The range covers small mountain cabins through to medium size residential and school buildings all the way to large offices, factory buildings and cultural and leisure facilities.
Architectural Guide Shenzhen
The southern Chinese city of Shenzhen was built almost overnight. Before the region was declared a Special Economic Zone during Deng Xiaoping's 1978 reforms, only some 30,000 farmers and fishers lived there. Since then it was built from the ground up at a rapid pace - the infamous 'Shenzhen Speed' - and grew to what is now a pulsating high-tech metropolis. The Architectural Guide Shenzhen presents the architecture of China's most famous foundational city through 150 buildings and places.
Hong Kong Modern
Architecture of the 1950s-1970s
In the post-war decades, Hong Kong architects - many of them having migrated from China or studied overseas - embraced modern principles when they were forced to face the problems of housing shortage, mass construction and limited budgets, problems that are still present to this very day in the city. Hong Kong Modern. Architecture of the 1950s-1970s provides an unprecedented comprehensive overview on the architecture of that transformative period in the former British colony. In his book, the author Walter Koditek documents more than 300 buildings and ensembles.
Architectural Guide Izmir
Founded as Smyrna in ancient Greece, then taken over by the Romans; during the Ottoman Empire a cosmopolitan, multiethnic port city and now one of Turkey's most important metropolises - with over 8,000 years of uninterrupted history, Izmir is among the world’s oldest cities. In the Architectural Guide Izmir the geographer and urban planner Mehmet Çelik presents the diverse architectural heritage of the city - among them the works of architects like Gustave Eiffel and Bruno Taut - through a selection of 265 buildings ranging from antiquity to the present.
Architectural Guide Chicago
A Critic's Guide to 100 Post-Modern Buildings in Chicago from 1978 to 2025
Post-Modern buildings in Chicago up to 2025? The movement famously came to an end in the 1990s, and Chicago is home to many magnificent examples in all conceivable styles. The Architectural Guide Chicago, however, mainly focuses on contemporary buildings by architects who are still alive today. The critic and curator Vladimir Belogolovsky presents one hundred projects, most of which were actually created after the millennium, and which he defines in the sense of an artistic, undogmatic diversity as Post-Modern.
Architectural Guide Verona and Lake Garda
In his Architectural Guide Verona and Lake Garda, architectural historian Sergey Nikitin-Rimsky presents the architectural witnesses of this city that is so steeped in history - with additional excursions into the neighbouring Valpolicella and Lake Garda regions. In four routes the author leads the reader through the city by the meandering Adige River and describes some 120 projects.
Christ & Gantenbein
New Ways of Working
In September of 2021, after some two years of construction, the Multifunctional Workspace Building on the campus of the Roche Pharma AG in the southwest German town of Grenzach-Wyhlen, was officially declared open. Christ & Gantenbein have devised a flexible and forward-looking office building that inspires the development of new ways of working and impresses with its simple, but clear design.

Architecture for Urban Living
The age of cities has long since begun and the issue of housing is becoming steadily aggravated. Globally more and more people are moving to urban conurbations, which have become engines for social change and diversity, and whose density is in many places increasing significantly. At Home. Architecture for Urban Living documents 26 such current urban housing projects from Europe and Japan, that organise urban living in different ways - from townhouses to cooperative housing complexes, and from multi-generation houses to subsidised model neighbourhoods.
