Description

This book presents detailed case studies of 26 high density developments from varied and sometimes unexpected locations. Big names such as Foster & Partners and MVRDV (represented here by Gemini - converted seaside silos in Copenhagen - as well as the instantly recognisable Mirador development in Madrid) are accompanied by intriguing projects such as Gokay Deveci's 7-storey hilltop tower A'Chrannag on the Isle of Bute, Rene van Zuuk's bulbous wave Block 16 in Almere (Netherlands) and colourful modern housing in Slovenia. All buildings are illustrated with clear plans, plentiful photographs and explanatory text.
