Who are the world's most exciting up-and-coming architects? 10 x 10_2 has 100 definitive answers, provided by 10 influential curators, educators and architects—including Zaha Hadid, Toshiko Mori, and Kurt Foster. Each featured architect is allotted four generously sized, photo-rich pages, with concise yet informative texts. The projects are distinguished by a rare combination of inventiveness, thoughtful use of materials and sheer beauty. In Zurich, Christian Kerez stacked and cantilevered solid concrete shear walls between large expanses of glass to create a multifamily residence of pristine structural integrity. In Minneapolis, Vincent James Associates Architects endowed a boathouse with the rhythm of repeated trussed beams, inspired by the activity of rowing. SPBR Arquitetos' glass-and-wood dental clinic in S+úo Paulo features a transparent facade, designed to win the trust of neighborhood residents. In Tokyo, Tezuka Architects designed the space-saving Wall-less House, a steel-frame structure supported only by the central utility core and two columns. Among the more futuristicapproaches are ONL's glass-and-metal highway sound barrier housing an industrial building in The Netherlands; New York-based Evan Douglas' fluid architectural elements, created by digital morphing; and Beijing-based Fake Design's dramatically scaled geometric stone formations for a riverside development in China. As a stimulating bonus, each member of the curatorial team offers an annotated list of 10 personal cultural influences, which range from John Berger's classic, Ways of Seeing, to films by Wim Wenders and the architecture-rich city of Chicago. Biographies of the 100 architects are also included. The only drawback of this splendid book, the second in a series, is its eccentric typeface. Stretched across overly long lines of body text and captions, it makes for eye-straining reading. --Cathy CurtisImages from 10 X 10 _ 2

Zaha Hadid is an Iraqi-born, London-based architect who this year was awarded the Pritzker Prize, architecture's highest distinction. Best known for her seminal built works - the Vitra Fire Station, the Bergisel Ski Jump, the Strasbourg Tram Station, and the Rosenthal Center for Contemporary Art - her central concerns involve a simultaneous engagement in practice, teaching and research. Before establishing her own practice, Hadid was a partner of Rem Koolhaas's OMA.

Toshiko Mori is a practising architect and Chair of the Department of Architecture at Harvard University's Graduate School of Design. She has lectured widely throughout North America and has served on numerous international juries. Mori is principal of Toshiko Mori Architects in New York. Deyan Sudjic is an architecture critic based in London. He was the founding Editor of Blueprint magazine and, in 2003, the editor of Domus, the prestigious architectural magazine published in Italy. Sudjic is currently architecture critic for the Observer and has written several books, including John Pawson: Works, published by Phaidon in 2000. Erwin Viray is the Co-editor of the Tokyo-based architectural journal A+U, and a professor in the National University of Singapore's Department of Architecture.

Review:

'Phaidon continue their domination of architectural publishing with another mammoth undertaking ... you can be sure that the names cited here have a bright future ahead of them.' (Wallpaper*) 'No one does the architecture book better than Phaidon.' (Arena) '10x10 offered an opinionated survey of contemporary architecture. Not just an encyclopaedic list of current practice, it made arguments for global architecture: the making of structures out of local materials and knowledge but as part of an international economy and culture. The second edition promises more of the same, with a stronger emphasis on technology and expressive forms. 10x10 gets turbo-boosted.' (Aaron Betsky) 'If you like modern architecture, you are sure to like this weighty tome. I urge you to buy it. ... 10 x 10_2 does exactly what it says on the tin. ... a prodigious book, both in scale and ambition. ... a fantastically [..] inspiring mix. ... a terrifically engaging book with spectacular photographs.' (Matt Gibberd, World of Interiors) 'Sharp and snappy text ... a refreshing mix ... a real feast of images and ideas and a great way to keep abreast of current architectural trends.' (Grand Design) 'If an architecture magazine and an encyclopedia were to have offspring, they beget something like [10 x 10_2]. ... Stunning in breadth but evanescent in mood.' (V&A (Victoria & Albert Museum magazine)) 'What the publishers have [...] demonstrated is that lively and professional presentation of contemporary architecture can be appealing to a broad audience as are other, more easily digested branches of design.' (Architectural Review) 'Fascinating insights into the landscape of contemporary architecture.' (Blueprint) 'Everything in this book is cutting edge, from the imaging and the graphics to the production techniques and the cover design. For all architecture libraries.' (Library Journal) 'A superabundance of high-style design: between the book's sumptuous, tactile covers are approximately 1,500 images of about 250 projects located in 28 countries on 5 continents.' (i-D Magazine)
