From Frank O. Gehry's shining Louis Vuitton Foundation in Paris to Zaha Hadid's curving Heydar Aliyev Center in Baku, take a global tour through the architectural practice emerging today, and defining tomorrow. The best-selling series of Architecture Now! celebrates its tenth edition with more than 70 international projects arranged in a neat new format.
With tabbed, thematic sections across Residential, Commercial and Public, Culture and Religion, Education and Research, and Leisure buildings, the selection celebrates contemporary architecture in its innovation, eclecticism, and adaptation to our evolving world. It profiles the work not only of "starchitects" but also of rising talents such as Tatiana Bilbao (Mexico), Sou Fujimoto (Japan), or the young team from Chile, Pezo von Ellrichshausen.
Philip Jodidio studied art history and economics at Harvard, and edited Connaissance des Arts for over 20 years. His TASCHEN books include the Architecture Now! series and monographs on Tadao Ando, Norman Foster, Renzo Piano, Jean Nouvel, Shigeru Ban, Oscar Niemeyer, and Zaha Hadid.
