Item description for Investigate, Ask, Tell, Sense, Build: 3xn Architects by Matteo Cainer...
Investigate, Ask, Tell, Sense, Build profiles one of Europe's most exciting and innovative architecture practices, Denmark's 3XN. Key to their success has been the immense importance they place on investigating and interpreting the historical and cultural context of the site of each new project.
Known for the ambitious aim to make their playful and poetic architecture the heritage of tomorrow, 3XN were recently chosen to design the upcoming Museum of Liverpool, which will be completed at the city's World Heritage Site waterfront by 2008, when Liverpool will be European Cultural Capital.
Established by Kim Herforth Nielsen in 1986, the now 100 strong practice has previously made its mark around Europe with such prominent projects as the Royal Danish Embassy in Berlin, the Architects' Building in Copenhagen, and the Music Building in Amsterdam. More recently, 3XN won the competition to build Salford Arts and Media Centre in Manchester and Stadhuis Nieuwegein in The Netherlands.
Investigate, Ask, Tell, Sense, Build: 3XN Architects explores how a practice working within the Scandinavian tradition of functionality is now one of the leading imaginative forces in European architecture.

Imaginitive and inspirational Mar 30, 2008
As an architecture student about to graduate May of 2008, I find this kind of publication great to see what the rest of the world is doing. i especially enjoy the Danish style of model making. If you are a fan of the guys formerly of PLOT you will like this book. I got to visit the office of Henning/Larsen a few years ago and was impressed by the work they were doing then so seeing the work Larsen is doing now is cool.
