About this title

Synopsis:

At once intentionally didactic yet reflexive, the book challenges the restrained tradition of the typical architectural publication. A diverse range of projects spanning fifteen years of practice are grouped together in chapters according to an original taxonomy in order to reveal working methods and underlying strategies relating to some of the more complex roles that 21st century architecture must play - a taxonomy that might help shift architectural thinking in developing countries from normative to more conceptual territory. Proving it can be done, Don Albert & Partners advocate a position of "Not Knowing" that embraces research and enables a fresh start with each new project.

Finally, as a collection of acclaimed buildings and theoretical projects, Sound, Space, Design also operates as a resource through the careful selection of drawings, renderings and photographs that illustrate the firm's most beautiful and inspiring work to date
