Hopkins in the City
Edited by Adam Caruso and Helen Thomas
At the start of the 1980s, Michael Hopkins and Partners was a successful architecture firm in London, with a solid track record of design and building. By the start of the 1990s, they had established themselves as innovators at the highest level. That work is most evident in five urban buildings in England that they built in that period; those buildings are the focus of Hopkins in the City.

Smiljan Radic’s Collection of Radical Architecture
Edited by Fredi Fischli, Niels Olsen, Smiljan Radic, and Patricio Mardones

The book features works by Guy Debord, Asger Jorn, Haus-Rucker-Co, Archigram, Utopie, and many others. Cloud ’68 also contains interview fragments by the critic and curator Hans Ulrich Obrist, who talked to the key figures of these movements.

Exploring the Architecture of Place in America’s Public and Farmers Markets
Kathryn Clarke Albright
This volume draws attention to the simple but elusive architectural space of public and farmers markets. It discusses three seminal types of markets—heritage building, open-air pavilion, and pop-up canopy—demonstrating the characteristics of each type using a mixture of narrative and illustration. The narrative combines historically informed architectural observation with interview material drawn from conversations the author has had over the years with market managers, vendors, and shoppers.
