Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Since the late 1990s cultural icons have been built in numerous cities throughout the world in order to court the attention of potential visitors in a globally competitive market. The book CULTURE:CITY analyses this phenomenon from the point of view of artists, architects, and scientists. Does culture today still function as a guiding principle, or does it merely serve as a catalyst for spectacular buildings? Are the creative and cultural sectors the industries of the future in post-industrial societies? Do these buildings liberate or constrain the cultural activities that gave rise to them in the first place? How does the "Bilbao effect"--the revaluation of a city through prestigious cultural buildings--work? Thirty pioneers, case studies, and negative examples are assembled paradigmatically in this book. Numerous essays and illustrations provide the reader with extensive and profound insight into this phenomenon. AUTHOR: Wilfired Wang, born in Hamburg, is a partner in the office of Hoidn Wang Partner, assistant director of the architecture department at the Aksdemie der Kunste, and the O'Neil Ford Centennial Professor of Architecture, The University of Texas at Austin. ILLUSTRATIONS: 380 images
