Description:
This work presents a comprehensive survey of international architecture at the end of the century and offers a critical study of the social, cultural and political changes that are shaping the built environment today. Continual advances in science and technology, shifting demographics and greater global communications constantly transform lifestyles and business practices, and prompt a perpetual reinterpretation of architectural ideology and building types. The book is divided into 12 chapters, each organized typologically into building functions - visual arts, performance, religion, consumerism, living, workplace, learning, industry, sport, tourism, transport, civic realm and megastructures. It presents over 300 recent public and private buildings, from housing and work environments to sports and leisure facilities, by many of the world's key protagonists, and examines the evolution of new architectural solutions from the late 60s to the end of the century and beyond. Biographical details of the major architects featured are also included.
