Shamberg House by Richard Meier, in Chappaqua, New York, was built in 1974. It is part of a series of white Corbusier-influenced modernist houses by Meier called the “white villas”. The double-storey concrete and glass villa, located on a hillside, has since been extended and modernised.

Plastic House by Dieter Schmid was designed in 1963. Schmid was fascinated by the opportunities offered by construction with standard components. Plastic House was completely prefabricated and easily transportable. It was the first house of its kind in Europe. Schmid and his family lived in the house, on the outskirts of Biberach, Germany, for 11 years, before it was sold and demolished in 1975.
