Abstract:

Jean Nouvel, Rem Koolhaas, Bjarke Ingels and Norman Foster - all these cutting-edge architects have at some time used comic strips to present their projects or to reflect on the socio-political context that shaped them. There are other architects with a surprising diversity of architecture in the comic strip format to their name. Willem Jan Neutelings and the Californian Wes Jones have even won international competitions with them. This book brings together a wealth of architectural projects that reach out to the world of comics, many published here for the first time. There are also a number of comic-strip creators who have made existing or imaginary buildings a key feature of their work, thereby expressing their perspective on architectural and urban issues.
