FREE SPIRIT IN ARCHITECTURE. Omnibus Volume
This omnibus volume brings together an international selection of architects who are influencing the development of modern architecture today. They are all theoretically inclined, revolutionary and encourage experimentation and development in architecture, and their buildings offer unfamiliar shapes. But these are not mere dreams of hopes; all these architects are building extensively and influencing a whole generation of students as was made clear at this year's Venice Biennale where the work of the architectural schools reflected their influence. Architects featured include Raimund Abraham, Gunther Domenig, Peter Eisenman, Hiromi Fujii, Frank Gehry, Zaha Hadid, John Hejduk, coop Himmelblau, Itsuko Hasesgawa, Philip Johnson, Daniel Libeskind, Morphosis, Hani Rashid, Bernard Tschumi, Lebbeus Woods and a host of younger architects now beginning to make their mark. The omnibus also includes work by artists such as Dilelr & Scofidio, Kaplan & Kruger and Michael Webb plus theoretical articles by philosophers who have chosen to address art and architectural themes including Jacques Derrida, Paul Virilio, Mark Wigley, Jeff Kipnis, Christopher Norris and other critics. This is the third book in the highly successful "Omnibus Volume" series following the "Deonstruction Omnibus" and the "New Classicism Omnibus".
