In many countries, modern houses have evolved from European-influenced International Style modernism to "regional modernist" variations on local materials and building techniques. This is a survey of new tropical houses that embrace open floor plans, exterior courtyards, sunny patios and cool stucco surfaces - all within a regionally inflected modern architectural vocabulary.
