    DescriptionDissecting the new architectural landscape of the industrialized world, this collection of essays explores 10 recently completed projects which exemplify the forces that are shaping contemporary cities. It responds to a particular moment when architects are being compelled to answer the challenges of new media, globalization, post-industrial culture and the unprecedented scale and speed of modern development. These challenges have made the great concerns of the 20th-century architecture - the Modern Movement, Postmodernism and High-Tech - seem irrelevant. In contrast to the bland future-gazing that the eve of the new millennium has tended to inspire, this book sets out to evoke tangible urban experiences.
