This sixth installment of Architecture Now!, featuring buildings ranging in size from Terunobu Fujimori s tiny (6.07 square meters) Teahouse Tetsu to Norman Foster s gigantic Crystal Island project in Moscow (1.1 million square meters), provides an overview of what is happening right now in architecture, be it of traditional inspiration, or at the very edge of current thinking. What is the spirit of this moment, and how does architecture reflect the creativity as the first decade of the 21st century draws to a close? Architecture Now! 6 is THE reference for what is happening and what is to come. Easy-to-navigate illustrated A Z entries include current and recent projects, biographies, contact information, and web sites.
