Whither the contemporary country house? An informed, thorough, readable examination of the circumstances and motivations for new country house building. It will consider whether any contemporary "country houses" are worthy of that appellation, as opposed to being mere houses in the country. It will outline "stylistic" trends, and will suggest how these relate to trends in contemporary architecture in general, investigating whether there is any correlation between motivation, source of wealth and architectural idiom. It will feature 30 examples, representing traditional and contemporary designs, possibly including straight refurbishments and conversions. Projects will be roughly two-thirds from within the UK, and one-third from elsewhere.
