Phaidon Editors

"The best home-improvement advice we can give is to buy Phaidon's third book in the 10 x 10 series... What marks this book out is its vast size, the crisp presentation and the quality of commentary from the experts."—GQ

"A must for anyone who is interested in contemporary and new buildings... An insightful commentary on contemporary building design and a forecast of how it will develop."—Financial Times

"A bookend to the boom years and hints at a more responsible future... As a collection of objects, these buildings are more prepossessing, more refined than their predecessors a decade ago... What is interesting about 10x10_3 is how well it reflects the new mood. Given how suddenly the financial crisis hit architecture, you might expect this book to be a monument to recent libertarianism or a graveyard of visionary projects never to be completed. That is definitely not the case. To their credit, the critics (especially the younger ones) have done justice to a new generation of architects who are not just interested in building objects... Excellent."—ICON
