AIAU: The New Modern House - 1.5 HSW
Hear different perspectives from residential architects on form and design as well as the inﬂuence in materials, systems, and construction on what it means to design a new Modern house. Le Corbusier famously said that ‘a house is a machine for living in.’ It is no surprise that as modern forms and materials have changed the face of our towns and cities, they have had a pronounced impact on the look of our houses as well. Changing lifestyles have produced a reassessment of how we live in our houses, just as concurrent advances in materials, systems, and construction methods have dramatically altered forms and design strategies. The new, innovative, and avante garde - all continue to hold signiﬁcance in house design, while a new emphasis on local and global sustainability has further changed the composition of modern dwellings.
