Architecture Now! 9 includes works in Amsterdam and Inner Mongolia by architects as famous as Zaha Hadid and Jean Nouvel, and those as little known to the general public as Carla Juaçaba from Brazil. Small ephemeral buildings like the BMW Guggenheim Lab by Atelier Bow-Wow are included, as well as houses, movie theaters, fashion boutiques, and even an Opera Village in Burkina Faso. Wine and dine with Pritkzer Prize winner Thom Mayne of Morphosis; climb to the top of the Orbit, symbol of the 2012 London Olympics by artist Anish Kapoor and engineer Cecil Balmond; travel “Beyond Infinity” in a virtual environment created in Shanghai by French designer and artist Serge Salat. This is architecure. Now.

About the series: For anyone interested in the zeitgeist and building design in the 21st century, the Architecture Now! series is an essential work of reference. Easy-to-navigate illustrated A–Z entries include current and recent projects, biographies, contact information, and websites.
