About This Item: 
Critic James Wines notes, "The topic of this book, 'un-volumetric architecture' is the search for creative alternatives to the overly volumetric 'shape making' obsessions of international architecture today . . ." Here are over 50 important experimental contemporary designs for public spaces sited throughout the world-earthworks and surface design, canopies and shelters, and other forms of "micro-architecture." As a theory un-volumetric architecture attracted designers including the Acconci studio, Shigeru Ban, Eduard Bru, Manuel de Sola Morales, Isamo Nougichi, Toyo Ito, Wes Jones, Kengo Kuma, Torres, La Pena, Mary Miss, N! Studio, NL architects, Oma, Site, Italo Rota, Sauerbruch, Hutton, and Venturi Scott Brown.
