            Building the future: An indispensable overview of cutting-edge architecture In ideal terms, the architect exists to create what is a functional building and a work of art at the same time. The reality of the matter is of course much more complicated. Each and every building proje...ct faces a myriad of convoluted and often contradictory factors: the site, budget, client, construction companies, engineers, rules and regulations.A successful, completed structure is amasterwork of coordination, communication, imagination, and industry expertise. It requires such finely tuned teamwork that in truth more bad buildings fill our skylines than good ones. This volume brings together the good ones, and celebrates them for all their ambition and their achievement.The collection is drawn from TASCHEN s groundbreaking titleBuilding a New Millenniumand from the first four volumes of our renownedArchitecture Now!and in scouting out themost innovative and original structures, features many superstars of tomorrow alongside the field s most respected practitioners, such asSantiago Calatrava, Herzog & de Meuron, Koolhaas/OMA, Daniel Libeskind, Richard Meier, Oscar Niemeyer, andJean Nouvel.

            The Longing for Less: Living with Minimalism

            One of our keenest social observers examines the deep historical roots--and untapped possibilities--of our newfound, all-consuming drive to reduce. Everywhere we hear the mantra: Less is more. Marie Kondo and other decluttering gurus promise that shedding our stuff will solve our... problems, while tech-industry lifehackers preach a ruthless time-management gospel. We commit to cleanse diets and strive for inbox zero. Amid the frantic pace and distraction of everyday life, we covet silence--and airy, Instagrammable spaces in which to enjoy it. All the while, the enduring values of minimalism become harder to discern through its branding as yet another luxury commodity. After years covering these trends for leading publications, cultural critic Kyle Chayka delves beneath the minimalist lifestyle's glossy surface, seeking ways to better claim the time and space we crave, on our own terms. He finds that the origins of our current love affair with austerity go back further than we realize, as his search leads him to the stories of the singular innovators whose creativity laid the foundation for minimalism as we know it today: artists such as Donald Judd and Agnes Martin; composers such as John Cage and Julius Eastman; architects and ascetics; philosophers and poets. As Chayka looks anew at their extraordinary lives and explores the places where they worked, he gleans fresh insights into our longing for less. And finally, tracing the footsteps of two Japanese literary masters, he arrives at an elegant new synthesis of our minimalist desires and our profound emotional needs.
