How and where is architecture created today? Where do architects find their inspiration? What design tools do they use? This book offers a behind-the-scenes look at twenty high-profile international architecture firms and provides authentic glimpses of the architects’ individual creative worlds. Rather than a collection of glossy portraits, the volume offers a step-by-step account of the design process, made vivid and three-dimensional by “snapshots” of the studios and texts with quotations from conversations with the architects.
