An insider's look into one of contemporary architecture's most cutting-edge firms. SHoP's striking projects and unique business model are captured in this thoughtful and inventively organized monograph.
Designed in a playful and intricate manner, SHoP: Out of Practice reflects the character and attitudes of the firm itself. Thirteen projects are shown in great detail, including the Barclays Center at Atlantic Yards, Brooklyn; a master plan for the East River Waterfront, New York; and Dunescape, winner of the annual MoMA/P.S.1 competition for a summer courtyard installation. Interspersed between the projects are thematic explorations of current issues in architecture: style, risk, innovation, sustainability, and more. Also included are five essays by the SHoP partners that offer the firm's take on practice, politics, finance, technology, and sustainability.
