Cities don’t have to be faceless lines of gray boxes. Urban Spaces: City Embellishments presents dozens of fresh ideas for bringing big cities back to a human scale—little details like a carved façade, a tiny green space, benches, touches of bold color, a sheltering doorway, planters, and more. Each of these warm, distinctive touches is expertly explained by the best authority available: the designing architects themselves.

Contemporary Architecture brings together buildings blessed with the injection of a fresh dose of creativity. Setting the tone and pace for architects around the world, the designers whose work is shown here are at the peak of their profession, confidently surveying the range of different styles, functions and needs that make each project a unique challenge. Along with the iconic, definitive buildings of the era are lesser-known projects no less creative or surprising. Featuring works by over 30 internationally-known architects incling Zaha Hadid, Renzo Piano, OMA, Alvaro Siza, Tadao Ando, Bernard Tschumi and Frank O. Gehry, Contemporary Architecture is an essential compendium of modern architecture.
