Log 24 (Winter/Spring 2012) is a compilation of architecture criticism that exemplifies the range of criticism today. Encountering buildings, exhibitions, films, and books, twenty authors disentangle the challenges and problems the work poses to the critic and the architect, as well as render an incisive portrait of contemporary architecture.
The issue includes: Jeffrey Kipnis on Reiser + Umemoto’s 0-14 tower; Anthony Vidler on Colin Rowe’s review of La Tourette; Todd Gannon on Jason Payne’s “Rawhide: The New Shingle Style” at SCI-Arc; Charles Jencks on contextual counterpoint in the work of Herzog & de Meuron and Edouard François; and Craig Buckley on Frederic Druot and Lacaton, & Vassal’s transformation of Bois-le-Prêtre tower in Paris.
Also: Sylvia Lavin on Piplotti Rist’s installation at the Wexner Center; Daniel Sherer on Preston Scott Cohen’s Tel Aviv Museum; and many other contributions from Rome, Athens, Ningbo, London, New York, and Los Angeles.
Plus, a sustained examination of Metabolism’s legacy and renewed interest with Ioanna Angelidou, Tom Daniell, and Ken Tadashi Oshima.
