Philip Jodido serves up yet another set of projects in the latest edition of the Architecture Now! series, Restaurants & Bars
The latest architecture and designs of restaurants and bars, from L.A. to Tokyo, is the focus of this book. Whether the challenge is merely placing furniture in a simple space, or an ambitious structural project. The book argues that restaurants and bars are the sites of our most expressive architecture; and being more ephemeral than larger facilities or entire buildings, they are more apt to capture the mood of the times.
The book goes into a indepth look at these architects and designers, and explains the reason and inspirations for these interior styles. Very colourful and asethically pleasing, Architecture Now! is full of sharp images of locations from around the world. Jodido explores recent projects and gives the biographies of the architects that worked on them.
From a skyscraper rooftop in Bangkok to a beachfront in Brazil, here are places where design, architecture, food and drink come together in inspiring combinations ranging from minimalist to extravagantly baroque. This book identifies the current trends bringing architecture and design together in a new and exciting way.
You can expect to see the likes of Stuart Forbes, Alain Ducasse and Zaha Hadid on UK-based projects such as the River cafe, The Dorchester and Home House.
