Hatch - The New Architectural Generation by Kieran Long
“They do not all know each other, but many of them do - or will soon. Who knows? Perhaps this book might also encourage that process.” Kieran Long on those featured in Hatch
Hatch: The New Architectural Generation, by Kieran Long and published by Laurence King in August 2008 is a portrait of the architectural work produced by a new generation that will soon take the lead in the practice and discourse of architecture across the world.
More than 100 of the brightest new stars feature in this book, showcasing their unique projects and their ideas for the future. These are practitioners for whom the old categories do not hold and for whom modernism is no longer the orthodoxy.
The author Kieran Long, has selected work not only from a new generation of the most cutting-edge architects, but also from architectural thinkers, academics, photographers, writers and even bloggers to uncover the approaches to architecture that will come to their fruition in the coming years and decades. Long (editor of Architects’ Journal) also traces the links that make those featured in the book a connected generation.
Work ranges from Swiss military bunkers built into and disguised as rock formations, right through to FAT’s (Fashion Architecture Taste) Dutch Gabled, social housing project in Manchester, UK. Fiona Meadows, architect and curator at the Cité de l’architecture et du patrimoine discusses why, in architecture, BIG may not necessarily be the most beautiful and Italian born architect/engineer/designer Elena Manferdini highlights the cross-over between her fashion design and her architecture.
Kieran Long is editor of The Architects’ Journal, and is author of New London Interiors (2004) and co-author of Architects Today(2004). He is also curating an exhibition about emerging UK architecture at the Aedes gallery in Berlin (forthcoming).
