Rick Joy and his former colleague, Wendell Burnette, are among the 20 practices explored in this handsomely illustrated survey, but at least half the architects are little-known. The authors both teach at the University of Michigan, and they've focused on five regions-New York, Boston, the mid-West, Arizona, and California. Daly Genik, Gregg Lynn, and Guthrie + Buresh (who recently moved away) represent LA. The architectural state of the Union seems strong to judge from the quality of the work presented here.

My recommendation is to pass up on this piece of drivel. If you are looking for insight, look elsewhere. What attempts to pass for "theory" or "criticism" in this book is most certainly journalism of the most affected kind. "Good" theory does not leave its subject matter untouched, it should render the object (in this case architecture) in a new light after analysis. This book offers nothing more than expository verbal descriptions of the photographic reproductions, i.e., essay length captions. "Theory" and "criticism" then, is not to be found here. What you will find, is a rather genteel purple prose that the majority of architecture students will find agreeable, but which in truth, signifies nothing.
