Item description for Under 40: Contemporary Young Architects by Zone Attive...
Too much modern architecture, while spectacularly designed, bears little or no relation to the community in which it is built. The International Borromini Prize for Architecture honors works by young architects which are both well-designed and carefully fitted to the place and the time in which they were built; works that advance both architecture and community. This volume details the works of the fifty finalists nominated for the 2001 International Borromini Prize for Architecture. The work of these finalists - all architects under forty years of age-represents a wide variety of buildings including exhibition spaces, schools, public spaces, gardens, offices, hospitals and private dwellings from North America, Europe, Asia and the Near East. Each nominee's project is presented with color photos of the site, annotated renderings and critical commentary by the member of the committee of established architects who selected them as a finalist. These 50 young architects are the forerunners of innovative architectural design, clearly representing the necessities and requirements of the future without ignoring the past and the present.
