Didier Cornille

“Who Designed That? A fun-filled tour of 10 of the most significant homes designed by the finest architects of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries is provided to readers in Modern Houses. Didier Cornille, the illustrator, begins with a brief biographical description of each architect before using a light touch to represent the many stages of the building, paying particular emphasis to important architectural advances and characteristic touches. The secrets of modern classic homes, including Frank Lloyd Wright’s Fallingwater (1939) and Le Corbusier’s Villa Savoye (1931), Shigeru Ban’s Cardboard House (1995), and Rem Koolhaas’ Bordeaux House, are revealed via Cornille’s endearing illustrations and understandable language (1998). This vibrant introduction to the most unusual residences in modern architecture will excite readers of all ages.”
