            Building the future: An indispensable overview of cutting-edge architecture In ideal terms, the architect exists to create what is a functional building and a work of art at the same time. The reality of the matter is of course much more complicated. Each and every building proje...ct faces a myriad of convoluted and often contradictory factors: the site, budget, client, construction companies, engineers, rules and regulations.A successful, completed structure is amasterwork of coordination, communication, imagination, and industry expertise. It requires such finely tuned teamwork that in truth more bad buildings fill our skylines than good ones. This volume brings together the good ones, and celebrates them for all their ambition and their achievement.The collection is drawn from TASCHEN s groundbreaking titleBuilding a New Millenniumand from the first four volumes of our renownedArchitecture Now!and in scouting out themost innovative and original structures, features many superstars of tomorrow alongside the field s most respected practitioners, such asSantiago Calatrava, Herzog & de Meuron, Koolhaas/OMA, Daniel Libeskind, Richard Meier, Oscar Niemeyer, andJean Nouvel.

            Fashion meets form in this essential guide to dressing up your drawings. Drape your manga creations in the wardrobe of your dreams, while learning techniques and tips used by professional illustrators to realistically render clothing and accessories of all types-from t-shirts, sw...eaters and skirts to belts, shoes and bags. How to Create Manga: Drawing Clothing and Accessories is the fashion bible every manga artist needs. Combining more than 900 drawings and the skills of twelve accomplished illustrators, this book covers a broad range of fashions. Detailed, in-depth instructions show you how to realistically render not just the garments themselves, but the folds, creases and wrinkles that give them a sense of accuracy and movement. While other manga drawing books include polished, professional looking sketches without the step-by-step instructions to get beginners to that point, the How to Create Manga series guides users through the process with actual sketch progressions, practical tips and common missteps to avoid.

            [A] provocative and jaunty romp through the dos and don''ts of writing for the internet (NYT)--the practical, the playful, and the politically correct--from BuzzFeed copy chief Emmy Favilla. A World Without Whom is Eats, Shoots & Leaves for the internet age, and Emmy Favilla is t...he witty go-to style guru of webspeak. As language evolves faster than ever, what is the future of correct writing? When Favilla was tasked with creating a style guide for BuzzFeed, she opted for guidelines that would reflect not only the site's lighthearted tone, but also how readers actually use language IRL. With wry cleverness and an uncanny intuition for the possibilities of internet-age expression, Favilla makes a case for breaking the rules: A world without whom, she argues, leaves more room for writing that's clear, timely, pleasurable, and politically aware. Featuring priceless emoji strings, sidebars, quizzes, and style debates among the most lovable word nerds in the digital media world--of which Favilla is queen-A World Without Whom is essential for readers and writers of news articles, blog posts, tweets, texts, emails, and whatever comes next . . . so basically everyone.
