This is a very funny book of famous buildings made mobile. There are some great drawings which capture both elements of the architectural building which is being represented and its trailer/RV rendition. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0764920243, Hardcover)

Once again, as he did in his groundbreaking Outhouses by Famous Architects, Steve Schaecher pays homage to a cultural icon: the mobile home. With erudite text, he describes the history of moveable homes, from the time of the ancient Egyptians to today's travel-bound tourists. In all, Schaecher treats us to twenty-nine architectural creations. He has all the greats here, with homes "by" Wright, Pei, Mies van der Rohe, Greene and Greene, Le Corbusier, Graves, and more.

Steve Schaecher, a practicing architect, is attracted to the whimsical side of his profession. He believes that architecture is becoming a lost art, diminished by the fast pace of technological change and the lawsuit-conscious construction industry. His focus is on entertaining the masses while also providing some education about the field.
