Created by The Plan, one of Europe's leading architecture magazines (based in Italy), this new series does what most books on cutting-edge architecture do not: it reveals the details of a building's design and construction through highly detailed drawings. Most architects today are savvy about digital renderings and media, but few can present drawings in a manner that can be understood by those working outside the project.

This first volume in the series looks at 20 projects from around the world that use innovative new forms: double-curvature shapes, geometrically demanding structures, etc.
