Some of the most spectacular architectural designs of the moment have to do with our most basic needs: eating, drinking, and shopping.
Restaurants, bars, and boutiques
are the substance of this new book that puts an emphasis—like all volumes of the Architecture Now!
-series—on the very latest and best creations. This is where you will find the likes of David Chipperfield
and Peter Marino
in the same book, where Jean Nouvel
and BIG star Bjarke Ingels
meet. But it is also the place to discover new talents like the designer of London’s Late Night Chameleon Café, Gary Card
, to see how the director David Lynch
imagined the subterranean Paris nightclub Silencio, or what designer Tom Dixon
conjured up for the Tazmania Ballroom in Hong Kong. Also included is A Cantina, in Galicia, Spain, winner of Best Overall Restaurant at the 2012 Restaurant and Bar Design Awards. From Kobe, Japan to Turku, Finland to São Paulo, Brazil, Eat Shop Drink
rounds up the newest and brightest places to see and be seen.
