Made by MENDOAbout the books
Who will recognize a great book better than a bookstore? A bookstore run by graphic designers. Here’s why: at MENDO we get market feedback seven days a week, we are blessed to be surrounded by a bunch of talented, inspiring people – photographers, writers and publishers – and after being a bookstore for more than 15 years, we can easily say we know what book aficionados are looking for. Don’t you agree that initiating, creating and realizing jaw-dropping books now, only comes natural?
A MENDO publication is a well-designed book with visually stunning creative content, browsed by people to be amazed and inspired. The subject-matter is one of our pre-defined curated categories, fashion, photography, interior, sport, lifestyle, food and traveling. In general, a MENDO book is a piece of furniture in itself.
In this new book curator and writer Beatrice Galilee makes the argument that if we look around, we can find buildings, social spaces, and urban design that provide templates for what the world could, and indeed should, look like.
Architectural practice today goes far beyond the design and construction of buildings — the most exciting, forward-thinking architecture is also found in digital landscapes, art, apps, films, installations, and virtual reality.
This remarkable book features projects – surprising, beautiful, outrageous, and sometimes even frightening – that break rules and shatter boundaries. In this timely book, the work of award-winning architects, designers, artists, photographers, writers, filmmakers, and researchers – all of whom synthesize and reflect our spatial environments – comes together for the first time.
Radical Architecture of the Future’s featured architects include Diller Scofidio + Renfro, David Adjaye, SANAA, Amateur Architecture Studio, and Ensamble Studio. Artists, designers, filmmakers, and writers covered include the likes of Julie Mehretu and Wolfgang Tillmans.
