The term ephemeral is faithfully illustrative of our times. However, constructions with a limited lifespan have been a constant in the history of architecture. Research of materials and, above all, the evolution of design, have made this discipline an essential area of study for scholars and authorities alike. "Ephemeral Architecture" offers a wide and also rigorous selection of the best contemporary projects by some of the most daring and innovative architecture studios. The spectacular projects contained in these pages are profusely illustrated and thoroughly documented with drafts, scale and layout drawings, illustrations, renderings and photographs. The book is divided into content blocks that will allow the reader to enjoy the most innovative interventions, be they pavilions, art installations, interactive constructions, stands and finally, award winning projects within the field of temporary architecture.
