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 project faces a myriad of convoluted and often contradictory factors: the site, budget, client, construction companies, engineers, rules and regulations.
A successful, completed structure is a masterwork of coordination, communication, imagination, and industry expertise. It requires such nely tuned teamwork that in truth more bad buildings ll our skylines than good ones. This volume brings together the good ones, and celebrates them for all their ambition and their achievement.
