This review is from: The Phaidon Atlas of Contemporary World Architecture: Comprehensive Edition (Hardcover)
It is a huge books, in all meanings of the word "huge". Tall, heavy and full of information and photos. As others wrote, it must have been an enormous work to get all this together.
But there are also some negatives: even a book of 8 kilo lacks the space to describe more than 1000 buildings in detail; the fact that it is limited in scope (1998-2003) and outdated by the time you get it; the question "where do I go from here" after seeing all this condensed information together. Maybe it is just too much information.
Still, even with this criticism, it is a book to go through time and time again, and look in awe to all these works.
