Item description for Architecture Now! Vol 2 by Philip Jodidio...

The fine line between art and architecture is rapidly becoming harder to perceive. With the aid of sophisticated computer programs, today's most innovative architects are working on designs so conceptual they could not be realized in the physical world. Nevertheless, these sorts of forward-thinking projects are an important influence on the architectural climate. At the dawn of the 21st century, architecture is entering a paradigm shift; no longer can it be completely distinguished from art. Be they built from bytes or bricks, the projects in this book represent the imagination of the planet's most talented and creative architects. For all the latest and most important architectural projects and trends, look no further than this volume, the follow-up to our popular and groundbreaking book Architecture Now!

Promise Angels is dedicated to bringing you great books at great prices. Whether you read for entertainment, to learn, or for literacy - you will find what you want at!

Reviews - What do customers think about Architecture Now! Vol 2?

exceptionally poor service  Jun 4, 2008
this site claimed they were sending a new book but it arrived with a peeled spine. They claimed that it would be replaced but nothing arrived. This
is the first time I have experienced poor service and not from a vendor,
but rather, this site itself!
Art, architecture, and more.  Aug 29, 2007
This is a nice little coffee table styled book on architecture and artwork, showcasing about 92 architects and a few of their works. Its small size makes it easy to take along with you wherever you go.

Each architect gets two pages devoted to them, comprising a brief biography highlighting some of their notable works, as well as photos and/or sketches showcasing one or two of their works.

Some of the architects and works featured include Alberto Campo Baeza (Center for innovative technologies in Majorca), Will Bruder (Byrne residence in Arizona), Frank Gehry (Experience Music Project in Seattle), Arata Isokazi (Shizuoka convention and arts center in Shizuoka), Polshek Partnership (the very space age Rose center for earth & science in New York), and Richard Rogers (Law courts in Bordeaux, and Millennium Dome in London).

A good book.
Paysoff the price  Jun 7, 2007
Valuable book according to price. However there is a small binding problem in my copy...
Architectural Review  Jan 18, 2007
The author of this book has done a fine job of showcasing recent modern architectural projects of interest to the general population, as well as to architects and structural engineers working in the profession. I am a structural engineer, and I purchased the book because two of my friends, and one of their projects, are featured in the book. I also happened to work on that paticular project, and was interested in having a published record of the project along with my own project files. The book is well written, has wonderful photographs, and is a fine addition to the genre of "coffee table architecture books". Mr. Jodidio is to be commended for writing this book.
ARCH 4  Nov 3, 2006
Despite of being on of the most interesting book which gather many architects and many styles, this fourth version is not as good as the other 3, although it reflect the kind of architecture being used at this moment all over the world.
