Architecture at the beginning of the 21st century is changing and evolving at lightning speed.

New technologies and designers are challenging the very foundation of architecture. An art in its own right, architecture is one of the most inventive and rapidly changing form of expression of the 21st Century, This new volume identifies the latest trends from Los Angeles to Tokyo and explains exactly how architecture is finding a new equilibrium, where the old boundaries of space and function no longer exists.

In the third volume of the Architecture Now! series you will find the most recent work of over 60 architects and firms, including familiar names such as Gehry, Meier, Ando, Foster, and Starck, as well as a host of newcomers sure to be the architecture-celebrities of future generations.
