10X10_3 free pdf You'll be amazed by what's happened since "10x10_2". Green architecture has gone from novelty to necessity, walls have gone from necessary to optional, hula hoops have become a building material. Local is the new international. Architecture is the new art. The 100 architects featured in this volume, the latest in our successful "10x10" series, are pushing the boundaries of design and redefining the very meaning of architecture: a building sliced in half in order to design the space in between- a one-ton floating object of seeming weightlessness- a high-end shop in downtown Seoul covered entirely in vegetation- and, a skyscraper that seems to disappear on sunny days. This is architecture as you've never seen it before. "10x10_3" is a comprehensive and global view of new architecture, presenting the work of 100 up-and-coming architects from around the world, selected by 10 of the best-informed critics, curators, and architects. They include Joseph Grima (USA)- Kengo Kuma (Japan)- Peter Schmal (Germany)- and Ai Weiwei (China). Arranged alphabetically by architect, the book features more than 1,500 illustrations of approximately 350 buildings and projects from the past five years, including recently built work as well as competition entries, theoretical projects, and works under construction. Each curator has contributed a short essay written exclusively for this publication on one building or one architect that he or she believes to have had a profound impact on the course of architecture, plus ten brief essays on his/her nominated architects. The book includes biographies of all the architects and curators. Slovenia. Portugal. Chile. China. India. Brazil. Canada. Mexico. Hungary. Japan. Korea. Taiwan. Russia. These are just some of the countries where these young firms practice. "10x10_3" will introduce you to the architects redefining what it means to design today, and the architecture that will forever change the way you think about what's possible. This is cutting edge. This is now. This is "10x10_3".
