  • Log 29: In Pursuit of Architecture.
    new york NEW YORK

    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.

  • Sylvia LAVIN, Kissing Architecture.
    2011

    Kissing Architecture explores the mutual attraction between architecture and other forms of contemporary art. In this fresh, insightful, and beautifully illustrated book, renowned architectural critic and scholar Sylvia Lavin develops the concept of “kissing” to describe the growing intimacy between architecture and new types of art—particularly multimedia installations that take place in and on the surfaces of buildings—and to capture the sensual charge that is being designed and built into architectural surfaces and interior spaces today.
