Shape: Is Global Design Generic?

Shape: Is Global Design Generic?

In stock (50 items available)
Architecture is becoming more global and exchangeable, removed from any location-based identity, as national characteristics are supplanted worldwide by a single architectural language and repertoire of typologies. Shape shows that global design does not depend on scale or location; the collages in the book show icons of consumption taken out of context and set in landscapes and cityscapes, creating the impression of a seemingly natural architectural setting.
