-Kansas City Star


A brightly colored, beautifully illustrated guide to the world's most astounding homes—as well as their audacious owners and the radical architects who created them. An illustrated treat that’s equally captivating for its quirky, cartoonish design as for the bizarre and wonderful architecture it illuminates, H.O.U.S.E. immediately stands out from other architecture books, appealing to curious minds, inspiration-seeking artists, and parents looking to creatively engage their children. An international award-winner from the famous polish design studio, Hipopotam, H.O.U.S.E. is a window into a more vibrant, surprising, and delightful world—one where the imagination can become as real as the place you call home.
