Log 24 (Winter/Spring 2012)

Log 24 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.
