Publisher Comments:

Architects at the cutting edge Architecture Now Volume 3 was the winner of the prestigious Saint-Etienne Prize for the Best Architecture and Design Book of 2004. Volume 4 proves that the best keeps getting better, with new names from all over the world and the most exciting and unique buildings and designs. As always, easy-to-navigate illustrated A-Z entries include current and recent projects, biographies, contact information, and website addresses. Here are just a few of the projects that are featured in the new book: ? A shelter for the needy made out of sandbags ? ?Nomadic Museum? made by Shigeru Ban out of shipping containers ? A tree house in Germany ? Extraordinary museums that will never be built in Lausanne and Guadalajara ? New Museums that have been built by Gehry, Mansilla and Tu??n, or Richard Meier ? BMW Central Building in Leipzig by Zaha Hadid ? Allianz Arena by Herzog & de Meuron ? Wedding Chapel in Japan ? Design hotels in Berlin and Sa? Paulo or Cerro Paranal, Chile ? Library in Seattle by Rem Koolhaas/OMA ? Houses in Mexico City, Sa? Paulo, Corsica, Hiroshima, or Great Mackerel Beach, Australia ? Spoon des Neiges by Patrick Jouin ? A tower that will grow like a tree in New York ? With-it architects like David Adjaye, Caramel, Graftlab, Jako ] +MacFarlane, Asymptote or Lewis Tsurumaki Lewis ? Artists who take on architectural space like Frank Stella or Bill Viola, or architects who are interested in art like Peter Eisenman ? The E-House, architecture that is greener than green ? From the Minimal (David Chipperfield and John Pawson) to the decidedly exotic (Longitude 131, Uluru-Kata National Park, Northern Territory, Australia)
