Description

The development of the plastic industry has revolutionised virtually all forms of production, with its seemingly endless flexibility, cavalcade of colours and carboniferous cheapness. Here we find 54 examples of construction projects where plastic is a significant feature of design - a vinyl-walled Amsterdam men's club, polycarbonate-panelled houses and saunas, the subtle yet garish embellishments of Canter's Deli in Las Vegas, an underwear shop that is a hymnto white acrylic.

Good photography conveys well the air of amorphous modernity running through the book and the concise explanatory text is in English, German, Spanish, French and Italian. Names whose work is featured include Jordan Mozer & Associates, Hawkins-Brown,Crepain Binst Architecture and Randy Brown Architects. Plastic fantastic.
