CAIRO BOOKS's Description
10X10 is a comprehensive view of new architecture today. 10 of the world's
best-informed critics each selected 10 of the world's most exceptional emerging
architects. The diverse and innovative projects of these 100 architects make up
an inspirational and unique collection of recent architecture. The book
features over 250 buildings and projects, including recently built work as well
as projects currently under construction and due for completion. Each critic
also contributes an essay exclusively for this publication and has selected 10
works from varying genres and media to illustrate the context in which
architects operate today. 10X10 is a comprehensive view of new architecture,
presenting the work of 100 exceptional international architects. It provides a
unique opportunity to see a diverse, inspirational collection of recent work,
selected by 10 of the world's best informed architectural critics. The
architects are presented in A-Z order, with four pages allocated to each
practice, including an accompanying text by one of the ten critics. It is
intended to be a truly global selection. Some of the architects have yet to
gain recognition worldwide, but among the names are those who have achieved
international publicity and acclaim for their work during the last ten years.
The work shown here features over 250 buildings and projects, including
recently built work as well as projects currently under construction and due
for completion. 10X10 also features 10 essays written by the critics
exclusively for this publication, which give their view of current
architectural issues. In addition, they have chosen 10 cultural references,
from designed objects to film, theory, and literature, which show the range of
influences in today's rapidly changing design environment. Works reproduced in
this volume include writings by Gabriel Garcia Marquez, David Mamet, and Peter
Weibel, among others.
