Architecture in Europe has always been characterized by an inimitable variety of style. Also current architecture, from Estonia to Spain, between Norway, Germany and Greece is inspired by the creative interaction of interna - tional design trends with the unparalleled and individual architectural language unique for each country for private homes and office complexes, religious and cultural buildings, or sports facilities and airports. The building technology of today is also marked by an exciting heterogeneity. Innovations like 3D printing are being applied as well as traditional brick construction, translucent high-tech concrete roofs as well as greened façades. The Atlas of European Architecture showcases the exciting esthetical, technical and typological diversity.

Big city life unites the planet. Every habitable continent has metropolitan hot spots that are a hive of activity, a hub of culture - or, to countless millions, the place they call home. Some thrive on a symphony of car horns while for others there''s the rhythmic echo of trains or even ships. The air may hang heavy with spices or fragrant flowers, among buildings that are rarefied or regenerated. There''s no universal formula that makes a city illustrious. But the spectacle of a horizon brimming with prominent buildings great and small evokes an anticipatory thrill about what lies at its core. And a skyline is that city''s iconic signature writ large on a blank canvas, with no two appearing the same. A skyline is a window-shoppers guide to what lays in store. It is a visual code that bridges the language gap and shows you at a glance what has made a city great.

Black + Architecture

Physically, black is defined as an (almost) complete absorption of all frequencies of light; it describes the impression of color when visual stimuli are missing. In many cultural contexts of the past and present, this ''uncolored'' color holds a special place: regardless of context, this special color is always met with great respect. This is also true for the current and intense interaction of architects and designers with the color black. Black buildings seem majestic, filled with a special aura, and dominant, but they can also emphasize their surroundings precisely because of their lack of color. The projects presented in this volume show the great variety of approaches by the contemporary building culture to this fascinating physical and cultural phenomenon.
