Melhuish is an architecture critic and the London correspondent for the French architectural magazine D'Architecture.Review:
"Love or loathe modern architecture, you can't deny this is an impressive book."-Self-Build "Due to the clarity and candour of the author's mind, you might call this volume hunky-dory, with its fine photographs and production values we expect to find from Phaidon... Melhuish's assiduous choice of material and her accompanying comments gave me hope what might happen in the next decade... Were I a young married parent toying with the idea of building a house, or especially an aspiring architecture student, I would hug anyone giving me this book for Christmas. It is so full of ideas about people as they happen to be, which is why I described Melhuish's choice as assiduous."-Architects' Journal "They should give out free spittoons with this book. After a few minutes gawping at the pictures in Modern House 2 you'll find a small pool of drool hanging from your lip. After a few minutes more you will have turned a fetching shade of green. If only we could all live in a modern house... See many definitive houses of the 90s... Feel free to daydream but try not to embarrass yourself."-Guardian "Well-illustrated and intelligently compiled... Modern House 2 is... excellent, both as a source book and as a broad brush survey of current architectural trends."-Royal Institute of British Architects "A highly enlightening book."-Frame, Netherlands
