Visionary Architecture by Neil Spiller
Book DescriptionArchitects have been drawing for centuries on their creative abilities to produce astonishing works of imagination, but the greatest period of experimentation has been from the Second World War to the present. This book, the first survey of the breathtakingly visionary and experimental architecture of this period, illustrates and analyses the early, radical work of many of today's most important architects as well as seminal work of earlier practitioners.

Architecture and Surrealism, Hardback (October 2016)
In a world where 'smart' objects can talk to each other and a gun can be printed with a desktop 3D printer, the conditions for contemporary design are nothing if not surreal. This book charts the development of this fertile relationship, revealing how these ideas are being put to use by contemporary architects in extraordinary ways.
Educating Architects, Hardback (October 2014)
