Used-Good. This full-color documentation of the 6th Mies van der Rohe Prize for European architecture details each of the 34 finalist designs. Receiving extra attention, of course, is the winning project--and one of the most talked about buildings of the last decade--Peter Zumthor's Museum of Art in Bregenz, Austria. Among the other high profile entries well illustrated in this volume are Rem Koolhaas' Villa in Bordeaux; Daniel Libeskind's Jewish Museum in Berlin; MVRDV's 100 Wozocos in Amsterdam; Nox Architecten and Oosterhuis Associate's Water Pavilion in the Netherlands; Norman Foster's headquarters for the Commerzbank in Frankfurt; Renzo Piano's Museum for the Beyeler Foundation in Basel, Switzerland; Bernard Tschumi's Le Fresnoy National Studio for the Contemporary Arts in Tourcouring, France; and Rieger &Riewe's Technical University in Graz, Austria. With essays by Dietmar Steiner and Vittorio Magnago Lampugnani and more than 170 color reproductions this volume serves as an indispensible survey of the very best in contemporary European architecture.
