Posted on 25 Jul 2019

Take a look at the stunning homes featured in White Houses, the first book publication devoted to all-white houses, compiled and written by one of the world’s leading authorities on contemporary architecture.

White Houses by Philip Jodidio celebrates modernist idealism and the play of light and shadow, showing how white can act as the perfect backdrop against which to animate our lifestyles.
