ARCHITECTURE: THE PEOPLE, PLACES, AND IDEAS DRIVING CONTEMPORARY DESIGN
is a publication knit together by more than 100 authors, not just one. Throughout its 450 pages, architecture projects of varying scales and scopes examine the issues encountered by architects today. It broadly surveys a disparate field of concepts that are propelling architecture forward. It measures innovation, and projects solutinos that advance architecture in steps both big and small. It is devoted to inspiring dialogue on design. It is an architecture big book, but it forgoes the all-encompassing “I.” It is meant to spark curiosity and encourage further architectural exploration. After all, architecture is a field with thousands of practitioners. It is filled with conflict, but fueled by genuine discourse. And it moves forward on the ideas of many.
