Overview

How do you design a distinctive building that also fits seamlessly into its context? How do you add value to a site yet at the same time acknowledge its identity? Architecture in Context attempts to answer these questions with a carefully selected series of international, public/private, large- and small-scale projects, all of which demonstrate just that sensitivity to their environmental, cultural and social contexts.
Every project is accompanied by a descriptive and critical text and illustrated with photographs and drawings, ranging from initial concept sketches through to detailed construction drawings. The reader is given a full overview of the whole design process from ideation to construction. All these quality projects illustrate the different ways in which context can be interpreted, and the many different architectural achievements that result.
