments of the single family house.
