This survey presents the most striking, innovative and unusual white houses by contemporary architects spanning the globe from Asia to the Americas, showcasing inspirational residential projects by established and emerging talents, including Aires Mateus, Jakob + Macfarlane, J├╝rgen Mayer and Shinichi Ogawa. From radical new takes on traditional building forms in Latin America to state-of-the-art urban projects in Europe and Japan, each featured house employs the apparent simplicity of white to reflect light and accent materiality, pressing the frontiers of form to the point of abstraction.

A white house is also a statement, translating a desire to stand out, just as it may also create a neutral surface for expression. This stylish and timeless publication therefore celebrates a universal form for all people and lifestyles.
