The Most Beautiful House in the World


The Most Beautiful House in the World

"The Most Beautiful House in the World" is a book published in 1989 by Canadian architect, professor and writer Witold Rybczynski.

Following on the heels of Rybczynski's success with his previous book, "", "The Most Beautiful House the World" recounts his own history of building a house for himself and his wife. As he describes the long process of designing and constructing the house (essentially alone), he meanders through various related topics, eventually coming to the point where he can answer the question hidden in the title of the book: "What is the most beautiful house in the world?"
