Following on from the comprehensive book, the Phaidon Atlas of 21st Century Architecture, Greatest Buildings of the 21st Century looks at the most remarkable projects built internationally since the turn of the millennium. The book includes a wide range of project types such as stadia, theatres, bridges and government buildings. Each project has been chosen based on factors such as its innovative use of materials, its scale or construction techniques. This book offers an accessible overview of the most extraordinary buildings from around the world, built by both established architects and new, emerging talents. Designed for a general readership, each project is given two double page spreads with a comprehensive selection of images of the exterior and interior, and an informative text about the building and its context. Buildings featured will include such notable projects as the National Stadium in Beijing, China by Herzog & de Meuron, the Casa da Musica in Porto, Portugal by Rem Koolhaas/OMA, the Millau Viaduct in Millau, France by Foster + Partners, and the Scottish Parliament in Edinburgh, United Kingdom by Miralles Tagliabue/EMBT.
