"Well, perhaps it's time to get really envious, because 100 Contemporary Houses captures the most eye-catching avant-garde abodes across the world. Which poses the question: Can one inhabit a work of art? From an adult tree house to a beach-side labyrinth, the homes are definitely going to take up some space on your Pinterest boards. This book contains 100 houses made in the past decade that prove home is where the art is. This TASCHEN gem features homes designed by all kinds of starchitects, including John Pawson, Richard Meier, Shigeru Ban, Tadao Ando, Zaha Hadid, Herzog and de Meuron, Daniel Libeskind, Alvaro Siza, UNStudio, and Peter Zumthor."— Huffingtonpost.com, London, United Kingdom
"What’s that? You were excited that your house had a walk-in closet? Well, perhaps it’s time to get really envious, because 100 Contemporary Houses captures the most eye-catching avant-garde abodes across the world. Which poses the question: can one exist in a work of art?"— Ramkshrestha blog, Nepal
"Notre coup de cœur. Une fois de plus, c’est l’éditeur TASCHEN qui reçoit nos suffrages pour ce coffret rassemblant, en 2 volumes et près de 700 pages les 100 maisons les plus innovantes des dix dernières années. De la tour de verre (Ring House) de l’agence TNA à Nagano (Japon) à l’église relookée (Stairway to Heaven) de Zecc à Utrecht (Pays-Bas), en passant par le pavillon de béton (House) de Herzog et de Meuron à Leymen (France), c’est donc le «must» de l’architecture contemporaine qui s’expose ici. Certes, la plupart de ces maisons ont déjà été publiées dans des ouvrages spécialisées, mais on apprécie de les voir ainsi réunies et accessibles au plus grand nombre. Bref, prêtes à passer à la postérité."— Maison Magazine, Paris, France
"Las casas del siglo 21. Reúnen dos volúmenes 100 residencias contemporáneas que son referentes en diferentes partes del mundo. El autor hace en su obra una introducción que pone de manifiesto la fuerza que adquirió en el siglo 20 la construcción de casas singulares cuya innovación ofreció argumentos sólidos a la ciencia arquitectónica, su entorno, y el paso del diseño de muebles a la decoración y la creación de complementos de todo tipo."— Entremuros, El Reforma, Mexico
"Today the ever-stylish blog Co.Design pulls 10 slides from the TASCHEN's newly released 100 Contemporary Houses, a two-book volume that features the "most interesting and pioneering homes" of the past decade. Head over for showstopping works such as an origami-like private Connecticut residence that was designed by Daniel Libeskind."— Curbed.com, New York, United States
"TASCHEN, tireless peddler of architecture porn, is up with a tantalizing new coffee-table book, this one a survey of contemporary homes around the world, from a grown-up treehouse in São Paulo to a glassy beachfront cottage in Sydney. The two-volume, 688-page doorstopper assembles the past decade’s 100 'most interesting and pioneering homes' from the likes of Richard Meier, Shigeru Ban, Tadao Ando, Zaha Hadid, Herzog and de Meuron, Daniel Libeskind, UNStudio, and Peter Zumthor. There’s no big theme here beyond the fact that the buildings are gorgeous and no doubt cost bucket-loads of money. And, oh yes, they were clearly designed to make people like us feel bad about our tiny, hideous apartment-dwelling existences - Thanks, TASCHEN!"— Fastcodesign.com, New York, United States

"Did you ever dream of living in a tree house? Well, sit back and enjoy an armchair architectural tour of the most extravagant, creative, and quirky homes built during the first ten years of the 21st Century. Taschen's recent two volume tome 100 Contemporary Houses features the designs of established "starchitects" such as Richard Meier, John Pawson, Daniel Libeskind, and Zaha Hadid as well as a host of up-and-comers."— Yahoo.com
"It would make a fantastic present for anyone even mildly house-obsessed."— Your Home is Lovely Blog, London, United Kingdom
