View all copies of this ISBN edition:

10 x 10 is a kaleidoscopic view of new architecture in the world today. 100 emerging architects have been selected by 10 leading international architecture curators and critics. Each critic has also selected and listed 10 cultural references - including designed objects, books, films, themes, and movements - to reveal a dynamic range of influences in today's design environment. The book is unique in architectural publishing and provides a truly global view of the most imaginative and important architects not only of today but also of the future. This monumental book is itself architecturally designed, with a plastic lenticular three-dimensional cover and an innovative shifting grid page design, which packs in over 1,500 striking images in 468 pages. The absorbing tome is presented alphabetically by architect in an dynamically direct A-Z format that results in arresting sequences with the turn of each page, making 10 x 10 an invigorating examination of contemporary architecture and culture. The book features over 250 buildings and projects dating from 1990 to the present. These consist of recently-built works, as well as projects currently under construction. 10 x 10 journeys around the globe from multi-million dollar schemes such as the Yokohama International Port Terminal in Japan by Foreign Office Architects; through projects such as the tiny timber summer house in Risor, Norway designed by Carl-Viggo Holmebakk; to the digital world of the Guggenheim Virtual Museum by Asymptote Architecture.From traditional to conceptual, this book mirrors the immensely diverse factors that form and fuel architectural practice and experimentation, to illustrate the most innovative responses to changing technologies and social conditions. Encompassing environmental, industrial, urban, technological, and virtual dimensions, 10 x 10 showcases an abundance of homes, workplaces, religious centres, and places of entertainment. This is a vigorous battlefield of architectural ideas: each critic has been specially commissioned to write an essay supporting their selection of architects, in some cases challenging the selections of other critics, and also giving their own view on contemporary trends in architecture.10 x 10 is not only an essential source book, but the ultimate design object celebrating the architectural future.

From the Publisher:

This is a comprehensive view of contemporary architecture, presenting the work of 100 exceptional international architects. It provides an opportunity to see a diverse, inspirational collection of recent work, selected by 10 of the world's best informed architectural critics. The architects are presented in A-Z order, with four pages allocated to each practice, including an accompanying text by one of the ten critics. It is intended to be a global selection. Some of the architects have yet to gain recognition worldwide, but among the names are those who have achieved international publicity and acclaim for their work during the mid-1990s. The work shown here features over 250 buildings and projects, including recent built work as well as projects currently under construction, due for completion in the 21st century. The work also features 10 essays written by the critics specially for this publication, which give their view of current architectural issues. In addition, they have chosen 10 cultural references, from designed objects to film, theory and literature, which show the range of influences in today's rapidly changing design environment. Works reproduced in this volume include writings by Italo Calvino, David Mamet and Peter Weibel, among others.
