Morphosis is headed by Thom Mayne, 2005 winner of the Pritzker Prize. The eighteen projects presented in this volume were all conceived within the past seven years, and have been selected to illustrate the continuation of Mayne’s interest in an architecture of complexity – one that promotes difference, the pursuit of ambiguity, inclusion, the coexistence of apparent contradictions, imperfection, and more. Through diverse programmes, the chosen works reveal the scope of the practice’s research and design activity. Included are the Perot Museum, Cornell University’s Bill & Melinda Gates Hall, China’s National Art Museum, Quay Quarter Sydney, and ENI Headquarters in Italy.
