This third edition not only has updates throughout, but also includes two new chapters, on the 'House for Essex', designed and built in 2015 with Living Architecture (a UK not-for-profit holiday rental company founded by philosopher and writer Alain de Botton, which aims to promote, educate and enhance appreciation of modern architecture), and on 'Identity Politics', covering new work made since the previous edition of this book was published in 2013.
