Over dit kunstboek
The definitive architecture travel guide that lets you visit 1,000 of today's most must-see contemporary buildings – whether at home or on the road
Featuring 1,000 of today's most compelling buildings by the world's finest architects, Destination: Architecture is an unparalleled and comprehensive resource for anyone wanting to get more out of their travels. No journey, from a long weekend to a long-haul trip, would be complete without this expertly curated 'who's who' of the most exciting architecture in the world. Each building is illustrated with a single image and accompanied by a brief description, with addresses, websites, and opening details. It's the best way to find and enjoy contemporary built culture on every continent.
Unlike conventional travel guides to well-known architectural sites - such as the Coliseum or the Great Wall of China - Destination Architecture focuses instead on 1000 very cool and contemporary buildings and structures around the world, from Aarhus to Zurich. Take for example, this elegant tower block in the Boulonge-Billancourt suburb of western Paris (photo), created by the French practice Antonini Darmon in 2016, which marries classical motifs to thoroughly modern sensibilities.
"[I]f your architectural leanings skew more contemporary than classic, take note of Destination Architecture... A compendium of 1,000 of the world's most daringly modern edifices."
The Wall Street Journal
"Architecture buffs will be thrilled to see the most interesting, ground-breaking, and important buildings in the world all together in this comprehensive tome."
"Like all Phaidon photo books, this one is stunning... [It] would make a perfect holiday gift. Even the Grinch would fall in love with contemporary architecture after browsing this collection." Architizer
