Shanghai is Chinas largest city, comparable to New York or Tokyo, and in recent decades it has experienced a building boom on a scale that is simply unprecedented in world history. Shanghai now has more skyscrapers than New York City. Pridmore tells a story that combines art, technology, capitalism, and Communism in vivid prose backed up by extensive reporting and illustrated with superb photographs. After surveying Shanghais traditional Chinese and colonial architecture, Pridmore turns to the amazing city of today. In the last decades of the 20th century, Shanghai was seen as the engine of modernization in China. Leading architects from around the world, including Norman Foster, Paul Andrew, Adrian Smith, Kohn Petersen Fox, John Portman, Chang Yung Ho, Ma Qingyun, and Benjamin Wood were lured into competitions to design vastly ambitious projects, and towering buildings in a riot of different styles sprung up before planners could even map their neighborhoods. Out significant new city of the 21st century.

For the past few years, The Museum of Modern Art has been in the midst of the largest building project in its history. Designed by Yoshio Taniguchi, the new museum will open in midtown Manhattan in November 2004 - 2005 to coincide with MoMA''s 75th anniversary. The 630,000-square-foot complex is nearly twice the size of the former facility, with dramatically expanded and redesigned spaces for exhibitions, public programming, educational outreach, and scholarly research. In his initial proposal, Taniguchi explained that his goal was ''to create an ideal environment for art and people through the imaginative and disciplined use of light, materials, and space.'' His stated vision of ''a museum that preserves and reinforces MoMA''s unique character as the repository of an incomparable collection of modern and contemporary art, as a pioneer of museums of modern art with a unique historical inheritance, and as an urban institution in a midtown Manhattan location'' has been resoundingly implemented.

Japan is one of the few countries in the world today with an ability to foster on a broad scale both a culture of high quality, contemporary architecture and a futuristic urbanism. Notwithstanding recent economic difficulties, diversity and innovation in design continue to shape the built environment with astonishing results. Benefiting from the legacies of both Eastern and Western traditions, the widespread application of the latest technologies, as well as responding boldly and critically to the rapid encroachments of the information age, Japanese architects are shaping the architecture of the future with all its promises, doubts, and contradictions. From the contents: Introduction: Botond Bognar Articles: Kisho Kurokawa, Tadao Ando, Toyo Ito, Masaharu Takasaki Projects: Tadao Ando, Hiroshi Hara, Arata Isozaki, Toyo Ito, Fumihiko Maki, Shin Takamatsu, Masaharu Takasaki, Yoshio Taniguchi, Riken Yamamoto Technology: The Osaka Dome by Nikken Sekkei Urban design: Kisho Schools.

The Herning Museum of Contemporary Art (HEART) in Herning, Denmark, inhabits a new building designed by renowned American architect Steven Holl, who was drawn to the project by the institution''s collection of works by the Italian Conceptual artist Piero Manzoni. In 1960, shirt-factory owner Aage Damgaard invited Manzoni to Herning, and the industrialist''s passion for contemporary art gave rise to a visionary model for cooperation between businesses and artists that ultimately led to the establishment of a new museum. As detailed in this richly illustrated book, Holl''s complex museum is surrounded by a landscape of hills and ponds that meshes with his structures: the single-story building itself, with its natural light and innovative roof construction, refers to the formal vocabulary of the 1960s factory opposite. In reference to its origins, an overhead view of the museum recalls outstretched shirtsleeves while the facade resembles wrinkled fabric.

It may seem early for a round-up of the new century, but contemporary Mexican architects are waiting for no one in their quest to make a mark on the world of design. In fact, this is the second volume of this series from the pre-eminent Mexican architecture and design publisher, Arquine. Although the book covers only two years, it continues to document a particularly creative period in Mexican architecture, including many different styles, and traveling far beyond the horizons of the capital city. This beautiful volume includes photos and schematics of some of the latest work by prominent architects Legorreta + Legoretta, Francisco Serrano (architect of the new Mexico City airport), Harvard professor Mario Schjetnan, Teodoro Gonzalez de Leon, Higuera + Sanchez, Alberto Kalach.
