Editors: R. Klanten, L. Feireiss for the Berlin-based international publisher Gestalten www.gestalten.com to be launched in Spring 2009
Like its successful predecessor, Spacecraft 2 showcases international projects by architects, artists and designers that meet the changing spatial needs of our modern lifestyles and that are simultaneously expanding our current understanding of architecture. This sumptuous volume further documents a dynamic range of ephemeral structures such as pavilions, art projects and exhibition spaces as well as transient architecture including mobile habitats, and vacations homes that inconspicuously adapt to their natural or urban environments.
