g. Robert Venturi, Cesar Pelli, Charles Gwathmey) with the full affirmation of new masters (e. g. Frank Gehry, Steven Holl and Peter Eisenman) and the emergence of new generations represented by Asymptote, William and Tsien, Ro. To. and Erik Owen Moss.This journey through contemporary American architecture also tries to tell of a new geographical complexity no longer restricted to the major urban centres - the traditional locations for avant- garde architecture e.

g. New York and Los Angeles. It has thus been extended to show the work of the Patkau group in Canada, Will Bruder in Arizona and Antoine Predock in New Mexico as new examples of research attentive to traditional production and to the context. Also of interest are the various building types represented, ranging from new museum complexes (e.

g. Richard Meiers Getty Center, Robert Venturis ethnographic museum in Seattle and Frank Gehrys Weisman Art Center) to residential projects (e. g. Erik Owen Mosss Samitaur, a New York residence by William and Tsien and the Carlson- Reges residence in Los Angeles by Ro.

To.) and a number of public works such as Bruders new library in Phoenix, the extension of the New York Stock Exchange by Asymptote and Steven Holls chapel of St. Ignatius in Seattle.
