Arquitectura Viva 170: Expanded Icons


Publisher Avisa


Idea Code 15123

A world style? Justified by the trademark image or prestige of the complex technology that makes them possible, iconic works are often confused with parametric ones, but all have found in globalization the ecosystem in which to thrive. In the opinion of Peter Buchanan, the eruption of icons simply marks the decline of a mannerist modernity that refuses to die. Whatever the case, we present four recent works of two of the architects who best exemplify the starchitect: Frank Gehry, with the Fondation Louis Vuitton in Paris and the Biomuseo in Panama City, and Zaha Hadid, with Wangjing Soho in Beijing and Innovation Tower in Hong Kong.
