As respected architecture writer Mr Philip Jodidio points out in the introduction to this book, smaller architectural designs are often the most creative. Freed from the bureaucracy of large projects and requiring the most careful consideration of space, they demonstrate unique skill and innovative thinking. Profiling over 50 firms and showing selected projects, including detailed images and text in English, French and German, this hardcover provides a fascinating and global insight into the medium. link
