CAIRO BOOKS's Description
Following on from the comprehensive book, the "Phaidon Atlas of 21st Century
Architecture", "Greatest Buildings of the 21st Century" looks at the most
remarkable projects built internationally since the turn of the millennium. The
book includes a wide range of project types such as stadia, theatres, bridges
and government buildings. Each project has been chosen based on factors such as
its innovative use of materials, its scale or construction techniques. This
book offers an accessible overview of the most extraordinary buildings from
around the world, built by both established architects and new, emerging
talents. Designed for a general readership, each project is given two double
page spreads with a comprehensive selection of images of the exterior and
interior, and an informative text about the building and its context.Buildings
featured will include such notable projects as the National Stadium in Beijing,
China by Herzog & de Meuron, the Casa da Musica in Porto, Portugal by Rem
Koolhaas/OMA, the Millau Viaduct in Millau, France by Foster + Partners, and
