Overview


Focusing on contemporary architecture, this book gives readers the tools they need to grasp the architectural language and building forms of today's architecture. Part of a new, accessibly written, and generously illustrated series on architecture through the ages, this book features contemporary architecture's most important architects and buildings, interior and exterior photographs, detailed images, drawings and plans. From post- and neo-modernist to deconstructivist and contextualist, contemporary architecture embraces a wide range of approaches. It is unified by its accomplishment of technical challenges, innovative use of resources and space, and insistence on forward-looking design. Some of the most renowned contemporary architects exemplifying these principals are Daniel Libeskind, Zaha Hahid, Rem Koolhaas, Norman Foster, and Frank Gehry.
