Architects have always dreamed of shaping the future, of building utopian worlds filled with seemingly impossible structures; in recent decades they are closer than ever to this lofty goal. Also the author of Bizarre Buildings, Paul Cattermole brings wit and panache to his writings on architecture, and here he surveys the works of more than 30 leading architects. Along with 245 color photographs, this book includes profiles of Kuala Lumpur's Petronas Towers, Frank Gehry's Guggenheim Bilbao, the billowing Selfridges Building in Birmingham, the bullet-shaped Swiss Re Headquarters, Egypt's puck-like Bibliotheca Alexandrina, London's reviled Millennium Dome, and Melanesia's breathtaking, predominantly wooden Tjibaou Cultural Center.
