By the managing editor and the consultant of Architectural Forum, this is a reasonably radical approach to the modern house based on the indisputable contention that the modern house should fit modern needs and make possible more comfortable, more convenient living. Here is the planning of a house in those terms -- of a living room according to the individual requirements of the family which will live in it, of a dining room which can be much more than that, of a work center (kitchen-laundry combined), of a bathroom (in compartments), of rooms to sleep in rather than bedrooms, with of course a consideration of lighting, heating, sound control, windows, etc. The last chapter only deals with projections -- of materials, etc. not yet available. Whether your taste inclines to the modern or not, this book has much valuable advice to offer, some very smart time and space savers.
