GA Document 51: International ’97
The issue number 51 of Global Architecture Document series is titled International ’97 and it was published in April 1997. The issue gives an outlook to the superstars of contemporary architecture: Tadao Ando, Coop Himmelblau, Peter Eisenman, Norman Foster, Frank O. Gehry, Zaha Hadid, Hiroshi Hara, Steven Holl, Hans Hollein, Arata Isozaki, Toyo Ito, Rem Koolhaas, Daniel Libeskind, Ricardo Legorreta, Fumihiko Maki, Richard Meier, Enric Miralles, Morphosis, Jean Nouvel, Eric Owen Moss, Renzo Piano, Christian de Portzamparc, Richard Rogers, Alvaro Siza, Shin Takamatsu, Bernard Tschumi, Bolles + Wilson, and Tod Williams & Billie Tsien.
The architects present one project each; the projects are backgrounded by a small description and they are illustrated with photographs, drawings, diagrams, conceptual studies and sketches. Given the publication year and our current perspective, this particular GA issue is a kaleidoscope of starchitects in the early phase of their fascinating careers.
