More Info
Since the release of the critically acclaimed 10x10 five years ago, the world of architecture has evolved: Advances in technology and research continue to produce increasingly sophisticated forms; advances in communication have resulted in decentralized, multicity architecture offices; and an impressive crop of young architects is emerging from countries with comparatively little previous recognition in the field, such as Slovenia, South Korea, and China. Many of the architects featured in 10x10-- including Asymptote, Shigeru Ban, and MVRDV--have become established fixtures on the international scene, opening the way to a new generation of talent. With the expertise of a highly knowledgeable and high-powered group of curators, 10x10_2 picks up where its predecessor left off. the work of 100 up-and-coming architects in 28 countries, selected by 10 of the world's best-informed architectural critics. Organized in A-Z order, the book introduces each architect or studio on four pages that include photographs, drawings, and accompanying text written by the critics. Although some of the architects are beginning to gain worldwide recognition, others have achieved acclaim in their own countries for their work over the past five years. The selection in this volume features more than 250 buildings and projects, including recently built work as well as those currently under construction and due for completion. The effects of the global economy and political shifts are also evident in the book's selection, which includes several architecture studios in Slovenia, South Korea, and China. Also notable is a widespread move toward multi-location architecture collectives such as Servo, Ocean North, and n-o-m-a-d, which take advantage of a network of contacts in key cities around the world. their views on current architectural issues. In addition, each critic has chosen 10 cultural references--from designed objects to film, theory, and literature--that exemplify the range of influences on today's rapidly changing design environment. The complete list of these references as well as one reading from each critic is reproduced in the book, which concludes with complete biographical information on each critic and architect/firm, as well as an index.

One hundred days have been identified by Getty and National Geographic to represent defining moments of the past 150 years. These moments are crystallised in images that leap from the page revealing joy, anger, despairsand triumph. An insightful text by photography historian Nick Yapp supports these images, which are accompanied by journals, excerpts and 'on-site' notes that offer the backstory of the image and how it was captured.Major events that have shaped our erascaptured in the book include, from the Getty historic archive, the 1848-9 revolution and riots in Europe; President Lincoln's assassination in 1865; the construction of the Eiffel Tower in 1889; the Potemkin Mutiny (1905) that launched the Russians Revolution; the Easter Rising in Dublin in 1916; the Wall Street crash of 1929; Kristallnacht in Germany in 1938; the Bristish leaving India in 1947; through to the dawn of the new millennium in 2000.The National Geographic archives are used to illustratescultural geography, the changes in landscape, contemporary conflicts, Native America, and the civil rights movement among others, including the 1906 San Francisco earthquake, Scott and Amundsen reaching the South Pole in 1911; the Lascaux cave paintings discovered in 1940; the first heart transplant in 1967; the Chernobyl disaster of 1986; the cloning of sheep in 1997; the Twin Towers attack of 2001; and the global warming debate of 2007. The wonder of this book is in illustrating how an entire event or age can be captured in a single image - whether it be of a peasant's tears, two heads of state sharing a secret, or the triumph of an Olympic champion. Politics, war, crime, exploration, fashion and fads all make up these one hundred days: From the California Gold Rush of 1849 to the finished structure of the Three Gorges Dam in 2006.
