Given the social, economic, environmental, and even media demands on architecture today, how are architectural ideas sustained beyond conception to become buildings? In a special, tenth anniversary issue, Log 29: In Pursuit of Architecture presents ten outstanding architectural projects from the past decade—some well-known, others completely new—in a full-color portfolio format that illustrates the concepts and processes of each building. Selected from an open call for work built since 2003, these buildings illustrate a range of architectural ideas, and together open a conversation about the production and significance of architecture today. To situate the ten-project portfolio, Log 29 includes essays by four critics who reflect on recent and emerging themes in architecture and directions the discipline may develop.
