Following the success of the ﬁrst volume, Portraits of the New Architecture II introduces thirty-four new and exciting architects and architectural ﬁrms whose projects are shaping the future of architectural design. With an insightful introduction by Pulitzer Prize–winning architectural critic Paul Goldberger, this magniﬁcent volume includes sketches and designs as well as Richard Schulman’s stunning portraits of these architects’ projects. Featured architects include David Adjaye, Asymptote, Bjarke Ingles,Jeanne Gang, Dominique Perrault, Annabelle Selldorf, and Alvaro Siza. While the book emphasizes the power of contemporary architecture, Schulman’s excellent images reveal unique and intimate angles, and the sketches and layouts provide a special
perspective into each project’s genesis.
Every building, whatever its place or its purpose, is both a
social and an aesthetic statement, and who is making that
statement continues to matter.
Richard Schulman has photographed leading artists, collectors, and patrons of the arts, as well as architectural masterpieces as found in his ﬁrst book for Assouline, Portraits of the New Architecture (2004). Schulm
an’s work has appeared in The New York Times, the London Times, Vanity Fair, Paris Match, and Der Spiegel. He is currently a lecturer on the history of
photography at the School of Visual Arts in New York City.
