100 Contemporary Architects.

100 CONTEMPORARY ARCHITECTS. Bill Lacy. New York: Harry N. Abrams, 1991. Illustrated, 272 pp., hardcover, $49.50.

An introduction to the world's top contemporary architects. Photographs of representative structures are complemented by large examples of the architect's drawings ranging from conceptual sketches to full-color renderings that would look at home on any museum wall. Readers will note familiar names--Ando, Gehry, Graves, Jahn, Meier, Pei and Weese --along with many gifted individuals respected by their peers but relatively unknown to the general public. A fascinating book emphasizing the artful side of architecture.
