Pacific Edge Summary

Pacific Edge: Contemporary Architecture on the Pacific Rim by Peter Zellner

The aim of this first all-encompassing survey of the Pacific region's contemporary architecture is to show how 33 of the most cutting-edge and innovative architecture and design studies have created buildings by drawing on the stylistic conflicts and dynamism that reverberate across the Pacific. Presented thematically, each studio is profiled in depth, with texts, photographs, line drawings, sketches and extended captions. In counterpoint to the book's thematic structure, three essays by internationally recognized architecture and design writers Aaron Betsky, Davina Jackson and Akira Suzuki consider the regional characteristics of western America, Oceania and Asia.
