- An unparalleled survey of the most innovative contemporary architects around the world as chosen by 10 prominent members of the international architecture community.
- More than 400 pages of recent architecture projects, presented in colour with a striking page design and accompanied by curators' texts.
- Introduces talented yet little-known architects and firms in Europe, Asia, North America, South America and Australia; even those 'in the know' will not be familiar with all of the studios represented.
- Majority of the projects included are built works, representing a broad range of building types, styles and architectural concerns.
- A timely follow-up to the critically acclaimed 10x10.

Like its successfu1 predecessor 10x10 (2000),10x10_2 is a comprehensive overview of new architecture today. This generously illustrated volume presents 100 of the world's most exceptional emerging architects, selected by 10 internationally prominent critics, architects and curators.

Arranged alphabetically by architect, the book features more than 1,500 illustrations and approximately 250 buildings and projects of the past five years, including work recently constructed as well as competition entries, theoretical projects, and works under construction. The result is an up-to-the-minute collection that represents the best of both global and regional architecture tendencies around the world.

Each critic has contributed an essay written exclusively for this publication; each has, in turn, selected 10 cultural references from varying genres and media to illustrate the context in which architects operate today.

The book includes extensive biographies of the entire spectrum of architects and critics involved.
