Description

The book presents twenty diverse practices from every corner of the country to investigate the kind of originality that is unique to the American culture and climate. Beginning by tracing the most recent developments in American architecture and identifying regional, theoretical or practical strands, the book focuses on each studio in depth, featuring an extensive profile and coverage of projects. The studio profiles are followed by essays that present the work of five of the most recent practices to emerge on the scene with fresh new approaches.

A reference section contains concise biographical and bibliographical information on each architect.
