The book addresses the five keys to interpreting contemporary architecture; Learning, Education, Playing, Caring and Dwelling.
The book highlights the importance of a social human-oriented architectural design focus throughout various building typologies ranging from public buildings and schools to social housing projects. The new projects chosen provide an understanding of how a contemporary social and functional intention is expressed within modern architecture and how the architectural design, tradition, and functional dimensions presently take form in new buildings and projects.
