The history of living is a history of life plans. Numerous architectural masterpieces of the 20th century testify to the struggle for housing for a new lifestyle and the struggle for more open living and spatial organisations. The book brings together the newly drawn and furnished plans of 40 exemplary houses and apartments on a uniform scale. Living spaces by Gonçalo Byrne, Theo van Doesburg, Lux Guyer, Max Ernst Haefeli, Fritz Haller, Le Corbusier, Erich Mendelsohn, Otto Pfeifer, O. R. Salvisberg, Alvaro Siza, Hans Scharoun, Bruno Taut and others will be presented.
