Editor B.J. Archer preserves the creative ideation and evolution of architectural sketches and renderings before the purely conceptual human dwellings are pitted against the reality of execution. Houses for Sale, documents original designs by eight internationally recognized architects "whose clients may be anyone with the inclination and means to build," unaffected by the push and pull of adapting to a commissioned project. This collection of designs acts as a case study for avant garde family dwellings without downplaying the groundbreaking nature of an architect's original vision.
