From the 2006 Marcus Prize Studio at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, Winy Maas of MVDRV and Grace La of UWM present the work of twelve students who explored the relationship between infrastructure, architecture, and urban form. This highly investigative studio pushed the physical and conceptual limits of given definitions of city, circulation, and program. Tested in two scenarios (one real in Tianjin, China and the other purely hypothetical), the studio severed vehicular traffic flow from its traditional two-dimensional plane and then forecast the potentials of a new, hyper-volumetric city where given urban activity inflate to fully occupy all three-dimensions. Populated by 5 million inhabitants and rising 800 meters high, this new 'sky car city' is buzzing with the flows of goods and people, as they navigate the airways in several models of newly designed air-born vehicles.

This collection traces changing conceptions of the landscape from the Enlightenment to the present by looking at routes and roads: how movement has been facilitated, imagined and represented, and how such movement in turn has conditioned our understanding of the landscape. At a time when ideas of mobility and motion and the study of landscape are central to many disciplines, this collection focuses on the often over-looked overlaps between them.

Skira presents the first-ever architecture yearbook to take stock of global architecture. Although there are several national yearbooks, such as the Dutch Yearbook, Riba Yearbook, and German Yearbook, there are no publications on the international market that take this global approach. The Skira Architecture Yearbook features over one hundred of the most interesting projects built or designed during the past year. Each project is sumptuously illustrated and many include a critique by a well-known figure and interviews with architects and designers. It also features a selection of annual indexes from the world's top architectural journals and a summary of the most important architectural events that took place throughout the world. Each year, The Skira Architecture Yearbook will also include a poster by a major architect that illustrates her/his vision of the future. Published annually only in English, Skira Architecture Yearbook is a sophisticated product of the highest graphic and editorial standards.
