Like its successful predecessor 10x10 (published by Phaidon in 2000), 10x10_2 is a comprehensive overview of new architecture today. This generously illustrated volume presents 100 of the world's most exceptional emerging architects, selected by 10 internationally prominent critics, architects, and curators. Arranged alphabetically by architect, the book features more than 1,500 illustrations of approximately 250 buildings and projects around the world from the past five years. These projects include recently built work as well as competition entries, theoretical projects, and works under construction. The result is an up-to-the-minute collection representing the best of global architectural tendencies as well as regional trends. Each critic has contributed an essay written exclusively for this publication and has selected 10 cultural references from varying genres and media to illustrate the context in which architects operate today.
