白色房子看起來似乎缺少色彩，事實上卻最能純粹反映出光譜中的所有顏色；在建築設計史，白色房子通常體現出明亮、潔淨的特質，這得歸功於20世紀的建築大師們──Le Corbusier, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe 和Richard Meier等人──的貢獻。
Sometimes seen as an absence of colour, white in fact reflects the purity of the entire spectrum. In the history of design, white houses often embody the bright, clean clarity associated with 20th-century giants Le Corbusier, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and Richard Meier.
White Houses presents the most striking, innovative and unusual white houses by contemporary architects, spanning the globe from Asia to the Americas. The featured houses represent every scale and a wide range of locations and terrains, from seaside retreats to space-saving urban homes and grand country residences. From radical new takes on traditional building forms in Latin America to state-of-the-art urban projects in Europe and Japan, each house employs the apparent simplicity of white to reflect light and accent materiality, pressing the frontiers of form to the point of abstraction. No longer an anonymous box, the contemporary white house is the embodiment of the architectural archetype, reinterpreted and refreshed.
