The ideas of architects are usually conveyed by their buildings. Vladimir Belogolovsky takes a different approach in his new work. The New York based author gives a detailed picture of contemporary architects - through words. The publication consisting of almost 600 pages presents interviews with 30 architects, which Belogolovsky conducted in the framework of his long-term, international activities as a curator and author. The names of the interviewees read like a "Who-is-Who" of modern architecture.The fame surrounding these avant-garde masters has eclipsed merely professional circles and reached the conscience of the wide general public. Their iconic work has attracted so much attention over the last years in the mass media that it is often referred to as Starchitecture. Interviews with: David Adjaye, Will Alsop, Alejandro Aravena, Shigeru Ban, Elizabeth Diller, Winka Dubbeldam, Peter Eisenman, Norman Foster, Zaha Hadid, Steven Holl, Bjarke Ingels, Kengo Kuma, Daniel Libeskind, Jurgen Hermann Mayer, Giancarlo Mazzanti, Richard Meier, Paulo Mendes da Rocha, Glenn Murcutt, Gregg Pasquarelli, Joshua Prince-Ramus, Wolf Prix, Kevin Roche, Robert Stern, Sergei Tchoban and Sergey Kuznetsov, Bernard Tschumi, Robert Venturi and Denise Scott Brown, Rafael Vinoly, Alexandro Zaera-Polo.
