    Building the future: An indispensable overview of cutting-edge architecture In ideal terms, the architect exists to create what is a functional building and a work of art at the same time. The reality of the matter is of course much more complicated. Each and every building project faces a myriad of convoluted and often contradictory factors: the site, budget, client, construction companies, engineers, rules and regulations.A successful, completed structure is amasterwork of coordination, communication, imagination, and industry expertise. It requires such finely tuned teamwork that in truth more bad buildings fill our skylines than good ones. This volume brings together the good ones, and celebrates them for all their ambition and their achievement.The collection is drawn from TASCHEN s groundbreaking titleBuilding a New Millenniumand from the first four volumes of our renownedArchitecture Now!and in scouting out themost innovative and original structures, features many superstars of tomorrow alongside the field s most respected practitioners, such asSantiago Calatrava, Herzog & de Meuron, Koolhaas/OMA, Daniel Libeskind, Richard Meier, Oscar Niemeyer, andJean Nouvel.
