Images by Ilka Ruby, Andreas Ruby, Philip Ursprung


Description : This exploration of the use and significance of two-dimensional images in contemporary architecture looks at the works of major designers, including Zaha Hadid, Herzog & de Meuron, Rem Koolhaas, MVRDV, and Sauerbruch & Hutton, among others. It shows how certain architectural principles such as color and ornament--which nearly disappeared in modern twentieth century architecture--are making a strong comeback. Drawing connections to the rise of globalization and current media trends, this examination uses an abundance of thematically arranged photographs to illustrate what is unmistakably a major contemporary development in architecture.
