In this book selected contemporary architects and critics focus on the theme of rigor in architecture. They investigate the difficulties in sustaining the clarity of a design idea from its inception to the final details and the corresponding difficulty the critic has in tracing this process. A project section includes the work of emerging practitioners from Europe and the United States. The book concludes with a section on the work of Eileen Gray and Heinrich Tessenow.
