Architecture on the move

As economic problems make some shy away from grandiose, long-lasting buildings, a wave of new temporary buildings and architecture is sweeping over the planet. These can have uses from emergency relief to concert or performance venues. Another fascinating area that is covered here is exhibition and fair design, a veritable treasure trove of exciting designs that come and go in the space of a week or less, to showcase fashion, jewelry, or design. Fashion shows or art displays are all part of this dynamic trend that includes some of the great names in contemporary architecture like Zaha Hadid or Rem Koolhaas, but also many architects that you have never heard of until now!
