Urban Transformations through Exceptional Architecture

How can the complexity of architecturally exceptional projects be comprehended? What roles do the political contexts play in the commissioning of such projects and what audiences do these projects serve? How has the granting of professional recognition for architects changed and what will this change mean to measures of exceptionality in architectural design?

Articles originally published in the special issue of the Journal of Urban Design tackled diverse aspects that are relevant for understanding the nexus between urban transformations and exceptional architecture. These articles are now published in our special issue book, Urban Transformations through Exceptional Architecture.
