Taschen's wonderful annual review of the most noteworthy contemporary architecture is now in its fifth year. It covers new work by the usual jet-set starchitects (Gehry, Rogers, Calatrava etc,) but the majority of the buildings covered are by somewhat less well known practices, and generally more interesting for it. Something for everyone. A great inspiration and wonderful escapism. Elegantly produced, lovely photos, nicely laid out, and much cheaper than a subscription to Blueprint.

Format: Paperback
A nicely presented and slick little book with very good and sensibly chosen photos. However the graphic content is the only reason you should consider buying this book. I personally find the text misleading and very vague which is to be expected considering it is a Taschen publication. That said it is a useful resource for looking for precedence, just don't take what is written too seriously.

This is a book for people that are interested in architecture, not necessary architects. It covers most of the important architects of our time ( Santiago Calatrava, Frank Gehry and about 100 others.) We can see every architact's most important and recent project with many photos, plans and descriptions. It is a MUST! Now I have to go and continue my journey through modern architecture...

I loved the book, very useful, i find it great it;s in 3 languages, it's very big though, not really comfortable for reading, because it's too big, but that's understandable since it has nice images in appropriate scale100 Contemporary Architects (Taschen 25th Anniversary)

Architecture Porn plain and simple. It gives you a snippet of information to allow you to look them up properly. They are basically like visual index's
