9780061241970: The Sourcebook of Contemporary Architecture

THE SOURCEBOOK OF CONTEMPORARY ARCHITECTURE presents more than 300 noteworthy case studies in its 650 pages, the first large–scale book of its kind to showcase a complete and diverse range of structures worldwide. The case studies incorporate every type of architectural project possible–private, commercial and public–making this lushly illustrated, information–rich book an invaluable resource that architects and architectural students will turn to again and again.

Each case study includes a succinct description of the project at hand, listing its name, client, and location and presenting its unique objectives, challenges, and solutions. Every case study also features numerous full–color photographs and detailed renderings of site and floor plans. Finally, each case study provides a full listing of those involved in the project: the architectural firm and its participating architects; engineers; consultants; and contractors. The book features the work of world–renowned architects such as Gehry Partners, Ateliers Jean Nouvel, Santiago Calatrava, Richard Meier & Partners, Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, Philippe Starck, Tod Williams Billie Tsien & Associates, Daniel Claudio Taddei, Diller Scofidio, and others. Well–known projects include New York's Modern Museum of Art redesign and Time Warner Center, England's Selfridges Birmingham, and the MIT Stata Center in Cambridge, MA.
