Young Architects: Second Nature

Front Cover
Princeton Architectural Press, 2001 - Architecture - 161 pages
Today, so much of our environment consists of nature in an altered state, from cultivated landscapes, and processed and prefabricated materials, to simulated and artificial environments. With this in mind, the Architectural League posed the question: can architects achieve design excellence without addressing nature? The choices and ramifications of designing in the new millenium are the basis of the projects envisioned by six of America's most exciting new architecture talents, and presented in "Second Nature." Whether for a city or landscape, or for rural or urban clients, each of the winning designers presents provocative and innovative designs, establishing their place in the 21st century. Through collages, drawings, computer renderings, photographs, and text, the participants explain their understanding of how good design both respects and enhances the environment. Winners in this year's competition include Cho Slade Architecture, Julia Czerniak, Anuradha Mathur and Dilip da Cunha, Rhett Russo, Terry Surjan and SYSTEMarchitects. With over 150 images of the exhibition highlights, this book presents the best of the best.
