Description - New Architects by The Architecture Foundation

Published in association with the Architecture Foundation, 'New Architects 3' showcases the wealth of emerging architectural talent in the UK. It provides a unique guide to over 85 of the most innovative and talented young architectural practices, many of which are destined to become the leading practices tomorrow. With this publication, the third in a ground breaking series that began in 1998, the Architecture Foundation continues its tradition of championing new generations of architects and helping the development of many young practices. The first edition of 'New Architects' was cited by architects and clients alike as the one key reference source for the commissioning of public and private projects, offering a critical outlook on the buoyant UK architectural scene. The Observer newspaper said of 'New Architects 2', published in 2001 by Merrell, 'In terms of providing an insight into future trends in architecture, it is hard to beat.' Today the UK scene remains lively and diverse with London marked out as arguably the pre-eminent international city for ambitious and innovative design. Yet it is still difficult for young practices to gain commissions. This brand new book, featuring practices selected by a jury of architectural professionals, represents the next generation of talent, and will be invaluable for all those interested in the best new additions to our built environment. The book arranges the featured practices in alphabetical order, and provides a comprehensive, independent expert assessment of each practice, along with contact details colour illustrations of recent projects. Offering both practical information on how to get the most out of the client/architect relationship and an overview of the architecture scene in the UK, this book will not only serve as a reference for clients, advisers and urban planners, but also as resource to inspire readers and celebrate the value of high-quality contemporary architecture.
