This paperback edition of Building for Tomorrow includes dramatic recent projects, including The Seed Cathedral in Shanghai, the Riverside Museum in Glasgow, and the Metropol Parasol in Seville. Readers can also explore Richard Rogers's instantly recognizable Lloyds Building, Bart Prince's extraordinary organic wooden houses, Frank Gehry's billowing titanium gallery, and Santiago Calatrava's concrete beetle-like planetarium. Wherever the inspiration has been drawn, be it NASA capsules or nautilus shells, these buildings show that imagination and creativity can work on a variety of scales and budgets, and can collectively set a thought-provoking agenda for an alternative architecture of tomorrow.
