Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

For everyone who owns the comprehensive edition of The Phaidon Atlas of Contemporary Architecture, here is its companion to throw in your suitcase or put in your pocket. Contains a condensed version of the information of the comprehensive edition with additional city maps to assist in the identification and location of each building.

Review:

"Architecture buffs no longer have to lug around the 17-pound original edition of the Atlas when they travel; this flex-bound, 41/4 x 61/4 travel edition contains short profiles of the same 1,052 buildings as the original. Every entry (there are about three per page) includes a building photo, a brief description and information on location and about whether the site can be viewed on the interior, exterior or both. The color photographs, if a bit small, are impressive, and the accompanying prose is informative. There's a substantial number of entries on closed, private residences-prepare to peer over the gates if visiting. The majority of the buildings, like the majority of major contemporary architectural projects, are in Europe, but this beautiful guide takes readers from Boston to Botswana-without necessarily having to get on a plane. " Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

A pocket guide to the best of contemporary architecture around the world. Perfect for the holiday or business traveler, the book contains over 1052 color photographs, maps, and addresses to assist in the identification and location of buildings.
