The Phaidon Atlas of Contemporary World Architecture: Comprehensive Edition

Book Review
The Phaidon Atlas of Contemporary World Architecture--so massive that it comes in its own plastic carrying case--is one of the rare publishing events that lives up to its hype. The book showcases 1,052 buildings completed since January 1998 with thousands of well-chosen color photographs plans, elevations, and cross-sections. Major elements of each project are described in elegantly succinct texts. Rather than simply pay lip service to the concept of "world" architecture, this book ranges throughout 75 countries on six continents. And although the big names in the field are here--Rafael Moneo and Herzog & De Meuron are each represented by nine projects; Tadeo Ando with eight, Frank Gehry with six--the focus is on the ingenuity and diversity of contemporary architecture, regardless of the fame of its creator. The book's...

From Publishers Weekly
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...

March 2003
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
A practical, illustrated guide to the new International Building Code
With the publication of the International Building Code, the building industry is moving toward a single universal set of construction codes, rather than the three regional codes previously in use. Now more than ever, architects need an interpretive guide to understand how the building code affects the early design of specific projects. This unique reference blends the graphic skills of bestselling author Francis Ching with the code expertise of Steven Winkel. It closely examines the portions of the building code that are most relevant for the architect and provides a simple and practical interpretation through words and illustrations. All the changes in the new code are explained in simple, user-friendly language that allows architects to get...

Paperback

Book Description
The architects Francisco and Manuel Aires Mateus occupy an important and well-deserved place on the current Portuguese architecture scene. The sheer quantity of their public and private commissions, the competitions won over the last few years, the countless prizes received and the publicizing of their buildings at the international level are all signs of the recognition of their work. This issue of 2G is the first monograph on the work of these Lisbon brothers and opens with a text by the critic João Belo Rodeia, a commentary by Alberto Campo Baeza on the house in Alenquer and an "informal conversation" with their teacher Gonçalo Byrne and Valentino Capelo de Sousa. Among the buildings presented one might single out the magnificent students' residence on the Coimbra University campus, the Universidade Nova...

Book Review
Who are the world's most exciting up-and-coming architects? 10 x 10_2 has 100 definitive answers, provided by 10 influential curators, educators and architects—including Zaha Hadid, Toshiko Mori, and Kurt Foster. Each featured architect is allotted four generously sized, photo-rich pages, with concise yet informative texts. The projects are distinguished by a rare combination of inventiveness, thoughtful use of materials and sheer beauty. In Zurich, Christian Kerez stacked and cantilevered solid concrete shear walls between large expanses of glass to create a multifamily residence of pristine structural integrity. In Minneapolis, Vincent James Associates Architects endowed a boathouse with the rhythm of repeated trussed beams, inspired by the activity of rowing. SPBR Arquitetos' glass-and-wood dental clinic in São...

Icons of Architecture: The 20th Century

From Library Journal
This international survey of key architectural monuments brings together 37 contributors' brief essays on more than 70 houses, apartment buildings, office buildings, clubs, factories, museums, concert halls, and other building types. In strict chronological order, there are from five to 14 entries per decade, each allotted one two-page spread that consists of usually high-quality photographs of the building; often a plan, section, or preliminary sketch; and a portrait of the architect beside a concise professional biography. The essays vary from anecdotal to descriptive. This volume updates and even improves on Lucy Peel and others' An Introduction to 20th Century Architecture (Chartwell, 1989) and neatly complements At the End of the Century (LJ 11/1/98), a considerably more theoretical and scholarly exhibition...


The Very Small Home: Japanese Ideas for Living Well in Limited Space

From Publishers Weekly
"The small abode has become all the rage in Japan," architect Kengo Kuma declares in the foreword to this inspiring book, which should appeal to fans of the small home movement in the U.S. as well. Brown (Small Spaces; The Japanese Dream House) presents 18 residential buildings in his photo-packed volume, all of them built within the past five years. Many of them were designed by leading Japanese architects, such as Tadao Ando and Shigeru Ban. And although their actual floor spaces may be too small for most American readers-they range from 540 sq. ft. to 1,730 sq. ft.-the volume is so full of ingenious ideas that it's a good bet for anyone trying to maximize the space and light of a small residence. Architect Hoichiro Itai's house, for example, manages to squeeze a garden deck, a study, three bedrooms and a sunny...

2G 14 Building in the Mountains. Rústica 30 x 23 cm 144 pp pages illustrated in colour text: english/español Quarterly ISSN: 1136·9647 The attention Swiss architecture has received in recent years has mainly focused on a small number of architects whose work has appeared on the covers of the specialized press. Extending throughout the Modern Movement, this is an architecture with its roots in a rich building tradition. In Graubünden, under the attentive gaze of maestro Peter Zumthor, a group of young architects educated at the ETH in Zurich, many of whom are former assistants in Zumthor's studio, demonstrate the extraordinary quality of the architectonic production of this small German-speaking region of Switzerland. These increasingly well-known names present a wide range of projects ranging...
