The abriged paperback edition of The Sourcebook of Contemporary Architecture presents sixty noteworthy case studies that showcase a complete and diverse range of structures worldwide--now in a more portable format. The case studies incorporate every type of architectural project possible-private, commercial and public-making this lushly illustrated, information-rich book a more widely accessible resource that architects and architectural students will turn to again and again.

Each case study includes a succinct description of the project at hand, listing its name, client, and location and presenting its unique objectives, challenges, and solutions. Every case study also features numerous full-color photographs and detailed renderings of site and floor plans. Finally, each case study provides a full listing of those involved in the project: the architectural firm and its participating architects; engineers; consultants; and contractors. The book features the work of world-renowned architects such as Gehry Partners, Ateliers Jean Nouvel, Santiago Calatrava, Daniele Claudio Taddei, Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, Philippe Starck, Tod Williams Billie Tsien & Associates, Daniel Claudio Taddei, Diller Scofidio, and others. Well-known projects include New York’s Modern Museum of Art redesign and Time Warner Center, England’s Selfridges Birmingham, and the MIT Stata Center in Cambridge, MA.

Paradoxically, it is also an architecture that reveals itself and its own...
