Architecture in White: Single-Family Houses in Spain and Portugal

Tax included

This first volume of "Arquitectura en Blanco" showcases 14 single-family houses located in Spain and Portugal across 248 pages. These houses stand out for their predominant use of the color white, an essential chromatic element deeply rooted in contemporary architecture in Southern Europe.

The book provides a detailed analysis of each house through an extensive selection of photographs, plans, and construction details. This meticulous approach allows readers to gain a comprehensive understanding of each project, revealing not only the elegance of the design but also the technical challenges and solutions involved in implementing white in architecture.

The selection of houses in this volume aims for balance, both in terms of geographical representation and the inclusion of renowned architects. The book reflects the diversity between Spain and Portugal, featuring a mix of emerging architects and well-established figures such as Alberto Campo Baeza, Aires Mateus, Eduardo Souto de Moura, and Carlos Ferrater, offering a range of unique voices and perspectives on white architecture.

In addition, the book is enriched with texts by César Jiménez, a specialized communicator in this field, and Paolo De Marco, who provides a study on the use of white in contemporary architecture, detailing a variety of materials and techniques employed to achieve white effects and highlighting their sustainability advantages.

Beyond being a visual publication of single-family houses, this book serves as an essential resource for architecture professionals and students. Through a careful combination of high-quality images, constructive analysis, and theoretical contributions, it offers a valuable and comprehensive insight into the specific realm of white architecture as well as the broader field of single-family housing.
