Publisher's description: Considering architecture in an expanded field, LOCATIONS goes far and near, big-time and smallscale, to assemble a unique set of projects, features, and reports. Each volume contains mini monographs on an ensemble of architects carrying out deeply moving work in various locations of the world addressing site, topography, materiality, and meteorology. Essays and texts by writers from various fields inspect the critical issues of our time touching architecture, cities, and our spaces of habitation. A portfolio section highlights the architecture of a selected country. Architects featured in Volume 1 are Kerry Hill, Terunobu Fujimori, C. Anjalendran, Luis Longhi, and Greg Burgess. Articles, reports and interviews form an array of texts by and on Balkrishna Doshi, Kenneth Frampton, Wang Shu, Beili Liu Arindam Chakrabarti, Suha Ozkan, Nayanika Mukherjee, Frederick Deknatel, David Robson, Philip Goad, and others.
