    For more than twenty years, David Piscuskas and Juergen Riehm, principals of 1100 Architect, have honed a distinctive architecture informed by proportion, materiality, light, and detail. The firm's designs do not adhere to any specific stylistic codes but do share an understated architectural signature: an elegance of proportion, an innovative yet direct use of materials, a meticulous execution.A sequel to the best-selling 1100 Architect (1997), this new monograph includes twenty recent buildings and projects, notably Little Red School House and Elisabeth Irwin High School and the Irish Hunger Memorial, both in New York City, and the Naha City Gallery and Apartment House, in Japan. The firm's work encompasses cultural, institutional, residential, and commercial work. In addition to a perceptive essay by a long-time observer of the firm's work, the partners discuss five design elements essential to their practice: detail, materiality, effortlessness, permeability, and recognition.

    The first monograph bringing together all the projects of this now leading architectural firm. 5+1 Architetti Associati was founded in Genoa in 1995. Having gradually built up an interdisciplinary team around the central importance of the project, this architecture practice faces the challenges of the city—its obsolescence and renewed vitality—by tackling the transformation of the real. This involves pursuing unusual actions such as dialoguing with the banal and the ugly or exploring the aesthetics of poverty and the ethics of perception.Their focus on the public and the social, its contemporary languages and related crossovers, creates horizons in which architecture is often expressed as a bringing together of actions and responses, all aimed at experimenting with the real. Special attention is paid to the subtle boundaries separating public and private, open space and enclosure, regional area becoming city and city lost in outskirts.

    Paradise for the man in the street: A compact overview of one of the world’s greatest architectsFinnish architect Alvar Aalto (1898–1976) was strongly influenced by both the landscape of his native country, as well as the political struggle over Finland’s place within European culture. After early neoclassical buildings, Aalto turned to ideas based on Functionalism, subsequently moving toward more organic structures, with brick and wood replacing plaster and steel.In addition to designing buildings, furniture, lamps, and glass objects with his wife Aino, he painted and was an avid traveler. A firm believer that buildings have a crucial role in shaping society, Aalto once said, “The duty of the architect is to give life a more sensitive structure.”
