Description

This title deals with temporary buildings from pavilions to fair stands, from container-architecture to stage sets, from installations to temporary housing solutions. As economic problems make some shy away from grandiose, long-lasting buildings, a wave of new temporary buildings and architectural is sweeping over the planet. These can have uses from emergency relief to concert or performance venues.

Another fascinating area that is covered here is exhibition and fair design, a veritable treasure trove of exciting designs that come and go in the space of a week or less, to show fashion, jewellery or design.

Fashion shows or art displays are all part of this dynamic trend that includes some of the great names in contemporary architecture like Zaha Hadid or Rem Koolhaas, but also many architects that you have never heard of until now!

It includes: Werner Aisslinger, Jesus Apricio, Atelier Bow Wow, Aybar Mateos, Cecil Balmond, Shigeru Ban, Bernardes Jacobsen, BIG, Alberto Campo Baeza, Caramody Groarke, Casagrande + Hsieh, Santiago Cirugeda, Coop Himmelblau, Diller Scofidio Renfro, Ecosistema Urbano, Olafur Eliasson, Ammar Eloueini, Essentia, Established & Sons, Fantastic Norway, Mark Fisher, Fuksas, Pascal Grasso, Zaha Hadid, Heatherwick, Institute of Comp. Design, Toyo Ito, Adam Kalkin, Koers Mulder, Rem Koolhaas, Adolf Krischanitz, Liu Jiakun, LOT-EK, MAPT, Miralles Tagliabue, MOS, Eric Owen Moss, NASA, Ivan Navarro, Jean Nouvel, OBRA Architects, OMD, John Pawson, Philippe Rahm, Raumlabor, Francesc Rife, Michael Rojkind, Rotor, Tomas Saraceno, SKM, SO-IL, Tamassociati, Javier Terrados Cepeda, UNStudio, Helena Willemeit, and, Tokujin Yoshioka.
