Since the mid-1990s, architect and educator Spiller (architecture & digital theory, Bartlett Sch., Univ. Coll. London) has been writing about the intersections between architecture and technology; his Visionary Architecture documents the history of technology and architecture in the 20th century, and in Digital Dreams he explored the possibilities of the developing digital world. His latest book illustrates current digital architecture by 40 architects from the United States and Europe. Three or more projects from each architect are accompanied by short descriptions of the designers and their work. Projects range from spectacular built works and exhibition pieces to fantastical unrealized designs. Brief entries in the biographies section in the back of the book provide additional information about the architects, and a glossary helps readers unfamiliar with the terminology. Useful as a snapshot of current work in this field and a road map of influential or emerging architects to watch; recommended for architecture libraries.
