Houses & Stories

Hans Rooth

Houses and Stories features a personally chosen selection of historic and modern architectural gems. The authors, Hans Rooth and Lage Stone who have worked in this field for many years, take the reader on a journey through bygone architectural eras. Encompassing styles ranging from the Baroque architecture of the Cardinal's palace in Avignon to Le Corbusier's humble, timber 1950s shack on the French Riviera to the modern architecture of the museum in Elsinore, Copenhagen, 'Houses and Stories' explores a wide range of architectural design.

What is common to all the selected buildings, is that they were both cutting-edge at the time of construction and yet, still retain their timeless appeal today. Revealing the motivations of those who designed the buildings and the people who lived and worked in them, this beautiful book allows the reader to understand 'why' as well as appreciate the architectural significance of the buildings it showcases.
