10 Homes That Changed America

What is a home? What should a home be? What can a home be?

Throughout history, the concept of "home" has been a fluid idea, explored and redefined by a long line of architectural problem solvers.

A home provides shelter against the elements-and defense from potential enemies. It can express its occupants' values and ambitions, bring people together, and connect them with nature.

The architects and homes featured here can inspire and inform us as we consider our own housing needs and desires-and as we face the housing challenges of the future.

We invite you to explore Ten Homes that Changed America to learn not only how and why they took shape, but also how the ideas they embody have influenced and inspired so many others.
