American Architects and the Single-Family Home explains how a small group of architects started the Architects' Small House Service Bureau in 1919 and changed the course of twentieth-century residential design for the better. Concepts and principles they developed related to public spaces, private spaces, and service spaces for living; details about the books they published to promote good design; as well as new essays from contemporary practitioners will inspire your own designs. More than 200 black and white images.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"A fascinating walk through the rise and fall of the Architects' Small House Service Bureau and the change in attitudes about `home' that were supported, and then dismissed, by design professionals. The drawings, details, photographic images and perspectives included provide a unique insight into the development of the American home." - Cynthia Mohr, Professor and Chair, University of North Texas, USA
