The good life takes the reader on a tour of the houses that the 20th century has bequeathed us, the aim being to free his o r her vision of various preconceptions and prejudices of a professional kind. This is a tour that, reclaiming the century’s radical plurality, undermines the idea of modernity as the triumphant experience of positivism.

The good life is an invitation to travel in the imagination, not only to celebrate the diversity of 20th century houses, but also to simulate the pleasure of thinking, planning and living intensely, to encourage the invention of a house that doesn’t yet exist.
