contemporary public space - unvolumetric architecture

a synopsis
from Amazon Com

"The latest in public space designs from around the globe by some of the most experimental international designers and architects working today. "The topic of this book, un-volumetric architecture is the search for creative alternatives to the overly volumetric shape making obsessions of international architecture today and a promising goal for the 21st Century." - James Wines This book examines an important selection of the most important and experimental contemporary designs for public spaces throughout the world and offers a critical reflection of the theme of "unvolumetric architecture" proposed by the designers and theoreticians featured in the book. The series of the selected projects moves from earthworks and environmental interventions to surface design, land marks, events, barriers, canopies and shelters, technical equipment, micro-architecture and the most traditional urban design and involves some of the most prominent international designers including Acconci studio, Shigeru Ban, Eduard Bru, Manuel de Sola Morales, Odille Decq, Diler and Scofidio, Noguchi Isamo, Toyo Ito, Wes Jones, Kengo Kuma, Torres& La Pena, Mary Miss, N!Studio, NL architects, Oma, Site, Italo Rota, Sauerbruch & Hutton, Venturi Scott Brown.

The book includes an introductory essay by Denise Scott Brown as well as essays by Wes Jones, Pippo Ciorra, Kengo Kuma, Arie Graafland, Enrico Morteo, James Wines, Bernardo Secchi and Ilhyun Kim."
