In Public Architecture Now!, Philip Jodidio compiles some of the most compelling and creative public works of recent years. Each responds to the unique questions of function and style that are raised in the erection of concert halls, courthouses, and athletic venues. The selected buildings prove a trend toward aesthetic daring and innovation – the work of Jean Nouvel standing as prime example. At 416 pages, expect the volume to be comprehensive and cover a wealth of new public spaces from across the globe.
