Item description for News ¿ Recent Architecture by Périphériques by IN-EX projects IN-EX projects...
Priphriques' frequent participation in the international ArchiLab exhibition in Orlans and their contribution to the Architecture Biennale 2002 in Venice are sure signs of the national and international recognition which they are receiving. In 2000, Birkhuser first published an overview of their architectural work entitled M.I.N.N.E.S.O.T.A. now out of print, and the time has come to document their latest works. This new volume describes Priphriques most recent buildings and projects. Amongst the realised buildings are the Maisons Icone and MR, the transformation of the Place Furstenberg in Paris, the Caf Charbon in Paris, and no doubt the high point is the Cabinet d'art graphique at the Centre Georges Pompidou. Also included are a number of fascinating new projects such as the Small Towers in Tsumari, Japan, the concept for the Habitat shops in Paris and the urban plans for the new Parisian Cit Universitaire.

Cheap Sep 3, 2007
This is very economically produced book. Don't buy it if you are interested because you like Peripheriques' projects on their website or 'In/Ex Customize' book. It does provide plans and other drawings which do not appear on their website, so if you want these informations, go for it. But picture qualities are horrible, like those printed on newspaper. The concepts and their approaches are narrated like you see on comic books, and it is read much like them as well. But if you expected thought provoking discussions and pictures you saw on their previous book 'In/Ex Customize' from this monograph, you will be disappointed. I just don't get it why they produced the book this way. Their projects are so interesting, and they could have produced amazing monograph packed with high quality photos and other architecturally interesting informations. Maybe they want to aim for young and free casual readers, but then the book should be cheaper like a copy of magazine. Maybe they are being political, but this cannot be a proper documentation of their works in book format.
