Research of materials and, above all, the evolution of design; have made this discipline an essential area of study for scholars and authorities alike. Ephemeral Architecture offers a wide and also rigorous selection of the best contemporary projects by some of the most daring and innovative architecture studios. The spectacular projects contained in these pages are profusely illustrated and thoroughly documented with drafts, scale and layout drawings, illustrations, renderings and photographs.
