MODERN HOUSING PROTOTYPES
Roger Sherwood

This is a valuable reference with thirty-two notable examples of multi-family housing from many countries and four continents, selected for their importance as prototypes. Designed by such masters as Frank Lloyd Wright, Le Corbusier, Mies van der Rohe, and Alvar Aalto. Housing types range from single-house clusters to terrace houses and urban high-rises.

The buildings are illustrated with black\/white photographs, site plans, floor plans, elevations, and striking axonometric drawings.
