Beyond the West: New Global Architecture

Designer: Gestalten Verlag

- +
Beyond The West inspires a fresh understanding of global contemporary architecture beyond the Western Countries.

Architects throughout the world work against a backdrop of rapidly growing cities, changing societies and climate, and emerging economies. But while Western architecture has largely dominated the discourse, architecture firms from Africa, Asia and the Americas have been establishing local and global -recognition for themselves, often finding strikingly different solutions to local requirements, including sustainability, transportation and migration, construction materials, and traditions.

Beyond The West journeys across Asia, Africa, and the Americas to understand how local architects respond to a changing world, and focuses its wide lens on inspiring and truly global architecture.
