Phaidon has announced its architecture titles for spring 2016. Phaidon’s complete catalogue is available here.
Nanotecture: Tiny Built Things (1 March, £14.95)
Nanotecture: Tiny Built Things by Rebecca Roke brings together 300 small works of architecture, from pavilions, sheds and tree houses to homes for dogs, cats and bees. Each project illustrates how internationally established and emerging architects embrace the freedom to experiment with materials and design concepts when working on a small scale.
This Brutal World (23 May, £29.95)
This Brutal World is a global survey of Brutalist architecture from early 20th century to the present day. The book, by graphic designer Peter Chadwick, features projects by major architects associated with the movement including Le Corbusier, Paul Rudolph and Marcel Breuer, and virtually unknown Brutalist treasures from across the world. Crucially, it redefines the term ‘Brutal’ to include other giants of the 20th century like Frank Lloyd Wright and Mies van der Rohe as well as major contemporary architects such as Zaha Hadid, Rem Koolhaas and Herzog & de Meuron.
Other new architecture titles include major monographs on Marcel Breuer (25 April, £100) and Sou Fujimoto (23 May, £39.95), Selldorf Architects: Portfolio and Projects (25 April, £49.95), a comprehensive book examining a range of houses, galleries and public spaces Selldorf Architects have designed across the world, and Peter Marino: Art Architecture, a look at the collaborative process by which architect Peter Marino has incorporated site-specific art works into his practice.
