A collection of nine contemporary homes by American architect Celeste Robbins, who imbues her modern designs with warmth and emotion
 
In her first monograph, Chicago-based architect Celeste Robbins proves that contemporary design can be inviting, comfortable, and graciously responsive to how we live. Illustrating Robbins's holistic vision, which integrates architecture, interior design, and landscape, The Meaningful Modern Home features nine significant projects realized in different styles and natural materials. While they are located across the United States, the residences express a modern point of view rooted in a vivid sense of place and vernacular tradition that has universal resonance.
