Architecture Now #07: Architecture Now! 7 Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

TASCHEN's Architecture Now! 7 features an arching overview of today's architecture, from modern to radically avant-garde. As with previous books in the series, Architecture Now! 7 includes a broad variety of projects from around the world, as well as some works of art that have a direct relation to architecture, from the likes of Giacomo Costa or Shinro Ohtake. It also explores how the recent economic downturn has led to fewer large-scale projects, but has also stimulated creative thinking, as architects find new ways to work imaginatively inside budget constraints. Large-scale works include the futuristic Chinese Central TV Tower in Beijing (OMA) and the Burj Dubai (SOM), the world's tallest tower and centerpiece of the Gulf region's most prestigious urban development to date.

For anyone interested in the zeitgeist and building design in the 21st century, Architecture Now! 7 is an essential work of reference. Easy-to-navigate illustrated A–Z entries include current and recent projects, biographies, contact information, and websites.

Featured architects and practices include:

Alejandro Aravena, Albert France-Lanord, Architektur und Landschaft, Asymptote, Atelier-Den/Inahara Archi-Lab, Barkow Leibinger Architects, Baumschlager Eberle, BIG, Byoung-soo Cho, Cecil Balmond, Charles Barclay, Dominique Perrault, Edouard François, Emiliano López Mónica Rivera, Emilio Ambasz, Eric Owen Moss, Fumihiko Maki, Germán del Sol, Giacomo Costa, Greg Lynn FORM, Gustafson Porter, Herreros Arquitectos, Herzog and de Meuron, HHF, Hiroshi Sambuichi, Hiroshi Sugimoto, Information Based Architecture, International Polar Foundation, IROJE KHM Architects, Isay Weinfeld, James Corner Field Operations / Diller Scofidio + Renfro, architecten de vylder vinck taillieu, Jensen and Skodvin Architects, Junya Ishigami, Kalhöfer-Korschildgen, Kengo Kuma, KHR, LAAC , Made in Sàrl, Masaharu Takasaki, Morphosis, NOX, OMA*AMO/Rem Koolhaas, Paredes Pedrosa Arquitectos, Peter Rich, Plasma Studio, Rand Elliott, Renzo Piano, Rotor, Rudy Ricciotti, SANAA, Santiago Calatrava, Shinro Ohtake, Shuhei Endo, Skidmore, Owings and Merrill, Sou Fujimoto, Splitterwerk, Stefano Boeri, Steven Holl, Supersudaka, Susanne Nobis, Tadashi Kawamata, Terunobu Fujimori, Toyo Ito, Yoshiaki Tokujin, Zaha Hadid
