Like its successful predecessors 10x10 (published in 2000) and 10x10_2 (published in 2005), 10x10_3 will be a comprehensive overview of contemporary world architecture. Generously illustrated, this volume will present 100 of the world's most exceptional emerging architects, selected by 10 internationally prominent critics, architects, and curators. Arranged alphabetically by architect, the book will feature more than 1,500 illustrations and approximately 250 buildings and projects from the past five years, including recently built work as well as competition entries, theoretical projects, and works under construction. The result will be an up-to-the-minute collection representing the best of both global and regional architecture around the world. Each critic will contribute a short essay written exclusively for this publication on one building or one architect that he or she believes to have made a profound impact on the course of architecture. The book will include biographies of all architects and critics.
This hardcover book measures 11¾ inches x 11¾ inches.
Phaidon’s empire of world-renowned books on food, architecture, fashion, design and travel complement the publisher’s beginnings. Named after Socrates’s pupil Phaedo, who was known for his discourses on immortality, this London-based publishing house got its start in 1923 as a producer of high quality, reasonably priced literature, philosophy, and history books. In 1936 it added art to its repertoire, publishing some of the first monographs of Van Gogh and Botticelli. All volumes pair erudite text with breathtaking photography; a perennial favorite is Phaidon’s stunning, large-scale Atlas of 21st Century World Architecture.
