Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0817651640, Hardcover)In this text, Pierre Zoelly examines the work he has done since the 1960s to discover how well his houses have fulfilled the promise to be what they set out to be. Has the architect, in attempting to accomodate individual client wishes, created spaces in which residents can develop and thrive? Or have these private spheres become constricting and prison-like? Did plans go sour once they were turned into reality? Drawing on seven examples of single-family dwellings built in Switzerland and the United States, Zoelly confronts the architect's good intentions with the actual experiences of the people who live in his finished products. The homeowner's perception of life "at home" is juxtaposed with photographs that capture their life-styles from the visitor's eye view. The result is a self-critical account.
