The living encyclopedia of architecture, part 9
The latest buildings around the globe Brazil to Burkina Faso
Architecture Now! 9 includes works in Amsterdam or Inner Mongolia by architects as famous as Zaha Hadid and Jean Nouvel, or as little known to the general public as Carla Juaçaba from Brazil. Small ephemeral buildings like the BMW Guggenheim Lab by Atelier Bow-Wow are included, as well as houses, movie theatres, fashion boutiques, and even an Opera Village in Burkina Faso. Wine and dine with Pritkzer Prize winner Thom Mayne of Morphosis; climb to the top of the Orbit, symbol of the 2012 London Olympics by artist Anish Kapoor and engineer Cecil Balmond; travel Beyond Infinity in a virtual environment created in Shanghai by French designer and artist Serge Salat. This is architecure. Now.
