An inspiring survey of work by architects, artists and designers distinguished by a playful, unconventionaluse of space.The design community s preoccupation with space and building beyond the limitsof classical architecture is more fascinating than ever before.

The dynamicrange of work presented in this sumptuous volume stretches the existing conceptsof temporary architecture, thus unhinging conventional definitions of spatialdesign.Spacecraft 2 features modular ephemeral structures that exist only for a limitedtime, such as pavilions, art projects and exhibition spaces. They exemplifyinnovative interventions often found in public spaces and urban environments. Italso presents projects that deal with the transient use of space such as studios,mobile habitats and pop-up stores that either adapt to their surrounding environmentsor are strikingly conspicuous.This unprecedented compendium brings together an extraordinary collectionof projects by young and little-yet-known talents and mirrors the exchange,communication and development that are engaging contemporary building practicestoday.
