New online resource for mapping landmark Modern houses

January 21, 2013

Billed as “a unique resource for travelers and lovers of 20th-century houses,” iconichouses.org is a recently launched website that lists a hundred landmark houses from the last century by location, together with background information on their creators and related news stories. In Paris and want to make your way to the nearest Alvar Aalto house? No problem. Maison Louis Carre՛(1959–1963) is not far. You can stop in the medieval village of Montfort l’Amaury for lunch. Apps for your iPhone and iPad are promised.
