You can buy this book in our on-line design bookshop
Newly Drawn presents nine Finnish architects offices that are achieving rising international recognition, and the young architects who work there. How did they start working together? How do they collaborate? What have they achieved so far? What do they expect of the future? Their careers are only just beginning, but several competition victories, honorary mentions and significant commissions show that the future is theirs. The book’s personal and intimate approach brings the offices closer to the reader. Following interviews with the personnel and presentations of the offices, the book proceeds to the projects and their unique characteristics. In this way readers can acquaint themselves not only with the projects but also with the design process. Each office presents 4-6 projects, both completed works and those still awaiting construction. The varied and rich illustrations range from portraits of persons and offices to project illustrations and photos of completed buildings.
