Vertigo: The Strange New World of the Contemporary City (Hardback)
Sorry we can't get this title, the button below links through to AbeBooks who may have this title (opens in new window).
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.
