Item description for Exploring Europe: Architecture in the 21st Century by Hans Ibelings...
The end of the Cold War, the lifting of the Iron Curtain and the expansion of the European Union have resulted in a new political, economic and cultural reality. European architecture is experiencing a swift, far-reaching wave of internationalization, and thus becoming more European--more pan-European--than ever before. Architecture critic Hans Ibelings, the author of Supermodernism and the founding publisher of A10 magazine, charts the architecture of the New Europe from the Azores to the Ukraine, and from the Arctic Circle to Cyprus, by project, by movement, by artist. He calculates its significance based on a series of developments: from the introduction of the Euro to the political upheavals in Central and Eastern Europe, from the economic boom in Ireland to the Erasmus university exchange program, from a new cultural self-awareness in countries such as Portugal and Slovenia to the rise of budget airlines. And, crucially, he looks ahead to what's next.
