Summary

In hardcover format this new, enlarged and updated edition of an earlier issue in the 2G series is an important publishing event to celebrate. Devoted to the French architects Anne Lacaton and Jean Philippe Vassal the book reveals a marked contrast in their work between the latest completed buildings and those discussed in the 2002 edition. Larger projects, more building types are the current focus, but the essential interest, the multiplication space remains foremost.
