Arranged alphabetically by firm name, the work of each of these one hundred studios is presented here on four pages and is accompanied by an insightful text by the selecting contributor. A range of aesthetics gets ample play across the four hundred pages, which comprise some 1,500 images, 250 buildings & projects, and twenty-eight countries. 10 essays; 100 references; 10 excerpts; Architects' biographies; Index; Photographic Credits. Color photographs, illustrations, b&w plans. 464p.
Originally published five years ago, this enormous book, measuring one square foot and weighing ten pounds, introduces 100 of the most promising architects and architectural firms from 28 countries, including Slovenia, South Korea, Brazil, and China. These talented individuals are presented in the form of alphabetical four-page pictorial spreads, featuring their most intriguing designs and abbreviated biographies. Some of the world's best-known architecture critics, writers, educators, and designers are responsible for the selections, including architect Zaha Hadid (London), historian Kurt Forster (Germany), and architectural educator Toshiko Mori (Harvard Univ. Graduate Sch. of Design). Everything in this book is cutting edge, from the imaging and the graphics to the production techniques and the cover design. For all architecture libraries.-Peter Kaufman, Boston Architectural Ctr. Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
