Hatch: booksOctober 20, 2008

The new architectural generation. Within these pages are 114 architects who will define the physical fabric of our cities for the next 30 years, as well as the theoretical and interpretative background of architectural practice worldwide. These are practitioners for whom the old professional categories do not hold, and for whom modernism is no longer the orthodoxy. As the role of architects in cities changes, young practitioners pursue a range of work as writers, critics, curators, teachers, fashion designers, computer programmers, club promoters, materials experts, engineers, installation artists, developers and builders. Critically selected, the work of each architect, writer and photographer in Hatch is examinated in detail to uncover the approaches that will come to their full fruition in the coming years and decades. 800 photographs and drawings of projects give more than just eye candy. With this book you can decide for yourself how good these young stars really are. Kieran Long is editor of the The Architects Journal. Kieran Long writes "Marco Poletto and Claudia Pasquero's studio is almost unique in contemporary London, but could be a herald of things to come.
