Part of a series that aims to place buildings within their historical context, this text considers Wright's Fallingwater, the Eames brother's Eames House and Alvar Aalto's Villa Mairea. It includes specially produced technical drawings that explain how the buildings were detailed and put together. The text explains how together as innovative and experimental pieces, the house represent pinnacles of modern residential design.
