Written by three architectural journalists, this book cuts the world's greatest and most provocative practicing architects down to size, both the old and established and the rising stars. With two fully illustrated pages for each architect, a clear, lively design, and an alphabetical organization, "Architects Today" breaks down the usual arcane architectural categorizations. It offers an insight and introduction to key contemporary architects as well as a snapshot of the varied nature of todays architecture. For each architect, the book gives key biographical information as well as illustrations of their most representative and iconic buildings, and an assessment of their place in the international scene."@en ;
