For this year's Architects Directory, we've opened up the minds of our 30 chosen studios, giving them a dream brief with just a few qualifications. Divided between town and country, the 30 conceptual structures shown here are intended as architectural provocations, practice statements that embody individual approaches, without ever losing sight of the economic and environmental concerns that have been pushed to the forefront of the agenda as never before. Scattered across a selection of sites from the Ukraine to Argentina, half in cities and half on rural sites, these houses are the fresh visions of emerging architectural talents, each designed to maximise the qualities of its particular site, as well as point to new ways of making a home.
